Kitchens are important when selling a house and are often the most lived-in room of the home. Home & Garden experts at Houzz asked their readers for the top twenty must-haves for their kitchens. Not all kitchens will have these things certainly, but it is interesting to note what features are popular in case you are remodeling or even househunting.

Here are some of the Must-haves (we like “wish list” better)  items for the kitchen:

• Direct access to the outdoors
• Skylights or light tubes
• Under cabinet lighting
• Double bowl sinks
• Two dishwashers
• Built-in icemaker
• Appliance garage
• Recycling center
• Open shelves for cookbook storage
• Hidden outlet strips

It might be hard to find a kitchen with everything on the must-have or wish list! But if it is for sale in Wisconsin, you can find such a home at
