How to Know It’s Time to Renovate Your Kitchen?

March 26, 2021 Kitchen Renovations

Most people never consider home renovation or remodel because it can be a time-consuming and expensive project. Home improvement projects enhance the comfort and looks of your house but it also causes inconvenience. So, instead of revamping the entire house, most homeowners undertake one project at a time. And this mostly involves renovating the kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen renovation is the first choice of most homeowners because the kitchen is the heart and soul of every house. Families spend a lot of time cooking, dining, or simply having a conversation over a cup of tea in this area. So, considering the amount of time we spend in the kitchen, it is important to create a functional and enjoyable space.

The house you built years ago needs some improvement from time to time. Some renovation jobs are pretty obvious and unavoidable but most people can’t figure out whether their kitchen needs a facelift too. From making your first meal of the day- breakfast to cooking romantic dinner or satiating midnight hunger, you spend several hours in the kitchen. Despite working in the kitchen for a major part of the day, we often fail to notice the signs that indicate this space is in serious need of renovation. So, if you haven’t renovated your kitchen in years, here are some signs that indicate you require a renovation.

Insufficient Storage Space

Keeping your kitchen organized entirely depends on the storage space you have. If you don’t have sufficient cabinets for storing cookware, spices, and other cooking essentials, then your countertop will become crowded. So, if you constantly need to de-clutter your kitchen, it means you’re in serious need of more storage space. Installing custom kitchen cabinets can help you get more space to ensure that you get more counter space for preparing meals.

Leaks and Signs of Mold

Kitchen renovation is not simply about redesigning your space to make it look more attractive. Sometimes, renovating becomes a necessity to avoid expensive repairs in the future. It can be annoying to deal with constant plumbing issues. If you have to keep hiring a plumber or appliance repair service to get things fixed, then it’s better to invest in renovation which is a one-time expense. Ignoring plumbing issues for too long could also lead to other problems like mold growth that can damage your cabinetry, as well as cause allergies.

Poor or Unpractical Layout

Do you feel cramped in the kitchen? Older homes usually have a smaller or odd-shaped kitchen that makes the space look cramped. So, if you find it difficult to work in the kitchen, especially when kids or guests are around, it is because you have a poor kitchen layout. A qualified kitchen renovation contractor can fix this issue by redesigning your floor plan to optimize your space. Whether the sink is too far from the stove or cabinet door blocks your entry door, there’s a solution to solve almost every problem. Renovation can help you to create a layout that allows you to move freely and make everything easily accessible.
