We all dread coming home from the DIY store, and unpacking and erecting flat-packed furniture, and 11 percent of those surveyed resonated with this sentiment.
Only seven percent of respondents advised that putting up shelves was a job they dreaded.
Commenting on the findings, William Davies, managing director of Aspect Maintenance, said: “We all hate it when the time comes to give your property a quick refresh, so it’s no surprise that re-decoration is proving to be the most dreaded of DIY tasks.
“However, I was amazed to see that putting up shelving, and erecting furniture received relatively low responses – these are often connected with DIY disasters. Perhaps furniture stores have finally realised, and are creating clearer instructions for us to follow!”
