When was the last time you renovated your home house? If it’s been a while, it’s time to voice your opinion and have your way with the house. You might not mind an outdated kitchen, but making updates to your kitchen is crucial, especially if it has certain features that are dating it. Here are the features that often date a kitchen and how to upgrade them.

Old Appliances

An outdated kitchen starts with updated appliances. If you’re strapped to a budget for your kitchen remodel, you may need to upgrade one thing at a time. For example, modern range hoods are excellent additions to kitchens for ventilation. They enhance the home because they’re slimmer and easier to maintain than older models.

Minimal Backsplash

Backsplash is still among the most popular wall coverings. However, applying the backsplash incorrectly can hurt the value of your home. A backsplash that covers only a portion of the wall was a fad that was popular in the early 2000s. However, now that we’re in a new decade, minimal backsplash isn’t as popular as before. Now, homeowners like the look of backsplash that extends from the stove or sink all the way up to the cabinets.

Cluttered Layout

Open layouts allow more room to organize your kitchen utensils and appliances. Even if your kitchen doesn’t have a lot of square footage, an open layout visually adds to the available space. A feature such as an island also adds counter space to provide the modern home chef with more space for stress-free cooking—without cluttering the room.

Laminate and Tile Countertops

Countertops made from inexpensive laminate or tile date your home, and they need to go. A high-quality material such as granite or quartz will make the kitchen feel renewed. Stick to modern materials that fit your price range.

Certain features in your kitchen may date it, and you need to know how to fix them. Every modern chef needs a space that’s convenient and in operable condition, so consider updating your kitchen.
