How to Get Started on your Kitchen Remodeling Project

Whether you are updating cabinets and countertops or just adding a new backsplash, Tile Center can help you with your kitchen remodel. If you are already working with a contractor, but need advice or materials, visit our store to meet with a design consultant. If you're considering us for the entire project, we will send a designer to your home to measure and discuss your remodeling plans. After an initial FREE estimate, review your plans and see the materials we recommend based on your wish list. Tile Center also offers kitchen remodeling seminars to explore the remodeling process in depth.

How much does a kitchen remodel cost?

The cost of remodeling your kitchen can depend on many different factors, including but not limited to product selection, extent of remodel, and contractor selection. The range we recommend is anywhere from: Refresh your look - $8,500+ to Direct Replacement $22,000+ to Design & Remodel $32,000+. For example: if you're only replacing your cabinets and countertop, it will be on the lower end. If you prefer a high quality floor tile over luxury vinyl tile, your remodel may be more expensive.

How long does it take to remodel a kitchen?

Although no kitchen remodeling project is the same, Tile Center has an approximate timeline for remodeling.

1. Consultation: Initial Contact, Measurements, References - Our designers will come to your home, measure the space, and discuss design trends. This meeting will only take a few hours.

2. Design: Showroom Meeting, Product Selection, Payment Options - Depending on how certain your plans are beforehand, you may be able to select all materials for your kitchen in one to three meetings over the course of a few weeks.

3. Planning: Inspections, Order Materials, Scheduling - Most kitchen cabinet manufacturers take between 4-6 weeks to make and ship your cabinets. We carry most of our floor and wall tile in stock at our local warehouses.

4. Installation: Prep & Demo, Electrical & Plumbing, Finished Materials - Installation generally takes about 4-6 weeks to complete from start to finish. We won't start the project until we have received all the materials for your remodel to ensure there will be no unnecessary delays once the project is started.

5. Completion: Touch Ups, Clean Ups, Final Walk Through - We'll ensure your new kitchen is up to standard. This time frame depends on how much of your kitchen you're remodeling and how large your space is. This may take longer if you are doing major structural changes like adding windows or moving walls.

Our installation team can serve as the general contractor on your project and pull permits if necessary. With one point of contact, any problem or warranty issue can be quickly resolved.
