When it comes to buying a house, the most sought-after feature is: a modern kitchen. Yes, even though the pandemic has made many of us reconsider the open floorplan and value multipurpose nooks (like cloffices and Narnia rooms) more than ever, the heart of the home remains.
For baby boomers, an up-to-date kitchen was no question; nearly half of those surveyed listed it as their absolute must-have. Meanwhile, Zillennials-those born between 1993 and 1998-were evenly split between having their dream kitchen and a massive backyard, and for Gen X, they'd love a Top Chef-caliber space, albeit preferably one that's solar-powered and made with sustainably sourced materials.
For millennials, though, a kitchen ranked near the bottom of the list of coveted home upgrades, which makes sense, considering they're also the generation that cooks the fewest meals at home, according to a 2021 Cinch Home Services survey. Owning an environmentally friendly abode-featuring things like a drip irrigation system, solar power, low-to-no-VOC paint and tankless hot water heaters-was way more appealing. (A distant second was having a smart house, loaded with every Ring doorbell and whistle.)
