A new survey has revealed the top ten most common home improvements being carried out in the UK at the moment. The most popular one - installing a new kitchen - has been carried out by 42% of people in the last three years, and another 34% of people plan it in the next three years. Three quarters of people clearly think it's worthwhile, but with an average cost of £8,000, will it pay you back financially?

And how does the rest of the top ten fare?
