Why Summer is a Good Time for a Kitchen Remodel

You have decided to remodel your kitchen, and you have picked your colors and style. So, when do you want to do this? Remodeling the kitchen is a necessity for an older home that has not had one. Even the best of cabinets wear out eventually, and the kitchen just needs some love. So while you probably don’t really want to deal with the mess and inconvenience of remodeling, you know the kitchen really needs it. Summer is a really good time to schedule this.

When you start a kitchen remodel, the first thing we do is remove the old kitchen. This leaves you without a kitchen for a while. While we really work to keep the time and the mess down to a minimum, there is a time you will live with minimal cooking facilities. This is so much easier when you take summer grilling season into account. You can keep your family eating healthy and live without a kitchen easier while you use the bar-b-que for part of your meals. Not only that, but summer evening dinners outside are a calming influence on your life for the short time you have the kitchen under construction.

Your new kitchen is worth the time and trouble it will take, and this is true no matter what time of year you plan your remodel. We will get you cooking in style in no time. Meanwhile, planning for the interim makes the process so much easier. So consider doing your kitchen remodel soon, while the weather is warm and grilling can make your life easier.

Hot Ideas for a New Kitchen

The biggest trend in kitchens today is white with white. This is often coupled with a granite countertop, or if you are really brave, marble. If you cook a lot and don’t like stains, don’t pick marble as it tends to stain easily. One of the best things about a white kitchen is that you can add splashes of color to spice things up, as seen here from HGTV. Another trend to add color to a white kitchen is an island in a different color, often bold or bright, as seen here from Better Homes & Gardens.

White is not the only color out there this year. Grays, greens, and blues in every shade imaginable are being used by today’s designers. Near whites are in style in every shade. Just barely blue, green, cream, grey, or even yellow. So if you want the brightness of white, and don’t love the starkness of it, this is the way to go.

Another trend in kitchens today is that your cabinets do not have to be all the same color. Darker cabinets on the bottom, and lighter ones on top makes a dramatic look. Or for an even more dramatic look, add a splash of color to your kitchen. Bold back-splashes are also in style, from bold prints to bright colors.

Appliances are still tending to be stainless, but other metal in the kitchen is often changed up now. Copper, brass, gold-tone, and stainless can be exhibited in the same kitchen. A copper pendant light over a sink or island, stainless appliances, gold-tone drawer pulls can all be at home in today’s kitchen. Farmhouse sinks are still an eye-catching touch to the modern kitchen, and come in so many colors and options. You can even get your new farmhouse sink in antique copper.
