Are those cabinets hanging off the hinges? Do you keep bumping into your fridge every time you want to get to the oven? Are those salmon coloured counters making you cringe? Stop avoiding the most used room in your home with a renovated kitchen that will get you smiling and cooking again. Need an excuse to get started? Here are 4 reasons why you might want to redesign your kitchen:


1. Worst for Wear

As a place where we eat, cook, and clean, kitchens can suffer deterioration over time. If you’ve noticed water damage in the walls, broken tiles on your backsplash, scratched countertops, or cabinets that look like they are falling apart, then you may want to consider a kitchen remodel. When renovating a kitchen, see what can be repaired or replaced. A renovation contractor can also help you with the installation of:

  •  Ventilation
  • Plumbing and electrical
  • Appliances
  • Cabinets and counters
  • Walls and backsplash
  • Floors


2. Back to the Future

You know your kitchen is outdated when the wallpaper is peeling, the cabinets are mismatched, and your light fixtures look as if they come from in the 1970s. Freshen up your kitchen with some of these modern kitchen renovation ideas: 

  • Choose a neutral colour palette with stainless steel accents and warm wood and tile elements.
  • Look for contemporary light fixtures such as a pendant or flush-mounted ceiling light or recessed lighting.
  • Think about a marble, limestone, or concrete countertop.
  • Add counter space and seating with an island or floating counter.
  • Consider custom kitchen cabinets made in Kelowna.
  • Use natural flooring products made from cork, bamboo, or stone.
  • Install modern appliances such as a built-in oven, column refrigerator, or induction counter cooktop.


3. Function Junction

Space and functionality are two essential elements in any home remodelling project, especially kitchens. If two people are unable to be in your kitchen at the same time, or if anything is getting in the way of you being able to store, prepare, or cook your food, then a remodelling project will help your kitchen to function better. For maximum efficiency, think about the kitchen's layout and consider these different styles:

  • One-wall
  • Galley
  • L-Shape
  • Three-wall or Horseshoe
  • Island


4. Financial Incentives

One of the top reasons for remodelling your kitchen is the economic benefit. Not only can you save on bills and take advantage of rebates by installing energy and water-saving appliances, but you can also add to your home's assessment with a renovated kitchen.
