4. Your Kitchen is Outdated and Want to Modernise It

If you’re still using a microwave older than your children’s, it’s time to update your kitchen. You’re definitely due for a remodel if you have an avocado green refrigerator. Of course, if you have a beautiful, vintage refrigerator, you don’t have to replace it. 

5. You Don’t Have a Proper Kitchen Layout

Even if your kitchen is the right size, you might find it lacking functionality. Do you get frustrated when you’re trying to do everyday tasks? If so, you should remodel your kitchen to make it more functional, and so you don’t dread doing the tasks you have to do.

7. There’s Serious Damage to the Kitchen

This includes small holes and cracks that worsen or get larger over time. Cracks in the drywall are a telltale sign that the kitchen is too neglected. If you have a hole more than an inch in diameter, you need to do something about it now.
