FAQs

If there's something you want to know which isn't here, you can see a complete list of our most commonly asked questions on our Help Center.

Does Model Living only do bathroom and kitchen renovations?

We specialize in bathroom and kitchen renovations and have developed a highly efficient end-to-end experience for our customers. By focusing on bathroom and kitchen renovations we are able to offer clients a faster, more affordable, and stress-free renovation experience.


Having said this, if there are small tasks you’d like completed in addition to your bathroom and/or kitchen project, we can likely take this on. Examples include: flooring in additional rooms, popcorn ceiling removal, and painting. Speak with a project advisor to discuss these requests.

How long does a renovation take in total?

On average, bathrooms are built within 2 to 3 weeks, compared to the industry average of 3 months. Model Living kitchens are built in 4 to 6 weeks, compared to the industry average of 5 months. Depending on the scope of work of your project, this timeline can be extended or accelerated.

Can I purchase products outside of the Model Living product catalogs?

Yes. Although most customers choose to purchase all items from our catalogs, you may choose to procure your own materials if you’d like. If you are procuring some materials yourself, your project advisor will let you know what information we need to verify the items are well suited for your particular project.


Be aware that if you are procuring materials yourself, we will schedule a start date upon receiving confirmation that all of the materials are onsite and ready for your contractor.

Do you help with building approvals?

Yes. We partner with you to prepare the documents needed for building approvals. This includes, but is not limited to design plans, insurance policies, and licenses.

Can I work with Model Living if I already have a contractor?

Yes. You can work with us to scope your project, select your materials and develop instructions for your contractor to follow during the build (aka construction drawings). By working with Model Living to plan your project, customers save hundreds of hours and drastically increase the likelihood of a smooth and stress-free build.
