Four Reasons to Renovate Your Kitchen
How They Influence Your Choices
As you plan your kitchen renovation, the reasons for the renovation will guide and influence your design choices. Among the main reasons people renovate the kitchen are:
- Your Dream Kitchen - You’re in your forever home and you want that dream kitchen you’ve waited for. Your budget and choices will reflect this. You’ll decide what is most important to you; whether you want the cabinets to be the focal point or if you fall in love with a countertop surface or desire the island to be the ‘wow’ factor. Planning your dream kitchen is exciting, and we’re here to help you convert that dream into a reality!
- An Update is Needed - Your kitchen is dated or just doesn’t function the way you’d like it to and now is the time to renovate. Perhaps your home is not your forever home, but the kitchen needs improvements to better serve your needs. With the real estate market the way it is, renovating the kitchen is an investment in the value and salability of your home. As you plan your new kitchen with resale in mind, consider classic looks that will appeal to buyers when the time comes to sell your home. Our kitchen designer can assist you with ideas.
- Multigenerational Living - Many households are growing, adding young children while at the same time welcoming grandparents to move in. Often a kitchen renovation is needed to ensure that everyone can safely use the space. There is a need to create a space that is child safe, but also intuitive and easy for older adults to use. Our team can help you with design considerations for a high-functioning kitchen.
- Aging in Place - Increasingly, older Americans want to age in place. They don’t want to move, they like their homes and they want to stay near their friends. This goal may require some renovations to make the home safe and comfortable. This might mean converting a first-floor half bath into a full bath and renovating the kitchen to be more user friendly. Kitchen renovations may include a pull-out pantry, moving the stove and sink closer to one another, keeping the microwave at or below counter height and choosing large drawers instead of cabinets to store plates and serving pieces. We can help you make the most out of the available space with safety and accessibility top priorities.
