Does The Great British Bake Off Dish Up A Desire For A Brand New Kitchen?
08 Sep 2016

A modern, attractive and functional kitchen is a major selling point of a brand new property – and remains the heart of the home for new build buyers.

The kitchen has long been the hub of a home, either as a family focal point, a retreat for budding bakers, the entertaining zone or a single person’s stylish space.

And with The Great British Bake Off now back on our screens, more and more home hunters may be placing increased importance of having a fantastic kitchen as part of their search for a brand new home.

Among those ensuring the high quality of all the Linden Homes kitchens (as well as the rest of the home) is production manager Andy Devine, whose mum - Nancy Birthwhistle, from Barton on Humber - was crowned the winner for the 2014 GBBO!

According to research carried out by the NHBC (National House Building Council), twice as many people say they ‘love’ their kitchens than love their bedrooms!

A survey of 2,500 homeowners found that nearly one in 10 (216) said the feature they loved most about their new-build home was the kitchen, compared to just 95 people who cited the bedroom.

All Linden Homes East Yorkshire kitchens – and particularly those within the show homes – are designed to inspire and give the ‘wow’ factor to visitors and of course, potential buyers.

Your brand new kitchen will include; space saving cupboards and drawers, clever storage features, beautiful work surfaces, the opportunity to include the latest integrated kitchen appliances – and a wonderful space to share with family and friends.
