If you don’t love your kitchen, you deserve to make some changes.
A kitchen remodel can be a big investment, so naturally many people want to make sure their desire for a new kitchen is justified before moving forward. Ultimately, this is a very personal decision, but we’ve collected the top 4 justifications for a kitchen remodel here to get you started.
Your Kitchen Layout Doesn’t Work
If you do a lot of cooking at home, it is essential to have a kitchen layout that works for you. Otherwise you risk the irritation and frustration of continually having to deal with problems like the oven door bashing into the dishwasher door in a small galley kitchen, the refrigerator being too far from the prep area in a large open plan kitchen, or the kitchen sink being too small to fit all your dishes. A lack of counter space and storage space is also a common kitchen layout complaint. Remodeling your kitchen can provide the solution to your problems, especially if you are careful to choose high-quality custom kitchen cabinetry that will allow you to choose the placement of your sink, appliances, and storage spaces down to the exact inch.
Your Kitchen Needs Major Repairs
If your kitchen has major structural, electrical, or plumbing problems, you may be facing a big repair project. Why not take advantage of the demolition work that will be going on and tack on a few extra tasks to get your dream kitchen? For example, if you are having to open up an interior wall to deal with a mold, pest, or rot problem, you might as well consider if you might want to get rid of the wall entirely to create an open floor plan. Or, if you’re having to repair the ceiling in your kitchen due to water damage from above, you might want to consider refreshing your kitchen lighting design.
Your Home Value Needs a Boost
If your kitchen is looking dirty, damaged, or dated, a kitchen remodel is an excellent idea. Research has shown that year after year, moderate kitchen remodel projects with budgets of roughly $20,000 to $50,000 have consistently showed a strong return on investment year over year, even during the recession.
You Don’t Love Your Current Kitchen Design
Whether you flat out hate the style of your current kitchen or just don’t love it, your dissatisfaction can be a completely justifiable reason to renovate. A recent survey showed that nearly half of all remodeling projects undertaken immediately after closing on a home were kitchen remodeling projects, which just goes to show that many people agree that their kitchen has a big impact on the personality of a home, and in order to make it your own you may need to make significant changes.
