More Thatched Gazebos Articles Homeowners are spending more money on improving their property and garden as a result of the weak housing market, Elstead Lighting has said.
Jonathan Lucas, managing director at the company, observed that there has been a rise in the number of people opting to stay put and improve their homes rather than move.
"The property market is not so buoyant as it was and there is more spend going on to develop the home and that also covers the garden," he said.
Proud homeowners aiming to improve their properties and gardens could also choose to invest in a stylish African thatched gazebo or log house. According to Mr Lucas, there has been an increased demand for "quality" garden lighting in recent months.
The comments follow recent research from Everest which found that 18 million people intend to improve their property in the next year, while 3.3 million people plan to spend an average of £2,274 improving the outside of their home.
