Pre-planning a kitchen remodel now saves you money, time and headaches

If you’ve been thinking about a kitchen upgrade or remodel, now is the time to get a plan together and leverage savings on your time and money. You can also save yourself some “headaches” by exploring your preferences now and starting the project in two or three months.

Here are three main benefits to pre-planning your kitchen remodel during the last few months of the year.

  1. Save money on new appliances with pre-holiday sales like with Black Friday specials. Do your research and model comparisons starting in October and early November on the new features, the latest technology and general upgrades that make sense for your space and use.
  2. Take advantage of being gone during part or all of your renovation. The length of time it takes to complete your kitchen renovation depends on how many improvements you plan. If you’re planning an extended holiday vacation, a long visit with family or time enjoying a second home during December, January and February, you may be able to minimize disruption caused by a kitchen remodel by simply being somewhere else.
  3. Allow time for special orders on countertops, cabinets, hardware, flooring and other materials or finishing touches like faucets and lighting. Once your project starts, you want everything to go according to schedule and finish on time. Coordinating and completing the proper flow of work in your kitchen requires an experienced site superintendent who oversees the project logistics. One of the most important logistics involves material deliveries. By planning now, you can make pre-construction decisions that support the logistics of your project timeline.

Whether you’re doing minor updates to get your home ready to sell or major updates because you’ve decided to stay in your home, a well-executed kitchen remodel starts with pre-planning.
