UK’s Kitchen Lust List

What makes a dream kitchen?

According to the latest research, the average Brit spends almost £4,000 a year updating their kitchen. Almost half the country has renovated their kitchen at least once since moving house.

When it comes to people’s dream kitchens, granite worktops, islands and glass box extensions are top of the list. It also seems like we love a mix of the old and new. Modern and traditional technologies are both highly sought after.

The dream kitchen wish list

  • Granite worktops
  • Built in appliances
  • A kitchen island
  • Boiling water tap
  • Glass box extensions

With one in five homeowners naming the kitchen as the heart of their home, we are more hungry than ever to give our kitchens a facelift. From splashing out on snazzy small appliances to investing in a new cabinetry, there are so many ways to add wow factor. The average household spend on kitchen upgrades is around £4,000 a year. Meanwhile 1 in 20 of us splurge more than £10,000 on getting their dream kitchen.

What are we doing to our kitchens?

Fitting useful practical touches, along with ways to add warmth and light and a mixture of modern and traditional fittings and technology are all at the top of our kitchen wish list.

In addition to granite worktops and built in appliances, other desirable luxuries include boiling water taps, a glass box extension and an AGA range.

For younger householders, kitchen renovation is all about adding light, with a quarter of polled 25 to 35-year-olds saying a glass box extension is the one thing they’d love to add to their kitchen.
