A long weekend is upon us and for many homeowners this will be a good time to undertake home improvements, such as improving the garden or carrying out some spring cleaning.
Indeed the May bank holiday period presents a great opportunity for property owners to identify areas that need to be revamped, according to Jace Tyrrell, spokesperson for the New West End Company.
He spoke of the growing popularity of home improvements and modifications, which he said are largely driven by a desire to "invest and hopefully make some money when the property prices come back".
"Traditionally the May bank holiday weekend is the biggest weekend for home in the country, and retailers are really pushing the home products. It's a big weekend for retailers," he explained.
Research conducted across the country on behalf of the organisation revealed that almost half of people are planning to invest in their home, with bathroom improvements being especially popular at present.
This could also be a good time for homeowners to talk to specialist home improvement firms, such as Thomas Sanderson, who produce conservatory blinds, window blinds and window shutters.
Debbs French, Design services manager for the company stated "the May Bank Holiday is the perfect time to get your home ready for summer with some interior makeovers and seasonal additions, and blinds and shutters are a great way to inject colour and vibrancy into any room in your home".
This time of year conservatories can become unbearably hot and many homeowners will be looking for ways to control the extreme temperatures that can occur in these rooms. Thomas Sanderson’s pleated conservatory blinds with a solar reflective backing are the ideal solution to this problem. The blinds reflect the sun’s harmful rays during the hot summer months’ ensuring your conservatory is kept cool, making it a more inviting place to sit and relax.
With bathroom improvements identified as the most popular at the moment, homeowners may want to consider investing in the company's LifeTime Vinyl Window Shutters, which are particularly suited for these rooms.
The shutters are designed to thrive in rooms with high moisture and humidity content, such as bathrooms and kitchens, and boast technology that cannot be found anywhere else on the market.
According to the firm, it has spent a long time researching and designing the products, which are "engineered from hard wearing, lightweight PVCu, resulting in the strongest and longest lasting vinyl shutter you can buy".
"The extremely resilient and durable finish makes dents and scratches a rarity and maintaining and cleaning easy," explains the company, which adds all that is needed to remove any marks and blemishes is just soap and water.
Homeowners should ensure that whatever they choose to invest in this bank holiday weekend, it is something they will be proud of for years to come.
