How Do You Know When Its Time to Remodel Your Kitchen?
You’re trying to prepare your famous spinach dip and a few other hors d’oeuvres before your guests arrive for game night…but your kitchen is working against you. Your countertops barely have enough room for your cutting board and there’s no space to lay out your appetizers once they’re finished for your guests to enjoy. Your kitchen’s layout makes it impossible not to bump into anyone else in the room and you worry about your guests tripping over those uneven floors tiles by your refrigerator. Don’t stress! You aren’t stuck with that awful layout, lack of prep space, or the previous owner’s poor design choices. With a remodel, you can solve all of these common problems:
Your Layout Makes It Hard to Entertain
You love to host parties, but your closed-off layout makes it quite difficult. It’s almost impossible to fit any guests in your kitchen to entertain during holidays and other gatherings. You can’t go even imagine having to go through another holiday season trying to make that room work. There’s simply not enough space!
Say goodbye to the days of standing shoulder to shoulder in your cramped kitchen! With a remodel, you can create a new open layout with lots of space for mingling during parties. You can also opt to add an island into the design that will provide additional seating and counter space for food and drinks. If you want to create the perfect kitchen for entertaining, it’s time to schedule a remodel!
Your Kitchen Looks Distinctly Like It’s From Another Era
You’ve always loved your kitchen. Even though it’s never been aesthetically pleasing, you have made so many wonderful memories with your friends and family in that space. While you love your kitchen for sentimental reasons, lately you’ve started to notice that it looks like it’s stuck back in the 1980’s. From your wood grain cabinets with brass hardware to your dated tan square tile backsplash, you feel like you’re stepping back in time every time you cook a meal. You just want a beautiful new space where you can prepare your meals and entertain your guests without being embarrassed by your “vintage” kitchen.
A remodel will allow you to welcome your kitchen to the 2020’s. You can swap out those ugly white appliances for a new stainless steel oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. Ditch your old wood grain cabinets for a more modern shaker style and switch out your laminate countertops for Quartz or Marble. If your kitchen feels outdated and you want a more modern look, it’s time for a remodel!
Your Appliances are Inefficient
Your utility bills are steadily increasing each month and you’re not sure why. You know your kitchen appliances are older and inefficient…could that be the cause? Yes! You rely on your appliances to cook, store your perishable foods, and clean your dishes so, with all of that use, it’s important to make sure they’re energy-efficient.
Some of the first dishwashers used about 15 gallons of water each load. Today, dishwashers use about 5.5 gallons in a single load. That’s a huge water savings over the course of one year. If your kitchen appliances are older, you can be certain that they’re using more water and energy than what is really necessary. With a remodel, you can replace all of your old appliances for new Energy-Star Certified appliances that will help you quickly address this problem.
It’s Difficult to Prepare Meals with Your Family
Your kitchen lacks the prep space that you need to prepare meals for your family and while you’ve made it work for many years, you’re totally over it! You’re frustrated with your kitchen’s layout and you and your family members frequently get in each other’s way as you try to cook meals together. Most of the time you just resort to cooking all on your own because older kitchens just weren’t designed for large families like yours. You never want to host any holiday or family gatherings at your home because you can’t even fathom having to cook a large meal in your kitchen.
You don’t have to cook dinner alone or avoid hosting any longer! A remodel will allow you to create all of the prep space that you need to comfortably cook meals together. It will also give you the chance to design a fresh, new layout that will work better for you and your family. This means no more bumping into one another, dropping food, or fighting for counter space. If you want to be able to cook meals with your family but just don’t have the space you need, it’s time to schedule your remodel!
