Four Great Reasons to Remodel Your Kitchen

Are you wondering if it’s time to remodel your kitchen? We’ve all been spending a lot more time at home lately, and that means spending more time in the kitchen. After all, the kitchen is more than just a place to cook, it’s the heartbeat of every busy home. It’s a popular place for friends and family to gather during parties, it serves as your family’s restaurant, café and study area, and it’s open for snacks 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

A renovation is a significant undertaking, especially to such a traffic-heavy area as the kitchen.  But there are many great reasons to remodel your kitchen, including the following:

  1. Modernity, Efficiency, and Functionality. The layout of your kitchen may have worked well in the past or for the previous homeowners, but have you recently found it to be cramped, outdated, or not particularly user-friendly? Perhaps it lacks counter space, has unfashionable cabinets, or is missing that breakfast nook you always wanted? Whatever the reason, remodeling your kitchen can help ensure the room best suits your current wants and needs.


  1. An Increase in Your Homes’ Market Value. Remodeling your kitchen almost always increases the value of your home. On average, certain remodeling projects and renovations, such as replacing windows, adding a wooden deck, and upgrading your kitchen provide homeowners with the greatest return on investment, regardless of their home’s location or the status of the property market.


  1. Energy-saving, Financial Incentives. Did you know that remodeling your kitchen can help you save money? For example, adding skylights can reduce the need for artificial light and help you save on your electric bill, and swapping out old appliances for new, energy-efficient ones can slash your bill even more. Federal, state ,and local governments, as well as some utility companies, also offer tax credits, rebates, and savings for homeowners who remodel their kitchen with energy-saving appliances. For a list of potential financial savings, visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency® or Federal Tax Credits and Other Incentives for Energy Efficiency.


  1. Every Chef Needs a Gourmet Kitchen. If you or a member of your family enjoys prepping, cooking, and baking delicious meals, desserts, soups, and more, remodeling your kitchen to create a more modern, chef-friendly environment is an absolute must. Gourmet kitchens often boast larger sized refrigerators and freezers, commercial-quality ovens, industrial strength ventilation systems, islands with prep sinks, wine coolers, and more. With all these useful amenities to accommodate all that creativity, you or your family member are sure to be the next Food Network reality TV star!
