Remodeling a kitchen from top to bottom is an incredibly large undertaking that involves lots of details to consider. If you’re not properly prepared, a full kitchen renovation can seem a bit daunting. Fortunately, kitchen remodeling in St. Louis, MO, is made simpler with the expert team at JM Construction/JM Kitchen and Bath.

So what can you expect during a kitchen remodel? We’ve broken down the process into five steps.
Step 1: Planning Your Kitchen Remodel
The first task is to hire a contractor. They’ll aid you in defining the project’s scope and creating a budget. During this phase, you’ll choose all of the finishes including cabinet style, countertops, backsplash, appliances, flooring, and paint color.
Step 2: Ordering
This phase usually takes 1-2 months for all of the materials to arrive. Stock items will take less time to arrive than ordering custom cabinets, which could take a little extra time.
Step 3: Rough Construction
This can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks, depending on the scope of the work and assuming that all of the supplies have arrived on time. This time involves demolishing and building out the structural features and framing of the room as well as plumbing and electrical connections, walls, floors, and ceilings. But if the old kitchen footprint is preserved, then this step could be completed in a week or less.
Step 4: Finish Construction
With the framing, wiring, and plumbing complete, step four involves the aesthetics and functionality of the kitchen. Kitchen fixtures such as cabinets, countertops, and appliances are installed and put into place.
Step 5: Enjoy Your New Kitchen!
With the right remodeling company on your side, the remodeling process can run smoothly. The team at JM Construction/JM Kitchen and Bath will handle all the details, allowing you to enjoy this fun and exciting experience stress-free.
