Whether it’s your New Years resolution to cook more or you’re fed up of waking up every morning to your tired old kitchen, 2019 could be the year you make a change. If you’ve been umming and ahhing for months about whether renovating your kitchen is the right idea, then we’ve got five important reasons why you should remodel in the New Year:
It’s good value for money
Whether you’re planning on selling your home anytime soon or not, installing a functional and attractive kitchen will be a major draw for prospective buyers now or in the future. Of course, the market will change over the years, but with a modern kitchen you’ll increase the value of your home regardless – and you can enjoy the lovely new addition to your home in the meantime!
Modernise your home
Whatever style of property you have the kitchen is always the best room to modernise, even if you live in a period property. We’re seeing many older homes with contrasting light and bright kitchens, so why not be rid of your pokey galley kitchen of old and upgrade to a naturally-lit, contemporary kitchen that has the ‘wow factor’.
Make a lifestyle change
As families grow and change, the home must grow with them. Does your kitchen feel too small for your expanding family? Or is it simply falling apart and not keeping up with the chaos of family life? If you feel like you’re always playing kitchen bumper cars, it’s time to rearrange and remodel your kitchen so that it does exactly what you want it to. In your new kitchen, you can be whoever you want to be as it’ll be designed just for you.
Save the environment
Despite what you may think, taking on a kitchen renovation project can have a lasting effect on the energy you produce. Although initially the project will produce waste, this will be disposed of responsibly and once it’s complete you can start doing your bit for the environment in day-to-day life. For example, by installing more windows into your kitchen you’ll need to turn fewer lights on during the day. Equally, why not research energy-efficient heating solutions such as underfloor heating – you’ll protect the environment and save on your energy bills too!
Clear away clutter
If you’re tired of hanging clunky pots and pans on the wall or pained to see even more cereal boxes cluttering up your countertops, then a bespoke kitchen is the solution. Your new kitchen can include innovative storage solutions that suit you and your family. The layout may have worked for the previous owner, but it may not be quite the right fit for you – after all, you wouldn’t wear someone else’s shoes that didn’t fit, just because they were there! Contemporary kitchen designs can even inconspicuously hide away your white goods to achieve a totally streamlined look. Ahhh… tidy house, tidy mind!
