Remodeling Your Kitchen? Consider These Factors
While summer is a great time to get some outdoor projects done?perhaps you had new lighting installed on your patio, or you invested in your landscaping?this is the time of year that weather cools and indoor projects become more appealing.
One indoor project that many Denver area homeowners undertake is a remodel of their kitchen. You probably already have an idea of the things you want in your new kitchen, if you?re already planning such a project. Perhaps new cabinets, and maybe even new plumbing fixtures. We?ve added some considerations for you to make below, that can improve the functionality, efficiency, and even aesthetic appeal of this very important room.
Consider Lowering Your Energy and Water Use
This probably isn?t your primary objective in remodeling your kitchen, but it?s a good one to consider! Many people who have done this have found they can significantly lower their monthly utility bills by making simple changes?more efficient lighting, better cooking fixtures, and low-flow plumbing fixtures can result in a kitchen that?s more beautiful, easier to use, and money saving! Plus, you?ll be helping out the environment.
Consider How You Can Increase the Value of Your Home
People who invest in remodels are usually doing it for one of two reasons?either so they can better enjoy their living space or because they?re selling their home and want to make additions to it to make it more appealing. Even if you?re in the former camp, chances are that someday you?ll sell your home. And kitchens are one of those places in a home that receives the most scrutiny from buyers.
Consider Going Modern
Perhaps your kitchen is in great condition, but just looks outdated. A kitchen built in the 1970s can be a bit of an eyesore for some, when compared to modern construction and ideas of what?s visually appealing. A remodel can give your kitchen a 21st century update, which will help your home feel fresh, updated, and new.
Consider Low Flow Options
Whether your rinsing off vegetables in the sink or running your water while the garbage disposal runs (which, you should do if you?re not already), you don?t need the water to spray out like a firehose. This is wasteful and leaves you paying for more water use than you actually need to use. There are a number of low-flow kitchen sink models on the market today that can help you save water, and subsequently save money.
