Taking on a project as big as a kitchen renovation is a lot tougher than trying to decide on what the dish of the day will be, and a lot more stressful, without a doubt.
The budget and planning involved alone could give you sleepless nights for as long as you toss and turn about whether you really need to remodel your kitchen, or whether you can continue to live with what you have.
If you’ve already been dreaming of the things you’d love to do, to make your kitchen a space that’s really the heart of your home, here are a few of the tell-tale signs that are whispering to you it’s time for action:
· You’d rather eat out:
If you’re avoiding cooking because the thought of going into your kitchen is a complete turn-off, it’s time! Whatever you’re spending, either on eating out or ordering in, simply to avoid your kitchen, could be well-spent on a kitchen renovation that’ll prove to be a great investment.
· Lack of counter space:
A complete lack of counter space can be a nightmare. Every time you cook, you have to move 10 things around to create enough space to work on, and then move them back, to tidy it all up after the fact.
· Lack of storage space:
Pretty much the equivalent of not having enough counter space! If your kitchen cupboards are bulging at the seams, to such an extent that you need to put kitchen gadgetry in another room, it’s definitely time to consider a remodel.
· Lack of functionality:
If your stove is on one end of the kitchen, pots on another and not-enough counter space somewhere in-between, you’re probably ready to tear your hair out in frustration. If you’ve been running from one end to the other in your kitchen for long enough, the lack of functionality is a big tell-tale sign it’s already past time!
· Outdated appliances are pushing up electricity consumption:
If an old desktop computer takes a lot more electricity than an up-to-date laptop does, imagine what an outdated stove or fridge can do to your electricity bill. An investment in up-to-date kitchen appliances isn’t only going to be great for functionality, it’ll make a kitchen renovation pay for itself sooner than you think.
· Your kitchen isolates you from family and friends:
If you love cooking and want your family to be able to hang out with you while you cook, but you’re stuck with a small kitchen isolated from the rest of your home, it’s time to break down a few walls and reconfigure the kitchen to suit your lifestyle.
This is also true if you enjoy entertaining. There’s nothing that can compare with the atmosphere created in a kitchen filled with happy people and rich aromas drifting out of pots and pans.
