The kitchen is the heart of the home. We spend so much time there together, cooking, relaxing, talking, cleaning (somebody has to do the dishes), and even doing work for our job or our schools. If your kitchen isn’t everything that it could be, maybe it’s time for some updates, especially if those updates pay off in the long run. Check out these signs that your kitchen seriously needs an upgrade to help you decide.
You Struggle To Keep It Clean
If there’s one room in the house that should be clean, it’s the kitchen. After all, this is where you prepare your food. But as they age, kitchens become harder to clean, from cracks in the countertop to stains on the linoleum. New materials make cleaning easier than ever, and swapping out everything that’s old and busted will make your kitchen seem brand new.
Counters Are Cluttered
Even a clean kitchen won’t look clean if your counters are covered with miscellaneous stuff. A well-organized kitchen should have storage space for everything. If the counter is that storage space, it’s time to upgrade your actual kitchen storage. Choose new storage options that actually work for you and all your stuff.
Lighting is Lacking
A dim restaurant may be romantic, but a dark kitchen is hard to work in and makes people want to be elsewhere. Updating your lighting can help to transform your kitchen from drab to amazing and bring the family back to this family space. Don’t just look to the ceiling either – under cabinet lighting and natural light from windows can also help you out here.
There’s No Space To Congregate
If your family never joins you in the kitchen, it may be a clue that something needs to be improved. It could be because there is not enough space for anyone to help without constantly bumping elbows. Or it could be because there aren’t enough comfortable places to sit and relax or work. Think about who you want in the kitchen and where they can comfortably go. Upgrading your seating and table space or adding an island, expanding the area between major appliances, and creating distinct work zones can all help to make more space for family time to return to the heart of the home.
