A Walk-in Pantry is the Most Wanted Kitchen Feature

A walk-in pantry is the most wanted kitchen feature, with 83 percent of home buyers reporting it is an essential/must have (32 percent) or desirable item (51 percent). This data comes from NAHB’s recently released report, What Home Buyers Really Want (2019 Edition), which is based on a survey that asks recent and prospective home buyers (people who bought homes in the previous three years or are planning to do so in the next three years) about the features they want in their home and community, including in the kitchen.

To ascertain a better understanding of the most sought-after home and community features, NAHB asked home buyers to rate a comprehensive list using a four-tier scale of essential/must have, desirable, indifferent, or do not want. Figure 1 shows the kitchen features with the highest total combination of essential/must have and desirable shares.
