Is your Kitchen due for an update - a Kitchen Remodeling "Checklist"

Posted 4 years 300 days ago by Jim Grace

It’s the start of a new year and the buzz around kitchen remodeling is louder than ever. Is it time for you to consider kitchen remodeling? Here’s a “list” of fun clues that can help you determine if the time is right for you to remodel your kitchen:

You may be ready for kitchen remodeling if….

• the cabinets are older than you are

• you use the reference “just like my parents kitchen” or “like the kitchen we had growing up” when describing your own kitchen

• you start to believe that the appliance colors you have really are making a comeback when really, they’re not (C’mon…Avocado Green? Harvest Gold? Really???)

• you have polished brass….anywhere

• you wash everything thoroughly before putting it in the dishwasher

• your kitchen always looks clean…but only because there is not enough lighting to tell otherwise

• you have a countertop microwave with a dial timer

• duct tape holds together any part of your kitchen

• you're afraid to put 1 more thing on a shelf because it's bending so much that it’s actually smiling at you

• the main lighting for your kitchen comes from 2 long fluorescent tube light bulbs

• your stylish “open shelf” cabinet is really just missing a door

Do you have 1 or more of these symptoms? It’s okay. Take a breath. And know we are here to help, whether you are ready to start immediately or just ease your way into it. We will work with whatever is best for you. Plus, studies show that kitchen remodeling is one of the top 3-5 things you can do to improve the value of your home. So the time may be just right to make that dream of a new kitchen you have finally come true and now you have the list to prove it!
