How long does a kitchen remodel take?
A kitchen remodel can take anywhere from three weeks to five months, depending on the size of your kitchen, the scope of the project, and the work your kitchen remodeler needs to do. The best way to determine the timeframe is to speak with your remodeling company for a customized quote and timeline.
When you work with Ballroom Baths & Home Design, we expect our remodeling process to take six to nine weeks, but this timeline can vary. We will order all of your supplies and materials before beginning work, so you don’t have to worry about shipping delays. We’re here to do the job right!
How can I upgrade my kitchen without a full kitchen remodel?
You don’t necessarily need to remodel your kitchen completely to transform its look. Here are some suggestions to give your kitchen a fresh feel:
- Create custom cabinets with a new coat of paint and new hardware.
- Change out your cabinet doors and drawers for a new style.
- Swap your old lighting fixtures for more modern options.
- Invest in a new kitchen table and set of chairs
- Repaint your dining furniture or incorporate new decor.
You can also update your appliances and flooring, which you might overlook but make a huge difference for your kitchen.
Is kitchen remodeling easier than bathroom remodeling?
Bathroom remodeling is often cheaper and faster than kitchen remodeling, but kitchen remodeling has a higher return on investment. During a kitchen remodel, you may have brand-new lighting, custom cabinets, appliances, floors, and more. The entire layout of the space could change, but both remodels are complex jobs to execute.
At Ballroom Baths & Home Design, we can examine your kitchen and bathrooms to see which remodel would be easier and cost less. However, it is entirely up to you which type of remodel you want to pursue. Doing both at the same time may be difficult if you plan to stay in your home during the construction process, but it is definitely possible.
How much does it cost to remodel a kitchen?
A minor kitchen remodel may cost around $10,000 to $15,000, while a major remodel could run as high as $40,000. The cost of your kitchen remodel depends on your budget and plans. Your kitchen remodeling team will plan a design around your budget, personal style, and preferences.
Should I live in my home during a kitchen remodel?
It is possible to live in your home while your kitchen remodel or renovation is underway. Whether or not you stay home during your remodel depends on what you are comfortable with. However, staying with friends or family or in a hotel gives you a place away from the noise and mess of the remodeling process. You will also need to have a reliable place to cook or get food during the process since your kitchen will be under construction.
Clients who do not stay at their homes during their remodel can truly experience the surprise of the finished project. It also makes returning home exciting and enjoyable.
What can I expect from a kitchen remodeling project?
You can expect a fun and exciting process for your kitchen remodeling project. You’ll meet with the Ballroom Baths & Home Design team to discuss what you want to get out of the remodel. We’ll listen to your design ideas and must-haves and present potential planning options.
Our staff will order all necessary supplies, appliances, fixtures, and materials before starting work. Our contractors will perform the remodel and keep you updated on the progress. Once our work is complete and flawless, we’ll reveal your newly remodeled kitchen and see your jaw drop!
Do kitchen renovations increase the value of a home?
Kitchen renovations do increase your home’s value. If you plan to sell your home, potential buyers will enjoy a newly updated and professionally remodeled kitchen, and you may receive higher offers because of it. Homeowners can get a good return on investment, about 60%, with a kitchen remodel.
How should I plan for my kitchen remodel?
You should properly plan for your kitchen remodel by determining how your family uses the space, what changes will benefit you, and what is not working about the existing area. Consider what you want in your dream kitchen, but don’t forget about function! Some aspects to think about for your kitchen remodel include upper cabinets, a kitchen island, tile backsplash, color schemes, seating ideas, and your style inspiration.
Can I see examples of Ballroom Baths' previous work?

This will give you a sense of their design aesthetic and the quality of our workmanship. You can also watch video testimonials from satisfied customers to learn more about their experience working with Ballroom Baths.
