Three Signs It's Time for a Kitchen Renovation

by Guest on Nov 5, 2014

Your kitchen is quite possibly the most important room in your entire house, and it's probably one of the busiest as well. Therefore, a lot of wear and tear can occur from daily activity, and things may begin falling apart sooner than you anticipated.

Maintaining a great kitchen is an important part of maintaining the overall value of your property. If your kitchen is in shambles, your home value will decrease. But how can you tell when it's really time for a kitchen renovation? Continue reading to learn what three of the major signs are.

Your Appliances are Ancient and Not Energy Efficient

Energy efficient appliances are the new trend in kitchen design because they not only look good, they're also better for the environment and for your wallet because they consume less energy and less water.

If you have really old appliances in your kitchen, it is time for an upgrade. Today's appliances have features that consumers and homebuyers seek that old appliances simply can't provide. These include ovens that provide both roasting features and convection baking, drawer-style dishwashers that use less water, and energy efficient refrigerators that dispense ice cubes and filtered water.

The Cabinets are Old

If you still have old-fashioned cabinets throughout your kitchen, it is time to upgrade them with a modern design in a great colour that will match the overall design scheme of the space. Today's cabinets are found in a variety of options, including eco-friendly materials, and they offer loads of drawers and added space that are highly sought-after and convenient.

So if your kitchen still looks like the kitchen you grew up in or the kitchen that was in your home when you purchased it decades ago, consider investing in either completely replacing or at least re-facing the cabinets. This is guaranteed to change the entire look of the space for the better. If you are stumped for ideas, check out interior design magazines and websites, as well as newer kitchens and showrooms, for the latest trends.

Your Kitchen is Tight and Only Accommodates One Cook

Many couples today enjoy cooking together, and many families also enjoy including the kids when it comes to preparing meals and desserts. Therefore, modern kitchens are all about having ample amounts of space to move around without bumping into each other. And open concept rooms are hugely popular in today's homes as well. 

If you're able to do so, knock down a wall to extend the space so that it opens out into your dining room or living area. You can even add an island for extra countertop space if you have the room for it. 

If you suddenly take a look around your kitchen and realise that it could look and function a lot better than it currently does, it's definitely time to invest in an upgrade. Renovating your kitchen takes time and effort, but the process should be enjoyable, especially as you work towards designing a kitchen that will work for you and add value to your home.
