In new national research by Powered Now, it has been revealed that the total spent by British consumers on home improvements has amounted to £110.3bn, signalling an increase in expenditure by 29.7%.

The research also highlights that Brits have spent an average of £2,011 per person on home refurbishments, while the UK property market has witnessed a 10.9% rise in average property value.
