A new craze of house renovation was recorded in the March lockdown –This also showed a change in consumer behaviour, with household spending patterns being directly affected by the measures that confined people to their homes. One thought-provoking statistic is that UK homeowners have, on average, each spent £4,035 on renovations since March, totalling a whopping £55 billion for the industry.
When consumers were asked why they had chosen to invest, 63% claimed it was to make their home feel comfortable as they were spending a lot more time at home. A further 27% stated that they were ‘adding value to their homes’, whilst 22% had more disposable income to spend, largely made up of unused holiday funds. Interestingly, Zoom has also had an influence, with almost half of homeowners claiming that renovations were sought out in part to avoid ‘housebarrassment’ on web calls.
Consumers are also turning towards interior design companies to help them realise their design projects. They found that hiring an interior designer helped them to keep their project within budget, whilst giving clients the benefit of their years of experience of design and ideas from their list of manufacturers that exclusively supply the trade.
An interior designer can get you the right product from the right place. A well-experienced and skilled interior designer has the ability to combine various decorating styles like contemporary, modern, classic, and many more in a perfect way to create a fusion that is one-of-a-kind, beautiful and perfectly matches your needs and expectations.
If you haven’t already looked at starting a project for your home then Lockdown 2 could be your chance to save your house from ‘HOUSEMBARRASMENT’.
