When Is the Best Time to Remodel My Kitchen?

While remodeling your kitchen is a pretty massive project itself, deciding when to do the remodel is one of the most significant parts of planning a kitchen remodel. While it is essential to consider the weather and season when you are remodeling, there are other factors to consider when planning when to remodel your kitchen.

Things to Consider Before Remodeling Your Kitchen

1. Your Family’s Schedule

If your family has a busy schedule, you may want to plan your remodel for a time when your family is not quite so busy. Remodels can be stressful, and if you are busy already, you won’t need the added stress.

2. Eating plans

A kitchen remodel might pose an inconvenience to your family, as far as eating is concerned. Eating out regularly can get expensive and old. You will need to plan for an alternate eating area while your kitchen is under construction. If you remodel during the summer, you can grill and eat outside when the weather is nice.

3. Weather and climate where you live

If you live in a colder climate, you want to plan to remodel during warmer weather. If most or all of your remodel can be done indoors, this isn’t much of a problem. However, it can be harder to replace doors or windows during colder weather.

4. Deal and discount season

Kitchen remodels can get very expensive, so you may want to wait to remodel at a time when you can find deals and discounts. Or, at the very least, purchase certain items when they are discounted. Black Friday and the springtime are ideal times to find good deals on home products.

5. Holidays and other special events

If you have company during the holidays or have a special event coming up, and want your kitchen remodeled before these events, then you want to start planning the remodel at least six months in advance. The project likely won’t take that long, but this leaves room for unexpected delays. And if you finish the remodel early, you will have extra time to enjoy your new kitchen before you have to share it with others!

The Best Time of Year to Remodel Your Kitchen

There are pros and cons to remodeling your kitchen in any season. Also, it’s important to consider where you live in addition to what season it is. Summer may be a great time to remodel in some areas, but in the south, it can get very hot and humid. Some areas are more prone to cold, rainy winters. All of these things can impact the timeline of your project. Spring is an excellent time for a remodel weather-wise, but a lot of contractors may be busier during the spring. Because of the weather, summer is also an ideal time for a kitchen remodel.

Furthermore, many people vacation during the summer, and you can plan the remodel during a time you will be gone so that it won’t be inconvenient. Fall can be a good time for a remodel because contractors are less busy, and you may be able to get a lot of your materials and supplies at a discount. Finally, if you don’t have big holiday plans, or don’t need your remodel done before the holidays, then winter would be an excellent time to remodel. Contractors aren’t as busy during the winter either, and the weather is cooler.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to consider when planning the right time to remodel your kitchen. Ultimately it will come down to when it is the best time for you and your family. Contact Tru Builders if you plan to remodel your kitchen.
