Remodeling is a big decision. It’s expensive, time-consuming, and can be a big inconvenience – especially if you’re remodeling your kitchen. Because of these reasons, many homeowners are hesitant to commit to big remodeling projects and they procrastinate getting them done. They want to know that all that effort is truly necessary and will be worth it in the end. That’s why our team at Booher Remodeling Company has put together a list of signs that indicate that remodeling your kitchen this fall is both wanted as well as needed.
1. You’re in Your Forever Home
It’s common for homeowners to move several times before finding their “forever home”. Some find they need more space, while others go through job changes that force them to relocate. Whatever your reasons, if you’re planning on moving in the next year, it’s probably not a wise financial decision to complete a full kitchen remodel. However, if you plan to stay in your home for the rest of your life, it may be necessary and well worth it to remodel a dated kitchen to be better suited to your taste.
2. Your Layout Isn’t Functional
For maximum kitchen functionality, your oven/cooktop, sink, and refrigerator should form a “work triangle”. Because the primary tasks in a kitchen take place at these three points, the functionality may be compromised if there is not a clear triangle between them. Our design team can help you determine the most efficient way to rework your layout to make your kitchen function better.
3. It’s Difficult to Host
The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home. Guests naturally gather in the kitchen for food, drink, and good conversation. Many older homes have floor plans that separate the kitchen from the dining or living room, making it difficult for people to gather there. If your kitchen is holding you back from your hosting goals, consider remodeling to open it up to the rest of the house. Open concept living allows guests to mingle with you, without crowding your workspace.
