A recent Houzz study found that homeowners are more concerned with the color of their cabinets, storage and appliances. They are not so concerned with technology beyond having an Ipad and flat screen television in the kitchen. Most homeowners want a pull out trashcan, recycling bins, more storage and new appliances and kitchen cabinets.

The study also found depending on where you live dictates the type of appliances that are most important for the kitchen. Most homeowners could care less about having remote control access from their phone to control their oven or refrigerator. They would rather put their money in upgraded cabinets and get everything new.
