Some people decide it’s time for a kitchen remodel when they haven’t changed their home design in decades. Other homeowners fall in love with a showroom design and must have it in their own homes. There is no single reason to start planning a kitchen remodel, and no wrong reason to begin one. However, the following six signs often are a good indicator that a kitchen remodel is worth investing in sooner rather than later.
Your Kitchen Has Deteriorated
You and your family inevitably spend a significant portion of your day in the kitchen. You want to enjoy being in your kitchen when it’s time to cook, eat, or socialize. A deteriorated kitchen, however, can make it difficult to be comfortable. If you find you have to jiggle cabinet handles “just so” to get them to work, you’re tripping over chipped tile, or your appliances routinely fail you, it is time for a kitchen remodel.
You Want to Sell Your Home
If you are selling your home and want to receive the best sale price, you may consider remodeling your kitchen, so it looks its best. A well-designed, updated, and beautiful kitchen will increase your home’s chances of getting sold and will likely help you receive a higher price.
Your Kitchen Design is Outdated
If you realize your kitchen wallpaper hasn’t been updated in decades, or your kitchen cabinets look like they belong in the 1980s, it may be time for a kitchen remodel. There is nothing wrong with simply wanting to update the appearance of your kitchen to match current trends. Refreshing key design features can help you feel like you have an entirely brand-new kitchen.
Your Want to Optimize Your Kitchen “Flow”
Everyone moves in their kitchen in unique ways. Perhaps you eat a quick breakfast before starting your day, in which case a nook or island may be best. Maybe you prefer to cook big meals for your family, in which case you need lots of prep space. It can be time for a kitchen remodel if you recognize how your kitchen flow can be improved.
You Love Remodeling Shows
If you are always catching home remodeling programs on television and noting down design ideas, you may be ready to start your own remodel! If you feel the design itch, you can implement a kitchen remodel to make your space your favorite place to be.
Your Family Requires Special Needs
If your family and its needs have changed, it may be time for a kitchen remodel. For instance, if you have elderly parents move in with you, you want to make sure your kitchen is accessible for them. Additionally, if anyone has a wheelchair, walker, or other accommodations, you should make sure your kitchen accommodates them. This includes lowering countertops, installing more accessible drawer pulls, and widening doorways.
No matter your reason for instigating a new kitchen remodel, you will benefit from the fresh update to your home’s most-used room.
