Is Your Kitchen Ready for a Makeover?

If you gravitate towards beautiful kitchens when looking through home magazines and  photos on Pinterest or Houzz and daydream about creating your own perfect gathering space, it might be time for a kitchen makeover!

Here are five signs that indicate it’s time to give your kitchen a fresh, new look:

Your kitchen is isolated

Older kitchens were designed for solo cooks in enclosed spaces. The formal dining room was positioned in a separate area. Now, cooking is much more social, and many couples and families like to prepare food together. Open layouts allow the kitchen to be a common gathering spot when hosting guests. If your kitchen doesn’t have enough room for multiple people, or you feel isolated while cooking in it, it may be time to rethink the layout and how best to connect with the rest of your home.

Your kitchen isn’t functional

Today’s kitchens offer more ease than the kitchens of the past. From blind-corner cabinet solutions like the Super Susan, to drawer inserts and pull-out trash bins, Denver custom cabinets offer innovative solutions that provide easier access to cooking essentials. For countertops, granite and engineered quartz surfaces are great choices. Not only are they durable, they are also easy to maintain and offer timeless appeal.

You hide your kitchen from guests

When it comes to entertaining guests, kitchens tend to be the main gathering space. However, if you don’t like the way your kitchen looks, or if the space feels too cramped, you probably aren’t hosting many events. Whether you dislike the color scheme or the dated flooring, or if your cabinets seem to have lost their luster and don’t offer enough storage, it’s time to realize the full potential of your space with a fresh design.

Your appliances are out of date

Newer appliances have more to offer than just cool technical features. They run more efficiently, quietly and safely. Today’s kitchen appliances offer a diverse range of sizes and functions that can be suited to your needs. However, if your home is over 30 years old, simply replacing the appliances might not be a viable option. Electrical wiring and plumbing will likely also need to be reconfigured to accommodate newer models and ensure safety. New appliances will not only freshen up the look of your kitchen but will also make cooking and storing food easier and more energy efficient.

You’re planning on selling your house soon

When house-hunting,  homebuyers care about bathrooms and kitchens the most. If your kitchen is outdated, it could easily move your home from first to last place. You may not get the offer you’d like to receive. Whatever reasons you may have for wanting a kitchen makeover, choosing to renovate your space will increase not only the value of your home but your personal quality of life within it.
