Find a Colorado Home with Your Dream Kitchen

November 2, 2016

For many prospective homeowners, the kitchen is an important factor when looking to buy a new home. What do you want most from your kitchen? When considering the Colorado real estate market, speak to your realtor about your kitchen preferences to help narrow down your search to only the most ideal home for your desires.

Kitchen for Two
- Not everyone loves to cook. If you’re one of those people, you may not want an elaborate kitchen. A kitchen with enough room for a fridge, a single stove, and a microwave, along with moderate counter space, may be just what you’re looking for. A nice, cozy kitchen that is perfect for one chef and not much else could be your idea of the perfect kitchen. Simple wood cabinetry will be perfect for your needs, as will a basic stainless steel fridge and an easy to use stove. Your ideal kitchen could be complemented by a small bar, perfect for two or three people to dine in the kitchen without needing an elaborate dining room. If you dislike the idea of a bar, perhaps enough space for a small kitchen table as opposed to a full dining table would be ideal.
Large Kitchen - If you have a large family, you will want a lot of cabinet space, as well as plenty of room in the kitchen for cooking large meals. A stovetop with six burners instead of four will likely be advantageous to you. A gas oven with multiple racks as well as a smaller, convection oven will make cooking for a large family a breeze, even during the holidays. You will likely also want a fridge with two doors, with a freezer or additional fridge space in drawers beneath the primary part of the fridge - consider a fridge like this one by Samsung. Pantries with pull-out drawers will be great for making sure snacks for the whole family are within reach. To store your pots and pans, you may want large cabinets, or you may want a kitchen with a hanging pots and pans holder above the stove.

Other Kitchen Considerations
- There is more to consider about your kitchen than the size, utilities, and cabinetry. For instance, would you prefer a gas or electric stove? Do you want a big window in your kitchen to let light in? Are you craving a kitchen with marble countertops, or do you prefer a more rustic look? Would you prefer a bright kitchen, or a black and white kitchen? Are you hoping you get a spice rack included in one of your cabinets? How much work are you willing to put into renovating your kitchen? Is having the already perfect kitchen your plan, or would you like one that you can tweak to your liking?
