A New Home With A Kitchen You Don’t Need To Renovate Is A Recipe For Happiness
11 Nov 2020

For many of us, the kitchen is the hub of the home, whether as a family dining area or a happy space to nurture a lockdown love of baking.For many of us, the kitchen is the hub of the home, whether as a family dining area or a happy space to nurture a lockdown love of baking.

And with the Great British Bake Off back on our screens, it is obviously the place to put all those signature bakes and show-stoppers into practice!

Whatever your culinary skills or requirements from a family kitchen, new research* shows that the kitchen is the most expensive room in the house to renovate, with people spending an average of £5,219.

In fact, the study into UK spending reveals that York is the city in the top spot when it comes to splashing out on overall home renovations; at a whopping £49,000!

So, if a second-hand kitchen with out-of-date cupboards and impractical layout puts you off buying a pre-owned property, Vistry Yorkshire (part of Vistry Group) has plenty of new homes where the kitchen is a star attraction, with brand-new appliances, carefully thought out layout, functionality and space.

Regional sales manager Melanie Parker said: “For many people, the kitchen remains the hub of the home – a place to relax, entertain and spend time with the family. Visitors to our show homes are immediately excited to see the kitchen – which always delivers wow factor.

“We know how important a kitchen can be, from those in our stylish open-plan smaller properties right up to those in our family-friendly five-bedroom homes. As well as being attractive, a kitchen needs to be practical, functional and meet the demands of the buyer, and that’s where clever storage ideas, which some older properties may not have, come in to play.

“We believe our kitchens tick all these boxes and more, and that our interior designers do a brilliant job in offering some inspiration to our buyers with all those added little touches.”

A brand-new kitchen will turn up the heat on second-hand rivals when it comes to home hunting.

The latest energy-saving fitted appliances often come as standard or can be purchased as optional extras, with other benefits:

  • Depending on the build stage at the time you reserve your home, there may be an option to select your preferred kitchen units and work surfaces (from a selected range)
  • A brand-new fitted oven and hob means reliability.
  • Creating space is a major consideration when designing a new kitchen.
  • Unlike a second-hand kitchen, you won’t have to live with someone else’s taste in units or worktops.
  • Careful consideration is also taken into layout and floor space.
  • New designs can often include a number of clever storage and space-saving extras.
  • Above all, there is no work to be done – simply move in and enjoy your new kitchen.
