There are a lot of factors to consider while planning any remodel. From layout to finishes, remodeling your kitchen is an exciting but busy experience! One element you may not have given much thought is the time of year when your kitchen remodel will take place. If you live in the Midwest, the ideal time for home projects is the summer! Below are four great reasons to tackle your kitchen remodel during the summer.

1. Summer Grilling Season

Timelines can vary when it comes to kitchen projects. Even during the speediest of remodels, there may be a time when you’ll need to find an alternative to cooking and eating inside. Eating out can be costly, but remodeling your kitchen in the summer provides the opportunity to move dinner outside with grilling and patio season!

2. Fresh Air & Open Windows

Kitchen updates can be a dusty business, so airing out your home with a warm breeze is an ideal way to keep things clean. The ability to leave doors open also makes it easier to move items in and out of your home without worrying about a spike in your utility bill.

3. Flexible Schedules

Generally, most people have more work flexibility during the summer months. Summertime often means fewer constraints from school schedules and activities. It’s also the ideal time to use up those vacation days you’ve been saving! The relaxed pace of summer also offers more time to make selections for cabinets, countertops, appliances, tile, and more.

4. No Holiday Deadlines

If you’re hoping to have a new kitchen for hosting the winter holidays, then summer is a great time to get a jump on it with no deadline anxiety! Waiting until the fall and racing to finish in time may end in disappointment, and will probably add unnecessary stress to the holiday season.
