If you are planning to undertake a kitchen remodel, apart from considering the cost, one of the main things that you will be wondering is, “How long does it take to remodel a kitchen?”. Whether you need your remodel to be finished before a big holiday or event or simply want to know how long it will be until you can make home-cooked meals again, here is everything you need to know.
What is the average time for a kitchen remodel?
As you may expect, the time it takes to complete a kitchen remodel depends on the size of the project, whether you’re hiring a team or planning to do it yourself, whether your desired materials are available, and what is required to complete your dream design.
That said, regarding a complete custom renovation of a large kitchen, the average time to remodel a kitchen is somewhere between 10-14 weeks. If you are looking to remove walls, make structural changes, or switch up the floor plan, it may take around 4 months to complete the project.
In what order do you remodel a kitchen to save time?
Any kitchen remodel should be kept to a schedule to avoid any delays to the project and save time in the long run. Let’s review Corner's Renovation Stages:

Why do kitchen remodels take so long?
There are so many steps that go into kitchen remodeling, there are probably some that you have never even thought of.
One of the biggest time-eaters is having to wait for custom cabinets to be delivered once they have been ordered. Fully-custom cabinets can take around 10 to 14 weeks to arrive. This is why it is so important to start the ordering process as soon as possible and don’t start demolishing your existing kitchen until all of your materials have arrived.
There are also a lot of steps that need to be completed before cabinets can be installed, outlined below, which can take a month or more to complete depending on how much construction there is to be done.
