Renovating the kitchen is something that you can think about for years before deciding to act and for good reason – it’s a big decision to undergo a major redesign. After all, how do you know when the time is right? Today, we’ll be looking at the top signs that it’s time to consider proceeding with your kitchen renovation.

1.The current layout isn’t functional

It’s amazing what we can get used to and you might have been struggling with the same awkward kitchen layout for years without really giving it much thought. However, it sometimes gets to the point where it’s time to upgrade your design to something that suits the needs of you and your family. If you have a layout which is awkward to use, doesn’t use the space efficiently and is simply not practical, despite your best efforts to adjust, a renovation might be on the cards.

2.The kitchen is hopelessly dated

Perhaps your kitchen design was all the rage 30 years ago but unfortunately it now looks drab and dated. You spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it’s difficult to enjoy the experience when you feel like you’re stuck in a time warp. Not only can a dated kitchen be difficult to deal with from an aesthetic perspective, it often means that you’re left with older appliances which simply aren’t efficient anymore. That’s why dated décor and appliances is often one of the main reasons why people decide to go ahead with a redesign.

3.The storage space is limited

There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a kitchen which simply doesn’t have the storage space to keep up with your needs. There’s only so much stacking of crockery, pots and pans you can do before your cupboards seem like they’re bursting at the seams. A lack of storage also tends to mean cluttered benchtops as your appliances just don’t fit. When you renovate your kitchen, modern kitchen design means that you have endless options when it comes to innovative storage solutions.

4.The kitchen shows signs of damage

One of the most telling signs that a kitchen renovation is in order is when your existing kitchen shows signs of damage. This could be water damaged cabinets, chipped and marked cabinetry or splashbacks, worn benchtops, or any other signs of serious wear and tear. When you’re noticing damage, particularly if it’s structural, a kitchen overhaul may be the next logical step.
