A: On average, you should invest 5-15% of your home's current market value on a complete kitchen remodel (products and installation). Factor in 1/3 of the budget for cabinets, 1/3 for countertops, sinks, faucets and appliances and 1/3 for installation of the project.
A: A typical kitchen remodel takes between 8 to 12 weeks from the time you initially meet with our kitchen designer to the installation of all products. Our designer will schedule a professional measure of your kitchen performed by a Home Depot installer. Upon receiving your measurements, our expert produces a preliminary design and schedules an initial consultation with you to explore, plan and create the kitchen of your dreams. One or more scheduled sessions with our designer is typical for assisting you in making your product selections and arriving at a design that is truly yours. After your final approval and subsequent product payment, manufacturing and shipping usually takes 3 to 5 weeks. When the product(s) arrives at your site, the installer will check in items and schedule the installation at your convenience.
Our cabinet refacing and N-Hance programs have very short turn-around times. See a Home Depot designer for details.
