Summer is coming! You’re most likely planning some great family vacations, maybe some time at the beach or camping. But have you thought about planning your kitchen remodel?
Why would you be thinking about that? Everyone is away and all you can think about is outdoor projects and being outside the house.
In actuality, Summer is a Great Time to have your kitchen remodeled! Here’s the top 3 reasons why:
Reason 1: You’re Spending Your Time Outside
= Less Upheaval for your family
When you remodel anything in your home there is always construction dust, dirt, trash that somehow gets all over the house even if you do everything possible to minimize it.
I’m not talking about the cabinets… but you will still have food, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, and appliances that need a place within the home. Often your dining room table will be holding your pantry, some of your dishes and utensils will be in boxes in the garage, the things you still need to eat daily will be in a box on your office floor, and your appliances will be in the middle of your family room. Even if you are buying new appliances you generally still need a refrigerator and microwave at the very least.
In the summer, you can be outside enjoying the weather and generally not
Reason 2: You Can Cook & Eat Outside
Reason 3: You Can Go on Vacation
If you have a contractor you trust doing your remodel, you can give him or her the keys to your house, pack up the family and go away on vacation. You can travel and come home to a remodeled kitchen with no upheaval, no construction dust, no cooking in your office!
If you aren’t comfortable leaving your contractor with your keys for the week, you can still go to the park, to the pool, or hiking for the day. This will minimize the time you are trying to work around the construction and your kitchen being all over the house instead.
