For families of all kinds and sizes, the kitchen is the heart of the home. From a financial perspective, an updated kitchen adds to the property value of your home.
According to a recent survey, the #1 reason people remodel is they simply can’t stand their kitchen anymore.
When it’s time to update your kitchen, one choice is to hire a remodeling service to do the work (as opposed to doing it yourself). Here are some signs that it may be time to hire a professional.
1. Worktop Space
A cluttered workspace undermines the purpose of a kitchen. If your countertops don’t provide space to prepare a meal, you may be in need of a kitchen makeover.
Kitchens need to be functional, and that means more than just working appliances and a kitchen island.
2. It’s All About the Kitchen Sink
If washing your coffee cup in the sink is a clunky experience, the position of your kitchen sink may be an issue. Most older kitchens feature the sink in front of a window. Whenever possible, the window overlooks the property.
Where the sink should be is along a point in the work triangle. The work triangle is a clear path between your stove, refrigerator, and sink. If your work path has obstacles, or there’s too much ground to cover to get from one point to the next.
If you’re bumping into each other or having to reach into an awkward cabinet over the sink, it’s probably time to consider a new layout. Designers at a remodeling service can help you choose a solid layout.
3. Creaking Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets are for storage in terms of function. They are also the anchor of your kitchen. If your cabinets are decrepit, the look and tone turn negative. It may require more than a fresh coat of paint and new knobs. It may be time to call in a remodeling service.
4. Lackluster Storage Units
If you’ve taken time to detach your cabinets and still find your kitchen stuffed to the gills, consider renovating. Modern kitchen design is snappy with storage options. You have the option of keeping your utensils and extra gadgets all tucked away neatly.
The important things can remain on the counter without cluttering up your space, like the coffeemaker and smoothie blender.
5. Cruddy Flooring
A clean and modern looking floor is essential to any kitchen. Outdated flooring can dull the look of a kitchen. Old flooring may be uneven. It also may be so worn that it is impossible to keep clean.
Also, if you are updating your cabinets, it may be necessary to replace the floor as well to tie the whole room together.
