The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) 2019 “What Home Buyers Really Want” survey revealed the features new and aspiring homeowners believe are essential in a house. The home features that landed on the top list are related to added storage, energy savings and improved outdoor spaces.
In this post, your local home improvement contractor, Empire State Builders & Contractors, talks about homebuyers’ most desired features for kitchens.
What Homebuyers Want in Kitchens
Nearly 4,000 home buyers participated in the NAHB survey. Most still prefer open floor plans for kitchens. Eighty-six percent of respondents want completely or partially opened kitchen and dining room.
More than half of participants included stainless steel appliances in their kitchen essentials. Fifty-seven percent prefer granite or natural stone kitchen countertops and 32 percent for white kitchen cabinetry. White on white and gray on white has also been discovered as an emerging trend for kitchens and baths.
