If you’re in the process of planning a total kitchen overhaul or a minor bath remodel, this summer may actually be the perfect time to turn those renovation plans into a reality.
Everyone looks forward to the summer months for vacations and sun, but it’s also a good time for kitchen and bath remodeling. The last thing you want to do in the sweltering heat is an attic bedroom, so turn your thoughts to a kitchen or bath remodel instead and find an experienced remodeling and home maintenance service provider who will help you achieve your dream.
Preparing dinners during a kitchen remodel is more convenient during the summer months when you can use the outdoor grill. Summer will also most likely give you more dates and times for your projects. Families spend more time outdoors during the summer months, making it a perfect time for a remodel.
Ventilation also is better in summer when you can simply open your windows.
Summertime light allows for the brightest conditions to clearly view countertops, cabinetry and paint in natural light. Longer days in the summer allow for more daylight for more working hours.
Using summer for a remodel keeps you and your family out of the house or by a pool with friends during construction. This allows a skilled remodeling professional to give you the bathroom you’ve always wanted, like having increased storage and improved lighting. Being able to open your windows to the summer air allows for chemical smells to dissipate more quickly and allows sealants to cure faster. It’s also an easier time for plumbers, when they are not busy with cold-weather issues like frozen and burst pipes.
Both kitchen and bathroom remodels add the most value to your home, so take advantage of summer and start now. Go away on vacation or visit your summer home and come back with a new kitchen or bath. It’s a great time to revamp your home – whether you need repairs, extra cabinets, or new appliances.
