Brits Spend Three Years of Their Life in the Kitchen

April 21, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
The kitchen is the one room of a house which services the most needs and is fundamentally the most important. Families cook in the room, eat in there and it is also the living space to wash the pots; so it is no surprise to hear that Brits spend a lot of time in there.

According to a recent survey, Britons spend three whole years of their life in the kitchen cooking which equates to 1,096 days and 26,260 hours slaving over a hot stove. AGA Cookshop, who commissioned the study, found that adults spend on average 72 minutes a day cooking and casseroles, curries and pies were revealed as popular amateur dishes.

Findings showed that four out of 10 respondents had a 'signature meal' and 50% had received secret family recipes which had been passed down generations. What is more, 75% confessed that they will keep the traditional dishes going and pass the recipes on to their own children; and 90% have taught their children how to cook.

The survey of 30,000 adults in the UK also discovered that six out of 10 people believe that they are better cooks than their own mum and only 15% think their mother is a better chef.

The results are encouraging to learn that as a nation of food lovers, many Brits are cooking for pleasure not as a chore and with so much time being spent rustling up dishes to eat, it is important that you enjoy the décor of the kitchen.

Simple furnishings can update the room to make it an enjoyable living space including co-ordinating appliances, chic tableware, wall art, accessories and glass splashbacks for kitchens. is the stylish alternative so tear off those tiles, peel off the paper, be different and add a splash of colour in your kitchen. If three years of your lifetime is spent in the room, it is a worthwhile investment to make the room fun and pleasant to live in!
