Many buyers that Realtors® Lawrence “Larry” & Sheila Agranoff work with on Long Island are looking for in their ideal kitchen when searching for a new home or condo. Kitchens rank very high on a home buyer’s priority list.
Here Are Four Popular Requests:
LARGE CENTER ISLANDS
Seems the kitchen island is getting larger. Our home buyers are looking for updated modern kitchens and the larger the island the better. The kitchen is an informal gathering place and having a large kitchen island keeps the conversations going.
OPEN FLOOR PLANS
Our buyers have been looking for Open Floor Plans where the kitchen has no walls and is open to the dining area/den/living room. As a matter of fact, most of the new construction we have been viewing are showing this Floor Plan as well. Along with this look, hardwood flooring or laminate-wood is a popular choice. It ‘s a nice flow from the adjoining rooms and multi-tasking spaces.
STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES
Stainless Steel appliances have been around for a long time now, and although they may be harder to keep clean, the trend is still popular. Black Stainless does not seem to have caught on as much as the original. Many newer styles now have smudge and fingerprint resistance too.
Although granite is still a popular choice, many of our buyers are looking for quartz counter-tops, and the less movement in the patterns, the better they like it. Quartz doesn’t have to be sealed every year like granite does, and they don’t scratch, chip, or burn. So, quartz is more stain resistant. Quartz is also more uniform so the variations is minimal for a cleaner look.
