Even if you love your home just as it is, there will come a time when some upgrades or renovations may be necessary. domilya Group has been working with clients in Oakville and Milton for over 10 years and we pride ourselves on taking the time to help clients figure out exactly what they want.
Take a look at some key signs that it may be time to undertake a kitchen renovation.
- The Lone Chef. Older kitchens are usually designed in a way that only allows one person to be cooking or preparing food at a time. In older homes the kitchen is also often cut off from the rest of the house, even the dining area, making it harder to entertain or communicate with family members. Even if you’re working with small spaces, kitchens can be redesigned to create a more open environment or to change the layout to a much more functional design.
- Appliances Close To Expiry. Depending on their age, appliances may be putting you at risk – old gas stoves can start to leak and electrical shortages can become an issue. Appliances also become less efficient and can often drive up your electricity bill. Appliances have come a long way in terms of energy efficiency, function and design, so replacing these items in your kitchen will be worthwhile in the long run.
- You Need More Storage. Functional design has certainly come to the forefront of any renovation. Older kitchens tend to lack storage solutions. Additional storage can change the way your family uses your kitchen entirely and give you the feeling of extra space even if the square footage hasn’t actually changed.
- Wear And Tear. Do you feel like you work hard to keep your kitchen clean but it never seems to sparkle? After several years, cabinets can be soiled (especially the ones near the stove), hinges and hardware need replacing, counter tops can be damaged or stained and flooring cracked. Fixing damaged and worn down areas will make your kitchen easier to use.
