4 Signs You Might Need a Kitchen Remodel - From Your General Contractor in Chicago, Illinois

March 17, 2020

The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of a home. You make your morning coffee there, bake homemade muffins on the weekend, and have a glass of wine and chat with your friends whenever you feel like it. The kitchen is also often centrally located in the home and tends to be a gathering place for many different occasions.

Sometimes there are obvious signs that your kitchen needs to be remodeled. There are also more subtle signs, sometimes coming from the way you feel about your kitchen.

If one or a few of the following apply to you, it might be time to consider a renovation and start talking to a general contractor in Chicago, Illinois:

You are planning to sell your home soon.

Not only is the kitchen the heart of the home, but it can also be a huge selling point for your home. But maybe you're questioning why you would put money into a home you are going to sell anyway? After all, if you’re going to renovate it, you want to be there to enjoy it, right?

Well, try thinking of it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen before selling it is an investment – and, trust us, it will pay off.  Most buyers are looking for an upgraded kitchen and will pay extra to get it.

Remember to keep things neutral. Do some research on common design trends – we can help with this – and try to keep your own personal style out of the design. This will make it more appealing to a wider variety of buyers.

Your kitchen doesn’t suit your lifestyle.

Maybe your kitchen is small and cramped but you love to cook. Or maybe your kitchen is closed off from the rest of your home or has an uninviting look, but you love to entertain.

In these instances, your kitchen is not conducive to your lifestyle. This might even make you want to move, thinking you don’t care much for your home anymore. However, with some remodeling, that’s a problem we can solve.

You dread cooking in your kitchen.

If you used to love cooking, but you realize you’ve grown to hate it, your kitchen could be to blame. An impractical layout, faulty appliances, or a dark and/or unappealing design can impact your love for cooking – simply because you don’t enjoy being in the kitchen anymore.

Let’s make your kitchen inviting, so you not only will like to cook again, but you will actually look forward to it!

You are short on counter and/or storage space.

Nobody wants to have to cram kitchen stuff in the guest closet. And storage needs also grow and change as your family grows and changes.

A solution like a kitchen island is a great way to add storage and update the look of your home without breaking the bank.
