We recently asked our members what home improvements their customers were buying so far in 2017 to get a professional view of the current UK market. Here are the five most popular home improvements recorded by our members.

1. Aluminium glazing

After decades of popularity in the commercial sector, aluminium is now becoming increasingly popular in the UK residential market. Its sustainability and durability are a hit with homeowners and its sleek architectural look is proving popular in contemporary new build properties.

2. Composite front doors

Composite doors are now the most popular entrance door choice for UK homeowners. Their strong security features and stylish design has given them real mass appeal. Add to this a wide range of colour options and finishes and it’s not difficult to see why they are now the go to product for entrance door solutions.

3. Bifold doors

In 2016, the UK bifold door market really took off. During the first months of 2017, this trend has continued with orders of bifold doors now matching other patio door options.

4. Orangeries

Homeowners are increasingly willing to spend a little bit more for that extra level of quality. Combining the light and air of a conservatory with the strength of a traditional extension; orangeries are now more popular than ever before, as homeowners seek to create a luxurious extended living area.

5. Smart homes

Whether it’s voice activated lighting, hands free taps, or fingerprint recognition locking systems; homeowners can’t seem to get enough of Smart technology. Our members stated that many of their customers are continuing to enquire about new ways to Smartify their homes.
