Homeowners spending more on their houses

The Apollo Blinds franchise, one of the UK's leading window blinds store chains, has announced that it has seen an increase in sales as more people are choosing to remain in their current homes rather than putting them on the market. According to the information given, its stores are measuring up record numbers of loft and garage conversions, new extensions and conservatories at a time when the housing market is slowing down.

Ian Thornton, Apollo Blinds regional manager for Scotland and Ireland, believes the so-called 'stay put homeowners' are fuelling the increase in sales because they are prepared to spend hundreds of pounds making the most of what they have got rather than risk losing thousands of pounds by moving.

He commented on the situation saying, “There seems to be a rising tide of homeowners who are choosing to ride out what is happening in the housing market and deciding to improve their own homes while they wait and see what happens. In the current climate this makes sense for a lot of homeowners and our franchisees are seeing this at first hand when they visit people to measure up for blinds in new rooms.”
