Let’s take you room by room…

In the kitchen, it's the floor that won the most views by some distance, with cabinets coming in second place, and sink in third.  Surprisingly, the hob attracted the least attention, less than even the pots, pans and plants.

In the living room, coffee tables, rugs and decorative cushions pulled in the most views. No surprise that the television was bottom of the list - we must watch that enough already!
In the home office, no surprise that we all want a comfortable chair with the amount of time some of us spent working from home over the last 18 months and this topped the list by some distance. Not just in this room but the most looked at item in the whole house! This was the only room that wall art seems to have made the shortlist of popularity. 

In the bathroom, it was the mirror that attracted the most attention. Worth knowing If you're looking for quick fix to spruce up your bathroom, a new mirror might just be what you and they are looking for!
