When buyers are looking for a home, they generally have a wishlist of features they want or need the home to have. A certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms are usually at the top of the list out of necessity, but after that, they usually have a few kitchen features they’re looking for. 

Let’s take a look at the highly coveted kitchen features that buyers are looking for.

Center Island

Kitchen islands are usually the focal point of any kitchen because they’re one of the first features you see when you walk in. Buyers love being able to imagine entertaining family and friends in their kitchens, and islands are a huge help when entertaining. They provide additional counter space and serve as a great place to display food and drinks.

When it comes to the countertop of the island, buyers are usually looking for granite and quartz, both of which are very affordable.

Open Floor Plan

Going along with the idea of entertaining, many buyers are looking for a kitchen that opens to a living area. The open floor plan makes entertaining so easy because you can cook in the kitchen and still converse with guests in the living room. In addition, having a kitchen that connects to the dining room AND the living room is an added bonus. 

Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appliances are basically a must-have for all buyers. If they walk into a home and see black or white appliances, it’s an immediate con on their pros and cons list. They look good in every kitchen, and oftentimes, you can find a bundle sale to replace all of your appliances to stainless steel appliances for a reasonable price. 

Large Single Sink

Double sinks have become a thing of the past for most buyers because they want a sink that will fit everything. Most double sinks can’t fit large pots and pans, so deep single sinks have become an important feature for buyers. 

Storage Space

Last, but certainly not least, buyers are looking for kitchen storage space. They want to make sure all their kitchenware, small appliances, and food will have a spot in the kitchen so things like ample cabinet space, a pantry, or lazy susans are items they look for.

Kitchens sell homes, so it’s important to make sure yours has some of these features if you’re looking to sell. If you need any suggestions or have questions, feel free to reach out to Bloom Realty! We would be happy to help!
