This is among the most common questions household owners ask their peers, neighbors, designers and project contractors. Some of them may feel that summer or spring season would be the best time to renovate the kitchen. A few may suggest starting the project after holidays, when appliances and materials will be on sale. While others may suggest that the timing wouldn’t matter as long as you have your resources ready at your disposal.
There are no right or wrong answers. In fact, all suggestions stated above can be considered correct. Below are some factors that may affect your decision in picking the best time for a kitchen remodeling project.
Renovating your kitchen during spring or summer
Remodeling your kitchen during these seasons has a lot of advantages. First on the list is having longer day-time hours which translates to more work and output. Having extended day-time hours allows you and your contractor to finish the project ahead of the deadline assuming that there are no issues in between.
Another factor that can affect your decision in choosing summer as the time to remodel the kitchen is the warm weather. A sunny day can be beneficial for your workforce as they can utilize your backyard as an extended open workspace. In addition, if you have kids who go to school, summer may be a great time to renovate your home since the morning rush for school is over. You can consider sending your children to their grandparents’ house or to summer camp for a short vacation until the renovation is completed.
However, the heat in some parts of the country which is extreme, may force many to reconsider and not want to work under the scorching heat. If it is too hot, it can affect your workers’ health. Plus if your children are home and not in school, they could be under foot all the time and create unnecessary dangers.
Waiting for the ultimate sale for kitchen remodeling
People love sales and there are many smart shoppers who lurk around thrift shops to find valuable items that are worth every penny. If you don’t have the time to spend waiting around these thrift shops you may need to understand the principle of supply and demand. Generally items go on sale when the supply is greater than the demand. Stores lower the price to entice more shoppers.
Most sales are held after the holidays or whenever a new season begins. If your budget is constrained, you can opt to start your kitchen remodelling after you search the hardware or appliance stores and buy everything you need while products for overhauling your kitchen are discounted. A simple tip that may come in handy is that you should get your supplies whenever the demand for it is lower.
