Our kitchens have become more than a place we cook and eat, especially during this past year. The kitchen has had to accommodate work-from-home, more togetherness, and additional wear and tear. It’s changing the way we use and view the most used room in the house, making it the perfect time to consider a full kitchen remodel.
From Kitchen to Classroom (or Boardroom)
Working from home has taken on a whole new meaning and, while we expect to be going back into the office and school in person, the new trend that has been set will have lasting effects. Some aspects of remote working and learning are here to stay, so creating a permanent workspace in or near the kitchen might be something to consider during a full kitchen remodel. For example, counter space can double as a desk by day and serving area by night, and cabinets can be a great place to store school and office supplies.
Function and Form
Kitchens are one of the most used rooms in the house, and this year has been no exception. We are cooking at home more and, without activities to run to, the entire family is getting involved in meal prep and having dinner together. While you might love the extra family time, you might also suddenly realize that the kitchen you thought was spacious and easy to navigate suddenly feels smaller. You might be wishing you had more counter space for those small kitchen appliances that are getting regular use, more workspace to accommodate the extra cooks in the kitchen, and a more functional pantry. A full kitchen remodel can help your family continue the trend of cooking and eating together, while creating a beautiful space that everyone enjoys.
More Time and Money
The extra time we’re spending in the kitchen can also show on our cabinets, counters, floors and walls. A full remodel of your kitchen can include low-maintenance cabinet and appliance finishes, floors and fixtures, so you have more time to enjoy your meal, and spend less time cleaning up after. In addition, a full kitchen remodel will provide one of the best returns on investment in your home. And who doesn’t want more time and money?
