We might only be in September but people are already getting into Beast Mode for Christmas! We’ve already spoken about ways you can host the big day without the stress but what about those of you who are looking at getting a new Christmas kitchen? We’ve still got spaces running up to Christmas if you’re looking to book in your dream remodel, but how can you make sure that you can achieve that ideal look in time for Santa?
All good projects at home need a plan, not just from your builders and fitters but from yourselves, the customer. This means you can cover everything from the time to pick out your preferred colours and style of kitchen, as well as adding them to a scrapbook or Pinterest board so that all your ideas are in one place. Additionally, you’ll want to ensure you have a plan to be able to cook and eat while the project is in progress. We compiled a great checklist for a kitchen project so that you don’t have to!
Get your Build Work planned
You might be looking at getting your kitchen planned and built so that you can more easily host your family and friends, if that is the case then it may require building work to take place to achieve the desired aesthetic. This can complicate projects but, if you choose your kitchen fitters wisely, you can offset this inconvenience by fully understanding the complexities and regulations that come with restructuring. If this sounds like a daunting task, check out our blog on what you need to know about knocking through walls in your home.
Some kitchen projects don’t always have to break the bank, but leading up to Christmas it’s not uncommon for finances to have to be adjusted to accommodate the extra expense of buying gifts. This doesn’t mean you have to delay your kitchen venture, companies can now offer finance to support your kitchen and add flexibility to your budget in doing so.
Ensure a tight schedule
Kitchen fitters are definitely not in short supply. This means that it is definitely a buyer’s market. The major positive here is that it gives you the power to guarantee that the company you choose to go through can not just realise the kitchen design but actually deliver on the schedule they have agreed with you. By doing this you can make sure that you’ll be enjoying your Christmas dinner as you planned and not having to make compromises with build work and fittings still to be done in the new year.
Don’t Add Extra Stress
Christmas can be a stressful time of the year as it is, home renovations aren’t always plain sailing. The best advice we can give you is to make sure you understand the full undertaking of what a new kitchen entails. We do our best to make sure our customers know when we’re coming and what will be happening on each day to make sure that they’re inconvenienced as little as possible. Additionally, we leave the lines of communication open from the site to the office so that any question, big or small, can be answered in the shortest possible time. This is especially helpful at Christmas when you’ll want to focus on your family and friends and leave your kitchen in the hands of the experts so that it is a weight off your mind.
