Think about the one room in your home where you spend a majority of your free time — the kitchen. This room has the job of bringing family and friends together, while also allowing you to cook delicious food day after day. With such a lovely room, there’s no reason why it should be outdated and inefficient.
The main reason for a kitchen is to prepare and store food for consumption. So when you’re remodeling a kitchen, focus on functionality. The refrigerator, range, dishwasher, and even the sink should each be updated and working efficiently. If your appliances are still within their average lifespan, then you can look to have each one serviced and repaired rather than replaced.
Is it Livable?
Since most people will spend their time in the kitchen (even if they’re not cooking), it should be spacious and visually appealing. Consider adding in additional seating in the form of a breakfast bar or island to make the kitchen more comfortable during social interactions. As far as the looks of the kitchen, pick a theme and color scheme you love and roll with it. Make this a room that you’ll never want to leave!
Spending the money to remodel your kitchen is not going to hurt your wallet because it will help increase the home’s resale value. Down the road when it’s time to sell the house, having an updated kitchen is one of the top things buyers look for. So not only will your home sell for more, but a remodel will increase the home’s overall attractiveness allowing the house to sell faster.
If the last time you remodeled your kitchen was in the early 90s, you’re overdue for an update. When your appliances are still young enough to use in the new remodel, have them serviced and repaired by Tri-City Appliance, Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.
