As one of the busiest spaces in a home, kitchens often require the most remodeling. Homeowners are then faced with the challenge of finding a contractor who can expertly work on the specific features of a kitchen, including fixtures, cabinets, and countertops, which often require great care and skill.

To guide homeowners in Tennessee seeking kitchen remodeling services, we created a list of the top 15 kitchen remodeling contractors in the state. The firms were chosen based on merit, expertise, and previous projects. All of these firms are excellent kitchen remodelers, and some of them even offer extra services, such as entire kitchen additions for clients seeking to expand their houses. 

If you are thinking about remodeling a kitchen, we recommend checking each builder’s license with the local licensing board, speaking to past clients, and using our bidding system to get competitive quotes from at least 3 contractors. Getting multiple bids is the best way to ensure you get a fair price and that bids include the complete scope of work.
