Thinking of Renovating your Kitchen? Here are 5 Reasons why you should consider it. 

Maybe you went over to your friend’s house and you were drawn by the beautiful marble countertop island or the ample pantry storage space. Maybe they had heated floors for the cold winters or a lighting fixture beneath your cabinets to ensure you never slipped on a slippery kitchen floor again.  Whatever it was that brought you to this page, we’re here to remind you of 5 major reasons to consider a kitchen renovation!

1. Increase the value of your home 

Are you thinking of selling your home and wondering why your price is not up the property next to yous? For starters, remodeling your kitchen is the easiest and most impactful way to increase the value of your home. This is absolutely essential if you plan on living in your home for some time or to make sure that it looks in top-notch shape for your next open house. Besides, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home. 

2. Clutter Drives you Crazy – Increase the functionality and comfortability of the space 

Houzz performed a Kitchen Trend study and found that 75% admit to obsessing over decluttering their kitchen surfaces and putting things away, and we can say ourselves, that we are also guilty of this.  A Fresh new kitchen not only looks good but can also make the organization a lot easier.

We can create a pullout waste bin or recycling cabinet, deep drawer organizers, spice organizers, and more! It may be time to make your kitchen space more functional by increasing storage spaces, counter spaces, or adding an innovative addition to your pantry. 

3. Make it more energy efficient 

You may think that the appliances you’ve been using for the last 3 decades are saving you money, but you may be spending more on utilities because it’s just not energy efficient. Not using LED lights in your kitchen? Why not? LED lights use less energy than your old incandescent bulbs and can last about 25,000 hours on average according to HGTV.

4. Modernize it! 

If your kitchen stuck in the 20th century? Maybe you’ve got old laminated floors that are lifting due to old. Or there’s a wall that is blocking you from watching the morning news, your kids, or your favorite show on the TV.  Maybe you want one of those islands with beautiful with modernized granite countertops. Whatever it is, we guarantee that we can help work towards the plans of your dream kitchen.

5. Encourage homemade meals 

You shouldn’t make being a gourmet chef harder than it is!  It’s no secret that homemade meals are generally healthier than ordering takeout or going to a restaurant. Consumers’ affairs did a study that concluded that 41% of those that renovated their kitchens were more encouraged to cook after their desired kitchen remodel, and a surprising 76% said they cooked more than 5 nights a week. In the long run, this could save you a lot of time, money, and not to mention, make you the most favorable member of your house.
