When looking into Denver real estate marketing, the main selling points tend to be the bedrooms, yard, or the kitchen. The kitchen is a great gathering spot & easy for entertaining. It continues to be a top spot for renovations and high end technology trends.
Kitchen technology and design continues to evolve and adapt to today’s busy lifestyles. Kitchen connectivity is a trend that will become more mainstream with the arrival of each new appliance. Smart appliances will get smarter. And, how they assist with productivity, efficiency and ease of use will remain a focus throughout the home. Integrating computing into the kitchen will affect design and counter use. This may also heighten the potential for effective real estate marketing, as the kitchen is a desirable area of the home.One such technology trend is a touchless faucets. These new faucets only require a wave of the hand to activate. This helps to keep your kitchen surfaces clean and germ free. Imagine your favorite online recipe website projected up through your glass countertop—no more sticky fingers turning paper pages! Use of Ipads and SmartHome devices, such as an Alexa, have also become popular in the kitchen.
In Colorado, bold colors, as well as a sleek and clean design have been a hot trend. Color, combined with texture and glass tile backsplashes, will offer chefs and snackers alike gorgeous, yet functional kitchen spaces. All the while, these kitchens will allow for a user-specific experience with each kitchen offering a customized cooking experience. Perhaps someday soon, your fridge or pantry will request grocery items that need to be replenished from an online delivery service.
Will our fridge soon know that the ketchup is almost empty and there is only one left in the pantry? When will expiration dates on food be monitored by our refrigerator, keeping us safe by alerting us of food past its prime? Given that refrigerators already have computer systems and screens in them, this really isn’t a huge leap. This technology may not be present now. However, we can only imagine what kind of potential this would offer in the process of advertising real estate listings.
There really is no limit to how our kitchens will help us in the future. As people have less time to plan, prepare and create in the kitchen, the minutia of kitchen management will lean heavily on technology. So, we can focus the time we spend in the kitchen on the parts of cooking (and eating) we truly enjoy.
No matter the amount of technology you have, the kitchen continues to be a focal point of your home. This is a great space to renovate for potential increase in resale value of your home. As Denver metro realtors, look forward to what the future has to offer in high tech kitchens and Denver real estate marketing potential. Call Corken + Company to find your dream home today!
