The room that you spend so much time in needs to be comfortable, attractive and functional, so if you are currently trying to figure out whether your kitchen is outdated, here are some things to look for:

  • Design that was popular decades ago – floral wallpaper, a scratched, dull, laminate countertop, taps and faucets that were fashionable in the 1990’s or earlier are sure signs of an outdated design;
  • Electrical power circuits that are not up to modern standards – ground fault circuit interrupter breakers are obligatory nowadays – if your kitchen does not have them, it is definitely an outdated (and potentially dangerous) space;
