Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations Are the Ideal Spring Spruce-up

Kitchen and bathroom renovations are a great way to spruce up your home in spring.

Kitchen and bathroom renovations are a great way to spruce up your home in spring.

It’s been a long winter here in the Okanagan. Thankfully, spring finally appears to be on its way. That means it’s time for spring cleaning or, if you really want to chase the winter blues away, some kitchen and bathroom renovations.

When it comes to home renovations, Kelowna residents often choose the spring season to commence work. Whether you’re preparing your home to sell, or you’ve earmarked your tax return for a bathroom remodeling project, things tend to pick up around this time of year. As a result, it’s a good idea to:

  • Book your contractor in advance
  • Finalize your plans
  • Allocate a project budget


Make the Most of Your Time

While winter tends to be quite sedate (aside from the holidays, of course), spring is brimming with activity. People are eager to get outside so they can welcome the warmer weather and soak up our beautiful Okanagan surroundings. If you’re planning on going the DIY route with your bathroom renovations, you’re likely going to be missing out.

Unless you’re a somewhat proficient handyman, renovation projects rarely go according to plan. This is due to a number of reasons:

  • Lack the proper tools
  • Inexperience
  • Underestimate time commitment

By hiring general contractors Kelowna homeowners recommend, you’ll be free to spend your leisure time as you wish. Whether you’re an avid gardener or you like to get out and enjoy the local parks and hiking trails, there’s nothing to hold you back.


Best Bang for Your Renovation Buck

In terms of increasing property value, kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular areas of the home to renovate. By updating either of these spaces, you stand a good chance of increasing the potential asking price should you decide to list your home on the real estate market. Other benefits include:

  • Appeal to a broader range of buyers
  • Make your home stand out among competitors

Alternatively, if you’re doing renovations to increase the functionality and aesthetics of your home, kitchen and bathroom renovations are a good choice because we use these areas so frequently.

Spring Renovation Vacation

Home renovations can cause a fair bit of upheaval, albeit for a relatively short period of time. And, of course, the temporary construction zone will be well worth it if the results meet your remodeling expectations. 

One way to bypass the disturbance of a renovation project is to not be present when it’s happening. With a little forethought, you could arrange to whisk the family away for a spring break holiday while your general contractors get down to business.
