Can I make a confession? 10 years ago, when we bought our house, there was little suspicion that our kitchen would end up being the least used and most well preserved room in the house. I was not much of a cook back then; so the details surrounding which appliances we chose to furnish the kitchen with were minimal.
Fast forward to today – 2 kids, a lifestyle blog, and a domestic bug I must have been bitten by – and I can honestly say I spend at least a 1/3 of my day in my kitchen. We love to cook and create fun meals for the family and are now at a point where having the latest technology and design – and perhaps a complete remodel – is less of a want and more of a need. Can you relate?
Here are 5 signs it’s time to remodel your kitchen:
The design is uninspiring
Who doesn’t want a kitchen that inspires you to create a delectable 5 course meal fit for a royal family? Instead, you have a drab set up that screams hot dogs and potato chips. I’m exaggerating a bit, but you get the point.
The new KitchenAid appliances at Best Buy features the latest in appliance technology from black stainless to built-in appliances, with a professionally inspired design and the perfect balance of elegance and functionality. Since it’s the room you spend so much of your time in, why not create a strong focal point that will be a conversation piece for years to come?
Spacing is grossly inefficient
As I mentioned before, when we bought our home, it was only the 2 of us. Our refrigerator was rarely full and we prepared simple meals for two that rarely required the use of more than 2 appliances at a time. Now, on any given evening, we are scrounging for space to prepare the night’s dinner, the kids lunches, and worse – space to keep it all in the refrigerator.
Another reason to love the new KitchenAid appliances is the fact that their overall efficiency does wonders to combat this issue. As far as refrigeration options, just imagine the following:
- NEW French Door Refrigeration Configuration: More Drawers for More Possibilities. Five Door offers the ultimate in flexibility, organized storage and easier access to food.
- New 36” French Door Bottom Mount Built-in Refrigerator with platinum interior design.
- Luxury fit, feel and finish with soft close pantry drawers, new crispers, platinum interior with undershelf lighting.
Your appliances are outdated
It’s not even so simple as to say that your appliances are considered outdated if they are older than you are. In fact, with so many new advances in technology over the past few years, even the appliances in your 10 year old home can be considered outdated.
Again, the new KitchenAid appliances offer the latest in appliance technology, including all New Slide-In Downdraft Range options in Electric and Dual Fuel for more ways to cook, Even-Heat™ Technology which means flawless results in their wall ovens and ranges, and Exclusive Steam Rack and Steam Bake cooking options are designed for amazing performance.
You entertain more
I truly enjoy entertaining and I’ll admit, my current kitchen does not have the functionality to prepare to entertain with more than a few dishes at a time. That’s why one feature of the new KitchenAid appliances I love is the Baking Drawer, which offers cooking flexibility to keep dishes warm, slow cook or simply bake at a different temperature than the main oven cavity.
The timing is right
Just feeling like you want to remodel your kitchen isn’t always enough. The “saver” in me will always suggest you find the right opportunity both logistically and financially. With that said, Best Buy offers 18 months major appliance financing or 5% rewards and free delivery on purchases $399+, so you can give your kitchen that lovely chef-quality look, only without spending a fortune to get it!
