A recipe for success: smarten up your kitchen

Posted on Tuesday, September 12, 2017

It’s not just the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver who love spending time in the kitchen.

During the 12 years I’ve been an estate agent I’ve seen plenty of prospective buyers fall head over heels with a home after laying eyes on a well-designed, stylish kitchen. If a kitchen has the wow factor buyers often develop the ‘we want it now factor’.

Think about it though for a minute. We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, especially if it is spacious enough to include a breakfast /dining area. It’s often where we start the day, where families socialise and of course it’s a great spot to hang out at a party. It’s been said that life is often created in bedrooms but lived out in kitchens.

We’re often asked by vendors what’s the most important room from a buyer’s perspective. In my experience I’d have to say it’s usually the kitchen, it’s also the most clicked on image as far as online marketing is concerned, according to Rightmove.

If you are going to spend money getting your home ready to market, think carefully about how your kitchen looks, feels and if it needs upgrading. You’re welcome to call us for any advice or tips to enhance presentation for both photos & viewings too. 

On that note, whatever property questions you might have please don’t hesitate to ask for our expert and always honest opinion.
