SAY HELLO TO YOUR NEW ‘LIVING ROOM’
If you look at new build homes, they are now designed with kitchens predominantly as living spaces to better accommodate friends and family with open areas for entertaining.
For older properties, many are opening up spaces and bringing the dining room area into the kitchen space, or adding on extensions to create the ideal open-plan space. This of course follows the new build trend complimenting new lifestyle choices and helping property values for resale purposes.
If you speak to any estate agents, property resale depends considerably on the kitchen. Location, flow and functionality are key. Property buyers, when considering an older home with a smaller kitchen, often immediately look into renovation possibilities that may include a remodel, expansion, or removing walls to create a more contemporary, open plan feel.
