Appliances – Gas Range, Double Oven

Whether you meal prep on the weekend or are whipping up dinners daily, the house chef wants appliances to make his or her job easier says LCT Realtor Amy Pappas.

A gas range is a very popular option which makes the cooking process faster and more even. The metal grates are more durable and gas is usually cheaper than electric,” Amy said. “If your home has access to gas, it is a great option, and, usually works even when there is an electrical outrage with a simple match.”

The LCT Team’s recent Instagram poll found 73% of people wanted a double oven. Be sure you check out our #MondayPolls here.

Kitchen Open Floor Plan

No one wants to be isolated in the kitchen while the party happens in another room says LCT Team Realtor Michelle Chrest.

“A kitchen which opens to the family room is always a popular feature. The entire area doesn’t have to be open but having a space that allows guests or kids to hang nearby without being under foot is a great feature,” Michelle said.

Good Lighting

Lighting is important to create the perfect kitchen. A kitchen with can lights, pretty pendants or a statement light fixture all work together to provide great lighting options, says LCT Team Realtor Megan Jones.

“You really want options, from morning coffee chats with lower lighting, to needing a bright space on a winter night of home work or cooking,” Megan explained. “And under count lighting is always a nice addition.”
