As 2016 winds to a close, the presents are all opened, and you prepare for another year—what are your New Year’s resolutions? Aside from the typical answers of losing some weight and exercising more, think about what you would like to get done around the house. If you are looking for a New Year’s resolution that will boost your home’s resale value and help you live happier every day, consider a kitchen remodeling! Here are some of the things to consider when mulling over a kitchen remodel.
Do You Have Enough Space?
An important question to answer during any type of renovation is whether or not you currently have enough space. If you find yourself scrambling to find counter space when cooking dinner or standing too closely together when anyone else is in the kitchen, a kitchen remodel might be able to provide you with the space you’re looking for.
Do You Have Children?
Hopefully, you know the answer to this question, but if you don’t and might be planning on starting a family in the future, it’s another thing to consider. A kid-friendly kitchen might look a little different than an adult-friendly one, so keep children in mind during your kitchen remodel. Updating your kitchen fixtures might be a greater priority to make sure that everything is safe for them to use. If you want your kids to be able to help in the kitchen or they enjoy cooking already, keep counters and cabinets at less intimidating heights.
Location, Location, Location
The last thing to think about during your renovation or kitchen remodel is where you would like your kitchen to be located in your home. Would it be nice to add a deck or screened in porch to the area next to your kitchen for easy outdoor entertaining? Do you want more windows in your kitchen or to swap out a weirdly-placed door for an archway instead? All of these things can be taken care of as part of your kitchen remodel and renovation.
