Kitchens updated every 13 years, finds Houzz trend report

The average homeowner in the UK and Ireland updates their kitchen every 13 years, according to Houzz.co.uk’s UK and Ireland Kitchen Trends Report.

The research, which included a survey of more than 2,800 UK and Irish homeowners on Houzz, also found that those planning to re-do their kitchens this year are planning to ‘go big’, with 49% investing in substantial upgrades and more than a fifth adding an extension.

Nearly half of homeowners – 48% – were budgeting £5k to £20k for their project, while 21% were estimating spending £21k to £40k and 1% budget in excess of £100,000.

Space was also key – with 64% of those working on a kitchen project, or planning one in the next year, said they were looking to increase the square footage of their space.
