“A superb kitchen will make the difference between selling a property and it languishing on the market,” said Carol Peett, Managing Director, West Wales Property Finders.
However, Peett believes that clever design and clean lines and features are more important than the actual cost of the kitchen look top end.”
She said: “Add clever touches like an instant hot water tap, pop up electrical points for charging Ipads and phones, an under-counter compost bin so you can peel vegetables on the surface and push the peelings straight into it and these immediately make a kitchen”
Peett insists that light and views also help sell a kitchen and so, where possible, bi-fold doors into the garden should be installed to bring the garden into the house.
“If well designed using these money saving methods you can add at least double the outlay of the kitchen on the price of the house but, more importantly, your house will sell quickly,” Peett added.
