Day 22 of 30 Days & 30 Ways to Give Your Home Some Love – Home Improvement Statistics with the National Kitchen & Bath Association
If you are a homeowner, you have likely been tasked with a home improvement project or two that has been above your pay grade. So it’s not surprising to learn that several people end up outsourcing these responsibilities to industry professionals. We spoke with the National Kitchen & Bath Association to find out how many kitchen fixes different age groups contracted out to a remodeler rather than tackling themselves.
82% babyboomers (generally those born from 1946-1965)
68% generation x (generally those born from 1965 to around 1980)
65% mature millenials (those 25 to 37 years old born in 1992-1980)
This report counts every kitchen job, no matter how small. Based on this information, we can see a clear trend of younger generations relying on themselves for kitchen fixes while older generations are happy to leave the work to the professionals. What are your thoughts on this trend? Do you think younger generations have more resources and time to do these projects or do they simply lack the money to hire a contractor? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
