4 Reasons Why Summer Is the Best Time to Remodel Your Kitchen

Posted on: May 21, 2018

If you’re in the mindset for a kitchen remodel, you’ve probably been thinking about it for a while. Costs, materials, labor, time-there’s a lot to consider. One detail that might slip your mind, however, is the when. And whether you’ve been planning on remodeling for a year or a week, it’s important to know the best time to get your new project underway.

Good news! Summer can be the best time for a kitchen remodel. It’s not just the kitchen that’s great to start remodeling in summer. Summer’s a time to be outdoors and so outdoor renovations are also useful in summer. If you’re planning a few parties over summer, installing decking boards from may be a good idea to improve your living space…and what better time to get investing than summer! If you’re not sure why summer is the season for the kitchen renovations, don’t worry! Our team at Jack Rosen is here to walk you through it.

Contractor Availability

Most of us don’t think of summer as a particularly lazy season-and why would we? There’s plenty to do over the summer! Between vacations you’ve been planning for the last year, family camping trips, neighborhood BBQs, garage sales, and pool parties, you might find your summer schedule pretty full.

That’s not quite the case with contractors! With spring and fall being the most popular months for people to request home renovations and remodels, many contractors find their schedules full in the days before the holidays seasons. A summer renovation means catching your contractor on their off-season. That means more availability and better odds that your remodel is completed faster. That is great news for people looking for quick results after they have invested.

Summer Vacations

It sounds strange to wait to remodel your home until you’re not there, but planning your remodeling to take place while you and the family are out of the house can solve a lot of problems.

Going on vacation during the remodel means there’s no need to worry about where you’re going to put your groceries, or where you’ll cook, or if your contractors are going to interrupt the flow of your life. Giving your kitchen remodeling contractors room to work without distractions or interruptions will also help them get their work done as efficiently as possible. It’s a real win-win!

Natural Lighting & Ventilation

If you happen to be the type that wants to be there to oversee your kitchen remodeling as it progresses, then summer has another benefit for you. As the season with the most daylight, least rain, and warmest days, it’s easy to keep your home well-ventilated and well-lit throughout the remodeling process.

No needing to stop early in the day because your kitchen’s wiring is currently all over the floor and your contractors can’t see what their doing, and no need to worry about the air becoming choked with dust and debris during construction. Again, more time to work freely means that you’ll see your project done faster than if you’d gotten it done in the fall or winter. Don’t be put off by the heat either.

Minimal Holidays

If trying to get your kitchen remodeling done during the hustle and bustle of the holidays sounds like a nightmare for you, there’s one more benefit to a summer remodel! Kitchen remodeling can be extensive and time-consuming. Remodeling your kitchen in the summer gives you a chance to see the project through and get used to the new space before the busy holiday seasons.
