Home Improvements Items
Parents making the most of free space after their children fly the nest are opting for gyms, games rooms and second bathrooms, a survey reveals.
One in six Brits will use the Easter Bank Holiday weekend to carry out home improvements, but most of them will do so without any expert help, new research commissioned by Santander Insurance suggests.
The number of home insurance claims for accidental damage in the first half of 2012 is expected to peak in March for the third year running as people get busy with DIY in the warmer weather, research suggests.
One in five of all personal loans taken out are used solely to pay for home improvements, new research claims. According to Sainsbury’s Finance, 21 per cent of people invest the borrowed cash in their homes, up slightly from 20.8 per cent last year.
