A recent survey from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) called “What Home Buyers Really Want” revealed insight regarding home buyers and their kitchen preferences. In today’s blog post, Kitchen and bathroom remodeling contractor Gaspard Construction discusses the kitchen features that attract home buyers.
Preference on Open Floor Kitchens
In the NAHB report, 86% of the home buyers look for kitchens and dining rooms that are completely or partially open. This goes to show that they are seeking bright, inviting spaces for entertaining, which means the majority of shoppers are drawn towards floor plans that offer the least wall-to-square-foot ratio.
Kitchen remodeling contractors like us are well aware of the benefits open floor kitchen plans can provide home buyers. For one, the absence of walls helps expand the areas that can be reached by natural light. The brighter the kitchen is, the more spacious it feels. More importantly, an open floor plan enhances interaction with guests without missing out on food preparation.
Preference on Various Kitchen Finishes
The same report also revealed the top kitchen finishes. These are stainless steel appliances (67%), granite or natural stone kitchen countertops (57%) and white kitchen cabinetry (32%). With these elements present, the kitchen won’t look outdated, won’t be as ornate and can blend well with any color.
Whether you are looking to put your home up for sale or just want to raise its value, it is important that you schedule a consultation with your local remodeling contractor. That way, you can gain valuable insight into what works for you if you decide to pursue a kitchen remodel in the future.
