Home Improvements in lockdown

Let us be honest, Lockdown is not something we would ever wish for and it is certainly something we are all hoping doesn’t need to happen again. However, during these times, people have spent more time at home and have found themselves with more time for DIY and home improvements. A recent study found a fifth of homeowners started home improvements in the first lockdown and sales of household goods and DIY saw a 10% jump in sales.

With gyms closed, and holidays cancelled, many people have found themselves with a little extra money in their pockets which has further fuelled people’s interest in making their dream home a reality.

As trades people were allowed back on site and into people’s homes after the initial lockdown, Rococo has not stopped helping customers to realise their dream projects and home renovations. Below are details of our top 5 improvement projects completed throughout this very unusual year!

Upgrading and changing old and tired windows

For an instant facelift on a property, replacing old, tired windows for new Aluminium options will not only look fantastic, but will offer better security and thermal efficiency for your home.

Upgrading Front doors and entrances

The front door is the focal point to any home and is the first thing people will notice. With so many options and colours to choose from, the possibilities are endless. From Composite doors for a fresh, modern look, to Traditional Real Wood alternative options that are in keeping with older style properties, Rococo can design and fit any option to meet your requirements.

Replacing old steel sliding doors

For a quick and reasonably inexpensive modernisation, consider changing old sliding or French doors for new slim line sliding doors or Bi Folds. Not only do they look great and are easy to use, but they will provide a greater level of security for your home.

 Kitchen Extension

For a slightly larger project that will add not only space, but value to your property, a kitchen extension is the ultimate home improvement project. The possibilities are endless, with Bi Folding doors or sliding door options to connect the inside with the garden, to roof lanterns and glazed roofs to flood the space with natural day light, anything goes!
