As realtors in the Nashville area we have the unique experience of hearing potential homeowners talk about features they like or dislike in the homes for sale. Naturally, some of the most common comments relate to location of the real estate property or listing price. However, we also see first hand which trends are most coveted in today’s houses, causing certain homes to sell more quickly than others. For years now open floor plans have been popular, and many people have renovated homes to reflect this preference. Recently, we’ve noticed that this home trend is further expanding to open kitchens.
Homeowners love their open kitchens because it allows them to multitask with cooking and entertaining (or keeping a watchful eye on the kids). Over the past couple of decades, lifestyles have grown busier and family meals less formal, all of which add to the immense appeal of the open kitchen.
This is not a trend disappearing anytime soon either. Ask most Nashville homeowners about their favorite room and where people are most likely to gather, and you guessed it – it’s the kitchen.
