There is always room for improvement. Which is why right now is a great time to grab your drywall tools and supplies and remodel your kitchen. But if you don’t seem too enthused about embarking on such a costly and labor-intensive project, just read about the benefits you will enjoy with a remodeled kitchen.
Increases the Value of Your Home
This isn’t an exact science, but remodeling your kitchen will increase the value of your home and you can expect to recoup up to 75 percent of the remodeling cost. This number gets better if you do all of the work and don’t hire a contractor. When compared to other improvements you can make to your home, remodeling the kitchen still ranks high in terms of added value and recuperation. In addition, real estate agents say the kitchen can make or break a potential sale. The kitchen is often the first and last room that potential home buyers look at when they visit. And a remodeled kitchen can also help mask the fact that other rooms in your home aren’t totally up to par.
New and Modern Designs
Kitchen designs change over the years, sometimes rather drastically. If you have a kitchen stuck in the 1970s, complete with gold countertops and sink, then perhaps you should seriously consider a remodel. In the past, we were quite content to have a kitchen with the refrigerator, sink and stove nearby, but now we seek a well-designed open kitchen. We want an island, better cooking stations and a countertop that doesn’t scream The Brady Bunch.
If you store pots and pans in your oven because you lack adequate storage space, you might want to have your kitchen remodeled. Just think about all of the extra space you will have to store food, pots and pans and other kitchen supplies. Not only that, you don;t have to worry about checking your oven before turning it on.
As you can see, there are plenty of benefits that come with a kitchen remodel.
