5 Signs Your Kitchen Needs a Makeover

Posted June 08, 2022

Could your kitchen benefit from a makeover? It’s usually not difficult to tell when your kitchen needs some TLC, as you’ll start to notice that things don’t work and function as they should. Maybe your drawers keep getting stuck, your cabinet doors don’t close or you’re constantly bumping into things when you’re trying to cook a meal.

When your kitchen is no longer the star room in the house, it’s time for a makeover. Fortunately, you have plenty of options based on your needs and budget! You can do a full remodel or simply update certain elements of your kitchen to make it more modern and appealing.

Below are five signs that your kitchen desperately needs some love and attention!

1. Outgrown the Space

When you first moved into your home, you may have only needed a few cabinets and limited counter space. But now that your family is growing, you need a lot more! Or maybe it’s the opposite - you’ve downsized but would like a kitchen where you can host the holidays.

Whatever the case may be, a kitchen that no longer meets your needs requires some attention. This is the most widely used room in the home, so it’s important that it meets your current expectations. You can work closely with your contractor to design a kitchen that has all the features you need!

2. Damaged, Outdated Cabinets

A lot can happen to kitchen cabinets over time. They are prone to getting dirty, sticky and faded because they are used so often. And, as the focal point of your kitchen, you can’t overlook them!

Most kitchen makeovers include new or refinished cabinets. Not only will you get brand new cabinetry, but also modern storage solutions. Today’s cabinets feature all types of storage ideas such as pull-out shelves, Lazy Susans, slide-out spice racks and more. You can also opt for soft-close hinges on your drawers and cabinets.

3. Faded, Worn Countertops

Another kitchen item that you can’t ignore is the countertops. Like cabinets, countertops take a beating through the years. They get scratched, nicked, dented and faded, which is both an eyesore and a health hazard. You don’t want germs lurking between the cracks! New countertops - granite, solid surface, marble, quartz, laminate - will be a game changer for your space.

4. Scratched Flooring

Kitchen floors get tired and worn from all the foot traffic and dropped items like pots and pans. Fortunately, there are plenty of newer flooring materials on the market that will enhance your kitchen while offering exceptional durability.

At Woodhaven, we highly recommend luxury vinyl flooring for kitchens. It comes available in planks and tiles that look like natural wood, stone and ceramic. And the best is that it’s easy to install and water resistant. Laminate and engineered hardwood are also options, though they do require more care.

5. Cramped, Impractical Layout

If you’re tearing out everything, you might as well consider some new layouts for your kitchen. Consider your lifestyle and needs when choosing a layout, as you want to be able to move around your kitchen with ease. The best layouts reduce traffic and make the distance between appliances comfortable.
