Whether you purchased your home or you built it from the ground up, you’re bound to consider a remodeling project or two. Families grow, and their needs change, and soon the kitchen island isn’t as functional as it was when you first moved in. But how can you tell when you’re truly ready to knock down the walls and start anew? Many experts in the field, such as Landmark association, may suggest the following considerations help indecisive homeowners decide if it’s the right time for a remodel.
Wear and Tear
One of the biggest reasons homeowners choose to remodel is due to the wear and tear of the space. One of the most charming aspects of Baltimore life is its many old row houses, but residents commonly remark on outdated fixtures and appliances. Whether the countertops are starting to fade or the cabinet doors are starting to stick, the best solution is to remodel the kitchen.
A Growing Family
If you’re welcoming a new addition to your home, it’s time to assess your kitchen and decide if it’s safe for a small child. Necessary considerations include outdated appliances, accessibility to cabinets, and countertops with sharp corners. The general design of your kitchen could be a hazard to small children, which can only be remedied by remodeling.
A Passion for Entertaining
Have you discovered that you’re the life of the party? Want to change the industrial strip light for some warmer old fashioned ceiling lights to give your dinner party that bistro feel? Do you want to enjoy more wine and charcuterie with friends? Entertaining can be a difficult task if your kitchen isn’t conducive to multiple guests. Consider maximizing the space with a remodel. Talk to your contractor about ways that they improve the space for dinner parties and events.
Our needs change as we age. You might not be able to move around like you used to, and items on the top shelf might be out of reach. Whatever the reason, it’s important that every item in your kitchen is accessible. Remodeling the space can help you regain your freedom in the kitchen once again.
