The kitchen is known as the heart of the home. Kitchens bring people together to enjoy a delicious meal or simply to enjoy each other’s company. Unfortunately, a poorly designed, dysfunctional, uncomfortable, or outdated kitchen can become a space you want to keep guests away from, not invite them into. Kitchen remodeling is the best way you can improve your home’s kitchen and bring family and friends together.
Kitchen remodeling poses significant advantages for homeowners. Not only will you improve the space as a whole, but you also enhance your home. Realtor.com performed a survey, and 80% of homebuyers put the kitchen on their list for the top three most important spaces. With such significant importance in a single room, a kitchen remodel in San Jose should be an easy choice.
Benefits of Kitchen Remodeling
The biggest benefit of a kitchen remodel in San Jose is the improvement to your home’s value. The average return on investment for a major kitchen remodeling project is approximately 54%. This means if you are spending $70,116 on the remodel, you’ll recoup an estimated $44,303. Of course, these numbers are averages and vary across the entire United States, but a kitchen remodel can be a significant factor in the future resale value of your home or property.
Energy Efficiency: Money is always a major factor in any remodeling project, but kitchen remodeling is capable of helping you save money in other areas of your home. Older appliances like your refrigerator or dishwasher tend to be less efficient with energy and water. This leads to higher bills every month and wasted resources. By upgrading to newer and more effienct appliances, you can reduce energy consumption and while updating the look and fuctionality of your space.
Enjoy Cooking: It is important to mention your appliances will not be the only thing running more efficiently after kitchen remodeling. You will too! Often, the cause of a kitchen remodel is a lack of space, poor efficiency, and a general dislike of the space. When these issues persist in your kitchen, you cook less efficiently and less often! You should enjoy, not dread, the time you spend in your kitchen. A kitchen remodel helps you feel more comfortable while cooking, which results in a happier and healthier home.
Fewer Injuries: As you and your kitchen operate more efficiently, expect fewer injuries. Cramped and dated kitchens have an increased chance of causing burns, cuts, and overexertion. Old appliances may not work like they should, causing potential burns or bruises. Cluttered kitchens can create situations where you can easily make a mistake.
Entertain Guests: When you dislike the appearance of your kitchen, you will be reluctant to invite friends and family into your home. In modern, open-concept houses, the kitchen is the center of the entertaining space, and a kitchen that feels cramped or outdated will have you dreading the arrival of guests. A kitchen remodel can make you feel like the host with the most!
