A new kitchen might do more for your home than you think.
A third of respondents in our U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trends Study of more than 2,700 U.S. homeowners using Houzz who are in the midst of, are planning or recently completed a kitchen renovation project, said that they are leading healthier lifestyles after their kitchen renovation.
Forty-one percent said they cook more meals at home (three-quarters cook five or more meals at home each week after renovating!) and 34% said they order less take out. Twenty-six percent of respondents also said they eat more fruits and vegetables after upgrading their kitchen.
Other lifestyle changes? Nearly half of respondents said they enjoy more family time (49%) and 40% say they entertain more. Perhaps one downside to having a more functional kitchen: 32% say they work from home more post-renovation.
