It is one of the most common questions we get asked by homeowners every year “when is the best time to remodel my kitchen?”. So, when is it? It all depends on you. Any time is the right time, as long as you are ready to make the investment. Typically, homeowners like to start their remodeling project spring/summer time this may be because consumers find have more motivation after spending so much time hibernating through New England’s long winter!
Not sure if you’re ready? We’ve come up with a few things to consider when deciding to remodel your kitchen.
An alternate cooking space. Grilling your food would be a great option when preparing your meal during a kitchen remodel. Try and aim for a dryer period months as remodeling your kitchen can get tricky if you live in a colder area.
Minimize the costs. Buying building materials fluctuate throughout the year. If you plan your project ahead of time you could possibly grab great deals for paint, trim, sheetrock, tile, etc., when they are at their cheapest.
Be efficient. If you plan on buying your materials early, it will give you more time to schedule out with your contractor and the project itself. This will help provide your contractor all the materials that they need to dedicate to your kitchen. Also, another tip that may help get your kitchen done faster is to help clean out as much as you can before the remodeling starts and after hours when the contractors are done for the day, this will help your contractors get started first thing in the morning.
Hours in the day. You may prefer to schedule your project during the Spring/Summer as the hours in the day run the longest which will allow you to get more work done during daylight hours.
Keep with the routine. Nothing gets in the way than family gatherings and summer holidays. If you have kids, it’s ideal to think of a time where they can either stay with their friends for a while or even visit their grandparents for the week!
