1 Create A Written Plan
A very smart move is to create a schedule for yourself, including a step by step plan that will keep you on track.

It would be wise to build your Cabinet boxes weeks before you start your installation so it will be quicker when you start to dismantle your old kitchen.
2 Building Your Cabinet Boxes
It should only take about 20-30 minutes to assemble each Ikea Kitchen cabinet. Before you start, take the time to learn how to assemble them correctly by following an Ikea kitchen remodeling manual. Just multiply the amount of cabinets that you have to install by 30 minutes and this will give you a rough estimation of how long it will take to build the cabinets excluding the time added for doors and drawers that you add at a later time.
3 Cut Into Sections
Again, part of your written plan. Before you start to tear in and demolish your kitchen, plan to tackle the kitchen in sections say in to 2 sections, where you can still have one section of the kitchen available to you and your family (don’t want to be starved) and as you finish one section you can start on the other.
Cut it in to say two weekends where you may take on the fridge side of the kitchen and the following weekend the sink side taking extra time because you will have to deal with plumbing. If you need to knock out walls or change the plumbing be sure to add this as extra time to your plan .
