You know that you are no longer in love with your kitchen. You find yourself having your morning cup of coffee in your living room instead of at your kitchen table like the good old days. You formulate a plan. It is time to fall in love again. If you still love most of what you see, we have 5 Updates to Transform Your Kitchen.
The 5 signs below, however, mean you probably need a remodel to spark that flame again.
Your floor plan has you flustered. You feel isolated every time you step into your kitchen to cook. Your sink is in the wrong place for a quick vegetable wash.

It does not matter how many times you watch shows on organization or invest in the latest system. You still have items overflowing due to a lack of real storage space in your kitchen. If you pare down anymore you will feel like you are back in your college dorm using one pot and a hot plate. If you cannot integrate storage into what you have, it is time to acquire a new system.
- The Cabinet and Countertop Test
Paint is wonderful. There is no denying that. There comes a time when paint just is not enough. If you are dealing with cabinets that are truly past their prime, in the wrong place, or simply absent because you do not have enough of them, it is time to invest in new ones.
Your countertop is dull no matter how much you shine it. It looks like a world map of past transgressions in the form of wine spills. The material is nothing you would pick today. You have no space to roll out pie crust and end up using your kitchen table. It is time for new countertops.
- Future Value

Investing in a needed kitchen remodel will add to the future value of your home. You can expect to recoup much of your investment and up your home’s market value.
