As the heart of your home, your kitchen should be a functional and family-friendly area. Nothing’s better than a nice home-cooked meal, but this is impossible to do in a kitchen space that’s badly designed or you don’t enjoy being in. If this applies to you, then it’s probably time to renovate your kitchen.
But, if you need a little more persuading, this blog will explain three of the main reasons why renovating your kitchen is beneficial to you and your family.
According to 2017 research conducted by YouGov, they found that 34% of children eat their evening meal in front of the TV. As a trend, the study suggests that as children get older they become less social with their meals, meaning eating around the dinner table as a family happens less and less. However, eating together is important for the development of social skills as being round the table encourages everyone to talk about their day. In contrast, eating in front of the TV or alone, can lead to overeating and other unhealthy habits. This is why it’s so important to have a functional kitchen space where meals can be prepared and eaten, so eating in the living room does not become an alternative.
If you love cooking or want to be more experimental with your recipes, you may be holding yourself back if your kitchen doesn’t have adequate worktop space, appliances or is simply outdated. A functional kitchen will also encourage you to cook healthier meals, instead of eating quick and often unhealthy ready meals. Furthermore, those who enjoy hosting will benefit from a beautifully renovated kitchen – this area of the home is usually the centre of the party, so why not create the perfect space to serve drinks, food and for everyone to mingle?
Sometimes a kitchen renovation is needed if the space is outdated or no longer serves your needs. Perhaps you’ve gone off your kitchen flooring, or your worktops don’t match your new colour scheme – either way your kitchen should look just as good as the others rooms in your home. This will also create fluidity within your home, giving it a well-designed and attractive feel throughout.
