7 Signs You Need a New Kitchen
It’s a big and expensive renovation but there comes a time when you can’t put off installing a new kitchen. Just what are the signs that you need a new kitchen?
- You’ve run out of counter space and storage
If you’re battling to clear worktops so you can bake or cook because you are ‘storing’ things on them, then the time has come to consider both de-cluttering and designing a new kitchen that is perfect for you and how you use the kitchen.
- The layout is awkward
The way kitchens are designed today is very different to those from 20+ years ago. The technology we use is hugely different, for example, as well as how we cook and use the kitchen. In some older kitchens, the layout is no longer suitable and can, in some instances, be dangerous too. If work in the kitchen is no longer flowing, the time has come for a kitchen renovation.
- Cleaning your kitchen is a nightmare
If you are struggling to clean your kitchen because there is stuff everywhere or because it feels like it doesn’t make much of a difference, then the time really has come to invest in a brand new kitchen with hygienically clean surfaces from top to bottom!
- You have old, outdated and energy-zapping appliances
All modern appliances have an energy rating and so looking for an A, A or even an A++ rated appliances means that it will consume less energy, something that we all want. Old or outdated appliances are energy-hungry but when it comes to reducing your energy bill, updating them will certainly help. But do you want brand new appliances in an old kitchen?
- It’s no longer delivering
Do you like cooking? Is this an intricate cooking style where you fuse cuisines or do you place things in the microwave? However, you cook or bake in the kitchen, if it is no longer supporting what you do, you need to bite the bullet and make changes.
- It’s devaluing your home
Buyers will often look to the kitchen and bathroom as clues as to whether they want to buy a property or not but if the kitchen is old and outdated, then it will not only be making your home less appealing to buyers but also devalue your property. A high-quality kitchen will add £££s to your property.
- You spend as little time as possible in it!
If you hate your kitchen so much you spend as little as possible in there, then the time really has come to bid the old one goodbye and welcome a new one!
