3 Reasons To Consider A Kitchen Remodel

3 Reasons To Consider A Kitchen Remodel

2018-03-15

Whether it is cooking or cleaning, most people spend more time in their kitchen than they think. Keeping this in mind, you need to ensure that your kitchen is functional and beautiful. The functionality of your kitchen is essential and if it is no longer working for you might need to consider a kitchen remodel.

A kitchen remodel takes time and is a decision that should not be made quickly. But how do you know when it’s time to call in a designer and upgrade? To make your decision easier, here are three signs that you may need to consider a kitchen remodel.


1. You Don't Have Enough Space In Your Kitchen

Having a storage problem means one of two things: you have too much or your kitchen is too small.

  • You have too much stuff. Clutter can make your kitchen become impractical and nonfunctional. You’ll spend more time trying to find the right kitchen appliances and tool to use than actually cooking. Additionally, having too much stuff crammed into your kitchen can be dangerous. Due to the lack of space, you'll try to utilize every inch of space available on your cabinet shelves. This, in turn, can cause them to collapse and cause injury to yourself or a loved one.
  • Your kitchen is too small. If you find yourself constantly trying to make room for an appliance that you frequently use, then you've outgrown your kitchen. In this case, it may be time to upgrade your cabinets and remodel.

2. You Have Poor Lighting In Your Kitchen

When it comes to your kitchen visibility is key - especially when chopping vegetable and washing your knives. In a dimly lit kitchen, you can’t rely on your stove light or under cabinet lights to provide the needed lighting. Poor lighting can be caused by various things like positioning, design and electrical work. These can all be solved during the kitchen remodeling process by doing the following:

  • Installing a skylight. A skylight works well if your kitchen is positioned in a way that doesn’t allow for natural light.
  • Enlarging the kitchen windows. Another way to lighten up your kitchen is by enlarging your windows during the remodeling process.
  • Installing a new lighting system. During the remodeling process is the best time to install a new lighting system. By working with your designer and an electrician, you can design the best lighting for you.

3. You Want to Save Energy

Having an old kitchen can drain your power (and your bank balance). If you have an older kitchen, you may not have the newest energy-efficient features of a modern day kitchen. Modern appliances and features save energy and reduce your energy bills. Some of these modern energy saving hacks include the following:

  • Installing a skylight which reduces the need for using energy draining artificial lighting.
  • Using solar power instead of normal power which reduces your energy bill and is environmentally friendly.
  • Modern kitchens are equipped for modern appliances which are made to be energy efficient.

If you have any one of these problems, you may want to consider a kitchen remodel. Whether you need a complete kitchen overhaul or just new cabinets, the remodeling process is the perfect time to do so. For all your cabinetry needs, head over to CabinetNow.com.
