Thinking about remodeling your kitchen? Why on earth do people put up with months of chaos in their home, especially in the kitchen? Here are some of the reasons!
The top reasons for tackling a kitchen re-do are to upgrade worn-out, outdated surfaces and materials, and “It’s just time for a change.” Scuffed floors, scratched counters in 1980s colors, and worn cabinets indicate that a change is needed.
The most important results are better functionality and livability. There’s pure satisfaction and joy in prepping and eating meals in a fresh, new, and functional space. The family will enjoy their time together and the refreshed area will be a place to congregate.
Everything works! New appliances function well and are quieter and more energy efficient than those manufactured even a few years ago. The newer finishes for floors, cupboards, and counters on the market now are easy care and durable.
In the planning, your designer will make sure the space fits you and your lifestyle more appropriately. Perhaps this can be accomplished by adding cupboards in unexpected places, assuring the counter height is workable for your family, and adding special features that you could use but were unaware of.
Homeowners often wonder if they will ever recover the cost of a kitchen remodel if they are looking at selling the home within a few years. In the 2019 Remodeling Impact Report produced by the National Associaton of REALTORS® Research Group and the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, complete kitchen remodels and kitchen upgrades were the top improvements for appeal to buyers and added value to the home for resale. They found that cost recovery is usually over 50% if the home is sold.
Besides, as people spend more time at home for the foreseeable future, it should be a space that gives you joy and comfort.
