Millennial homeowners are in it for renovations, as the houses they bought on the cheap require some upgrades in the near future. Even those with a decent property are also looking to renovate, to make their home something more enjoyable and worth coming back to at the end of the day.
It’s no secret that kitchens are one of the most renovated parts of the house, competing with bathrooms for the top spot. But what do you want to achieve in your kitchen? These emotions are what your upgrades should evoke:
For dinner, your diet calls for a simple but healthy salad. There’s not much to do but chop the ingredients, dress, and toss. It’s a simple task that can be quite boring, and if you’re not a fan of salads in the first place, it may be downright unappetizing. But not if you have a kitchen in Salt Lake City that inspires ideas and healthy eating. A kitchen remodel should incorporate elements that make you excited to prepare your food and to eat it. Those trendy countertops sure add excitement to the room as you want to share your food on Instagram.
There’s nothing more rewarding than digging into homemade lasagna or a homemade pie at the end of a stressful day. You want to go to bed in a good mood, so the kitchen should not have a tense vibe to it. This would, of course, partly depend on how well you keep the room in order. Appliances should be clean and well-maintained, which means part of your renovation budget should go into replacing old appliances with newer, more energy efficient ones.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if you’re entering a chaotic and run-down kitchen with barely any appliances working properly, you might prefer to just run on an empty stomach. It’s not a healthy alternative to get take-out this early either. A newly remodeled kitchen will greet you in the morning as you take out your box of cereals or prepare bacon and eggs. No matter the family’s breakfast preference, the smell of filling food in the morning sets you off to a good start.
There are emotions involved in the process of renovating and after it. To be satisfied with the changes, it should make you feel good about yourself.
