How to Tell If You Need Kitchen Renovations, Ewa, Hawaii

With age and repeated use, your kitchen’s aesthetic and functional value will likely diminish. You may notice a variety of problems over time, some of which could indicate the need for kitchen renovations. Here’s how to tell when you need remodeling and what a contractor can do to improve the space.

4 Signs You Need Kitchen Renovations

1. Inadequate Storage 

As you grow into your kitchen through the years, your cabinets, pantries, drawers, and shelves will likely become filled with glasses, dishware, groceries, and small appliances. Kitchen renovations allow you to install custom cabinetry that expands the storage possibilities of the space. Include pull-out cabinets for trash bins or rotating cabinets for spices and herbs.

2. Outdated Appliances

kitchen renovationsWhen a range, stove, refrigerator, or dishwasher reaches the end of its life span, it’ll use more gas or electricity to operate it, causing elevated monthly utility expenses. Kitchen renovations allow you to upgrade to more efficient models that save money, conserve energy, and protect the environment. 

3. Significant Damages

Though minor countertop stains and porcelain tile cracks are usually fixable, warped flooring, dry-rotted cabinetry, and a backsplash with mildew often necessitate kitchen renovations. Renovating is often more cost-effective than paying for repairs repeatedly. 

4. Low Home Value

Damaged and outdated kitchens may decrease the value of your property. If your home’s appraisal is lower than you’d like it to be, and you plan on selling, schedule kitchen renovations. You’ll make more money when selling, as remodeling often raises market prices and makes the property more attractive to potential buyers.
