When you are considering Kitchen Remodeling in an older home, don’t forget to take a good look at the actual location of the existing kitchen within the layout of the entire footprint of the house. In considerably old homes, many additions may have been added over the years, and then the kitchen becomes “Landlocked”, or at the least in an unfavorable location. Many production homes from the 1950′s and on were not really given much time and effort to kitchen design. Certainly before and prevalent during the 1950′s, the kitchen was simply utilitarian, and the woman’s domain for producing meals for the family. Since almost all Architects and Builders were men, women didn’t get too much input into kitchen design. So most homes built from then to about the 70′s were pretty small, boring, and basic. You can only imagine in those boom years of building, how many homes still have those same rooms that cease to function for today’s lifestyle. Many people will still suffer through trying to get a proper kitchen remodeling into a bad footprint, and wonder why better designs can’t be accomplished with the space they have. Usually it’s because the original kitchen is in the wrong location or needs some kind of wall rearrangement.
