The kitchen is one of the most important spaces in your home.
It’s the one space which probably gets the most use out of all the other rooms in your house, after all. When it comes to investing in home improvements, the kitchen also tends to be the first area most homeowners turn their attention to. Kitchen remodels typically provide the highest ROI (return on investment) of any other type of remodel.
However, figuring out exactly where to start when it comes to a kitchen remodel can be challenging. The following are a few questions you should ask yourself to figure out what you should focus on.
What do you wish your kitchen could do?
Think about some of the things you wish you could do in your kitchen that you can’t. For example, maybe you wish you could use your kitchen as a secondary dining space, or maybe you wish your kitchen was more up-to-date. You could address this by building a kitchen island or a breakfast nook, or by upgrading your appliances.
What are some of your kitchen’s flaws?
What do you not like about your kitchen? Maybe your appliances are outdated or too small. Maybe you don’t have enough storage space and could use more cabinets or counter space. Maybe the layout is poor. If you’re having to walk all the way from one end of the kitchen to the other to get food from the fridge to cook on the stove, your layout may need to be changed to make your kitchen more functional.
How does your kitchen look?
The overall aesthetic of the kitchen is often overlooked in favor of the function. While function is important, so is the format, especially since you’re spending so much time in the kitchen. Ask yourself if you like the colors of the walls and the cabinets, and whether you like the materials of the countertops and floors.
These questions should help you figure out where to get started when it comes to a kitchen remodel. However, you will definitely want to talk to a design specialist who can help guide you when it comes to determining how you actually want to change your kitchen. Keep in mind that even minor, less expensive changes and upgrades can make a big difference. Find out how we can help you remodel your kitchen by contacting us at JSB Home Solutions today.
