Best Time to Renovate Kitchen - Kitchen mid construction, with unfinished counters

There are a lot of decisions that go into your kitchen remodel, there are several things that you will need to take into consideration that will help make the decision of when to get your project started. A lot goes into getting started, shopping, budgeting, setting timelines, and much, much more. Most kitchen remodels take 4-6 weeks to complete, can some be done in as little as 2 weeks and some may take longer, it all depends on how big your kitchen is and what you are having done. 

One of the first things to take into consideration is your schedule and your family’s schedule. Do you have any big plans, any holidays, or special events that you need to ensure that your house is not going to be torn apart for? Sometimes if you have a vacation planned it can be a good time to plan a remodel around that.  Eating out can get costly, but if it is already planned into a vacation, it is one less additional expense to add into your remodel budget. Also, time of year can be a factor, do you plan to grill out for meals? These are all things to take into account when you are trying to find the best time to interrupt your daily routine and begin the process of remodeling the heart of your home. 

Another step in the timeline is deciding on the products you want to use in your kitchen. There are a lot of decision to make and products to order. You need to account for cabinets, flooring, countertops, backsplashes, appliances, lighting, appliances and possibly blinds and maybe a few other little things.  The big items can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks or more, especially if you are ordering custom items. Once you make your decisions on purchases and look at your calendar to see what you have going on. From there we will help you with the rest to get things scheduled and started. There’s a lot that goes into the design and planning phase and we know the whole thing can get overwhelming, we are here to help you through the whole process and make sure you have realistic expectations and what to expect.
