It’s hard to believe, but we’re rounding the corner of 2020 and leaning into 2021. With the leaves turning, the temperatures dropping, and holiday music in seemingly every store, that means only one thing: Thanksgiving is coming up fast. For many of us, that means it’s time to start thinking about how many family members we’re going to host this year—and if our homes are in the best shape for hosting them. If you’ve been putting off a kitchen remodeling project in your Chicago home, now’s the time to get it going.
Because the holidays are often a strange blend of stress and joy, we know that thinking about remodeling just before the holidays get into full swing may add to those stress levels. But at Jates Construction, we have the experience and professionalism to ensure your kitchen remodeling project is wrapped up well before you begin wrapping presents for the family. Here’s how we get it done.
Your dream kitchen for a memorable holiday
No other holiday requires so much time in the kitchen as Thanksgiving. Whether you’re in charge of cooking, acting as a prepper and sous chef, or you’re just “inspecting” progress and tasing along the way, the kitchen is the epicenter for Thanksgiving.
But if your kitchen is cramped, you know how quickly a joyous occasion can turn stressful. With precious counter space, small appliances, or various elements that need repair or replacement, your kitchen may not be up for accommodating so many people—or meeting the demands of making sure all the food is cooked on time. Jates can help.
Prioritize remodeling options
Not all kitchens need a complete overhaul. Many homeowners love and want to keep various parts of their kitchens. But when it comes to prioritizing space or zeroing in on what needs attention first, it can become overwhelming unless you know exactly what needs to be done. These repairs, installations, and remodels most often include:
- New or expanded countertops
- Flooring installation and repair
- Window/blinds installation
- New appliances like ovens, refrigerators, stoves, or hoods
- Removing walls for more space
- Painting existing walls
- Installing backsplashes, tiles, or fixtures
We always recommend making all changes at once if possible; there’s rarely a need to spread your kitchen remodeling project out if you can help it—especially when Chicago winters can be brutal. Our financing options can help you out if you are concerned about the cost of a complete kitchen remodel.
More space for more people—and more memories
One of the main reasons we see customers wanting to remodel their kitchens is because they need more space. When more Chicagoans become homeowners, the home they move into may not have every aspect that they’d like, even if they love their new home.
Smaller kitchens are not uncommon in the Chicago area, and we have helped many individuals and families expand their kitchens so they can cook, move, and socialize comfortably. If you’ve felt cramped in your kitchen during previous holidays (or even just when your immediate family shares the space) 2020 may be the year you decide it’s time to give yourself and your guests some additional space while the turkey cooks and the snow falls.
