Should you do it?

A kitchen remodel can be a great way to add value to your home or simply update your space. However, it’s important to consider if a kitchen remodel is worth it. Before you even start thinking about kitchen remodeling, ask yourself these three questions: 

 

– How do I use my kitchen?

 

– What do I want to change about my kitchen?

 

– Can I live without my kitchen for a few weeks?

 

The answers will help you to truly understand whether you need to remodel a kitchen or not. 

 

Find your why

If you’re on the fence about whether or not a kitchen remodel is worth it, here are some reasons that might help you make your decision. Remodeling a kitchen can drastically improve the look and function of your home. And not only will you benefit from new appliances, cabinets, countertops, lighting, flooring, etc., but also increase your resale value if/when necessary. A recent study by Houzz found that homeowners who remodeled their kitchens increased their home value by an average of $18,000.

 

Figuring out what you want

Next, consider your needs. It’s important to know how much work you’re willing to do. Some people are content with simply painting their kitchen cabinets, while others want to gut the entire space and start from scratch. What do you want to change about your kitchen? If you’re not happy with the layout, consider a remodel. You can change the size and shape of your kitchen, and even add an island for more counter space. 

 

Should you change your cabinets?

Kitchen cabinet remodeling should not be overlooked when considering kitchen design. Kitchens are meant to make life easier for their owners, but they do themselves no favors if the cabinets are difficult to open and close. If your cabinets are showing signs of wear or if they are outdated, or perhaps you’re just tired of your old cabinets, consider having them replaced with new ones. When replacing the cabinet doors, choose colors that will look great in your kitchen when paired with appliances, countertops, and flooring. You can update your cabinets with new hardware, new colors, or a whole new look. A cabinet remodel can make your kitchen look brand new without the cost of a full remodel.

 

What’s the next important thing I should update?

One of the most popular things to update in a kitchen is the backsplash. You may want to consider investing in a granite or tile backsplash installation to give your kitchen an expensive look and feel.
