Homeowner Wish List: Better Kitchens and Outdoor Spaces
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way some homeowners wanted to use their kitchen and yards, according to a survey of 1,000 real estate agents by HomeLight.
When homeowners tried to spruce up their outdoor spaces, the number one item was a fire pit, followed by privacy fences or shrubs or cabana curtains, then a full outdoor kitchen, a shady area and screened in spaces. Fire pits were most popular in the Midwest and Northeast regions.
The most popular kitchen projects: kitchen islands, walk-in pantries, more drawer and cabinet storage, as well as attractive backsplashes. Midwestern real estate professionals said smart appliances were popular, too.
