If you’re looking to upgrade your home, specifically your kitchen countertops, finding the perfect time can be a bit challenging. You want to make sure that your countertops are done right the first time and up to your standards. You also want to be sure you’re getting the best pricing available. Since price typically fluctuates throughout the year, it’s important to research the best time to upgrade for the highest savings. Today in our feature kitchen article of the week, we’re going over just that!
February – March
If you’re looking to upgrade your countertops after the holiday season, or are potentially treating yourself to this as a holiday gift, February and March are a great time to do so.
Usually, during this time, the busier season for both kitchen remodeling companies and yourself is over. You’ve gotten through the holidays and have settled into your new routine by now. Which means you should have a better understanding of your schedule.
With the busy holiday season over, products tend to go down in pricing and be more readily available.
Depending on when you decide to embark on your new upgrade, products and materials may either be out of stock, back-ordered or currently shipping. This tends to happen in late fall and early winter, due to many people wanting to complete remodels before the holidays. Eliminate any of these issues by getting your countertops done in the earlier months of the year.
April – May
The springtime is another great time to utilize your tax return money to upgrade your countertops.
An April upgrade will have given you enough time to get your taxes done and get your return back. Investing that money in your home can result in a great return on investment. Not only do new countertops increase your home’s value, but they also give your home a whole new look. Which many people crave with spring cleaning.
Also, upgrading your countertops in May gives you plenty of time before back to school season, which can be hectic for many families. We recommend upgrading in May because you’ll likely even finish your remodel before July, giving you ample time to enjoy your new kitchen during the summer!
June – July
Summer tends to be a very popular time where people decide to upgrade and replace their kitchen countertops. During the summer, kids are out of school, and life usually slows down just a bit. Which makes it no surprise that many families decide to upgrade during this time.
It’s a great option because you can easily grill outdoors and stay out of your kitchen for a few days! Which isn’t typically possible during the colder winter months. Here in Gainesville, the summers are gorgeous. Plus, enjoying a little bit of time outdoors is a wonderful way to spend time with your family and relax. Plus, by the time school starts your kitchen and countertop installation should be . So you can start enjoying your new space come the new season!
August – September
People may decide to replace their countertops because they want their home to look fresh for the holiday season.
Perhaps you’re going to host Thanksgiving or Christmas and you want your home to be looking its best. Since this is such a popular reason for remodeling, the earlier you get this done the better. While September may seem early, we recommend that you start this process right away. Many times, there is an increase in demand which can lead to longer lead times, so the earlier the better. No one has ever complained about their kitchen upgrade being early, but if it’s late, that’s usually a different story.
With a September remodel, you’ll have several months to complete your countertop upgrade. Plus, finish many other updates you prefer before any holiday festivities begin! Don’t worry though if you have to start later than September. With the right company, your remodel will be complete timely, and efficiently!
