5 Kitchen and Bath Features Buyers Want Most

According to the Profile of Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences compiled by the National Association of Realtors, buyers ranked the following features as most desired:

1. Separate shower enclosure in the master bath (36%)
2. Eat-in kitchen (31%)
3. High-end appliances (24%)
4. Granite countertops (23%)
5. Kitchen island (21%)

Comments included a preference for kitchen islands that are not a simple square shape, but are attractive while incorporating a lot of storage. Shower preferences include multiple shower heads and outside vents to cut down on mold buildup on grout and behind the walls. Stainless steel appliances are still alluring to buyers and customized appliances — like removable fronts and trivection ovens that simultaneously use thermal heat, convection and microwave cooking, are growing in popularity.
