What Buyers Want Pt. IV – Cozy Comfort

Interior features that Boston says buyers are asking for include “pocket libraries” and other small, intimate tucked-away spaces that provide privacy and help break up the big, open floor plans of today’s most popular homes. “These cozy spaces are something we’re seeing a lot more interest in,” says Boston. “People still want open floor plans, but they want them broken up a bit to give the home a more intimate, cozy feel.”

Boston is also seeing more buyers turning away from granite countertops in favor of other options. “Granite is a great material, but it’s a little tired,” she says. “For the first time, I’m seeing people seeking out alternative materials like Carrera marble, which is great for bathrooms and kitchen wall splashes, stone composites and even laminates with interesting patterns.”
