Early autumn is one of the best times to remodel your kitchen. The biggest benefit of remodeling in the fall is that it’s not generally a peak time for remodeling. This means that your contractor may have more time to devote to your home improvement project. No matter when you choose to schedule your home remodeling project, make sure you reserve your time in advance. Depending on the level of demand for your contractor, you may wish to reserve a time frame weeks or even months in advance.
When you’re ready to spruce up your home, here are some kitchen remodel tips to consider.
A Fun Paint Color
Autumn is the best time to paint your kitchen. The weather is perfect for opening your windows, and the changing of the seasons feels inspiring. The latest trend to try is adding a pop of color to your kitchen space. Try something bright and bold, like a flash of turquoise, or maybe a shimmer of gold.
A Prep Kitchen
A prep kitchen is an increasingly desirable feature in home kitchen remodels. This separate area for prepping food is perfect for entertaining guests during your favorite holiday seasons.
Change your lighting with under-cabinet lights or pendant lights that hang over your kitchen island. This will give you more lighting options when you’re working in the kitchen. You can mix up the lighting in the kitchen by using recessed lights on a dimmer. These energy-efficient lights never go out of style.
Is there a dishwasher or a fridge that you’ve recently been eyeing? You may want to think about swapping out your old appliances for something more modern this fall. Or, instead of swapping them out, why not double up? Many homeowners have followed the trend of doubling up on appliances. Consider this option especially if you have a large family or entertain often. Sometimes an extra refrigerator or oven is just the thing needed to transform your kitchen into a wow-worthy space.

Add a Bay Window
A bay window in the kitchen will provide you with extra space for storage or display. Installing new windows in the fall is best because it’s not too hot and not too cold. The caulk used to seal windows can be sensitive to temperatures outside of the 40-80 degree Fahrenheit range. Aside from the practical benefits of a bay window, this feature will add beauty and light to your home.
You can eliminate countertop clutter by installing extra storage areas, especially around the most often used appliances. This will give you space to store things that would otherwise be cluttering your tables and countertops.
This fall is the perfect time of year to replace old cabinet hardware. Replacing your hinges, knobs, and handles is a small touch that can go a long way. You can add some brass knobs or slow-close hinges to your cabinets for an upgraded look and feel.
These days, most new kitchens are being built as “smart” kitchens. Make a few changes around your kitchen to upgrade to a smart kitchen that can be controlled using your own personal smart device.
