The top items in our homes that people focus on the most include kitchen floors, bathroom mirrors, home office chairs and throws on a bed. BATHROOM If you're looking for quick fix to spruce up your bathroom you could be in luck, because coming top of the list wasn't the bath or shower, but the mirror. Also ranking highly was sink drawers. KID’S ROOM In the child's bedroom, it was the bed that was looked at the most, followed by the bookcase.
