Your kitchen is arguably the most important room in your home. It’s where your family gathers for meals and serves as the crossroads for conversation, socialization, and sustenance.
But kitchens are also the one room in your home that takes the most abuse. It requires the most cleaning. And it receives the heaviest traffic of anywhere else. As a result, kitchens tend to wear out faster than bathrooms, bedrooms, or other living spaces.
So how can you tell when it’s time to upgrade your kitchen. Here are a few telltale signs.
You Avoid Using Your Kitchen
It’s possible to grow sick and tired of your kitchen, especially if you use it all the time. Familiarity breeds contempt.
So if you find yourself finding ways to avoid using your kitchen — such as eating out more often or choosing quick-cook foods that require minimal time using your appliances — it could be a subconscious signal that it’s time to replace your old kitchen with a more modern, inviting one.
Your Appliances Are Outdated
Kitchen appliance technology doesn’t change very quickly, but it does develop over time. If you are still using 20th Century refrigerator and stoves, it could be time to step into the new century by renovating your kitchen from top to bottom.
If you aren’t sure if your kitchen appliances are out of date, check the sales pages for your local consumer goods store in next Sunday’s newspaper. If the stoves, refrigerators, and microwaves are unrecognizable compared to your existing appliances, it could be time to upgrade.
