Planning a remodel can be stressful, but it helps if you get the job done at the right time of the year. But, what is the best time of year for your kitchen remodel? Let’s take a look.
The first question to ask is…
Is there a best time for kitchen remodeling?
Does it really matter what time of year you remodel your kitchen? Some people would argue that any time of year works as long as you do the proper preparations for it beforehand. It’s not something you should dive right into, no matter what time of year it is. You’ll need time to plan what you want in your remodel, research and find the right materials, and arrange for workers to handle the actual renovation.
The cheapest time of year
The Winter months are likely to be the most cost-effective time of year to arrange a kitchen remodel, because most people are focused on the expenses that the holidays bring. This means that fewer people will be undertaking home improvement projects, saving them for the springtime, so builders’ services will be less competitive. This could equate to cost savings for you on materials and hours worked, and contractors are likely to be more responsive when their services are in lower demand.
The least disruptive time of year
If you don’t want to put up with living and cooking meals around a building site, or possibly not being able to prepare food in your kitchen at all, then it is a good idea to arrange your remodel for when you’re going to be away. Planning your kitchen remodeling over Summer vacation while you and your family are out of the house for a couple of weeks, or more, lets you avoid the hassle of the remodel itself. Plus, you get the added bonus of coming home to a brand-new kitchen.
Working around the weather
The good thing about an indoor remodel is that you don’t have to worry about battling the elements. It’s unlikely that workers will have to take days off for rain, snow, or wind if they’re not having to carry out any work outdoors. This gives you greater flexibility when choosing the time of year to go ahead with your kitchen remodel.
