Most people spend more time in the kitchen than in any other room in the house, outside of the bedroom. Children do their homework at the kitchen table, friends gather for a night of fun and games, and you grab food from it throughout the day; this is why the kitchen is one of the first areas of a home to be remodeled.
With that being said, let’s look at the benefits of remodeling a kitchen.
The most common reason cited for remodeling a kitchen is to gain additional space. Depending on what year your house was built, you may have a small kitchen that doesn’t have enough counter space or storage for your dishes and/or food; this was common for most houses built before the 2000s. Opening your kitchen up will not only give your family more room to move, but it will also give the house a more open and inviting feel, especially if you knock out a restrictive wall that blocks your view of the family room!
A Better-Looking Kitchen
Let’s be real, if your kitchen was built pre-1980’s, it’s probably ugly. We aren’t trying to be mean, but those dull, drab colors and gaudy wallpaper are eyesores in today’s real estate climate. Remodeling your kitchen with granite countertops, glass-front cabinets, and neutral/bright colors will make your kitchen more attractive and inviting.
With a remodeled kitchen, you don’t have to keep visiting your relatives at their home for fear that they’ll have negative things to say about your kitchen. Get rid of the wallpaper, the ugly colors, and install new cabinets and countertops, and be proud of your kitchen.
Remember, there’s a reason you are here…
A remodeled kitchen will make you feel better about your home!
Lower Power Bills
Older kitchens are generally filled with old appliances, and old appliances are not energy efficient. Today’s appliances are designed to be more energy-efficient, helping to reduce your power bill and make life more enjoyable. Plus, some of those older appliances are just noisy!
During your kitchen remodeling project, this is a great time to look into new appliances. If you haven’t had a chance to see what’s available, go to your local home improvement store and check out what’s available. You’ll be amazed at the features you’ve been missing out on.
Increase The Resale Value Of Your Home
When prospective homeowners are shopping for a house, one of the most sought-after details is a big kitchen with modern amenities. Forbes stated that “Remodeling your kitchen will give you one of the biggest returns on investment.”
If you are looking to increase your home’s resale value, redoing the kitchen is a must. Two of the areas that most home buyers look for in a kitchen are countertops that are made of granite, or quartz, and a floorplan that give the room a lot of open space; they also want new appliances.
