Why Should You Get Started on a Kitchen Remodel Right Now?

A 2017 Houzz study documented the reasons why people choose to remodel their kitchens. They found the two biggest answers were coming into finances or simply losing tolerance for their current kitchen setup. This study documented the many trends and big ideas of that era’s design style, but this “big idea” is more of a distant fantasy for too many homeowners. We believe you should get started on the kitchen remodel of your dreams now – like, right now. And we’ll tell you why and why we at Friel Lumber Company want to help.

Overall Functionality

At its core, the purpose of your kitchen is functionality. Your fixtures should be working, but it goes beyond that. You should also think about your space’s configuration and all those little annoying quirks you’ve tolerated until now.

Maybe your microwave is positioned in an awkward spot directly above your stove, forcing you to hunch a bit whenever you have to cook. It could be a drawer that can block the fridge or even just limited countertop space for your cooking needs. You want to use your kitchen, and you deserve to use a kitchen remodel to create a kitchen that works with you and not against you.

Update The Design

The time that you spend in the kitchen differs from person to person. Some spend maybe less than an hour just prepping quick meals or grabbing a snack. Those who prefer to do some serious cooking could spend hours at a time throughout the day. Regardless, everyone has to use this part of the house at some point. So shouldn’t it look nice?

If you’re living in an older home, you’re likely living in a diorama of the 60s or 70s. That might be exactly what you’re looking for! There’s no problem with your kitchen if that’s the case. But modern interior design has gone leaps and bounds in the past half-century, and it brings a chance to show your personal style in your cooking space.

Maybe it’ll be enough to change how often people use the kitchen. That quick snacker might choose to sit down and enjoy their treat while they bask in the pleasant lighting and pleasing colors. And the chef in your life might spend a whole day there, biding their time in comfort while waiting for something to rise, boil or simmer. Your kitchen remodeling project can potentially change the way you live your life.

A Kitchen Remodel Adds Value

Let’s say your home isn’t going to be your home forever. If you’re thinking of putting your property on the market, a kitchen remodel is a great way to raise the property value. You don’t even need to stock up your space with the most expensive, the most futuristic appliances and fixtures. Buyers will really only be looking for something better, a better sink or a fridge that does what their outdated model cannot. If you can give them that, you’ve increased your odds of the best sale possible.
