Kitchen Remodel Brooklyn FAQ


How long does a kitchen remodeling project typically take?
As much as we want to give you a definite answer, the most realistic answer will always be “it depends” on the scope of the kitchen remodeling. For instance, if you are removing a wall or two to open up the kitchen which is becoming an increasing trend, the actual construction will obviously take a little bit longer. But, it is important to remember that removing or adding walls will generally require building department permits, which will also add to the project time.

Here’s a sample timeline of a typical kitchen remodeling project:

  1. Meet with a remodeling consultant for a Free Design Consultation and get a proposal – 1 week.
  2. Meet at our showroom, finalize the scope of the project and the terms of a Remodeling Agreement – 2 to 3 weeks.
  3. Select all the materials for the project – 1 to 4 weeks.
  4. Materials are ordered and delivered – 4 to 8 weeks.
  5. Demolition and removal of old materials and appliances – 1 week.
  6. Installation of new materials and appliances, flooring, plumbing and electrical work, painting – 3 to 4 weeks.
  7. Finishing touches and cleaning up – 1 to 2 weeks.
What are the most common kitchen styles?
There are five fundamental layouts for most kitchens – the G, L, U, single, and galley. While certain floor plans create a more spacious, efficient kitchen, each kitchen layout can be enhanced with the right cabinetry and decorative accents.


In an L-shaped kitchen style, it consists of a natural work triangle created from continuous counter space and workstations on two adjacent walls. This type of kitchen floor plan has the benefit of not only providing the cook with an efficient work area, but it also typically opens to a nearby room, making it easy for the cook to interact with guests.


The U-shaped kitchen style is the most versatile layout for kitchens both large and small as the layout offers continuous countertops and ample storage, which surround the cook on three sides.  


The G-shaped kitchen layout is a version of the U-shaped kitchen layout, with the same amount of counter space and storage options that surround the cook on three sides. However, the difference with the G-shaped kitchen floor plan is the peninsula or partial fourth wall of additional cabinets.


The single-wall kitchen floor plan is ideal for smaller homes. The work triangle in this kitchen layout is less like a triangle and more of a work line with all three kitchen zones along one wall.


The galley kitchen layout has a workspace large enough for one cook. In this kitchen floor plan, the workstations face each other on parallel walls, creating a small work triangle.

What should be considered as a well-designed kitchen?
One of the things that is considered as a well-designed kitchen is when it maximizes movement, minimizes the need to stoop and reach and improves your ability to use the kitchen as a multifunctional space.
