Of course you’d like to modernise your kitchen simply for the pure aesthetics of it, but there are so many more reasons why this might be the perfect time to undergo a much-needed renovation. There is nothing quite like preparing family meals in a well-equipped kitchen with all the latest gizmos and gadgets for the sheer delight of it.
Imagine a kitchen where the oven heats to the proper temperature and there is no rust in the sink to fear staining kitchen linens and your grandmother’s good china passed down over the years. If this is something you are seriously thinking about, you might want to add three more reasons why now is the time to catch up with the times.
1. Energy Efficiency
The very first thing you might want to think about is just how energy efficient modern kitchens are. The greater number of energy efficient appliances you have in your kitchen, the lower your energy bills will be month after month. That, alone, can offset the cost of a total modernisation.
This is one of the main benefits of seeking the services of a company specialising in bespoke kitchens St Albans. Any and all appliances they work into your plans will not only help to reduce the nations carbon footprint, but they will save you a significant amount of money as well.
2. Better Functionality
Consider for just a moment one of today’s SMART kitchens! Many appliances can now be controlled remotely from a single app on your mobile phone. Many working mothers like to place a frozen casserole in the SMART countertop oven so that it has the entire day to defrost, keeping it a ‘safe zone’ as far as food safety goes. Then, at a given time, just before leaving their place of employment they can take out their mobile phone and communicate with that appliance.
You can set temperatures and times so that by the time you arrive home, dinner is piping hot and ready to be served. How is that for convenience? The same can be said of everything from coffee makers to dishwashers. The greater number of SMART appliances you have in your kitchen, the greater the all-around functionality will be.
3. Added Home Value
You may be pondering placing your home on the market at some point in the future. An upgraded, modernised kitchen can be a key selling point with up to 10% added value to your home! Home buyers seem to pay a great deal of attention to kitchens in today’s culture. Not only are they seeking energy efficiency, but most are families just like yours with jobs that keep them away at least 5 days a week. If you are going to modernise your kitchen, don’t scrimp on having SMART appliances installed such as that under-the-counter dishwasher or that multi-function oven installed over the stove.
Happily, you just might not want to list your home on the market just yet because of all the pleasure to be had in your newly renovated kitchen. From SMART appliances to that kitchen island you’ve always dreamed of, you will feel like you are in a totally new home, finally living in the 21st century. How is that for living?
