When is the BEST Time to Update/Remodel?

  • If your home was built earlier than the year 2000
  • If your living situation has changed and you need your space to be more functional.
  • The BEST time to update/remodel is when you decide this is the house you’ll be in for the long haul OR… if you are considering selling your home.

Things to do that will improve your home:

  • Updating floor treatments
  • Updating lighting
  • Updating your countertops
  • Improving your pantry space
  • Changing the footprint of the kitchen
  • Removing soffits to increase ceiling height
  • Removing cabinets and upgrading to new door styles and finishes.
  • Conveniences specific to your needs; roll out trays, pull out trash cans, etc.

How to pull your project together.

  • Work with a kitchen designer that will assign a project manager to your remodel
  • To make sure everyone is on the same page, have a calendar created to break down everything you need:
    • When the cabinets arrive
    • When the install will take place
    • When your new kitchen will be ready!
  • It’s pretty standard to have 6-8 week lead time on cabinets. So, this gives you time to shop for all your appliances, backsplash, pick out paint colors and other aesthetic finishing touches.
  • Think about how you can set up a “temporary kitchen” if you plan on living in the house during construction
  • Everything needs to be carefully thought out to make your remodel happen as smooth as possible
