Three Reasons Homeowners Remodel Their Kitchen

1. Improve Functionality & Eliminate Inconvenience

Update an Awkward Layout

One of the top reasons homeowners remodel their kitchens is to improve the everyday functionality of the space. Kitchens that haven’t been updated for a while tend to accumulate many idiosyncrasies. These may include awkward configurations that won’t allow you to open the refrigerator door if a certain drawer is open, or minimal countertop space for prepping dinner.

Update Deteriorating Materials

Kitchen materials deteriorate over time, regardless of how durable they were when they were first installed. For example, if the linoleum is curling away from the floorboards, the Formica countertops are scratched, and the pink cabinet from the Eisenhower era is peeling, you may want to consider a small kitchen remodel.

2. Upgrade to Meet Your Family’s Needs

Create a Space that Works for Your Family

Whether you are in need of additional storage, counter space or gourmet features, renovate your kitchen to make it a space that works for your everyday needs. 

If you’re raising a growing family, your household needs are changing. More people in the house means you need more seating space, countertop space, oven or burner options, a larger refrigerator, and even more cabinet and pantry storage.

Perhaps you want a gourmet kitchen for entertaining, complete with quartz counters, a space for hanging pots, a warming drawer, a dedicated wine refrigerator, and plenty of stools for guests to watch you slice and dice. If it doesn’t fit your lifestyle, a kitchen remodel can be a dream come true.

3. Upgrade to Fit Your Personal Style

Change the Design Style: From Dark and Dated to Light & Bright

 Do you cringe every time you enter your dark and gloomy kitchen? Maybe your style isn’t oak cabinetry, a red sink, and linoleum counters. If you prefer bright white cabinets, quartz counters, and contemporary lighting, it might be time for a kitchen remodel. Since you’ll be spending a good portion of your life in the kitchen, make sure it fits your aesthetics. 

Our designers can help you incorporate the most popular products, colors, and designs in your kitchen remodel. 

Take Advantage of Advancing Tech Features

Kitchen remodeling trends and technologies are evolving—and you want to keep up! Iconic modern and traditional kitchen design trends are giving way to contemporary, and transitional styles in 2020, according to the U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trendy Study. In fact, Houzz researchers noted that 87% of homeowners claimed they were remodeling their kitchens to “change the style” in 2020.

Meanwhile, vendors continue to roll out exciting, new materials that open up all kinds of eco-friendly functions and design possibilities in kitchens. Furthermore, technology is constantly evolving, and many homeowners are looking for ways to integrate new electronics, such as Google Home, wireless speakers, and “smart”  appliances with high-tech features.

You don’t need to buy or build a new home to enjoy all these exciting 21st-century developments. A cost-effective kitchen remodel puts style makeovers, tech updates, and material upgrades within reach.
