Many homeowners wonder, "When is it the right time to do a kitchen remodel?" The honest truth: that’s all up to you!
That being said, there are a few outside factors you might want to consider. When it comes to finding contracts, some months are better than others. This month-by-month guide will help you choose the perfect time to update your kitchen.
January - March
As a homeowner, you might think that January, February, and March are way too cold for remodeling. In all actuality, this is as good a time as any to give your kitchen a facelift — or to start planning it.
These months tend to be the least busy for builders, so if you absolutely need the remodel done after March, it's a good idea to contact a builder between January and March.
You could also file your taxes early and beat the rush. See below.
April - June
This is considered the busiest time of the year for builders, contractors, architects, and home decor designers. During these months, a majority of full-time employees get their tax checks and tend to have more money in their bank accounts. April, May, and June remodels are also popular because it gives homeowners a chance to finish their projects in time to enjoy them for summer.
July - October
Indoor remodels are recommended during the summer and fall months. Many people have accumulated time off and saved up extra money for the projects.
November - December
These months are typically not the ideal time to plan a major remodel as most homeowners want their kitchen finished by the holidays. No one wants to host Thanksgiving dinner in a construction zone!
However, business tends to slow down at this time, so it could be the perfect opportunity to capitalize on a contractor’s open schedule and have your kitchen ready for spring. In fact, if your cabinet contractor can get your cabinets in, many fabricators can easily get your new counters installed in plenty of time for the holidays! Many offer seasonal discounts for pre-holiday installs, so this can be a cost-effective time to complete the kitchen of your dreams.
