Kitchen Remodeling FAQs

If you’re like many homeowners, you may find the process of remodeling your kitchen to be confusing or overwhelming. However, it doesn’t have to be. One of the best things you can do is to learn everything you can about kitchen remodeling so you have a good idea of what to expect when you take on this type of project at your home.

Read on to explore some kitchen remodeling FAQs from VL Builders.  

What should I consider when planning a kitchen remodel?  

When planning a kitchen remodel, consider your budget, the layout of the kitchen, the style and materials you want to use, and the functionality of the space. Key factors include the workflow between the sink, stove, and refrigerator (the work triangle), adequate storage, lighting, and the inclusion of modern appliances.

What is the average cost of a kitchen remodel?

The cost of a kitchen remodel will depend on numerous factors, including the size of the room, the scope of the project, and the materials being used. As such, it’s important to consult with an experienced kitchen remodeler to obtain a quote that’s customized to your specific needs (click here to schedule an initial consultation with VL Builders).

With that said, midrange major kitchen remodels typically cost approximately $85,000 in the Denver, CO, area, while upscale major kitchen remodels often cost about $166,000. At VL Builders, we usually tell our clients to expect approximately 15% of their home’s current value.

What are the latest trends in kitchen design?  

Current trends in kitchen design include open-concept layouts, which create a seamless flow between the kitchen and adjoining living spaces. Popular features include large kitchen islands with seating, smart appliances, and sleek, minimalist cabinetry. Materials like quartz and granite for countertops, and backsplashes made of subway tiles or bold patterns, are also trending. Additionally, two-tone cabinets and mixed materials, such as combining wood with metal or glass, are gaining popularity.

How long does a kitchen remodel take?

Kitchen remodel timelines can vary from one project to another depending on the complexity of the work being performed. With that said, the planning process typically takes about six to eight weeks, while the building phase normally takes approximately eight to 12 weeks. At VL Builders, we spend the necessary time investigating hidden conditions in the planning phase to avoid unforeseen delays once the project starts. Once your construction contract is signed, all materials are ordered, delivered to our warehouse, and inspected prior to starting your project to avoid unnecessary delays once construction starts.

We can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with VL Builders! Our home is an older mountain home, built by my grandfather, and we wanted to do some big updates. We didn’t want to entrust this piece of family history to just anyone. We met with so many potential contractors, but knew from our first visit with VL Builders that they would handle our project with the care and quality that we were looking for. VL Builders delivers on what they say. From day one they communicated what their process would be and what we could expect. Throughout our project, we were kept up-to-date and included in the process. From start to finish, design to final product, we couldn’t be happier. Every individual that we worked with us along the way was fantastic. It was clear by the workmanship of everyone involved that they care about their work product and want their clients to be satisfied. It was so meaningful to see the hope for this home turn in to our reality. Our project turned out even better than we imagined. We’ve heard horror stories of friends and their renovation projects, but we couldn’t have had a better experience. VL Builders actually made our process enjoyable! We truly loved having them in our home and will absolutely, without hesitation be calling them for our next project.

We had heard all the horror stories about the remodeling experience but working with VL Builders was the exact opposite of that. We wouldn't hesitate to use VL Builders again or recommend them to others. Special thank you to Nick, Ken and Alex - Nick for amazing project management and Ken and Alex for superb craftsmanship. Everyone who works for VL was fantastic to work with. We are in love with our new kitchen and look forward to using it for a very long time.

My wife and I met with Nadia and Carole and they were absolutely outstanding to work with. They provided thoughtful and meaningful advice and recommendations, helping us make the right decisions for our family without being remotely pushy or trying to get us to do something that may not be in our best interest. They clearly know what they are doing and would recommend others to connect with them.
