If your kitchen needs a refresh then it‘s well worth the time and money you will spend on modernising its look and feel. We‘ve compiled the 4 most important reasons why it‘s so necessary for this modern day and age.
We spend plenty of time in the kitchen
Whether you enjoy cooking or not, we tend to spend a number of hours in the kitchen preparing some type of meal, simple snacks or when entertaining with friends and family. Conversations flow while preparing food and it is much more enjoyable if the space is beautiful and functional, and can accommodate all the guests you have.
Adds value to your property
Some renovation projects can overcapitalize the property‘s value and potentially put you into debt if you cannot sell for your asking price. You need to take careful consideration on how you redesign your space, to not exceeding your budget but still achieving the modern look and feel you desire. Real Estate agents with many years of experience will tell you that a kitchen can make or break the sale of a property. A modern, open plan kitchen using decorative wood-based panels and some clean lines will encourage most buyers to spend a bit more and to follow through with a purchase.
Health & Wellness
Eating out is expensive and often does not offer the healthiest choices. While it is a good option now and again, with the increase in contamination and poor quality, we need to take control of what we feed our bodies. Spending some time planning meals and preparing them should become a part of our daily routines to ensure a healthier lifestyle. A beautifully designed kitchen will certainly encourage us to spend more time in the space, and the latest trends in kitchen design have encouraged more living herbs and wall-mounted gardens. These fresh herbs right at your fingertips will allow you to cook with fresher ingredients and save money when shopping.
Design to recycle
Minimising our carbon footprint is our responsibility and it has been made easier with companies that will collect and sort plastic, paper, bottles, ink cartridges and other recyclable items for you, but it is necessary to separate your waste into different bins. This will require a clever design to make it quick and easy for you. Consider using a Bokashi Bin for your garden cuttings, that can become liquid fertiliser to feed your kitchen herbs, and help to minimise the decomposing waste products. Use another bin for all your recycled materials that are easy to reach when cooking.
"The kitchen is the heart of the home" idiom really does ring true, that‘s why we think you should make a kitchen renovation your next investment goal for 2019.
