Some unusual or uncommon home features are not only attracting buyers but also encouraging them to pay more for those features. In a study for Angi, formerly Angie’s List, researchers combed through sold listings to identify common or trending home features and determine whether a price premium could be attached to some amenities.

In the kitchen, buyers may appreciate a pot filler faucet over the cooktop. Angi researchers said that feature alone could lead to a 3.2% price premium.

Other home features that could make a big difference: pendant lighting (2.66% price premium); under-cabinet lighting (2.48%); double-sink vanity (2.35%); barn door (2.32%); butcher block (2.26%); quartz countertops (2.26%); and oversized windows (2.23%).

The following chart breaks down the most-valued home features by room.
