Wickes conducted a nationwide survey. We asked over 1000 members of the British public about their homes and what parts of it they were embarrassed to show off to guests. Here are the results:
0% of homeowners are embarrassed about an aspect of their homes
0% of Brits wish their homes looked better
Women tend to be more critical about their homes

As many of us continue to work from home, our latest advert reflects on the way our living spaces are always on display. We watch as one unfortunate lady is caught out by some nosy colleagues on a work call, all desperate to look around her less-than-perfect kitchen.
Not knowing quite what to do, she panics and pretends her camera has frozen….only for her cat to spoil it all by walking across the keyboard in front of her. Ah well. She then turns to Wickes, who help cure her housebarrassment by transforming her kitchen into a space she’s very happy to show off. And the cat? Oh...we don't ask about the cat.
