Home owners looking to expand their kitchen will be pleased to know that a third of estate agents in the UK believe that the extension will increase the value of their property. Good news for those budding Jamie Oliver’s and Heston Blumenthal’s in the making.
A great way to expand the home and create a larger living area, kitchen extensions are now seen as a financially beneficial solution to increasing space in the home alongside extra bedrooms.
According to a new report by the National Association of Estate Agents, it was revealed that just under half (49 per cent) of estate agents surveyed agreed that an extra bedroom would increase the value of a property, whereas a third felt a kitchen extension would increase the value.
Kitchen extensions were ahead of the poll, that took into account conservatories and garages. With conservatories only taking 4 per cent of the vote, 3 per cent thought the addition of a garage would increase the value of a home. Converting an existing garage into a living space also only garnered 3 per cent of the estate agents votes.
Jan Hytch, President of the NAEA added: ‘Our research shows that bedrooms and kitchens are seen as the most sensible areas for expansion and this rings true when a property comes on to the market.’
