Perhaps, the most obvious sign that you need to remodel your kitchen is if the cabinets have some excessive amounts of ware or falling apart. For some, excessive ware or falling apart can have different meanings but what matters is, how does it feel to you? If you are looking for something better it may be time to remodel your kitchen.

Some examples that you are ready for a new kitchen could be the space is just not working with the way you currently cook and prepare.  The work triangle (layout of your sink, cooking range, and refrigerator) seems to be adding “more work” to hosting your big event or just preparing dinner for family and friends. This could be a sign you are ready for a new kitchen.

What about your appliances? How old are they? In our environmentally sensitive world high energy consuming appliances are a thing of the past. Not to mention they add extra cost to the household budget. Not only will an upgrade make your kitchen look more attractive, it will make cooking far easier and more efficient.
