A new survey’s results suggest do-it-yourselfers likely have one of five “home improvement personalities.”

The Home Projects Council, a consortium of home improvement experts, surveyed 1,136 people and learned that DIYers likely identify with one of these groups:

  • The Sensible Improver: A nurturing homeowner who embraces home improvement projects that create a warm and welcome environment
  • The Project Planner: Takes a meticulous approach and thoroughly assesses every situation before committing to a home improvement project regardless of how big or small.
  • The Reliable Renovator: Takes a laid-back approach to home improvement and is most often moved to action when his or her home needs attention.
  • The Visionary: Has an appreciation and curiosity for novel ideas with boundless passion and enthusiasm for upgrading his or her family’s home.
  • The Extrovert: Takes pleasure in completing complex home improvement projects that make an impact to his or her home.
