Two of the most common ways to transform and spruce up a tired-feeling kitchen is with a remodel or an upgrade. While the two are different, they can both revive the space and make you fall even more in love with your kitchen. Is your kitchen due for some upgrades or a remodel? What is the difference between the two?
Upgrades Vs. Remodeling
The biggest decider between the two is typically budget. If you have a smaller budget, a few upgrades are a better choice over an entire remodel. What is the reason why you are having the work done? Is it to add value to your home before you sell it next year, or are you doing it to enjoy your kitchen even more? If you are looking to add the most possible value to your home, a kitchen remodel is going to be your best bet. Interested in increasing your enjoyment in your current home? The best option is the one that will allow you to enjoy your kitchen the most. If the cabinets need a simple refacing and the oven is old, replacing those can increase your enjoyment and prevent you from shelling out big bucks for a kitchen remodel.
Keep in mind that, as long as you are planning on staying in your home for a few more years, you can always start small with a few small upgrades and then add in the future with a total kitchen remodel. The money that you spend now won’t be a waste, since those will be appliances you don’t need to replace when you get a total kitchen remodel.
Focus On Functionality And Value
Several things will increase your enjoyment of your kitchen and add major value to your home. The most common kitchen remodel or upgrade elements that add functionality and value to your home include:
- Countertops, including adding an island to your kitchen
- Cabinets, to add or modify the existing storage space and reface or replace the existing cabinets
- Sinks, if you have an outdated or small sink
- Appliances, if they are old or not energy efficient
