Kitchen Trends that are Drawing in Buyer Desire!

Before selling a home in Colorado Springs, it's important to do some research to see what needs to be done to get the most for you home. While your home may be immaculate, and you may not need to do anything to draw in buyers and get top-dollar offers, there may be some improvements you'd LIKE to make just to make your home more trendy. So, we're sharing with you some popular trends in one of the most important rooms in your home that buyers have surveyed matters most: the kitchen.  These trends are drawing in buyer desire and bringing in those offers. Take a look:


High Quality Storage Solutions
Lack of storage is a common problem in many kitchens, but creative solutions can help make the most of your existing space. Pull-out wastebaskets conceal kitchen refuse while providing easy access. Built-in wine racks can be incorporated into otherwise underused areas of the kitchen, such as corners and small gaps between cabinets and appliances. Another growing trend in kitchen design, walk-in pantries can be used to store everything from food to dishes to small appliances. Pantry organization systems range from simple wire shelves to sophisticated custom drawers and cabinetry.

Neutral Colors and Copper Accents
The main trend in color right now is towards grey and earthy tones with homeowners opting for simple, neutral colored kitchen designs. Shades of grey in cabinets and doors and copper colored handles, accessories and appliances are becoming more and more popular as people try to find alternatives to stainless steel and black to complement their cabinets.

Not Your Average Sink
Like kitchen cabinets, sinks are trending away from basic white or stainless steel. A colorful sink is a great way to pop in a small amount of color in a neutral kitchen or make it more of a focal point by using the same hue in the backsplash.

Add Bold Fixtures
Bold color isn't the only way to create excitement. Bold fixtures can give a great sense of depth perception and create drama in a room with a typical low ceiling. Matched with the cabinets, this look can really add some "WOW" to any kitchen.

Technology in the Kitchen
Technology is rapidly developing in the contemporary home leaving the kitchen as no exception. From sensor-activated lights that illuminate the kitchen only when it's in use to meat thermometers that alert your smartphone when dinner is done, kitchen technology is here to make your life easier.


Selling a Home in Colorado Springs
When it comes to adding value to your home, not all renovations or remodels are worth your time or money. But when it comes to the kitchen, there truly is value in making some upgrades.
