So, you’ve been dreaming up a new kitchen design that will be beautiful and functional for your home. When do you start?! For many homeowners, any home remodeling project can be exciting and maybe a little bit daunting. If you are wondering how you can make the most of your kitchen remodeling project without sweating the small stuff, here are a few things about how timing can make a big difference in your stress level and the success of your project.
- Season – While it may be tempting to schedule your kitchen remodeling project as soon as possible, it may be worth considering the time of year in which you commit to making changes. For example, if you wait until the hot summer days in June, July and August, your workers can spend more time inside and you’ll have somewhere to escape when you need to be out of the way of construction.
- Lifestyle – If you are an avid cook, a busy parent, have regular cookouts, or house your family for vacations, then making sure you time your kitchen remodeling appropriately is essential. It’s important to note that a kitchen remodel means that your kitchen may be out of commission for a while, and you’ll need to find alternative means of cooking, eating, and maintaining your routine.
- Project Size – Another important timing factor includes how big your kitchen remodeling project may be. For example, if you are only having new countertops put in and adding a coat of paint to your cabinets, you might expect to be without your kitchen for a week or two. However, if you are gutting your entire kitchen area and starting from scratch, you may want to check your calendar and with your contractor before you get started.
