Renovating your kitchen is a serious project that involves a significant commitment of time and money. For the best results that satisfy your needs and desired aesthetics, it’s essential to partner with a trusted and highly-rated renovation provider – rather than a one-size-fits-all kitchen company.
At Dégabriele Kitchens and Interiors, we design and build bespoke kitchens for each client based on their style preferences, budget, and lifestyle. Below, we’ve outlined what the timeline for designing a new kitchen should look like – and how our process differs from other providers.
Designing a custom kitchen vs. buying a prefabricated kitchen
If you want a kitchen that is built specifically for your needs, your best option is to work with a bespoke renovation company. These providers can help you design custom-made cabinets, benchtops, storage, lighting, flooring, and more, so you end up with the kitchen of your dreams.
Typically, the process of designing, manufacturing, and installing bespoke kitchen cabinets can take up to two months. Combine that with the planning and building of the rest of the kitchen, and you should realistically expect a three-month timeline for your entire kitchen remodel.
Although this might seem like a significant time commitment, it’s well worth it when you consider the perks of a kitchen designed just for you. (We’ll explain several of the benefits later in this article.)
On the other hand, other kitchen companies and big-box retailers boast the completion of a full kitchen remodel in two or three weeks. While this may sound appealing at first, it’s important to understand what you sacrifice in exchange for these quick timelines.
Often, these companies have countless prefabricated cabinets sitting in a warehouse, which are shipped out when you order them. Many times, they don’t have their own factory and instead purchase cabinets and other materials from a large manufacturer. In other words, you’ll receive cabinets that have been designed for mass appeal and quantity – rather than for your particular preferences and requirements, which also impacts quality.
Benefits of a custom-built kitchen
It’s hard to overstate the perks of having a kitchen that’s crafted for your home and family. For starters, building your own kitchen allows you to introduce custom-made cabinetry that perfectly accommodates your personal belongings (such as appliances, tableware, and cutlery) and showcases your unique style.
In addition, bespoke cabinetry is built specifically to fit the size and shape of your kitchen. In contrast, one-size-fits-all cabinetry is designed to fit stock kitchens and generic spaces.
Finally, custom cabinets are constructed with higher-quality materials than non-custom cabinets. Hand-crafted by specialty kitchen companies, these made-to-order cabinets are built with durable wood, glass, and hardware – which will last longer than cheap imitations from big-box retailers.
