As social gathering spots for both family and friends, kitchens are indeed the heart of practically every home. It’s not only a spot to prepare meals—it’s a place to create memories.

But what are the must-haves and absolutes for homebuyers when looking for that perfect kitchen? Read this...

1. An efficient design

A kitchen doesn’t need to be massive to be magnificent. Open concepts and acres of counter space are certainly nice, but buyers want a kitchen that is equal parts fabulous and functional. Big or small, ample work surfaces, plenty of storage, and great seating areas are the hallmarks of a well-designed kitchen. And yes, the work triangle still matters

2. Smart (and smart-looking) appliances

Refrigerators that help create the grocery list, make coffee, or take a holiday when you do. Ranges, ovens, and microwaves that are friendly with food apps. All of these futuristic options are available today, and the houses that have connected future tech are the ones buyers will favor. 

3. Plenty of clever storage

Storage design in modern kitchens is less about hiding your tools and gadgets and more focused on keeping them in convenient, easy-to-reach spots. Buyers prefer deep drawers for pot storage, open shelving or glass-front cabinets, full-extension sliding shelves, and purposeful touches that maximize space

4. Abundant lighting

There are plenty of fun things you can do in the dark, but cooking isn’t one of them. Food is just as much a visual experience as it is one of taste, touch, and smell. Homebuyers love a well-lit kitchen. 

5. High-end touches

Homebuyers want to get a lot for their money, regardless of whether they’re buying a $200,000 house or one that costs $2 million. With the former, granite countertops, a coordinating backsplash, and under-cabinet lighting will convince a buyer they’ve hit the kitchen jackpot.
