If you’ve been thinking about updating your home, or remodeling your kitchen and bath, the time is now. In this post, you’ll learn:
Why is remodeling important?
People have many different motivations for renovating their homes.
One of the most common reasons people remodel is to suit their lifestyle. It could be you have an outdated 1980s kitchen, and you’d like to live in the present moment. Maybe the previous owners were empty nesters with no dining space.
As the current owner, you'd love to gather the kids around an island for dinner.
Another incentive for remodeling is preparing your home for the market. Today’s buyers are demanding Pinterest-worthy spaces at every price point. A home with a renovated kitchen usually sells faster and for more money than one with a dated aesthetic.
Whatever your reason, summer is the season! There’s no better time to complete your kitchen and bath renovation. Read on to find out more about the advantages of remodeling in the sunny months ahead.
#1 - Finish your project in a week (or even less)
Refacing your cabinets is another way to makeover either your kitchen or bath fast. Instead of buying brand new cabinets, you can save big money just by refacing them. Switch out the doors and paint color for an instant, budget-friendly update. Kitchen cabinet refacing keeps costs down and allows for a quicker turnaround than installing new.
If you’ve been dreaming of a luxurious, mosaic tile shower that feels like a day spa, you’ll be happy to know that too is a project that can be finished in just a few days.
#2 - A summer remodel is easy for meal planning
Let’s face it. Being without an oven, sink, or stove can be one of the most annoying parts of the renovation process.
But, if you choose to remodel during the summer months, it’s grilling season. Fire up the grill, dine on the patio, and you won’t be wasting money on dining out while your kitchen gets its makeover.
It’s one of the easiest ways to lower your stress during remodeling.
#3 - You'll be able to hire the best contractors
When you’re choosing a kitchen and bath contractor, you’ll find designers, installers, and subcontractors are booked solid on large projects in the spring and fall. Generally, contractors are less busy in the summer months.
If you choose to remodel your kitchen or bath during the summer, you’ll have your pick among the best crews without having to wait for months to get on their schedule.
#4 - The kids are out of school
#5 - Opening the windows is not an issue
For any major kitchen or bath renovation, proper ventilation is key. No one wants construction dust and odors lingering once the crew is done for the day. Since it’s warmer and dryer in the summer months, you can air out your home without letting in cold, snow, or rain.
#6 - You're prepared for hosting duties
Too embarrassed to host Thanksgiving dinner?
You’ll be completely done with your renovation well before guests arrive.
You won’t need to panic when fall sneaks up on you.
#7 - You have the benefit of natural light
During those bright and sunny summer days, you can see clearly. Clear vision is helpful when choosing paint colors, stone, and hardware.
Summer is a great time to tackle indoor home improvement projects, such as a kitchen or bath remodel.
