‘Tis the season for: graduation parties! June will be here before we know it. Will your home be ready to host aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends? There is plenty of time for a kitchen redesign if you start planning now.
A child’s graduation is a huge milestone in a family’s life and if you are hosting the big event this year, you may want your kitchen looking its best. Is there time to have your kitchen redesign complete? You bet. A typical kitchen redesign in the Rocky Mountain region takes six to eight weeks and Classic Cabinets & Design is here to help! If you want to start preplanning now, we borrowed some tips from Alexander Lumber to help you get ready:
PREP YOUR HOUSE
The Kitchen Takes Center Stage
One thing all graduation parties have in common is the food. You and your guests will likely spend a large portion of the day gathered in the kitchen chatting and working on the celebratory feast which means that if you have been putting off a kitchen remodel, now is the time to get it done. If you have the budget, shoot for the full remodel: cabinets, new fixtures, the works. Otherwise, you can keep costs down by doing simpler projects that freshen the space, like a new backsplash, a coat of paint on the walls or cool new light fixtures.
Get Your Bathrooms Ready
With all of the other preparation for the party, you may not want to shell out for a full bathroom remodel right now. There are, however, a few inexpensive things that you can do to update the bathroom that your guests will be using.
- If the faucet on your bathroom sink is old and worn, consider replacing it to brighten up the sink area.
- Bathroom walls are notorious for becoming dingy over the years. Fresh paint definitely can’t hurt.
- To add some personality to the room, you can replace the medicine cabinet or mirror with something new and modern.
- Last but not least, make sure your toilets are functioning well and don’t need repair or upgrade.
Finally, make sure to check all of the bathroom’s caulking — around the sink, the seams in your tub’s surround, along the base of the toilet. These are spots notorious for catching dirt and grime so by cleaning or replacing the caulking, you can make your bathroom look much fresher.
