Can a full-blown kitchen redo make you healthier? The answer, according to a recent survey, is yes.

Thirty-three percent of those surveyed by Houzz say they live a healthier lifestyle now that their kitchen has been renovated, with 76 percent cooking five or more meals at home each week—generally a healthier habit than dining out—and 34 percent eating takeout less as a result.

“With the growing trend of homeowners choosing to stay in their home for the long-term, the return on investment from a kitchen remodel is less tangible, measured in healthier habits and more face-time with family and friends instead of dollars,” said Nino Sitchinava, principal economist at Houzz, in a statement on the survey. The survey also explored the factors that inform the remodel.

The most popular features in kitchens overall include:

  • Custom Cabinets
  • Gray Walls
  • Island
  • Marble
  • Open Floor Plan (Great Room)
  • Pantry Cabinet
  • Stainless Steel Appliances
  • White Cabinets
  • White Countertop
  • Wood Flooring

In terms of style, however, generational divides exist, according to the survey. Though a contemporary style is most in-demand across the board (dethroning transitional), millennials are more likely to favor a farmhouse or modern look, while baby boomers are more likely to prefer a traditional aesthetic.

In addition, homeowners are spending more renovating their kitchens. Twenty percent of those surveyed spent between $50,000 and $100,000 on a kitchen redo in 2016; 9 percent spent more than $100,000. Hey—you can’t put a price on health!
