Which room in the house is the most popular for renovations?

A survey by comparison site money.co.uk has revealed which are the most popular rooms in the home for renovations.

Way out in front were kitchens. In its survey, the comparison site looked at data from video app TikTok on which rooms people were renovating and found that kitchens were the most popular with more than 90 million views.

It said that one viral kitchen renovation video of a before-and-after Ikea makeover had racked up over one million views within 24 hours.

Bathrooms were the next most popular choice for refurbishments, clocking up 67.6 million views.

One three-part video series in TikTok of a bathroom renovation project by an Australia TikTok user got a total of 3.5m views.

Gardens were next with just under 22m views, then laundry rooms with 21.3m, with bedrooms at 11.7m being beaten by basements at 15.1m. Living rooms were well down the ranking with just under 320,000 views.

In total, #homerenovations attracted a total of 1.4 billion views on TikTok.

Commenting on the findings, Salman Haqqi, a personal finance expert at money.co.uk, said: “Renovating your home can be a really exciting time, as it’s an opportunity to create a fresh new space without the hassle of having to move. However, it’s important to remember that most standard home insurance policies will not cover major renovation works, because there is an increased chance of something going wrong and you needing to make a claim.

“Most renovation projects will need separate cover for damage to building and content, theft of your content and building materials and personal accidents. It’s always worth reaching out to your existing home insurance provider to see if they can cover the work before your start. If not, you should consider taking out a specialist home renovation insurance policy to cover you in case the worst were to happen.”
