Benefits of a
It is no secret that not only do families spend the majority of their home life in the kitchen, but the kitchen is also the room that sells a home when you put it on the market. An updated kitchen makes this room more useful for you and also makes your home more desirable to potential home buyers when it is time to sell.
Here are the key benefits of a kitchen remodeling project:
A kitchen update can improve the function of this well used space. Adding more cabinets or extending the cabinets to the ceiling can solve storage space issues. Or, knocking out a wall between your kitchen and living space can increase counter space. There are many solutions that can improve the functionality of your kitchen.
Reduce energy costs
When you upgrade your aging appliances, you can choose newer, more energy efficient models that can save on future energy costs. Also, replacing light fixtures with LED lighting can help to reduce overall long term energy usage.
Having low- flow faucets and an energy efficient dishwasher can help to save water, while also saving you money on your utility bills. When you design your remodel, you can also choose sustainable materials for your countertops and floors such as bamboo, reclaimed wood, or recycled materials.
Increase comfort and safety
You can increase comfort by adding seating to your island to give more space for hanging out in your kitchen. Also, larger windows can allow more natural light, which can enhance the overall “feel” of your kitchen. A new vent hood can also increase comfort by reducing unpleasant odors while you cook. Also when you upgrade older appliances, you can increase safety by reducing injuries caused by improper function.
Improve home value
Increasing the value of your home, whether you choose to remain in the home to enjoy the fruits of your labor or put your home on the market, is one of the largest benefits of a kitchen remodeling project. Homeowners can expect approximately 60% return on investment for your kitchen upgrade.
Update the look
When you feel like your kitchen is trapped in a different decade, or perhaps even a different century, you may truly benefit from an update. You may simply choose a fresh coat of cabinet paint and new hardware or go as far as a full kitchen redesign to give a more modern, useful space.
Kitchen Remodeling Tips
Although it is well known that an updated kitchen adds value to your home, here are some specific tips to consider when you begin to design your dream kitchen.
Make the refrigerator accessible to both passerby and anyone working in the cooking or cleanup areas of the kitchen.
Design Wide Walkways
Footpaths throughout a kitchen should be at least 36 inches wide. The cooking zone should range from 42-48 inches depending on the number of cooks you expect in your kitchen.
Think About The Island’s Function
For kitchen islands form follows function. If you plan to both cook and eat on your kitchen island be sure that there is enough space to safely separate the cooktop from the dining area.
Fill Tt Up
Consider an extra swing out tap above your range to avoid crossing the kitchen with heavy pots full of water. Or, if design and space allows, install and extra long hose on your main sink to fill pots on the cooktop.
Deep drawers near the dishwasher makes it easy to unload the dishes without extra twisting and turning. Lower drawers are also beneficial for families with young children to keep snacks and grab-and-go items within easy reach.
Plug It In
Be sure to think about the number of extra outlets and spacing when planning your kitchen. If you know you plan to have a specific area for appliances, it is beneficial to consider extra outlets in these areas..
Consider The Countertops
Allow for 15 inches of countertop space next to both your refrigerator and your cooktop. Some home cooks desire the same amount of counter space next to the microwave as well. Also for those who cook frequently, you will want more space between the range and sink for meal preparation.
Keep Corners Cleared
Plan specific space for cabinet door’s clearance and consider the swing direction of your cabinet doors to ensure that doors won’t bang into each other if open at the same time.
How will a kitchen renovation
Most real estate agents will tell you that kitchens sell houses, so it stands to reason that an updated kitchen is beneficial to the value of your home. Although you are not guaranteed to recoup all of your remodeling costs, it is projected that a kitchen upgrade will offer approximately 60% return on investment.
Nearly 50% said they have more family time, and 41% said they cook more at home. It’s hard to deny those benefits!

Glass countertops are the wave of the future. These easy to maintain, beautiful countertops are highly sought after because of their durability and ease of care.
Designed to meet needs
The layout of your kitchen is important to consider when you begin to design your dream kitchen.
This kitchen is typical of smaller homes or apartments. The kitchen work triangle flattens out to house the sink in between the range and refrigerator for maximum efficiency.
This is typical of an open floor plan and allows for plenty of space for two cooks in the kitchen. This is the most popular design and doesn’t create traffic flow issues typical in many home kitchens.
G- Shaped or Peninsula
The peninsula kitchen give extra counter space and allows for more elaborate appliance configurations. An extra sink or cooktop can be accommodated with this shaped kitchen design.
A galley kitchen is the best choice for long narrow spaces. To create the work triangle, it is important to place the cooktop on one side of the kitchen with the refrigerator and sink staggered on the opposite side to create optimal work flow.
The kitchen island offers optimal creativity for your kitchen design. Kitchen islands definitely give extra counter space and can be an opportunity to house appliances or even your sink. Thinking through this design gives endless options.
This design is versatile for both large and small spaces. It is a variation of the G-shape, removing just the peninsula. The u-shape optimized storage space and allows for an easy flow through your work triangle.
