The kitchen is the focal point for most modern homes with their overall Pinterest-worthy and attractive aesthetic. It’s a space where people spend most of their time, whether it’s cooking, enjoying a meal, or relaxing. The kitchen is a space where people can gather together when family or friends come over, making it an indispensable place that should be designed to suit your specific needs and requirements.
Like fine wine, the kitchen needs time to blossom and mature into a space that’s adorned by homeowners. Whether it’s choosing the colour schemes, layouts, materials, built-in appliances, etc., each part of the kitchen should be selected meticulously to create the overall finished masterpiece. The kitchen isn’t something you can change too often, and you want to have a long-term view of it. And when you do it right, it can really transform your home.
With this in mind, the following are the top 4 reasons why you should consider redecorating your kitchen.
- Adds value to your home
If you have a budget that limits you to only renovating one room, let that room be the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of your home. As such, it stands to reason that this is the room most buyers will focus on. It’s estimated that a new kitchen can improve the value of a home by about 5% to 15%.
In fact, most industry experts believe that kitchens are a crucial room to decorate for homeowners looking to secure a sale when looking to relocate – especially those airy and light-decorated contemporary designs, including our light-grey stone quartz, which will help create an elegant yet minimalist look that is trending in the world of interiors.
High-quality countertops are also a must-have in any contemporary kitchen design to boost the value of your home. Besides being the literal working surface for the entire kitchen, they are a great focal point for the eye and can help boost the value of your home through the upgraded performance and appearance they offer.
- Improved energy savings
Kitchen appliances and utensils are some of the major contributing factors when it comes to utility bills. As such, if you’re looking for ways to lower your energy consumption and create an eco-friendly kitchen, this is a great place to start. A contemporary kitchen can easily facilitate these needs, and help you build an energy-efficient space and considerably lower your monthly bills.
- Enhanced functionality
One great thing about a kitchen remodel is that you can design the space to be specifically tailored to your personal and daily requirements, and ideally replace anything you dislike in the existing kitchen.
An oven that feels old and antiquated is not quite the impressive feature as it was in the 1970s. Opting for a stainless steel appliance makeover with quartz surfaces can be an energy-efficient option that also elevates the aesthetic of your kitchen.
Modern kitchens will essentially let you install just about anything you need. If you want a dedicated space for cutlery, you can install a knife draw in close proximity to your quartz centre island. If you want more space to practise your culinary skills without feeling claustrophobic and cramped, you can install heaters within the island kitchen countertops. A contemporary kitchen remodel gives you the innovation and flexibility to create a space that works for you.
- Create a space you love
While people may resent change and want to stick to their ways, the best part about a kitchen remodel is that it’s such an effective way of changing the scenery in an aesthetically pleasing way, which is something many people are craving now more than ever.
