Now that we are a month into 2020, (seriously, where DID January go?) here is a short list of some of the popular kitchen features that homebuyers are looking for.
Quartz has become very popular in the last few years, as people love the coloration of gray on white. The only issue to be mindful of is that it is not heat resistant (like granite, marble, or natural stone).
Wood flooring is a strong trend, but there are also great products that look like wood without the maintenance. There are gorgeous wood-look tile planks available, as well as luxury vinyl planking that is textured and colored to look like natural wood.
Stainless steel appliances have been popular for quite some time, and there are more options like black stainless and slate that are showing up in higher end homes.
Soft close cabinets are very popular – almost everyone we’ve had through our open houses in the past year has checked to see if the cabinets are soft-close.
If you have the ability to add it, a gas range is the upgrade we are asked about the most. Adding a gas line can be challenging depending on where gas is located in your house.
We have seen the subway tile trend expand a bit – larger tiles (think 4″ x 12″) or smaller tiles set in a herringbone or chevron pattern have been very popular here in Western Colorado.
