Set Kitchens – Kitchen Remodel

Frequently asked questions on kitchen and bathroom design and remodeling services.

Pre-Construction

The duration of a kitchen remodel can vary widely depending on the scope of the project. On average, a full kitchen remodel can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks.

The cost of a kitchen remodel can range from $9,000 to $38,000 or more, depending on the size of the kitchen, the quality of materials, and the complexity of the project.

To budget for a kitchen remodel, determine your priorities, research costs, get multiple estimates, and set aside a contingency fund of 10-20% for unexpected expenses.

Current trends include open-concept layouts, smart appliances, minimalist cabinetry, bold backsplashes, and sustainable materials.

Key factors include layout, functionality, storage, lighting, and the selection of durable and easy-to-maintain materials.

Consider durability, maintenance, aesthetic appeal, and budget when choosing materials. Popular options include quartz or granite countertops, hardwood or laminate flooring, and custom or semi-custom cabinets.

The best layout depends on the size and shape of your kitchen. Common layouts include L-shaped, U-shaped, galley, and open-plan designs. The work triangle (sink, stove, refrigerator) should be efficient.

Maximize storage with pull-out shelves, lazy Susans, vertical dividers, deep drawers, and utilizing wall space for hanging racks or shelves.

Open shelving provides easy access and a modern look but can attract dust and require more frequent organization. Traditional cabinets offer concealed storage but can make a space feel smaller.

Set a realistic budget, prioritize essential items, get detailed quotes from contractors, avoid last-minute changes, and keep track of expenses throughout the project.

Permit requirements vary by location but typically include electrical, plumbing, and building permits. Check with your local building department for specific requirements.

Use energy-efficient appliances, install LED lighting, choose energy-saving windows and doors, and consider low-flow faucets and sustainable materials.

Expect some disruption to your daily routine, noise, dust, and workers in your home. Clear communication with your contractor can help manage expectations and minimize inconvenience.

Yes, but it can be challenging. Set up a temporary kitchen in another area of your home, plan for easy meals, and be prepared for limited access to your main kitchen.

Consider your cooking habits, kitchen layout, and energy efficiency. Research brands, read reviews, and test appliances in person if possible.

Get recommendations, check references, review portfolios, verify licensing and insurance, and get detailed, written estimates before making a decision.


Common mistakes include not planning thoroughly, underestimating the budget, ignoring the kitchen work triangle, choosing trendy over timeless designs, and not hiring professionals when needed.

Incorporate personal style through color choices, backsplash designs, hardware finishes, lighting fixtures, and decorative elements that reflect your taste.

Clear out the kitchen, set up a temporary cooking area, protect adjacent rooms from dust, and communicate with your contractor about any specific concerns or requirements.
