How To Tell If Your Kitchen Needs A Facelift
At first, you may only get subtle clues that your kitchen needs to be updated or renovated. As time goes by, the subtleness may accelerate into undeniable issues that require a swift resolution. You don’t want to be dealing with broken cabinet hinges, broken appliances, or other problems for more than a month. Your budget may not allow for a complete kitchen renovation, but even with a few savings and budgeting tips creating a kitchen that is functional, efficient, and attractive is possible.

Appliances

Sooner or later, kitchen appliances reach the end of their lifespan. Sometimes, older appliances work, but not in an efficient manner. Replacing small kitchen appliances is a simple process. Replacing items such as the refrigerator or stove can be a bigger issue. You may discover that you’ll need to do some renovation to make room for the newer models of refrigerator and stoves. Replacing non-working or inefficient appliances should be high on your priority list. Research newer models and be sure to measure your available kitchen space before making a purchase.

Kitchen Plumbing

You’ll know it’s time to renovate your kitchen when your plumbing no longer works properly. Faucets that continually drip, a sprayer that is no longer useable or that leaks are problems that shouldn’t be ignored. When replacing kitchen plumbing, you have an opportunity to install items such as a touch-free faucet or a pull-down faucet with sprayer. Check to see what models can fit your old design or if a complete renovation is in order. When examining the plumbing under the sink, look for insects that might be lurking there as well. Enlisting the services of a pest control company to inspect and treat your home is the best way to assure that pests don’t invade your newly renovated kitchen or other areas of your home.

Countertops

Once you’ve taken care of the most important aspects of your kitchen such as appliances and plumbing, you can proceed with the updating by addressing the cosmetic aspects. If your countertops are chipped, faded, or simply outdated, replacing them with new ones will make a big impact on the appearance of your kitchen. Check out knife-proof surfaces and see if it might be an option to get more counter space by having pro measuring done.

Flooring

Kitchen floors get a lot of foot traffic. If your flooring is worn, torn, faded, or incredibly outdated, replacing it will improve the aesthetics of your kitchen. It can also make your kitchen safer. Tears in a floor, chipped tiles, or loose thresholds can cause someone to trip. A new, textured kitchen floor can be safer and more attractive.

Each item you check off your renovation priority list can make a noticeable difference in the appearance of your kitchen. You may also notice a money-saving difference on energy bills with better appliances. This kind of renovation can also add value. Stay smart and invest in the right ways to make this space something you’ll treasure.
