I am currently planning renovations for my kitchen which is very small and lacking in work surfaces.
DH and I have agreed on a design that works for us, but I am wondering if it will be a turn off if we were to sell.
All available space will be cupboards with kitchen benches on top and then overhead storage as well. No in wall section for fridge or freezer.
We will have them both out in our back room which is about a metre from the kitchen.
Would this be an issue for you when looking at houses?
me too - huge issue, I cook a lot, and need the fridge right there. A Chest or secondary freezer can be somewhere else, but the fridge should be in the kitchen. I would look at some kitchen planning websites before making any definite decisions. The storage should be in another room perhaps? For things you dont use often, or have to move between all the time. eg, your electric appliances, like mixers and stuff.
I would view it as I would have to spend money on the kitchen, no matter how new it was, and not bother.
