Wondering how to know when to take your kitchen from drab to fab? With so much to consider, including timing and budgets, we’re reminded a kitchen renovation is no small project.
Knowing your kitchen will be unavailable for use for several weeks or even months depending on the size of your project, may help you decide on the timing of a renovation. If you host holiday parties or family gatherings during the winter season, summertime is more suitable. On the other hand, if your kitchen is the center of attention during the summer months when cookouts and sleepovers are in season, you might consider a spring or fall remodel. Regardless of timing, how do you really know it’s time for a remodel? We’ve compiled three of our top reasons to get your wheels turning.
1.) An outdated kitchen is typically the top reason homeowners decide to renovate their space.
