Five Signs It’s Time For A Kitchen Remodel

Many homeowners decide to remodel their kitchen when the style is dated. However, beyond the cosmetic appearance, there are other reasons it may be time for a kitchen remodel. The kitchen is the heart of your home. Having a kitchen that doesn’t work for you and your family, can really get in the way of enjoying your time at home together. Here are five telltale signs it’s time to make an upgrade to your kitchen:


1. You Don’t Have Enough Storage Space:

Between food, cooking tools, and small appliances, your kitchen needs a lot of storage. If your storage is very limited, your kitchen can become cluttered and feel messy all of the time. Plus, without adequate storage, it’s harder to find the things you need to prepare a meal. If you are running out of space in your kitchen, it’s time to get a better layout.


2. It’s Just Not Functional:


Sometimes kitchen designs are done thoughtlessly. The sink may be on one end of the kitchen, the countertops maybe limited, or you don’t have room for the appliances you need like a dishwasher. If your kitchen isn’t working for your needs, it’s time to get one that will.


3. You Can’t Seem To Keep It Clean:


Cooking creates quite a mess. Beyond just surface spills, grease from cooking builds up on your walls, cabinets, and floors. Plus, depending on your features such as tiled backsplashes, scratched countertops, and poorly varnished cabinetry, it may actually require a lot of extra work. If you deep clean your kitchen and it still feels dirty, it’s definitely time to consider a remodel.


4. It’s Falling Apart:


If your countertops and tile flooring is cracked, your cabinets don’t close all the way or are falling off their hinges, or the water doesn’t flow easily out of your kitchen faucet, it’s time to upgrade. Our kitchens get a lot of use, so they experience a lot of wear and tear. Rather than dealing with a broken down kitchen, upgrade with newer, more durable features.


5. You Aren’t Using The Space


If you dislike your kitchen enough that you aren’t ever using it, it’s definitely time for an upgrade.
