5 Reasons to Remodel Your Kitchen

Our hearts, and our family’s soul are in the kitchen. It is by far the most important space in the house, and second place isn’t even close. It’s mission central where you cook, eat, gather and plan your day.

Take a look at this all-important room. Is it working well for you and your family? Is it out-dated or dysfunctional? Maybe you’ve been thinking about remodeling your kitchen for years or maybe you recently bought your home. The truth is that remodeling your kitchen has many benefits. Lets check it out…

1. Improve Functionality

One of the top reasons to remodel your kitchen is to improve everyday functionality of the space. Kitchens that haven’t been updated for a while tend to accumulate a lot of idiosyncrasies.

Do you have a difficult time opening the refrigerator door if a certain drawer is open? Are you bumping into someone else while you share the space? Are you navigating an obstacle course in order to get food to the table?

A new kitchen layout will remove bottlenecks that cause you to waste time as you work in your kitchen. A kitchen island, a second sink, a pantry, or more cabinets are some options that may make the space work better for you.

2. Meet Your Family’s Needs

Creating a space in your kitchen to meet your family’s needs should be a priority. If you’re raising a growing family, your household needs are changing. More people in the house means you need more seating space, countertop space, oven or burner options, a larger refrigerator, and even more cabinet and pantry space.

Or perhaps you want a gourmet kitchen geared toward parties, with new countertops, a rack for hanging pots, a warming drawer, a dedicated wine refrigerator, and plenty of cafe chairs for guests to watch you dice and chop.

3. Fit Your Lifestyle & Personality

You never get a second chance to make a good impression. Your family and guests tend to congregate in the kitchen more often than even in the living room.

Remodeling your kitchen is a great time to update the design and style of your home. Do you cringe every time you enter your dark and gloomy kitchen? Choose cabinets, lighting, flooring, and countertops to fit your personality. Since you’ll be spending a good portion of your life in the kitchen, make sure it fits your aesthetics. Our designers can help you incorporate the most popular products, colors and designs in your kitchen.

4. Boost Your Re-Sale Value

Nothing adds value to a home like a fully updated kitchen. Homeowners who renovate their kitchens can often see up to 90% of the cost added onto their home value when it’s done. This all depends on where you live, how much you’ve invested, the details of your renovation, and when you sell. You’ll also land a sale more quickly, as buyers are picky about kitchens and will almost always choose a home that’s remodeled over one that needs a whole lot of updating.

5. Increase Energy Savings

Take a look at how the industry is changing the way you can cook! Renovating an older kitchen offers lots of opportunity to update to energy and water savings appliances and smart materials.

Replace your bulky/awkward/energy guzzling appliances with energy-efficient appliances that cut the utility bill and place less stress on the environment.
