You have decided that you want to remodel your kitchen but do not know when to do it. Should you wait until the winter or should you just get it done this summer? There are many factors that come into play when thinking about doing a remodel in your home. That is why we would like to make your decision a little bit easier.
Browse through the 5 reasons why we believe remodeling your kitchen in the summer is a great idea.
1. Natural Light
In the summer natural light is shining in through your windows very frequently. When the other seasons hit you may be limited on natural lighting. Why does this matter? If you are limited on natural lighting you are viewing your cabinets and countertops in unnatural lighting. This can give you the illusion that something is a different color than it really is. Besides the color illusion natural lighting lets you see the natural beauty in cabinets and countertops even more.
2. Grilling Outside
Summer is a time to be outdoors and because grilling happens very frequently in the summer your kitchen isn’t being used as often, making it the perfect time for your kitchen remodel.
During the summer you can open the windows to let the dust and smells from construction out of your home. During the winter the cold weather may not allow for this. Summer allows for warm dry air, which helps the remodeling process more than cold and wet air.
4. More Freedom
With all the graduation parties, BBQ’s, and weddings in the summer you may feel like your schedule is very full, however, most contractors are less busy. The traditional remodeling months for kitchens are in the fall and spring. You will likely have more dates to choose from if you choose to do a remodel in the summer. In addition to more flexibility in timing, materials may be more readily available also.
Choose a contractor that you trust. If you do this it will leave you with the flexibility to go ahead and take that family trip you have been planning. All the while your contractor will be remodeling your kitchen interruption free. You will come home from vacation with a brand new kitchen.
Choosing the right time to remodel your kitchen can be hard. The right materials, the right time availability, and the right season can all make a difference.
