A new survey  by Terry’s Fabrics has found that more than a third of Brits aren’t happy with their homes, with a quarter of UK homeowners saying that it would cost more than £20,000 to turn their house into their ideal home.

However, 10% said it would be “impossible” to turn their house into their ideal home. The survey – which questioned 1,000 people – found that 39% of Brits think their kitchen is the room most in need of a change, while close to 10% want to change the bathroom.

More than 20% added that carpeted bathrooms is their most hated interior design feature, while 30% of Brits dislike woodchip and 24% can’t stand Artex walls and ceilings. Less than a quarter of those questioned said they were happy with their home as soon as they moved in.

More than half of UK homeowners admitted that they hadn’t paid for an independent survey report before buying their home due to the belief that it wasn’t worth the money, and that the basic mortgage survey had enough information.
