Is your kitchen outdated? Are you tired of the same old look? Maybe it’s time for a kitchen remodel! But when is the best time of year to have this done? Keep reading to find out!
The easy answer is, it depends, but we won’t leave you with just that! There are several factors at play when deciding when is the best time to remodel your kitchen. Potentially the largest factor is contractor availability. When is your preferred contractor available to complete your project? Here in the Midwest, or Rustbelt if you will, it is common for contractors to have a period during the winter months where their schedule is less full than the other seasons of the year. This could potentially mean that scheduling your project during this lull period could lead to a faster completion of your project, though this isn’t always the case.
Another factor you have to consider is holidays and how your life is affected by these events. Do you travel for the holidays? If so, maybe the optimal time to have your kitchen remodeled is while you are out of town so that you are not inconvenienced by the lack of a functional kitchen during construction. On the flip side of that coin, maybe you host Holiday parties at your home. In this case, having a kitchen under construction may not be great for you during this time. Maybe you would opt to schedule your kitchen remodel during the summer months so that your dream kitchen is complete before your big holiday celebrations!
Holidays, weather, product lead times, contractor availability, life events, etc. are all factors, and giving yourself adequate time to think ahead is crucial. Find a contractor that communicates well and can help you decide when the timing is right to remodel YOUR kitchen.
As you can see, there is no definitive answer to the question of when the best time to remodel your kitchen is. It depends on a variety of factors that are unique to your individual situation. By taking the time to plan ahead and consider all of these factors, you can be sure to schedule your kitchen remodel at a time that is best for YOU! So what are you waiting for?
