Two of the top priorities include a bigger kitchen for entertaining (36%) and a fast Wi-Fi connection (29%).

‘Home Movers’ in the UK are on the rise with over a third (34%) looking to move home in the next year, with a quarter (25%) of those having already put their current home on sale.

In terms of what the British public would rather have when moving house, the study revealed that Brits are looking for outdoor space over a place to park their car, with more than two-thirds (69%) choosing a garden over a parking space and nearly half (49%) picking a house with a park nearby over one that is close to public transport (43%).

Surprisingly over half (53%) of people would rather a spare bedroom than a home office with just over a third (38%).

When it comes to technology in the home, nearly half (46%) would rather a TV that doubles up as artwork than traditional picture frames (32%).

In addition to this, whilst 60% of those polled would like to have a completely digitally connected home where the house is connected to devices that can be controlled remotely via a smartphone or computer, 38% wouldn’t know where to start when trying to create a smart home.

Tanya Weller, Marketing Director of Home Appliances at Samsung Electronics, said, “With the rise in home movers, many now have a different checklist compared to ten years ago.

“The last two years have made people think about what they really want, with outdoor space being a key priority.

“In addition to this, home appliances that are convenient for families are hugely desired – from Samsung’s Bespoke Jet™ Pro Extra, which is a powerful, light, and efficient cordless vacuum cleaner with a built-in clean station that automatically empties dust and delivers hygienic cleaning, to our most energy-efficient RS8000 American-style fridge freezer on the market1 that offers a sleek design and increased storage space for food.”
