HIB welcomes bathroom renovation popularity
Popular bathroom brand, HiB has welcomed new market research which reveals that the bathroom is the most popular room for home improvements.
According to a new study by The Tile Depot, (www.swns.com) UK bathrooms are now the most popular choice of home improvement, with nearly half (44%) of people choosing to renovate their bathroom. In comparison, the kitchen comes a close second with 42%, followed by the garden with 17%.
Notably, the study showed the bathroom to be a more affordable renovation option - equating to an average spend of £4,900 compared to £9,600 on kitchens and a whopping £19,750 on extensions.
"From what we've seen, as a business specialising in the KBB sector for a quarter of a century, it's no surprise that the bathroom is taking centre stage when it comes to home improvements," notes Steve Kaye, marketing director at HiB.
"In addition to being one of the most important rooms in the home, offering a personal retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the bathroom is one of easiest ways to add value when selling your home."
As a company which has long championed beautiful bathroom design, the HiB portfolio includes the very best in mirrors, cabinets, furniture, ventilation and lighting - offering endless design inspiration for bathroom renovations.
"For those who aren't able to afford a new bathroom suite, however it's important to remember than smaller adjustments can still make a big impact," suggests Steve. A well-placed mirror or cabinet, new lighting and some new accessories, for example, can instantly inject a new lease of life into a tired bathroom setting."
