There are many reasons why homeowners would need to remodel their kitchen; it could be kitchen envy or it might just be that the kitchen as currently set up no longer fits the needs of the family and needs to be enlarged. Perhaps you are still on the fence about remodeling your kitchen, so here are some reasons why you might want to give your kitchen a brand new look.
It is not just the fact that your kitchen looks dated, it is also the fact that it is barely holding together. Peeling countertops, cracked tiles and missing or broken cabinet doors as well as outdated appliances don’t do much to inspire family gatherings or gourmet cooking. In some cases though, your kitchen might not even be falling apart but simply looks too old.
Your kitchen might have a vintage look to it yet what you are really after is a kitchen design that is a sign of the times. A kitchen with modern appliances finished with chrome or wooden accents would reflect the 21st century better.
A remodeled kitchen will give you anywhere between 80 -125% returns. According to a survey conducted by Money Magazine, kitchen and bathroom remodeling is one of the most cost effective renovations to make to your home. According to the magazine, a modern kitchen acts as both a family room and as a workplace.
Even though home appraisers recommend not spending beyond 15% of your home’s value on renovating your kitchen, Money advises a more conservative figure, that is, not more than 10% of your home value should go into remodeling your kitchen in case you plan on selling your house in future.
Of course, you should view these percentages as just guidelines that should be adjusted based on local real estate values.
Updated Kitchens Sell Houses
Many homeowners usually remodel their kitchens to increase a house’s appeal in the market or in order to increase its value. An attractively remodeled kitchen is bound to draw more potential buyers than one that is perceived as boring and outdated. This is one of the secrets that realtors leverage when pitching a home to potential buyers. In fact, if you go through real estate ads, you will find a remodeled kitchen or bath frequently mentioned as one of the home’s major features.
If you decide to remodel your kitchen in the next couple of months and then relocate after, chances of your home getting snatched off the market quickly are very high.
Not only will you be able to enjoy the updates you will have made to your kitchen but there is a high probability that you will make profit from it.
Sometimes homeowners will receive high electricity bills only to find that some of the greatest consumption is caused by kitchen appliances. While a kitchen remodel might not cut your energy consumption say by 50% it still can significantly reduce your electricity bills.
For instance, by adding skylines, you add more sunshine to your home and reduce the need for artificial light. Solar water heaters and energy efficient appliances not only reduce your bills, but they exert less stress on the environment.
Different people have different tastes and no where is this more obvious than in kitchen designs. Sometimes homeowners will buy a house for other features and not the kitchen. The previous homeowner might have had extreme tastes while the new homeowner is more laid back and minimalistic.
Perhaps the previous homeowner did not have a family, so did not see the need for a kitchen island table. The new homeowner on the other hand has a family and plans to convert the kitchen into an informal meeting room for the entire family.
If there are disabled family members living in your home, you will need to better accommodate their needs. For instance, imagine a situation where a family member is in a wheelchair and is no longer in a position where they can reach the high cupboards. In this case, a kitchen remodel can help them get about without needing assistance from anyone.
If you are still on the fence about remodeling, you will be happy to know that various government entities and vendors offer rebates for energy-saving remodeling projects. It is possible to even receive a cash rebate for trading in outdated appliances, as well as remodeling low or no interest grants and loans.
If you have been living in the same house for ages, you might feel that it is time to get a new look in your kitchen. Many homeowners whose kitchens are still attractive, functional, and updated, at some point will feel that they need a change of aesthetics.
