Is a kitchen remodel on your list of to-do’s for 2016? If not, here are a few reasons why it should be from your friends at Archway!

Treat Yourself

Frankly, you deserve a nice treat this New Year! Let all of that hard work of 2015 pay off by choosing to invest in something that will truly change the way you and your family live. A new kitchen can give you more peace of mind and better quality of life overall…it’s about time you gave yourself that gift.

 

Make Room for Family

A bigger and better kitchen means more room for your family to gather together, whether that’s to cook a meal or bake a dessert, do homework, make art projects, and so many other fun activities. Most kitchen remodeling projects include tearing down a wall to make the space more open, leaving room for more places to sit and more room to spread out together.

Expand Your Cooking Horizons

With an updated kitchen that has all new appliances, you’re able to cook so much more and really expand your horizons when it comes to making meals and other edible creations. Imagine finally having enough room to prepare meals for an entire week or finally being able to host a holiday dinner in your home…there’s nothing like it!

Make Your Life Easier

If you have been living with a kitchen that is cramped and outdated, it can make doing everyday tasks like making coffee or grabbing something out of the refrigerator a difficult task. Not to mention trying to deal with old or broken appliances. A new kitchen will solve these problems and help you live an easier, more efficient life.

Increase Home Value

According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2015 “Cost vs Value” report, a minor kitchen remodel in Chicago can be recouped by 80 percent, while a major kitchen remodel recoups about 68 percent. This is a great investment for those who might be considering selling their home in the coming years.

Increase Home Safety

An outdated kitchen can often present safety risks that you may not be aware of. If the electrical wiring and pipes are old or rusted, anything from mold to fire to gas leaks can occur without much warning. The best way to keep your home safe is to make sure any old plumbing or electrical work is inspected and replaced. This is a critical step that we take very seriously when doing a kitchen renovation.

 

Please Your Senses

How much fun is it to wake up every morning and drag yourself over to an ugly, dysfunctional kitchen and make your breakfast? That’s right, not fun at all. Now imagine a beautiful kitchen that looks clean, sophisticated, and calming to the eyes. That alone will help you start your day better, and you’ll feel a sense of happiness when you enter the kitchen rather than one of dread.

Easy Entertaining

A new kitchen opens up an entire new world of entertaining possibilities. Think about all those dinner parties you wish you could throw but can’t because your kitchen is awful and embarrassing. Imagine being able to set up an entire serving area full of drinks and snacks for your guests to enjoy, while having the space to prepare food and talk to people at the same time. It definitely makes for a more fun and enjoyable time!

 

More Bonding Time

The less time you have to worry about dealing with an old appliance or go back and forth between cooking and socializing, the more time you will have for bonding with your family, roommate, partner, or even yourself!

 

More Bang for Your Buck

Now is the perfect time to get a quote for your kitchen remodel, because labor and material prices increase nearly every year. We are always running great promotions on our materials, and it pays to start at the beginning of the year when prices are usually the lowest. The longer you wait, the more you will pay for the exact same workmanship and material selections, so keep that in mind as you are making a decision.
