What buyers want: big closets, white kitchens…and more

by | Jan 9, 2017 | Blog

Like fashion, home design preferences are in constant flux. Over the years, white appliances have given way to stainless steel, carpet has been replaced with wood floors, Formica counters have lost out to granite.

What do buyers look for in a home today? Builder magazine recently surveyed real estate professionals about the design elements their clients are requesting. These are the preferred elements:

Open layouts
Neutral color schemes
Multigenerational floor plans
First-floor master suites
No dining rooms
White kitchens
Extra-large garages
Big closets
Oversized master bathrooms
Finished basements with 9-foot high ceilings
Sliding barn doors
