It’s not just the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver who love spending time in the kitchen.

During the twenty plus years that I’ve been an Estate Agent I’ve seen plenty of prospective buyers fall head over heels with a home after laying eyes on a well-designed, stylish kitchen.

If a kitchen has the ‘wow’ factor, buyers often develop the ‘we want it now factor’.

If you think about it carefully though, most of us spend a lot of time in our kitchens, especially if it is spacious enough to include a breakfast /dining area.

It’s often where we start the day, where families socialise and, of course, it’s a great spot to hang out at a party. I’ve heard it said that life is created in bedrooms but lived out in kitchens!

At ‘Iles & Jenkin’ we’re often asked by potential vendors ‘what’s the most important room from a buyer’s perspective’? In our experience we’d have to say that it’s usually the kitchen.

So, if you are going to spend money getting your home ready to put it on the market, please think carefully about how your kitchen looks, feels and if it needs upgrading?

And if you need some help deciding, please give us a call. Whatever property questions you might have, we’re always happy to help and most importantly, we’ll always give you our expert, honest advice.

Thanks for reading.
