Many people are looking to change their home this year

GetAgent has carried out a study amongst homeowners, looking at the changes they wish to make to their home in 2022. 69% of people who have bought a property in the last six months intend to carry out home improvements. 52% of respondents said they plan to undertake minor aesthetics around the house. 17% of property owners who responded are committed to a significant project, such as an extension.

What rooms are people most likely to change?

The rooms most likely to be focused on are:

  1. The kitchen, which was the leading option cited by homeowners when discussing makeover plans
  2. The garden was a popular choice when it comes to brightening up a property
  3. Bedrooms were a common option when it comes to freshening a home

The next selections were bathroom, living room and external spaces.

The most commonly cited home improvement task was painting a room, with installing new flooring a close second. Gardening and adding new furniture to the home was also mentioned as likely options. Also, many people intend to add new appliances to their home during the home improvement process.

How much are homeowners willing to spend on improving their home?

33% of respondents said they have a budget of between £500 and £1,000 for home improvements. 11% of homeowners have a budget of at least £20,000.

Colby Short is the founder and CEO of GetAgent.co.uk, and he has been quoted by Property Reporter as saying; “Home improvements are part and parcel of homeownership and January is often the time we sit down and think about what changes we want to make to our home. Whether you’re painting the bedroom or adding an extension, the key to success is planning and determination to follow through with those plans. There will always be some unexpected costs so budgeting a little extra is advised but at the very least you should get a full view of costs and times before undertaking any project to avoid months on end of living in a half-finished house.”

Colby Short concluded by saying; “It’s also important to note that the cost of materials has climbed substantially while the availability of tradespeople has dwindled due to high demand. So you might not be able to get your home improvements sorted as soon as you planned or for the cost you originally expected.”
