Your Simplified Kitchen Remodeling Checklist

A simple list of to-do’s for a kitchen remodeling project can help you stay organized throughout the project, from start to finish. Today, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Elizabethtown shares a handy guide that we hope will be a big help during your kitchen remodel!


Kitchen remodeling usually takes six to eight weeks on average. If you have other projects to be done before or after your kitchen renovation, make sure to allot sufficient time for each.


It’s important for home remodeling contractors to be clear on your budget, as this enables us to provide appropriate recommendations for your project. Failing to share this figure with your contractor may result in higher expenses for you.

Kitchen Appliances

When shopping for appliances, make sure they match the style of your new kitchen. Consider their measurements too — will they fit your kitchen space? Additionally, don’t forget to check delivery times and installation costs. These two factors can affect your project schedule and budget.

Prep Work

Your contractor will do some prep work, but you also have to take care of a few things before the crew arrives at your home. For example, you might want to clean up your kitchen and remove old appliances. You should also consider setting up a working kitchen in another room where you can prepare meals during the remodel.

Install & Decorate

Here are some additional things that you should check during the installation and decoration stages of your kitchen remodel:

  1. Countertops
  2. Backsplash
  3. Drawers & cabinets
  4. Sink & faucet
  5. Disposal
  6. Flooring
  7. Lighting fixtures
