Is there ever a “right” time for anything in life should be the question, but I think any adult will confess that there is always a “convenient time” to do things, especially a remodel.
So many factors come into play for a kitchen remodel. The scope of the project is probably the most important. Are you replacing countertops or kitchen cabinetry as well? Would you like quartz or granite? Are you planning to redo the floors? Of course, the more you add, the more time and budget you have to allocate, the more planning that is required, the more bids you need to get, which means more meetings with kitchen product providers and contractors, etc. The list goes on and grows with every addition.
So a good question to ask yourself is, perhaps, how busy are you at the moment? And, what is coming up in the future? Doing a kitchen remodel is not ideal to do at the same time your planning, let’s say, a wedding. Of course, working with professional and reliable providers will significantly reduce stress, but it will require a good portion of your time, though, and energy. This is especially significant to ensure the outcome of your kitchen matches exactly how you envisioned, checking the progress every step of the way. Some changes are easy to adjust during the installation. Other changes are impossible to do once it’s finished.
