While some folks spent their time during quarantine drinking a lot of wine during Zoom happy hours, some were actually pretty productive, especially around the house.
A new survey finds:
- 81% of Millennial homeowners tackled some sort of home improvement project during quarantine.
- Overall, 65% of those who tackled a project did so to save money.
- Another 49% did it to keep themselves busy during lockdown.
- The average homeowner has attempted four different home improvement projects since March.
- Doing it themselves saved them over $160.
- The most common home improvement projects tackled include:
- Painting in the house (32%)
- Working on landscaping project outside (29%)
- Re-caulking (27%)
- Re-tiling kitchen or bathroom (24%)
- Plumbing (23%)
And apparently these projects didn’t get the better of a lot of people.
- 73% said they felt resilient enough to take on more, and 67% are looking forward to more projects in the future.
- 71% consider their home a “work in progress.”
- 50% plan on doing more DIY projects before the end of the year.
