Excited to make your kitchen the focal point for holiday celebrations? There’s no time like the present to get started. Unfortunately, many of our clients underestimate how long it takes to renovate a kitchen, or why we can’t rush the process. Homeowners who approach us in October or November to ask about the timeline for a kitchen tuneup are often disappointed to learn that their dream can’t come true until after the holidays.
When you start ahead of the season, you’ll enjoy the benefits of our careful design process, with enough time to celebrate in style. Here are a few reasons why you should consider planning your kitchen remodel as soon as possible if you want to finish by the holidays.
The Benefits Of Planning Your Kitchen Remodel As Early As Possible
1. Get on the Schedule Earlier
Finding a contractor who does work just the way you want is complicated enough. Trying to locate one who isn’t busy right before the holidays is ten times harder. Some people start searching for a company a year or more before the project, just so they can be sure to get on the schedule. The best businesses will be the fastest to fill up, and you definitely want one of the best. Your kitchen deserves a contractor’s careful attention, so you need to start early enough that you can be a priority.
2. No Rush Before the Holidays
The holidays have their own schedule, so the lead-up can be pretty hectic. The last thing you want is to spend the last few weeks before your big event sweating the details:
Will the specialty materials arrive on time?
What if there’s a delay?
How will I balance the renovation with all these other activities I have going on?
Start early, so you can relax with the assurance that you have plenty of time to get ready.
3. Time to Perfect the Design
Like any piece of artwork, you can expect that there will be a few changes before your contractor starts construction. You need plenty of time to contemplate the design and be absolutely sure that everything will look how you expect before signing off on it. Your designers also need time to refine. If you have ever wished you took more time to be sure about a big decision, you know that this time is crucial.
4. Celebrate the Holidays as Planned
It’s easy to imagine celebrating the holidays with friends and family, your new kitchen ready to create and host. Ultimately, you have to plan ahead to be sure that your goals can come to fruition. You shouldn’t have to choose between the kitchen you want and the events that you’ve spent months thinking about. With a little advance preparation and patience, you can have both.
Kitchen renovations are time-consuming projects, but they’re also important to the look and feel of your home. To talk more about your project, schedule a free consultation.
