Kitchens are seen as the centrepiece of the home, where we do everything from socialising and cooking, to watching television and completing work. Add in all of the extra work involved in crafted and installing a kitchen and you start to understand why we give this room the most attention. Off course, you find the kettle in the kitchen, and whatever room you're working on, the kettle is one of the most important tools of any tradesperson or DIYer!
Around 63% of the 1,788 people surveyed also said that the kitchen is the room they spend the most money on when renovating or decorating. Just 8% of homeowners said that the bathroom was their biggest renovation expense.
The survey also found that 91% of UK households within the £70,000-£80,000 salary bracket redecorate yearly.
Just over 50% of those surveyed said that they would do DIY tasks themselves, whereas 27% said they would hire someone and 22% said their partner would do the work.
Interestingly, the largest age bracket that stated they would take on DIY tasks themselves was those aged 18-24, with 95% of homeowners in that bracket stating they would get involved in DIY tasks. As people get older, busier and richer, they are much more likely to hire someone to do the job.
