Survey reveals increased kitchen remodel budget and dirty dish data
A new survey by the Delta Faucet brand revealed that U.S. homeowners feel especially drawn to their kitchens. They’re willing to dish out thousands of dollars to update this area of the home. However, despite their willingness to transform this space, homeowners dread nearing the sink area where the dish duties lie.
• Increased Investment. When it comes to remodeling the entire kitchen, 1 in 3 (33%) U.S. homeowners would be willing to spend $20,000 or more — a 43% increase in homeowners from 2017.
• Daily dish duty. Exactly 1 in 2 (50%) U.S. homeowners spend at least 15 minutes every day rinsing and cleaning their drinkware, essentially dedicating 38 days to the task over the next decade of their life!
• Festering food-stuff. On average, U.S. homeowners or someone in their household have let dishes pile up for three days before washing them.
• A lot on their plates. Three in 5 (63%) U.S. homeowners have had something bad happen from waiting too long to do the dishes: 56% of which said they’ve been unable to remove caked on food from dishes and half (50%) admitted their dishes have emitted an odor that stunk up the kitchen.
The Delta Glass Rinser makes it easy to rinse drinkware by thoroughly rinsing residue in seconds, with high-pressure water jets that reach where a person can’t. Its sleek, low-profile design coordinates with any faucet and it can be easily installed in an empty countertop hole, such as those used for soap dispensers and sink sprayers.
