Is Summer the Best Time to Remodel?

Best time for home renovation

For many homeowners, the warm weather and longer days make summer the best season for remodelling. Indeed, these are important considerations, especially when working outdoors or when you need your loved ones to be away for a while. But there are many other factors you need to consider when planning a home improvement project, and picking the right time for a specific remodelling project can save you both time and money.

Here are some things to consider when planning to remodel:

Your Schedule

During summer, when your children are out of school and free from their extra-curricular activities, you will find that your schedule is more open and flexible to meet with designers and contractors to plan your project. You can be more actively involved if you don’t have to juggle around soccer practice, teacher meetings, and the plethora of activities that your children are involved in.

Changes to Your Routine

Remodelling some areas of your home, like the bathroom or kitchen, can interfere with your family’s normal routine. Being unable to access one of your bathrooms can cause chaos, while having to eat out for a few days can hurt your budget. During summertime, you can take advantage of summer camps and family trips to get your family out of the way and give your contractors time to work. There are many other budget-friendly ways to spend time outdoors during summer, like preparing your meals in an outdoor kitchen or using an outdoor shower during renovations.

Adequate Lighting

Whatever your remodelling project is, it’s important that you’re able to see what the final result will look like in natural light. From new paintwork to fresh countertops and cabinetry, you can take advantage of the bright summer days to ensure that you make the right selections. Draw in your curtains and open the blinds to let in natural light to get the complete feel of your home improvement project. In addition, longer days in summer mean that you have more daylight to keep working and finish the project sooner.

Adequate Ventilation

During renovation work, it’s important to have proper air circulation to eliminate dust and odours. Summertime is great for opening your doors and windows fully without worrying about cold air or moisture getting inside. It’s easier for the renovation crew to work with fewer weather-related delays.

Great Timing for Winter Entertaining

Summer is a great time to upgrade your home and prepare it for entertaining your family and friends as the fall and winter holidays approach. For instance, you can upgrade your kitchen to create the perfect setting to host fall holiday parties or for watching football. Remodelling your bathroom or getting an additional room will make your guests feel more comfortable if they have to spend the night.

The warm weather, slower pace, natural energy, and fresh blooms are all great reasons to give your home a fresh look. Don’t wait to start your home renovation project and create the home you want. Choosing summer to give your home a new and updated look is a great way to prepare it for the rest of the year.
