Our Kitchen Remodel Process
Our kitchen renovation contractors will give you an affordable kitchen remodel that you’ll love. Throughout the whole process you’ll have consistent points of contact that will help educate, advise, and apprise you of every situation and need. Read the follow to get an idea of what your kitchen remodel process will look like.
Step 1: Kitchen Remodeling Consultation
Your consultation will involve exploring our showroom as well as our team seeing your kitchen in person. Ahead of your kitchen design appointment, explore for inspiration and take initial measurements of your space. Come prepared with this and your initial ideas on budget. When you come to the showroom, you’ll be able to explore all of our different kitchen products in person. Want a wine rack? Need a kitchen island? Dreaming of an open concept kitchen or a decorative window? Let us know! This information will help us to better explain the kitchen construction process and make your wish list a reality. After we’ve discussed your wants and needs, we’ll also make sure that your design won’t have any issues with pre existing structural, plumbing, or electrical hurdles.
Step 2: Design and Product Selection
At our showroom, you’ll work with your designer to select the right kitchen cabinets, countertops, fixtures and more. We have one of the largest variety of kitchen products available in our showroom in Essex County.
Once your space has been vetted and your production selection completed, your designer will create a written proposal for the project as well as a 3D color rendering of your new kitchen. It will be at this time that the design goes through any final revisions. Upon signing off and material orders placed, you’ll meet with our kitchen contractor and carpentry team to discuss installation.
Step 3: Prepping Your Kitchen Remodel
Ahead of starting your kitchen remodel, you and your contractor will make sure that building permits are acquired for any structural, electrical, plumbing, or mechanical changes to your kitchen. When your products have arrived, they will be inspected for quality assurance and will need to be stored in a dry area that is ideally climate controlled.
Assuming that all products pass our quality assurance, RWC will be ready to start building your kitchen. To make things as efficient as possible, please make sure to pack up everything in your kitchen and place it in a safe space. A temporary kitchen equipped with a refrigerator and cooking appliances. An outdoor grill can also serve as an effective solution for your cooking needs.
Step 4: Initial Construction
Depending on the steps needed to remodel your kitchen space, your initial construction period will last 1-6 weeks. During this period, your kitchen will be demolished for any potential structural changes that follow. After structural changes, utility work will be done to update anything mechanical, electrical, or plumbing related. After confirmation of all structural and utility work being sound, the RWC team will work to install drywall, flooring, and paint surfaces.
Step 5: Completing Your Kitchen Remodel
With the initial construction phase completed, the most fun part begins with the installation of all hardware and appliances. Cabinets and countertops will be measured and fabricated as needed ahead of installation, followed by the installation of your stove, refrigerator and other appliances and fixtures. From here finishing details such as cabinet hardware and crown molding are installed, before finally finishing with the backsplash.
At this point, in the likely scenario that building permits were needed for construction, a final inspection will be needed from a building inspector. Once inspection is passed, final cleanup of the room will ensure that your new kitchen is free of any dust and debris!

Kitchen Remodeling FAQ
Depending on the work that is being done, a kitchen remodel can range from a few weeks to complete a project to multiple months. Kitchen size, scope of work and project complexity are going to be the three most common factors you’ll want to consider. In recent years due to the pandemic, some products have also had longer delivery times, which consequently delayed completion of the related remodel.
In each case, we work to accomplish each project with minimal kitchen downtime for you and your family. If you have any questions or concerns about project timelines, we’ll be happy to answer them during your free design consult.
Just like with project timelines, kitchen remodels are going to vary in price based on project scope, kitchen size, products desired, and project complexity. In general, considering 5% to 15% of your home value is a good place to start your budget. For most minor kitchen remodels, expect to spend $20,000 or more. If you break down the different costs of your kitchen remodel, they’ll likely be distributed something similar to the following:
- Cabinetry and hardware: 29%
- Installation: 17%
- Appliances and ventilation: 14%
- Countertops: 10%
- Flooring: 7%
- Walls and ceilings: 5%
- Lighting: 5%
- Doors and windows: 4%
- Design fees: 4%
- Faucets and plumbing: 4%
- Other: 1%
The kitchen will forever be the heart of the home, which is why kitchen remodels can often see high returns on their investment in home appraisal value. Minor kitchen remodels are often capable of seeing up to 80 – 90% return on investment.
However, knowing which projects will provide the most value is important. A project to upgrade the kitchen is likely to to see nice returns on investment, but not if you were installing a $20,000 stovetop in a starter home. It’s also crucial to take care of the fundamental aspects of your home first, such as a leaky roof.
