Skimp on your kitchen and you’re going to pay the price when you go to sell your home. There is no bigger impact on property resale than what is now known as the ‘heart of the home’.
Zesta Kitchens Marketing Manager, Joanne Walker said TV shows such as The Block are obsessed with kitchens because if they are not designed right, or products are not chosen correctly, too many things can go wrong, thus we get the drama which sells TV shows.
‘’A kitchen used to be galley style, hidden from the main parts of the house,’’ Ms Walker said.
She said it is hard to pinpoint when incorporating the kitchen to be the home's focal point began.
‘’It was in the 70’s that began to open up the kitchen space incorporating a dining table and the 80’s moved to opening the space again leading into a dining and living space, from there this trend has continued with the kitchen being a dominant feature in most modern Melbourne homes.’’
A well designed smart looking kitchen will always attract the eye of the buyer. This is an area of the home that is costly and if the kitchen is already renovated it will save on stress to renovate and future budget. According to the ABS Australians spend an average of 46% of their time in the kitchen, so naturally this is top of mind for a potential buyer come sale day.
