How long does a Kitchens Perth Kitchen Renovation take?
(We are one of quickest in town)
Renovating a kitchen is an exciting process to transform the heart of your home into a functional and aesthetically pleasing space. One of the most common questions that we are asked here at Kitchens Perth is “How long will it take to complete my kitchen renovation”
Our straightforward kitchen renovations which require no building work take as little as five days, with the kitchen being removed on the Monday, plumbing and electrical completed and then cabinet and stone benchtops are installed with services re-connected by the Friday.
With all these date pre-confirmed with you in writing to make sure all are aware exactly which trades are arriving and on what days. The below information is a guide that lists out the average duration of kitchen renovation and other key considerations that influence the time for completion.
Understanding the Factors
Several factors contribute to the time frame of a kitchen renovation project. These include:
1. Scope of Renovation
The extent of your renovation plays a crucial role in determining the duration. Are you planning to keep the same shape as your existing or will your renovation involve major structural alterations? A simple full replacement without any building works is a much faster timeframe than one that involves walls and windows being removed, but most of our renovations without any building work take one week and with building work 1 – 2 weeks.
2. Removal and Prep Work
The initial phase of any renovation involves removal and preparation. This includes removing old fixtures, cabinets, and appliances. Depending on the complexity of this phase this usually takes not more than a day.
3. Manufacture and Installation
The bulk of the renovation time is dedicated to manufacturing the kitchen and then installation of the kitchen and stone benchtop can be done in as little as a day but sometimes can take 2 days, this involves the task of installing cabinetry and benchtop. At Kitchens Perth, we are proud of the fact that we have one of the fastest turnaround times in relation to cabinetry and bench tops.
4. Finishing Touches
Adding finishing touches such as painting and flooring are important steps that should be included. These details contribute significantly to the overall appearance of the kitchen. Depending on the complexity of those final touches, this phase usually takes the renovation into the second week.
5. Unexpected Delays
I can honestly say, that in the last 100 renovations, we have not had a single delay on a project and amazingly this was even through COVID.
6. Average Timelines for Different Types of Kitchen Renovations
While the timeline for kitchen renovations can vary from one to two weeks, here are some general guidelines based on the scope of the project:
7. Moderate Renovation
A moderate renovation that involves replacing benchtops, cabinets, and appliances will take around one week. This timeline accounts for the demolition, construction, and installation phases. Finishing touches like painting and splashbacks take them into the 2nd week.
8. Large Renovation with Building work ( by our separate registered builder that we organise on your behalf)
For a kitchen renovation that involves major structural changes such as walls being removed, windows being bricked up or added, rewiring, plumbing adjustments, and custom features, the renovation timeline can extend to 1.5 – three weeks
9. Tips for Managing the Renovation Timeline
While every renovation project is unique, there are several strategies you can employ to help manage the timeline effectively:
10. Plan Thoroughly
Before Kitchens Perth start the kitchen renovation the designer spends ample time designing, planning, and then scheduling. . 3D drawings are clearly designed enabling clients to have a clear vision of what is required or desired which in turn prevents any future mistakes from happening.
11. Set Realistic Expectations
Understand that unexpected delays can occur ( but this is very rare). By setting realistic expectations from the beginning, you can better handle any obstacles that arise during the renovation process.
12. Communicate with Your Project Manager
Maintain open communication with your Project Manager throughout the project. At Kitchens Perth, we give our clients regular updates and discussions keeping the client informed about the progress and any potential delays.
13. There can be some extras
If items have not been discussed as items were not noticed in the design process but then uncovered through the demolition stage there could be some variation when we get to the site. They are always mostly smaller items and never add too much of a percentage to the renovation cost.
14. Be Flexible
Flexibility is key during a renovation. Understand that some disruptions to your daily routine are inevitable, and a flexible approach can help you navigate these changes more smoothly.
15. In Closing
While the duration of a kitchen renovation varies based on factors like the scope of works, planning, and products being available. A well-managed Kitchen Renovation by Kitchens Perth can bring wonderful positive lifestyle changes and quality of life which prove to be worth the investment for future years.
By understanding the factors that influence the timeline and employing effective strategies for managing it, you can embark on your kitchen renovation journey with Kitchens Perth with ease and confidence. Careful planning and communication throughout the kitchen renovation process will contribute to a successful and satisfying renovation experience.
