6 Signs You Need a New Kitchen

Is it time to revamp your kitchen? From bad layout to outdated style to wear and damage, these are 6 signs you need a new kitchen.


1. Your kitchen has a bad layout

A poor kitchen layout is not practical and doesn’t suit your needs. Maybe you like to entertain in your kitchen but there’s nowhere for guests to sit and socialise. Or your layout is not optimised for an efficient work triangle which makes cooking difficult. Think about how you use your kitchen and reconfigure the layout with these key functions in mind so that your space better meets your needs.


2. Your kitchen is short on space

Whether you’re struggling to find enough worktop space when cooking or your kitchen feels too cramped and crowded when your family gets together for dinner, these are key signs that you need a kitchen upgrade to enhance the amount of space in your home. Whether maximising space by optimising the layout or increasing storage, a well-considered, thoughtfully designed new kitchen can open up more space in your home.



3. Your kitchen is lacking in storage

Are your cupboards full with pots, pans, plates, dishes, and cutlery? Are countertops cluttered with utensils, appliances, and dinnerware? Then you could benefit from a kitchen update that will increase storage space. A renovation can enhance your kitchen by introducing clever storage solutions such as shelves, drawers, cabinets, corner units, hooks, and racks. This will increase storage space and ensure there is enough room for all your kitchen essentials.


4. Your kitchen has wear and damage

It’s perfectly normal for your home to experience wear and tear with regular use, but if your kitchen is looking more worse for wear, this is a key sign that you need a refurbishment. Look out for signs of damage such as broken doors, cracked tiles, discoloured surfaces, leaks, and mould. If your kitchen has any of these defects, you need a renovation before they get worse and become more expensive and potentially dangerous issues.



5. Your kitchen has an outdated, old-fashioned style

If it’s been a while since you last updated your kitchen’s style, this can make your whole home seem older and outdated. If so, it’s time for a kitchen makeover so you can enjoy a space that expresses your personality. Optiplan Kitchens has a stunning range of kitchens, from classic, shaker styles to modern and contemporary styles. You’ll find a design that will refresh your kitchen and transform your home.


6. You don’t enjoy spending time in your kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home – a place in which we cook, eat, socialise, entertain, work, and relax – so we should enjoy spending time in it. But maybe you despise cooking in there or try to keep guests out. Or you just don’t like being in your kitchen due to a lack of space, it’s falling apart, or the style is uninviting. This is a sign you need a new kitchen so that you can create a space that you enjoy spending time in.
