The Benefits of Remodeling Your Kitchen

You go into your kitchen a lot. Several meals a day are prepared there and you retrieve snacks and drinks throughout the day. Depending on the layout of your home, the kitchen may even be a place where you spend time conversing with your family. The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, which makes it a popular choice for renovation.

Ironwood Custom Remodel has worked with a lot of clients to create the kitchen of their dreams. Below are some of the benefits our clients receive from their remodel.

Enhanced Functionality and Efficiency

A kitchen remodel offers you many opportunities to enhance its functionality. Perhaps you already have an idea of what aspects of your kitchen are holding you back. Not enough storage, an inefficient layout, or not enough food preparation surfaces near the stove are all common areas we see clients want improvement in.

Rearranging appliances, adding an island, or installing additional cabinets can bring homeowners much-needed relief from a poor design. If you don’t know what you want already, a qualified design team can help you find the inefficiencies and make plans to remedy them.

While you’re doing the remodel is a perfect time for installing faucets that are more water-efficient and appliances that are more energy-efficient. Your food will cook better and you’ll save money on the utility bills.

Increased Home Value

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house. Homebuyers pay particularly close attention to how well they’ll be able to work in the kitchen when they decide on a home to buy. As such, a recent kitchen remodel will help you make a powerful first impression on potential buyers.

When looking to buy a home, people want a kitchen that has modern, energy-efficient appliances. Old, outdated appliances are a sure way to put off potential buyers. A kitchen renovation that includes new appliances will build upon that initial first impression.

The quality of materials used in your renovation also plays a role in the resale value of the home. Not only will that increase the value of the home shortly after the remodel, but because they last a long time, the value of the home will stay higher longer.

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

We’ve already touched briefly on the benefits of energy-efficient appliances, but a well-designed kitchen remodel can do much more for the energy efficiency of the home.

Larger windows, skylights, or solar tubes are all great ways to bring more light into the kitchen during the day, reducing the need for artificial lighting. Those cost savings can be taken further with task lighting. These small light fixtures provide extra light to the areas you’re working in more efficiently than lighting the whole room. If the existing window is old, it’s also likely to be a significant source of energy loss.

Another way to reduce the environmental footprint of a kitchen renovation is to build the design around sustainable materials. By using easily renewable materials like bamboo, you can help to preserve more of our natural resources.

Enhanced Lifestyle and Enjoyment

A well-planned kitchen remodel can have a big impact on your daily life. Given how frequently you go into the kitchen, the aesthetic upgrade alone will make a huge difference. But there are other upgrades to be had as well.

Modern kitchens are designed with open-concepts, giving you more space for family interactions and entertaining guests. These open layouts are made possible by highly efficient layouts, making food preparation faster and more enjoyable. Innovative storage solutions remove the stress associated with clutter.

A kitchen renovation is also a time to bring new technology into the kitchen. From smarter appliances to amenities such as wine coolers or coffee stations, your kitchen can be crafted into a modern wonder that’s customized to your personality.
