Which room in your home is the best value for money?

Published in Magazine on 10 January 2022 by our Marketing Team

Whilst it might be the furthest thing from your mind right now, making home improvements is the perfect way to spend all that extra time indoors.

 
In order for you to know where to concentrate your energy, we’ve outlined the rooms considered ‘best value’.
 
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the best-valued room has been revealed as the master bedroom, where we spend an average of 2,482 hours a year.
 
A recent study from comparethemarket.com has shown that Brits spend £308.51 each year on renovating the main bedroom, which makes sense when we consider just how much the room is used.
 
The average person spends about 26 years sleeping in their life, which equates to 9,490 days. We also spend seven years trying to get to sleep, totalling 33 years or 12,045 days spent in bed!
 
With the pandemic forcing more of us than ever to work from home, it is no surprise that the home office follows the bedroom for the room most used within our households.
 
It seems we enjoy improving our culinary skills as well as our homes, with Brits spending just under 800 hours a year in the kitchen. With many people adding renovations to their New Year’s resolutions list, it is important to know which room to do first.
 
If you are thinking of making changes to improve the value of your property, it is best to start with the kitchen or bathroom.
 
When buyers view a property, nothing grabs their attention more than a stunning kitchen or a modern bathroom. These improvements don’t have to break the bank to go a long way in impressing prospective owners.
 
If you’re improving your house for your own purposes only, it’s best to start with the room you would notice changes in the most.
