Study Reveals Most Popular Kitchen Activities
Eating meals and snacks is the most popular kitchen activity according to a recent survey conducted by the Research Institute of Cooking and Kitchen Intelligence (RICKI). About 65% of survey respondents listed this activity as their most popular.
In January 2012, RICKI released a “SmartChart” to the kitchen and bath trade that listed 18 of the most popular consumer kitchen activities. The chart was based on the results of a nationwide survey conducted last year by RICKI called the “Remodelers 360: How Americans Use Their Kitchen & Their Remodeling Experiences.”
The second most popular activity was planning meals at 62%, followed by taking medications and vitamins listed by 49%. Gathering or talking with family and friends was fourth on the list at 46%, followed by talking on the phone at 43%, and then feeding and caring for pets at 38%.
Based on this information, eat-in kitchens have become very desirable both for current lifestyle and resale value. Organizational areas for planning, sorting and storage are also very important for today’s homeowner.
