We’ve all heard the saying “the kitchen is the heart of the home” – and there’s really no disputing it. With a warm ambiance (figuratively and literally), the kitchen has become the ultimate hub for residents to gather and unwind while cooking up and enjoying a delicious meal.

That feel-good feeling, in addition to visual beauty, explains why kitchens play such a huge role in real estate. According to realtor.com, “The kitchen has become the most obsessed-about and downright valuable room in real estate. Homes that include a ‘killer kitchen’ or ‘luxury kitchen,’ as described by the sellers, sell 8% faster than similar-sized homes in the same ZIP code.”

With that in mind, we decided to look around Utah to see what sizzling kitchens are heating up the local real estate market. So take out your spatula, grab your apron and get ready for a healthy serving of gourmet kitchens.
