On average, Wellesley area homeowners remodel their kitchen once every eight to twelve years. Renovations are also very common after a home’s been sold. Other reasons that prompt a remodel include a lasting change to the health and mobility of a family member, a change in family membership, and plans to sell the home.
But those aren’t the only reasons people remodel their kitchens. As Wellesley Kitchen Designers, we’ve worked with several area homeowners who take on kitchen renovations because they truly enjoy making their home more beautiful and comfortable. It’s a creative endeavor that provides an opportunity to make their home more uniquely theirs. Our surroundings can be an expression of ourselves, each renovation a chance to custom craft the environment we live in.
And there are homeowners who upgrade their kitchen specifically because they’ve developed a new culinary passion. If you’re serious about making jam, for example, you need a design that allows you to process fruit pounds at a time, as well as space for jars; the avid baker needs ovens equal to their aspirations. There are quite a few home brewers in the Wellesley area – if you’re one, imagine the kind of kitchen set up you’d like to have. Anything is possible when you work with a kitchen designer who knows how to make it happen with a realistic budget.
A kitchen remodel can make it easier to stay in your home longer. Kitchen design that’s designed for long term living is both beautiful and functional. The key is integrating elements that operate flawlessly with minimal effort – think touchless faucets and self-closing cabinetry – with surfaces and floorings chosen for safety and style. Also key? Lighting and ambiance. Smart window selection and placement allows for lots of natural daylight and an open, airy feel. Important to consider for your forever home.
