1. The layout
The layout of your kitchen is very important. Every person uses that space differently, so when you are exploring a potential home to purchase, make sure to envision yourself in the kitchen and check if the flow of the layout works for you. Walk around and make sure you like where everything is located. Bring a measuring tape and make sure you check if the kitchen has enough room for you to be able to move freely.
2. The condition
Make sure to examine all the cabinets and make sure they are in good condition. To do this, check the doors, drawers, and hinging. Make sure that the doors are not falling off the hinges, and that there is no wear and tear. Open and close all the doors and cabinets to see if they function properly. Remember to take pictures of everything that might need wok.
You should also make sure that the appliances are in good shape. If you are doubting, try them out.Turn them on and see how they run.
When you tour the overall kitchen, make sure to keep an eye out for the amount of storage. Think about all the things you need stored in your kitchen, and check if the kitchen you are visiting meets those standards. Take pictures of the entire space. Sometimes, even if there is not enough storage some can be installed. However, it is important to know this in advance in order to know what you are working with!
