Kitchen design trends can shift over time, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you need a new kitchen. It all depends on how much you use your kitchen and how good the original design was. Typically a well-designed and built kitchen will last about 15 years and even longer with some small updates. Below we are going to look at some of the key signs that you need a kitchen renovation.
As your changes in size and your needs change, the needs for your kitchen may change as well. If you decide to have children, you may need a different layout for your kitchen with safety as the top priority. As your family grows a small pantry and dinner on the island may not suit you anymore. With changes post-pandemic, everyone wants more space at home where they can convene with family and friends. Many people enjoy cooking and with a kitchen remodel you can have a kitchen built to fit your newfound chef skills.
Your kitchen is one of the most used spaces in any home. Even if you do a great job of cleaning up after cooking spills and accidents can happen. Fading, chipping and mold can all impact the appearance of your countertops, backsplashes & more. You can replace hardware over time but eventually, as minor repairs build up it may be time for a remodel.
If your kitchen is especially high traffic and you cook a lot it can become dated looked sooner than later. If your deep cleanings aren’t quite cutting it and your kitchen still looks dull, think about giving it a makeover. Old countertop styles or cabinetry can give your kitchen a dull feel. The same goes when all of your appliances are from the 90s. Pro kitchen remodelers can help you select features for your kitchen that will be evergreen and functional for decades to come.

If you’ve been saving money and have it in your budget give your kitchen a makeover don’t hesitate because prices for materials could go up. When you’ve got the cash, consider investing it in one of the most important spaces in your home.
