According to a survey from email food kit delivery company, HelloFresh, 35 percent of millennial’s who own a home or are likely to purchase a home in the next few years said the kitchen is the most important room when it comes to the house hunt. But what features are trending? Here are some to look out for, in case you’re in the market to update your kitchen or are selling your home and hoping to attract more buyers.
Stone counter tops and tile backsplashes
While granite is still the front runner for counter tops, marble and quartz are also growing in popularity. Meanwhile, interest in tile backsplashes has been growing steadily.
Stainless Steel Appliances
Perhaps unsurprisingly stainless steel continues to be the most popular look for appliances and one of the most searched for keywords in relation to kitchen features.
Breakfast Bars and Islands
Sixty-four percent of respondents in the HelloFresh survey said that a big island is a must-have feature in their dream kitchen. Interest in breakfast bars has also been growing steadily.
While they may seem extravagant to some buyers, extra amenities such as wine fridges, double ovens, and outdoor kitchens are rising in popularity for those who like to entertain.
