The holidays are a busy season, with a lot of Americans traveling the country to visit family and friends. For those homeowners who are hosting family and friends this holiday season, the next few weeks leading up to the Christmas holiday could be a time of hasty house decorating and renovation decisions. Before you decide to knock out all of your cabinetry or break out your paint brushes, the team at Fayetteville Granite has some words of thoughtful advice for you.
Before you set foot in one home improvement store, sit down and figure out a realistic budget and plan. Do not go into any renovations quickly and without thinking them through. Know what you can afford to do that will actually achieve your vision. If you cannot remodel your kitchen the way you really want to, consider waiting until you can. You do not want any regrets about your kitchen remodeling project after the guests leave. How expansive will your kitchen remodeling project be? Change in appliances? A switch to a high quality countertop material? A new flooring option? We cannot stress enough how important it is to not go forward with any remodeling project without first planning and budgeting for it.
Consider the time that you have to complete your kitchen remodeling project. Whatever deadline you think you have, add a little bit of time to it for the sake of the unexpected. It pays to do your research. Truly, it does. With a little research, you can usually find the appliances you want on sale or at a better price than you originally thought. You will most likely discover a different option for countertops, cabinets, flooring and even paint color that you like more than the one you originally wanted.
The best advice that we can give is to not rush into any kitchen remodeling project right before your guests show up. Instead, why don’t you gift yourself this Christmas with the promise of a kitchen remodel in the new year that is done just the way you want it.
