Home improvements have been keeping the nation going through lockdown it seems — each household has spent, on average, just over £4,000 on improvements since the beginning of lockdown, research shows.

Findings from Money.co.uk show that homeowners have significantly invested either in renovating a house or making home improvements to better suit their needs during lockdown, and to reflect their changing requirements.
