Should We Stay or Should We Go… during a home remodel?

RS SIGNATURE KITCHENS NEWS   •   October 13, 2019

Ever wonder if it would be less stressful to leave your home during a remodel? It’s an important question to answer when a work crew is coming to create your dream space.

One way to avoid the mess as well as toxins that may be stirred up as walls or paint come down is to move out during a renovation, but, moving out can add its own stress and add to the budget of renovating as well.  If moving out is not desired or feasible, talk to your general contractor about ways to lessen the impact of a renovation—from installing drywall that converts toxins to setting up humidifiers—if you stay for some or all of the renovation.

Houzz recently did a study to find out what homeowners opted for and here are the results.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Two in three homeowners opt to stay in their homes during a kitchen renovation (66%), while the rest make temporary arrangements to move out* either partially (26%) or completely (8%). Perhaps surprisingly, those who partially or completely move out are three times as likely to be extremely stressed during the renovation (8% and 10%, respectively) compared with those who stay (3%). Partial movers are the most likely to regret their arrangements (23%) compared with others.
