Looking for one last nook or cranny for your dishes? Have you found yourself in your kitchen desperately needing more space for cooking? These are some typical signs that it may be time for a new kitchen. Here is a list of signs that you may need to remodel your kitchen.
Counter Top Space
Are you constantly looking for some space to do prep work in your kitchen? Has your kitchen island become the family’s mail room? Sometimes rearranging your appliances more efficiently can open up some counter-top space. However, if this is the case, you may want to consider removing walls to create a great room that contains your kitchen, living room, and dining room. Opening walls also gives you creative options to create a kitchen island.
Are your appliances the same as they were when the house was first built? This could be a very noticeable sign that your kitchen is starting to show its age, but more importantly could be costing you more money than you might think. Recent advances in Green Technology have created a demand for energy efficient appliances that can save you time and money.
You may be aware of the kitchen triangle (the distance between your stove, refrigerator, and sink). However, once again sometimes the minimum isn’t enough, especially if there is more than one cook in the house. To create multiple cooking stations you can easily add a prep sink to create another work station. A well laid out plan should separate the cooking areas from the gathering areas of the home where guests and family socialise.
