The Kitchen – The Heart of your Home

Posted on Tuesday, January 13, 2015


During the 30 years I’ve been an estate agent I’ve seen plenty of prospective buyers fall head over heels with a home once their eyes took in a well designed, stylish kitchen.

Think about it 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 during 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.

If you are going to spend money getting your home ready to go to market think carefully about how your kitchen looks, feels and if it needs upgrading.

It will often add value to your property, but even more importantly it can increase the quality of your life.
