Great news for the industry – Brits choose bathrooms and kitchens as top home improvements

kitchen and bathroom montage

A recent survey by home insurance has revealed that this spring 44% of Brits are spending money on bathroom improvements and 39% on new kitchens.

These statistics are based on information provided by home insurance customers who carried out a major home improvement in the last three years. Initially collected to inform researchers of the comparison site about the insurance habits of the nation, the results have deemed extremely compelling for other industry sectors.

This recent news gives great optimism for the tile industry as these are the main household areas that are in need of tiles, to withstand the high foot-traffic and water usage that takes place. It also means that the spending habits of Brits are improving and more homeowners are taking the plunge (get it?!) and splashing out (too much?!) on bathroom renovations.

This, backed by the recent news that the construction industry is seeing rapid improvement with industry insiders revealing that house building and developing is a key area of growth for 2015, means that tilers, tile retailers, distributors and manufacturers should see increased demand over the next 12 months.
