10 signs you need a new kitchen in 2024

Even the most durable kitchen materials and fixtures wear down over time. 'When surfaces fracture, it's time to fix them,' explains interior designer Artem Kropovinsky. 

1. DETERIORATION OF FITTINGS

The way we live changes over time, leaving unfulfilled requirements. 'One of the most obvious signals that it's time for a new kitchen is a lack of utility,' says interior designer Hilary Matt on behalf of Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove.

2. LIFESTYLE CHANGES

Saggy kitchen cabinet doors are much worse than ones that no longer hang correctly. "If your wall cabinets are sagging and attempting to become base cabinets, it's probably time to remodel," says Thomas Borcherding, the main designer and owner of Homestar Design redesign. 

3. SAGGING CABINETS

Struggling with a terrible layout? It's a clear sign that it's time to change. The design of the cooking zone is critical not only to the room's functionality, but also to its safety. 

4. POOR LAYOUT

Style is subjective, but a kitchen with golden oak could be worth renewing. 'The presence of golden oak in a kitchen raises the risk of having to redesign enormously,' explains Thomas Borcherding. 

5. GOLDEN OAK

There is a 'just right' level of kitchen lighting, and if yours isn't, it's one of the reasons you should redesign. 

6. DIM OR OVERBRIGHT LIGHTING

Inspect the grout; it may suggest that a new kitchen is a good option. 'I frequently encounter cracked grout lines before rebuilding a client's kitchen,' explains Thomas Borcherding. 

7. CRACKED GROUT LINES

Previous generations of appliances were more energy-intensive than modern designs, so a kitchen that still relies on them needs to be updated.

8. TIRED APPLIANCES

Effective kitchen storage is critical to the area, so take an objective look at how it is functioning. 'Full or empty cupboards make a difference with contemporary storage needs,' explains Artem Kropovinsky. 

9. WRONG CABINET TO CONTENT RATIO

Steve Pallrand, founder of Home Front Build and CarbonShack, believes that one appliance is essential for the space. 'If your kitchen does not already have an electric induction cooktop, it is absolutely time for an upgrade in 2024,' he says. 

10. LACK OF INDUCTION COOKTOP
