Three Considerations that May Help You Find the Answer
The kitchen is one of the most heavily trafficked rooms in your home. Day-to-day meal prep and cooking, a place for the kids to do their homework, the hub of entertaining guests – your kitchen is the busy heart of your home.
Many homeowners decide to renovate because the cabinets are worn, the countertop is dated or their appliances aren’t working as well as they used to. While these are perfectly good reasons for a kitchen renovation, there are other considerations, too.
If you’ve lived in your home for a while, you may have increasing issues with storage. As your family has grown or your entertaining skills have expanded, you may have invested in more cooking tools, small appliances or dishware. Now your tidy cabinets have gotten crowded, and your counters are cluttered just when designers are encouraging us to have little to nothing on the countertops.
Do you have adequate space in your kitchen? If you struggle to find enough workspace on the counters to accommodate all your family’s cooks or if you are tripping over one another to make your way around the kitchen, it may be time to remodel. More counter space or a stylish larger island may also be a post-pandemic requirement if your kids have gotten comfortable doing their schoolwork in the kitchen. Creating a space that works for everyone will make the kitchen a welcoming place.
3. Your Long Term Plan
If you are committed to your home and plan to stay there for several years – or even several decades – a kitchen renovation is an investment in your family and one that will deliver return on investment when it is time to sell. Investing in your kitchen and baths is known to be a key driver in your home’s value. A kitchen remodel can improve your quality of life as it gives you a more functional and beautiful space to spend time. Evaluate what you need from your kitchen and discuss possible changes with a designer or your contractor. It may only take a few smart changes to create the space you’ve always wanted.
