Another reason that renovations would no longer be able to be put off is for damage to a countertop in which a sink could no longer be held. If the counter is gone it really doesn't make sense not to go forward with the renovation process.
Going into a kitchen remodel it is best to be fully aware. Kitchen renovations are expensive, time-consuming, and a large disruption to normal life.
