A Message About Appliance Backorders

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about a significant impact on the home building and design industry. More than ever before, homeowners began to look at their home designs in a critical light and embark on remodeling projects to adjust their living spaces to accommodate their new stay-at-home lifestyle. This surge in home renovation, paired with numerous supply chain disruptions, has led to shortages and delays that have forced homeowners to consider extending their timelines and look into other options.

While these delays have been impacting the industry for nearly a year, they continue to linger. With backorder times ranging from 6 weeks to 10 months or more and unavoidable delays in shipping, it’s imperative to remain flexible and patient with your kitchen design project.

3 Tips for Navigating Kitchen Renovation Delays

After a year of delays, we’ve gathered some insightful tips to help you create the kitchen you’ve been dreaming of during these uncertain times. If you’re planning a kitchen remodel or hope to upgrade your appliances soon, consider the following tips to keep your project on track.


You may have your sights set on appliances from one of the most well-known appliance brands; however, many of these more popular brands are experiencing the most significant delays. If you’re adamant about sticking to your timeline, it is worth considering some of the lesser-known brands that are more readily available. Appliances from many of these smaller brands offer the same stunning designs and innovative functionality as products from more popular brands. Many of these brands may not be household names in the United States but are popular in other countries. Give us a call or visit any of our local showrooms to learn more about the alternative brands we carry.


If you have your heart set on appliances from a well-known brand, it would be wise to begin shopping early. As delays of anywhere from 6 weeks to 10 months or more are unavoidable, ordering the appliances you desire at the beginning of your timeline can help ensure that you are getting your products as close to your deadline as possible. While backorder issues continue to affect homeowners, our team of appliance experts is ready to work with you to make sure you get the best turnaround possible.


Our knowledgeable and experienced team has been navigating pandemic-driven delays for over a year. Stop by any of our showrooms or give us a call, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about backorders and planning your new kitchen. When we have a clear understanding of your project and your objectives, we can give you an honest assessment of the current backorder situation for your desired products so you can make an informed appliance purchase decision. While this is a transitionary issue rather than a permanent one, there is no way of knowing exactly how long these shortages will last. To ensure your kitchen upgrades stay on track, we encourage you to get in touch with us over the phone or in person.
