Kitchen remodeling can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the extent of the renovation. The lengthy timeline makes choosing the right time for your project all the more important. Summer is one of the best times for kitchen design and remodeling projects for numerous reasons.
Why Is Summer the Best Time for Kitchen Remodeling?
1. It’s Too Hot for Outdoor Projects
Roofing, landscaping, and other outdoor projects are typically reserved for the spring and fall when temperatures are milder. Once summer hits, it’s too hot to do extensive projects outside. It’s better to focus on major indoor projects, like kitchen remodeling, where everyone can work in the AC.
2. Better Timing
Planning a major renovation is tricky because you may have to work through it and your kids will have to go to school. During the summer, school is out and people are more likely to take time off work. This makes the warm season ideal, as the renovation can be completed during a less stressful time period, while you take a vacation from work or while your kids are away at summer camp.
3. Cook Outdoors
Often, kitchen remodeling means living off microwave food and lots of takeout, which gets old quickly if the project takes longer than planned. During the summer, however, you can cook most of the food on an outdoor grill, so you can still enjoy delicious, healthy, home-cooked meals, even if the kitchen is out of order.
4. Fewer Messes & Delays
With the rainy season in the past, you don’t have to worry about kids, pets, remodeling contractors, and others tracking mud onto your new tile or wood flooring. This eliminates some of the mess and cleanup associated with renovations. Plus, with more predictable weather (and an indoor renovation), there’s no concern over weather-related delays.
Don’t let summer pass you by without taking advantage of the perfect opportunity it provides for indoor renovations. If kitchen remodeling isn’t on the list of projects for this year, summer is also an ideal time for basement and bathroom remodeling.
