You already know all of the reasons why your current kitchen design isn't working for you overall or in-part. But, if you need that extra push to move forward with updating your kitchen, the 2019 Remodeling Impact Report from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) reveals that 74% of those surveyed have an increased sense of enjoyment when they are home since completing their remodeling project.
Although kitchens have long-been thought of as the heart of the home, they have become even more critical and central to daily life as we've been staying-in more due to the globally impacting, hard-to-kill COVID-19 virus. Shortly back in 2014, the United States Department of Agriculture cited that Americans over 18 years of age spend 37 minutes in food preparation and cleanup.
In 2020, kitchen backsplashes are as varied and ranging as the homeowners who select them. They can be anything you want them to be, and you can select what best suits you and your unique preferences. What's more, they can help make your kitchen a reflection of your personal style.

As you're thinking about kitchen improvements, or contemplating a whole remodel of the most frequently used room in your house, a quick check list will likely include kitchen cabinets, flooring, appliances and countertops. However, before you get too far down the path in planning, pause to also consider how to make your kitchen distinctly yours.
Here's a scenario we come across more frequently than you'd think: Homeowners have existing granite countertops that they really like, often recently installed or just well preserved, and they don't want or need to replace them. But the cabinets underneath are noticeably not "up-to-snuff" anymore. What should they do?
When planning your budget for a kitchen remodel, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) recommends allocating 10-25% of your home's value. The NKBA also cites kitchen cabinetry as the largest expense, accounting for up to of 30% of your overall kitchen remodeling budget.
