Kitchens on my Mind

In all our house looking lately the first room I look at is the kitchen. In the Phoenix market right now many of them are missing at least the refrigerator and some of them the stove. I look at sink size and type as well. I want the counter tops to be in good shape and enough room on them so someone can work on food preparation easily.

After that I move on to bedrooms and closets. I like to see a nice size for the bedrooms. You know something big enough for actual furniture and enough closet space for the average person. Some bedrooms and closets are so small I really don't know how the builder thought they would ever work for anyone.

I also like to take a good look at the landscaping. If it has been neglected but basic layout and plantings are done that just need some care that is okay. Starting from a bare dirt yard can be expensive.

Back to kitchens.... I need to go pay some attention to my own.
Until next time,

  1. That sounds like a sensible approach. It's been so long since I looked at houses I don't know what I look at first, probably whatever room I entered into first, I suppose. My daughter put her house on the market. today. She's lived there twenty-one years, but she's moving. We're going to miss her as we have come to depend on here in several ways. I spent a couple of hours in the kitchen tonight after dinner. Some grease splattered and everything needed a good cleaning. That's where I shine. Interesting blog.

  2. That is smart to look at the kitchen first. It is too expensive and a lot of work to renovate that room! Closet space is super important. Good luck in your search.
