15 Common Kitchen Problems That NEED Fixing!

June 18, 2021

The kitchen has a lot of moving parts. While that means you can get a lot done in your kitchen, it unfortunately also means that a lot can go wrong. In this article, we’re going to cover some of the most popular kitchen problems that you’ll encounter.


1. Dishwasher Not Draining

If the water isn’t draining out of your dishwasher, you could have one (or more) of a few problems. You’ll need to check the filter, the drain hose, and the drain itself for any blockages. A malfunctioning dishwasher can be odorous, inconvenient, and expensive if not fixed quickly!

2. Broken Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals are one of the great modern comforts. But, they are also pretty prone to failure. A broken garbage disposal can mean blockage, foul smells, or worse. As a general rule, if you’ve pressed the reset button and your disposal still isn’t working, it may be time to call a professional.

3. Leaky Faucet

Drip, drip, drip — anyone with a leaky faucet knows how terrible that sound can be. Corroded valve seats, worn-out washers, or bad o-rings are all common causes of leaky faucets. There are a lot of reasons that faucets may leak, some more serious than others. But if left unchecked, a leaky faucet could cause water damage, increased utility bills, or just plain annoyance.

4. Cracked Backsplash and Tiling

Cracked tiling anywhere can be a sign of a much larger problem! Cracked tiling may mean serious foundation problems. If you find cracked tiles in your kitchen, it’s best to have a professional diagnose the extent of the problem. Call Now!

5. Range Hood Not Clearing Smoke

Your range hood not clearing smoke could mean a few things. You may have clogged ductwork or a faulty motor. No matter the cause, though, a malfunctioning range hood could lead to much larger problems with your ventilation if left unchecked.

6. Failing Subfloor

If part of your kitchen floor seems to be sunken in or declining from the rest of your floor, you may have a failing kitchen subfloor. The subfloor is one of the most important parts of your home — in essence, it supports your floor. If you have a damaged subfloor, it’s extremely important to get that taken care of…ASAP!

7. Warm Fridge or Freezer

Just like the structure of your home, your appliances can run into problems as well. A poorly operating appliance can ruin the food or run up your utility bills. If your fridge or freezer isn’t cold, you may not need to buy a new one. But, you will likely have to call a professional! 


8. Need New Molding

Crown molding can help give your kitchen cabinets the support they need. Modern, stylish molding can also increase your property value and eventual return on investment.

9. Limited Countertop Space

Limited counter space can be an aesthetic and functional problem in your kitchen. Not only does having extra space look great, but it provides more working surfaces for people while they are cooking. Without enough counter space, your kitchen can appear cluttered and messy. This can significantly lower your property value.

Try adding a kitchen island, or extending your countertops to fix this common problem.

10. Cracked Granite Countertops

Just like limited space can lower perceived value, damaged countertops can also hurt your kitchen. While some minor flaws are considered acceptable or even desirable, cracked granite poses a serious danger to the integrity of your kitchen counters. Some cracks in counters can be repaired with epoxy or filler, while more serious ones may need replacing.

11. Insufficient or Harsh Lighting

Insufficient or harsh lighting can significantly lower the overall value of your kitchen. Poor lighting can affect everything from the mood of your space to the way your food looks! We suggest ditching outdated, fluorescent tube lights and opting for a more modern option.


12. Poor Ventilation

Poor ventilation in your kitchen can lead to toxic emissions, stale smells, and stuffy air. These are all problematic, of course. In fact, according to a study funded by the Department of Energy, cooking with a gas stove as little as once a week can emit levels of pollutants that would be illegal outdoors. This is an often-overlooked problem that can devalue your property or even harm your overall living experience.

13. Insufficient Storage Space

The more you can do in your kitchen, the more equipment you will likely have. Unfortunately, this type of gear can be bulky and intrusive. If you don’t have enough storage space for your kitchen, you’ll end up with a cluttered, seemingly cramped kitchen. Installing new cabinets and appliance garages can help solve this problem.

14. Broken Water Pipes

Left unchecked, broken pipes can lead to catastrophic water damage. A broken pipe can destroy your foundation, walls, and ceiling. If you bust a pipe in your kitchen, it’s best to call a professional immediately!

15. Damaged Cabinets

Damaged cabinets can also devalue your property — because of both aesthetics and function. It’s important that your kitchen cabinetry works well and matches the rest of your decor.
