Color is key to any remodeling project. Whether you prefer a neutral palette or something a little louder, it’s vital to put some focussed time into choosing. While wall paint or even a backsplash can be changed without too much fuss, something like countertops is difficult and costly to change.
In a perfect world where nothing goes wrong, all the materials show up on time, and there are no delays with city permits or your condo board, a kitchen remodel can be done in about 3 weeks. But this is the real world, and the average timeline ends up being a few months. Sometimes tiles are broken in transit or your building’s elevator is reserved for people moving for the next few weeks. The granite countertop of your dreams might not be in stock for months, and the cabinet makers might be especially busy this time of year.
They say that when it comes to the triangle of price, speed, and quality, you can only choose two. At 123 Remodeling, we prioritize quality over everything else, so this week we’re having a conversation about how to manage your timeline expectations. Here are a few things you should plan to encounter that’ll slow your work down, and some suggestions to counteract them.
