TOP 8 REASONS A FULL KITCHEN REMODEL IS RIGHT FOR YOU
Tackling a full North Phoenix kitchen remodeling project can be a daunting undertaking, and many homeowners offer a plethora of reasons to forego the idea and opt for something simpler or smaller instead. Whether it is the financial burden of budgeting, planning the new layout and design, living with the inconvenience of a torn-apart kitchen – whatever the reason, each one is convincing enough in itself to avoid it altogether. However, we choose to differ! Here, we pose eight different reasons to consider for forging ahead with your full kitchen remodel.
1 – Outdated
The simplest reason is that your kitchen could be just too outdated to function properly. Perhaps you inherited Grandma’s house and while it holds all the sentimental value in the world, the functionality of the appliances or the lack of cupboard space is purely too difficult to work with day to day. Maybe the quality of the materials in the kitchen was sub-par to begin with, so the counter tiles are broken, the linoleum on the floor is cracked and peeling, and half the cabinet doors are broken or stuck. Or maybe you purchased an older house with the intent to flip it, and have already tackled the North Phoenix bathroom remodeling and North Phoenix patio remodeling projects; all that’s left is the kitchen.
Whatever your reason for having an outdated kitchen, there it is, begging to be torn apart and modernized. Not only is a deteriorating and outdated kitchen unsightly, but it promotes poor resale value and an unsafe cooking environment (especially when kids or pets are underfoot as well!).
2 – Resale Value
A newly remodeled kitchen adds huge equity to the overall value of a home. If resell is in your near future, or even a remote possibility someday, seriously consider the idea of redesigning the kitchen. It will provide a clean, sleek look to your home and create enormous visual appeal for any potential buyers. The investment you put forth into the kitchen remodel will be more than paid back upon resell of the house.
3 – Save Energy
This aspect is applicable when the kitchen is outdated or has older appliances. Installing modern, energy-efficient appliances will lower your monthly water bill and electric bill. Adding things such as a skylight or larger windows can help bring more heat and light into the kitchen, lowering your heating bills plus reducing the need for using up electricity on lighting the area.
4 – Lifestyle
Sometimes the layout of the kitchen and design of the cabinets is just not your jam. Maybe you wish there was a breakfast nook, an island, or a coffee bar area. Or perhaps one of your family members living in the home is wheelchair-bound and unable to reach very high or even have room to open the fridge. In this event, you may even need a contractor to undertake an entire North Phoenix home remodeling project for you. Whatever the reason, any of these circumstances is when a full kitchen remodel is definitely the best option for you and your family.
5 – Financial Savings
If you are fiscally savvy, sometimes a kitchen remodel will be the best choice in helping you save money. Whether it is rebates that offer cash back on appliance purchases or the boost your budget will get from lower monthly payments, long-term financial savings is always a good reason for a kitchen remodel.
6 – Switch It Up
We all know the appeal and satisfaction of a newly rearranged area, whether it is a whole room, small closet, or just a drawer. Sometimes the only reason necessary to pursue a full kitchen remodel is that the homeowner is bored with the kitchen and needs something completely different.
7 – Inspiration
Perhaps you have spent a large amount of time watching home improvement television shows. While many of the beautiful homes featured are lofty and likely something we could only dream about, many of the concepts, designs, décor, or other aspects of those homes may be appealing to you. It never hurts to think outside the box of what you thought you liked, and try something new, whether you are working on a North Phoenix commercial remodeling project or simply remodeling one area of your home. If you are feeling inspired by HGTV, maybe it is time to take a step and do a full remodel of your kitchen.
8 – Chef in the Family
Finally, maybe you and your family simply love to cook and experiment in the kitchen, host large dinner parties, or create gourmet meals, but your current setup hampers that desire. If this is your situation, consider redoing the entire layout completely, updating your appliances to larger and more modern pieces, and making your cooking experiences that much more enjoyable.
