How to Know it’s Time to Remodel Your Kitchen

Does your kitchen still meet your needs? Or, is it terribly outdated and would make your home difficult to sell? A kitchen remodel is a big project, but there comes a time when it’s a necessity, not a luxury. Kitchen remodels add value, improve functionality and allow homeowners to appreciate their space.

Before you make the investment, it’s reassuring to know that you’re making the right decision. Below are some signs that your home is in need of a kitchen remodel.

You plan on staying in your home.

Even though home remodels increase property value, they’re only worth doing if you plan on staying in your home. After all, you want to enjoy your new layout and furnishings! If you plan on moving, small, inexpensive fixes like new paint and hardware are adequate. But a full kitchen remodel should be reserved for a home you plan to stay in.

You lack counter and cabinet space.

Most homeowners wish they had more counter and cabinet space. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it fills up quick! The good news is that you can add more space. There are plenty of options to incorporate extra counters and kitchen cabinets in NJ, such as by adding or expanding an island and installing ceiling-height or double-stacked cabinets.

The current layout isn’t functional.

Maybe your kitchen is outdated or your family has grown over the years. Either way, having a cluttered kitchen layout is frustrating and can actually deter you from using this space. The standard kitchen work triangle is most common in homes because primary tasks include the oven, sink and fridge. But, if you have a small or oddly shaped kitchen, this layout can be reconsidered.

It’s difficult to entertain guests.

If you don’t enjoy having guests over because of the cleaning, we can’t help there. But, we can help when it comes to having a space that is equipped for guests. Many older homes have kitchens that are separated from the family or living room. With an appreciation for an open concept layout, we can work with architects and designers if opening up a wall is needed.

The kitchen is outdated and dragging down your home value.

If you were to sell your home, would you have a hard time doing so? The kitchen is the most important room in the home, and buyers look at this space first. If someone else wouldn’t want your kitchen, why should you force yourself to live with it? A remodel allows you to take advantage of new flooring, cabinets, countertops and more. Be proud of your home - you deserve it!

If you’re ready to turn your kitchen into a functional, stylish space for you and your family, contact Woodhaven Lumber and Millwork to discuss your project.
