For families all over the country, the kitchen is the hub of activity, the center of the home and the place where everybody loves to hang out. Your kitchen might be a bit outdated and in need of a makeover, but remodeling a kitchen is not just a big expense, it is also an inconvenience.

In spite of this, there are plenty of homeowners who will proceed with a kitchen remodel. The reasons may vary, but they all have very good reasons to remodel their kitchens.

William Raveis Real Estate, your real estate agency serving Vermont, offers a few great reasons you should consider remodeling your kitchen.

New Technology

What would you think about having a WiFi-enabled refrigerator with a touch-screen, voice assistant and voice-controlled commands? It might sound like something from the future but these are all available on modern refrigerators.

And it’s not just refrigerators that have come a long way. All kitchen appliances have improved immensely over the years.


Your kitchen may have worked very well for the previous owners, but it doesn’t really fit you or your family’s lifestyle.

Perhaps your kitchen lacks a breakfast bar, and your family would love a place to gather informally to enjoy a quick bite to eat or a cup of coffee.

Financial Incentives

One more good reason to remodel your home is that it will save you money. Modern appliances are much more energy efficient than older ones, by a long shot. This means you will have lower utility bills after you replace your refrigerator, stove and dishwashing machine.

Personal Taste

There is a good reason why you hate your kitchen cabinets and the tiled floor; it is because the previous owner picked them out and in no way do they reflect your personality. If you were a tile person, you could live with it, but you are more of a hardwood floor type.

Remodeling your kitchen means you can get rid of the stainless steel appliances and opt for black or red appliances instead. Really, whatever you desire.

If you prefer marble countertops, then get marble countertops when you remodel.


Homeowners often remodel to increase the value of their home. In addition to adding value, a remodeled kitchen is also very desirable for potential home buyers should you choose to sell. You can bet there will be more interest in your home if you have the kitchen remodeled.

You Deserve It

The only reason you really need to remodel your kitchen is that you deserve it. As the heart of the home, your kitchen is where you, your family and visitors spend most of their time. Make your kitchen the best looking room in the house.

Change Things Up

Yet another good reason to remodel your kitchen is that sometimes we all need to change things up. A kitchen remodel will leave your kitchen looking totally different and garner you a little excitement.
