7 benefits of a kitchen renovation

7 benefits of a kitchen renovation

Renovating your home can not only make it more pleasant to live in, but can also help increase your home value. However, not all home projects are created equal. Certain home improvements will provide a higher ROI (return on investment) than others. For a high ROI, you can’t go wrong with a kitchen renovation. You don't have to spend more than 60 seconds on HGTV or the DIY channel to hear countless designers and re-modelers emphasize the ROI of a kitchen remodel. The following are seven benefits that you’ll get from a kitchen renovation:

  • Improve function: There are several things that you can do in your kitchen renovation to improve its overall function. For example, adding more cabinets or extending your existing cabinets to the ceiling can help provide more storage space. Or if you want to go even further, knocking down the wall between the kitchen and living space can allow you to add more counter space. Simply upgrading some of your kitchen appliances or lighting fixtures can help make the kitchen more functional as well.
  • Reduce energy costs: Upgrade your older kitchen appliances to more energy-efficient models to reduce the amount of energy your kitchen uses. Look for refrigerators and dishwashers that have the Energy Star label, which signifies that they meet or exceed the energy efficiency standards set by the EPA (environmental protection agency). Replacing traditional lighting fixtures with LED models can be a great way to reduce your long-term energy use as well.
  • Improve sustainability: Upgrading your kitchen appliances to more energy efficient models will help make your kitchen more eco-friendly, but it’s not the only thing you can do to create a more sustainable kitchen environment. Install low-flow water faucets to reduce your water use and consider materials that are sustainable – such as bamboo, salvaged wood or recycled materials – for your countertops, cabinets and flooring.
  • Modernize the look: If your kitchen’s visual design is trapped in the 1970’s or 1980’s, then it could probably use a visual update. You can change the entire appearance of your kitchen by simply re-painting the walls and cabinets, and by upgrading all of your cabinet hardware. Of course, you can go the extra mile and install new cabinets, new countertops and new floors as well.
  • Increase comfort: A kitchen remodel can improve comfort in a number of ways; for example, better ventilation can help reduce the odors and heat that cooking in the kitchen produces. Installing a kitchen island that provides seating space can be a great way to add an additional dining area to your home. The island can also add additional food prep space. Adding larger windows can help bring in more sunlight. Removing a wall can give a better sight line into the living or dining room and provide a more inclusive atmosphere.
  • Improve safety: Upgrade outdated kitchen appliances to avoid injuries caused by improper functionality. You can also implement universal design, such as by installing a wall oven to help prevent injuries caused by physical overexertion.
  • Improve home value: Depending on the extent of your kitchen remodel, you could dramatically add value to your home's bottom line. A newly renovated kitchen often attracts home buyers if you are looking to sell and is one of the most sought after features in home buying.

Renovating your kitchen doesn't have to be a huge undertaking. We work on all types of kitchen renovations from small projects to full tear down and builds. Depending on the quality of your kitchen and the budget you have to spend our team can discuss the various options available to you making sure we stretch your dollar to give you the kitchen remodel you deserve.

Sometimes it is necessary to tear out the entire kitchen and do a full rebuild. The main advantage of tearing everything out and starting over is that you essentially start with a clean slate. With a blank slate we can completely re-figure the overall design to better suit the needs of you and your family. On the other hand there are times when smaller remodeling projects are the more appropriate route based on your budget or the current condition of your kitchen.
