5 Signs Your Kitchen Needs an Upgrade

Many homeowners believe that kitchens are the most important part of their home, which makes sense when you consider the fact that kitchens are utilized to cook, dine, and entertain guests at holiday parties or social gatherings. With kitchens being such a large part of every day life, it’s important that you feel comfortable and proud of your kitchen.

That being said, it may be time to consider remodeling your kitchen. Not sure if your kitchen is outdated or up to par? Creation Cabinetry has you covered, as we’ve assembled a short list of general problems that face homeowners in the cooking space.

Without further ado, here are five signs that your kitchen needs an upgrade!

Broken Drawer Boxes

If your cabinet drawers boxes are beginning to give you problems, it’s likely that they’re on their way out. Having to constantly fiddle with drawers to get them to properly open and close can quickly become aggravating – dealing with such a thing for extended periods of time, though, is absolutely infuriating.

It sounds like a minor problem, but, if you’ve ever dealt with such a thing, you can easily relate to the annoyance. It’s something that will slowly eat at you, as every time you need to use the drawer, it becomes more of a hassle.

Poor Floor Plan

If you’ve ever lived or operated in a kitchen with a poor floor plan, you know exactly the kind of struggle it can become. From oddly placed islands to cringe worthy cabinet configurations, we’ve seen poorly utilized floor space on countless occasions. Having a kitchen designed to your liking is key, and it’s something that Creation Cabinetry believes is fundamentally necessary to the design process. Being able to converse with the customer about what they’re looking to get out of their kitchen helps us design a kitchen that is perfect for them.

Outdated Style

Kitchens, like the rest of the house, are subject to style changes and trends over time, meaning, if your kitchen was updated in the 80s or 90s, it’s likely that your kitchen is quite outdated by today’s standards. That being said, many of the materials and styles of today should keep for an incredibly long time. From countertop colors to the style of the hardware on your doors and drawers, if you feel like your kitchen needs to be updated, it probably does.

Wasted Space

A fairly common complaint that customers have is that they are simply wasting space in their kitchen, something that is fairly easy to correct during the design process. By utilizing the entirety of the allotted space, Creation Cabinetry can get the most out of your kitchen. Whether it’s by inserting creative units into the cabinetry to increase the usefulness of a blind corner or hanging cabinets on free wall space, Creation Cabinetry always finds a way to get the job done the way you want it.


Having adequate storage in your kitchen is a must, especially if you’re someone that has an abundance of containers or cooking items and utensils. If that’s the case and you’re lacking storage solutions, fear no more, as Creation Cabinetry has a number of answers when it comes to storage. From drawer inserts to pull down shelving options, we can work with you to get the most out of your kitchen in terms of storage space.

If any or all of these things are true, it might be time to consider having your kitchen upgraded. Call us at (610) 562-4700 or visit our show room for more information, we’re located at 557 State Street, Hamburg, PA.
