KITCHEN REMODELING: TELL-TALE SIGNS YOU NEED ONE!
There is little question in northern Virginia that the housing market essentially requires a kitchen remodel in most homes.
Why? Kitchen remodeling, if done correctly and professionally, can actually add more value to your home than the money you put into the work, and with the housing market still recovering from the 2008 crash, many homeowners have had to look at their options of how to get the most out of their homes when they sell.
Curb Appeal and the Kitchen
Kitchen remodels rank right up there with landscaping and updating the front of a house as the areas where a homeowner can get the most bang for his or her buck when trying to get a home ready to sell and get maximum profit and value.
The trick you often have to perform is the proverbial tightrope – you want to remodel your kitchen so it’s updated and upgraded with state-of-the-art and modern features, but you don’t want to do too much that you end up pricing the house beyond the market of the neighborhood.
However, you also have to consider the up-front expense of a kitchen remodel, especially in northern Virginia, to determine if you even need a new kitchen or not. Not every house needs one, depending on the quality of the materials, the age and the pricing market of the neighborhood.
Do You Need a New Kitchen?
Yes, it is possible that you may have already bought a house that had state-of-the-art appliances and the very best cabinetry and countertops money could buy. In that case, you’re probably all set. But if you have been in the house for a number of years and have not made any upgrades, you could be in a position to be asking yourself if you should do a kitchen remodel if for no other reason than just for your own sanity.
But if you are looking to determine if you do need a kitchen remodel in your home, here are a few things to look out for in your kitchen; any of some of these can be very strong signs that maybe a new kitchen is in your future.
- Shelving not holding up.
- Large gashes in the countertops.
- Drawers sticking or not moving fluidly anymore.
- Door hinges coming loose, preventing doors from closing properly.
- Bumps in the tile.
- Appliances that are not top-of-the-line and are older models.
- Lack of storage or floor space.
- Outdated look.
- Doesn’t function properly to meet your needs.
