Why your Kitchen is the Most Important Feature of your Home

Whether you're planning on building your first home, are looking on the market for a new house or are thinking of selling your own, there is one feature that always makes a home stand out from the rest – the kitchen. In all honesty, home buyers and renters generally survey the kitchen and the bathroom before making any decisions, placing these two area of a house as the most important. So if we're just there to make food and do the dishes, why is the kitchen one of the most important features of your home?

Time Well Spent

As previously mentioned, most home owners do spend quite a great deal of time in the kitchen, particularly if you have a family – or just love cooking! Whether you're baking cupcakes or doing the dishes, many families spend an adequate amount of time in their kitchen each day. Because of this, many home owners find that it is important to have a kitchen that works in their favour, with a modern oven and cooktop, along with adequate bench space and room for a big pantry. If you're going to spend the majority of your time in one room of the house, it's important that you're comfortable in your surroundings.

Structure & Plumbing

We mentioned before that the bathroom, along with the kitchen, are two of the most prominent features of a home. While the looks and storage area are an important factor when choosing the right design for you, many home owners want a good kitchen, simply because the expense of renovating plumbing can sky rocket and leave you way over budget when buying your new home. Building a new home is a great way to ensure that the plumbing is up to scratch, and with a number of reputable home builders available, first home owners can rest at ease.

Family Value & Entertaining

Whether you have a big family or a small one, everyone will tell you that some of their fondest memories of growing up were in the kitchen, watching their mum dancing as she cooked or learning to make your first cake. With this in mind, the kitchen can be one of the best assets to your home, as it brings many memories and warmth to a structure. For those who like to entertain guests with dinner parties, a workable kitchen is very important and also a stylish one at that, with room for a dishwasher for easy cleaning and big bench spaces for serving.
Whether you're a traditional family person who wants to feel at home in their new kitchen or are looking for value for money and wouldn't consider renovating a plumbing job, it is easy to see why the kitchen is one of the most important attributes to your home.
