We could give you many reasons to get started on your kitchen or bathroom remodel in any season, but there’s truly no time like the present summer months to begin your remodeling process. So why is summer the perfect time to get started for many people? See our list below:

Because Fall and Winter are Coming

Oh, Fall – a time for many gatherings amongst friends and family. Between, Halloween parties, Thanksgiving get-togethers and December Holidays, you might as well just give everyone their own key to your home. Wouldn’t it be nice to get started on your project as soon as possible so that it can be done and ready to show off before all of the excitement? Remodel timelines can range anywhere from a couple weeks to months (not including your behind the scenes research), so beginning in summer can give you optimal time to finish up before the turkey arrives.

Because Summer is full of inspirations

While you’re finishing up your summer traveling and fun, make sure you jot down inspirations along the way. Whether it is a floor style you saw in your hotel in Greece, the new kitchen cabinets you adored at your neighbor’s gathering, or even the backsplash displayed at one of the many open houses you walked through – these will all help your designer get a better sense of your style. You’re more apt to explore during the warm summer months, so what better time to get started gathering inspirations.

Because there’s more opportunity to see imperfections

Summer months naturally come with more daylight (and more family time) – which means you’re probably spending more time in the kitchen. As the sun shines in, get a better idea of what it is you don’t like (or you do like) around the room.

And, as your family and friends gather around, note where you may benefit from more seating, safety precautions, lighting, plugs, or even work stations.

Because it’ll be done before the snow

The best reason to get started on your remodel in the summer months (aside from it being finished in time for your family gatherings) is that your home won’t be in disarray during the snowy winter months. Having your windows and doors open for construction workers is much more pleasing in late summer and early fall than it will be in late fall and winter. And, if your kitchen becomes off limits, late summer and early Fall will be the perfect time to utilize that outdoor grill!
