Before you start a kitchen project, it’s vital to be aware of how long it’ll take. This will help you schedule it for a good time and stop it from clashing with any other projects. To give you an estimate of how long your project will take, we’ve put together a kitchen project timeline.
How long will a kitchen project take?
Research: 1 week
The majority of successful home improvement projects have some solid research behind them. Reserve plenty of time for looking into the kind of kitchen work you want doing. You should also prioritise looking for kitchen fitters and getting quotes.
To get in touch with local kitchen professionals, use our service or ask relatives or friends for suggestions. Once you’ve submitted your enquiry with us, our companies should get in touch with you within 48 hours.
After you’ve got quotes from several professionals, search for customer reviews to help you work out which one to pick. A quality professional should be able to provide you with examples of some positive customer feedback.
Fitting time: 4 hours – 1 week
Once you’ve picked a professional and they’re ready to start work, you should be able to get your new kitchen in place fairly quickly. If you just need new work tops fitting, this will probably take between 4 hours and a day (depending on the size of your kitchen). Fitting new cabinets tend to take 1-3 days and appliances can take up to 2 days to install. If you want all of these jobs doing, the work’s likely to take up to a week.
Don’t forget that if you have a particularly large or awkward-shaped kitchen, your project could take longer. You might also have to wait for your kitchen goods to be manufactured or delivered, especially if they’re custom-made.
Total time: 1-2 weeks
So typically, your kitchen project will probably take 1-2 weeks. To find local pros to help you with your project, complete our online form. We’ll connect you with up to 4 kitchen fitters.
