Your Kitchen Remodeling Checklist

Before starting a kitchen remodel, make sure you have the entire process planned out. This will help you manage your expectations and properly track your progress.

In this article, DreamMaker® Bath and Kitchen of Minneapolis shares a complete checklist for kitchen remodeling to help you ensure everything you need is in order.


Figure out how much you can actually spend on your project. Based on that amount, your contractor can help you find materials that are suited for your budget.


What’s your target completion date? Typically, a remodel takes about six to eight weeks. If you have other projects lined up or you want to do a bathroom remodel before fixing up your kitchen, make sure that these jobs are well-coordinated in terms of schedule and logistics.

Appliances and Kitchen Items

Make a list of the appliances and kitchen items you need. Apart from their aesthetics, ensure that the products will fit your kitchen. Determine the amount of space you want to allocate for each appliance. When ordering, ask about delivery times and installation costs.


Clean out your kitchen, and get rid of your old appliances and cabinets. Also, you might want to set up a working kitchen and rent a trash container.

  1. Base and wall cabinets
