The Telegram (St. John’s) - Home Buyers' Guide - - OPEN HOUSE -

Home­own­ers are of­ten chal­lenged to find in­no­va­tive ways to give their homes a new look. Aes­thet­i­cally, kitchens are a good place to start, as they ex­pe­ri­ence high vol­umes of traf­fic and use and are of­ten in need of an up­date. But itʼs also a prac­ti­cal choice due to the kitchenʼs in­flu­ence on home re­sale value. Ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey of real es­tate agents, 88 per cent iden­ti­fied the kitchen as the room pri­mar­ily looked at by home­buy­ers. For those in­vest­ing in kitchen ren­o­va­tions, de­sign trends are call­ing for warm tones, use of bright colours and the in­clu­sion of lux­u­ri­ous items, to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful, func­tional and fam­ily-friendly space in which to en­ter­tain and en­joy.

With at-home en­ter­tain­ing grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity, kitchens are now be­com­ing more lav­ish and invit­ing for both guests and fam­i­lies to en­joy.
