Most of us want what we think of as a “modern” kitchen. But what, exactly is a modern kitchen? Can’t the term “modern” be used to describe every kitchen that employs electricity? Technically, aren’t all kitchens considered a modern convenience? If so, how do you get modern ideas?
As the housing stock ages and new construction prices rise, more and more people are remodeling their homes than any other time in history. If you live in a house that you generally love and it’s located in a desirable neighborhood, remodeling makes good financial sense. What’s the primary benefit you might derive from a new kitchen?
FUNCTIONALITY – add a walk-in pantry, re-design counter space, and make room for your laptop and printer – anything that complements your lifestyle.
INTERACTION – open up your kitchen to the other adjoining rooms, a new island can be a comfortable place for early morning coffee chats and late evening wine tasting.
SAFETY – reduce risks of accidents and make your much-used room safe. Modify counter top heights to reduce back strain and use green materials to improve indoor air quality.
STORAGE – a well-designed kitchen remodel can greatly increase your storage space and ability to keep organized.
ENTERTAINING – enjoy the fun of entertaining people in your new space.
RESALE – According to realtors, the kitchen and bath are the most important rooms in the house to potential buyers. Reports show that a kitchen remodel can return up to 85% of its cost upon resale.
STYLE – it’s all about you and the beautiful things you appreciate. Make your kitchen a happy place to spend time.
