Quote from Matthew Hallet partner at Carter Jonas Estate Agency, The Sunday Times Home 30.10.11

"If the three most important aspects of a property are location, location, location, then the things that add most value are kitchens, kitchens, kitchens," "Family life centres on the kitchen and garden - open-plan kitchen/living rooms with islands and bi-fold doors are perfect for this" .
