Which Room Should You Remodel First—Kitchen or Bathroom?

kitchenn remodeling tips

When you decide that a few rooms in your home need a remodel, you’re then left with a tough choice- should you remodel the kitchen or bathroom first?

Looking around inside your home, you’ve decided that it’s time to remodel your space. Whether your style has changed, or your home could really use an update, you know that you definitely want to make a few changes. The primary question that many people face is where to start. Two of the main spaces that homeowners often consider starting with are the kitchen and bathroom, but even between those two, which room should get priority? 

Bathroom First

Here are a few considerations that would lead you to a bathroom remodel first. As all remodeling projects do disrupt your daily routine, you may consider starting with your bathroom during a time of year when you are more reliant on your kitchen, like the school year or holiday season. 

Another reason to start with your bathroom is if the current layout and design no longer meet your needs. It’s also usually a smaller space than the kitchen, so you’ll be able to concentrate on the details, especially during busier times of the year. Although remodels are disruptive, if you live in a home with multiple bathrooms, being able to work on one project while still being able to use another bathroom in your home for your everyday needs will make this a more convenient project to tackle first.    

Kitchen First

Has your family expanded recently or does your kitchen layout just no longer suit the needs of your family? If so then you may prioritize a kitchen remodel. Since it will be out of commission for a while, be sure to prepare your family for the disruption. Also, if your remodel is to prepare your home for resale, kitchens are large selling points and will boost the value and appeal of your home. Depending on your schedule, you may find it better to do the kitchen remodel first, to get it out of the way, so that you’ll be able to have more access to your home, sooner.
