Home improvement trends – Autumn 2011

What can we expect to see in the final quarter of 2011?
Homeowners continuing to invest in their homes by improving them rather than risking a fragile housing market. Relatively small ‘tweaks’ like remodelled en-suites or larger space creating projects including garages or lofts will still be popular as the dark nights shift focus from improving the outside of your home to the inside.
And with the return of the dark nights will come a renewed awareness in energy bills. Expect to see more use of LED and low wattage lighting.
Homeowners will continue to discover that going green is not only good for the environment but good for the waller too. From major projects like solar panel installations to smaller steps like half flush cisterns. Electric showers and central heating boiler upgrades make sound economical as well ecological sense.
Price comparison websites have empowered homeowners to check out prices for themselves and this has extended into the home improvement industry with many homeowners doing the sensible thing of comparing 2 or 3 comparative quotes before signing on the dotted line.
