The kitchen is the center of a home, so it makes sense that you could enhance your home by remodeling it. Unless meticulously maintained, older kitchens start to become timeworn. Kitchen styles that were popular in the 60s and 70s affect your home’s aesthetic appeal directly and the resale value indirectly.
If your kitchen looks like it was the set for the Golden Girls, or if it is starting to exhibit problems with function or appeal, now is the time to do more than think about remodeling it.
Kitchen remodeling has quite a few benefits, and it is simpler than you might think to do it. Here are a few benefits of a kitchen remodel:
- Improved Functionality
- Lower Energy Costs
- Improved Aesthetics
- Protective Safeguards
- Increase In Home Value
You should find a kitchen design that you like and then find a home improvement contractor that specializes in kitchen remodeling.
The Kitchen is Where We Live
Most people consider the kitchen as the heart of their home and spend a substantial amount of time there. If that describes your family, you will want to make your kitchen into a haven, an inviting place where you can escape the stresses of the day.
Designing your kitchen that you have dreamed about can make your entire home feel like more of a sanctuary, a safe space, from the outside world. The National Association of Realtors’ 2019 Remodeling Impact Report stated that 95% of those polled have an increased sense of enjoyment from a remodeled kitchen.
Kitchen remodels do require capital, but they can be done for a variety of budgets. Your new kitchen doesn’t have to be gold plated to be perfect; it just needs to reflect your desires using the right materials for your budget – almost anything is possible with the right plan in place.
That’s why it is so important to find the right home improvement contractor. Using Coast Kitchen & Bath, you can transform your old kitchen into a new, contemporary design that will fit all of your needs without breaking the budget.
Modern Appliances and Amenities
Kitchen remodeling is the perfect opportunity to change how you use your kitchen and include new appliances that would make your life less hectic. Newer appliances now incorporate smart-home features such as Alexa integration, scheduling of tasks, and even keeping track of what’s in the refrigerator at any time. Here are a few more reasons why you should remodel your kitchen:
- You can create additional storage space.
- You can upgrade to the latest in smart appliances.
- You change the floorplan of your kitchen to make it more practical.
Design planning is the most critical part of a kitchen remodel. It should focus on how you use the kitchen now, how you plan to use it moving forward, and what is needed to make your dream kitchen possible.
- Do you need a bigger stove?
- What about adding a desk in the corner for homework?
- Do you have enough storage for your dishes?
- Do you have enough seating space for hosting guests?
This is probably the hardest part of a kitchen remodel, and decidedly so. However, it’s best to leave the remodel to the professional, because while you could do it yourself (DIY), it’s not recommended. While there are plenty of success stories to be found on TV and the Internet, it’s important to note that there are many more horror stories that no one wants to admit to.
Kitchen Remodeling Enhances Your Home’s Resale Value
Remodeling your kitchen has been shown to improve the value of your home. According to numerous studies, remodeling your kitchen can dramatically boost your home’s value. And while you might not be planning to sell your home, the increase in value could help motivate you in the future with all of the added value from your kitchen renovation.
