When most people are deciding whether or not to upgrade their kitchen – or what upgrades they should do – their budget is one of the most important deciding factors. However, at Mission Tile West, while we understand that everyone has a budget to stay within, we recommend that you consider two essential factors before making a final decision: Function and value.
There are a number of things you can do to upgrade your kitchen so that it’s more functional and has added value. Read on to learn more about some of the options and then reach out to Mission Tile West at 626-799-4595 for more information on out previous kitchen remodeling projects.
Upgrade your countertops
There are three things that can both boost the function and value of your countertops. First, you could add more countertop space. This will make your kitchen worth more and will ensure that you can more easily do the work you need to do in your kitchen. Second, you may be able to change where your countertops are. For example, perhaps you can add additional counterspace in a corner, or an island to the middle of the room. Have separate countertop areas makes it easier to have several cooks in the kitchen.
Finally, adding unique kitchen tiles has a ton of benefits too. Their beauty can increase value and the fact that they’re non-porous and easy to clean means you’ll use less elbow grease and you’ll have a cleaner, safer kitchen.
Upgrade your storage options
You never hear about people complaining that there’s too much storage space in their kitchen. Instead, you hear the opposite complaint: That they want more. If your kitchen isn’t laid out to give you enough storage, then you can look into options to add space for additional cabinets and / or drawers. Once again, an island may be the answer to this issue or perhaps you can customize a closet to be a pantry.
Upgrade your fixtures
Do you have a small kitchen sink? Do you have a kitchen sink that doesn’t work as well as it used to? If so, then it may be worth your while to install a new modern double sink. Not only will it have attractive faucets that will help boost your home’s value, but you’ll be able to wash the dishes, clean food, and complete other kitchen tasks much more easily.
Upgrade your kitchen appliances
It’s common for homeowners to think that they can’t afford to replace all of their appliances. This may be true, but it may also be true that you have enough in your budget to replace one appliance at a time. Upgrading to a larger fridge, or a stove with six burners instead of four will add both functionality and value to your kitchen.
