Ask any real estate agent how the market is and you’re almost sure to get the same answer: “Great!”

Did you know that we spend more than 300 hours per year in our kitchens?

When you're looking for a new home (or just dreaming about one), the kitchen can be the room that makes the biggest impact. If a kitchen has outdated appliances, a weird layout, or is noticeable cramped, you definitely notice it.

Maybe the commute is awful, your neighbors live to find new ways to annoy you, or the “fixer upper” kitchen is still an avocado-colored nightmare.

That’s because parting with a home falls into the “major life change” category. Cue the second-guessing, polling all friends and family for opinions, obsessive list-making and mentally running through all scenarios as soon as your head hits the pillow. If you feel like this describes how you feel
