Recent research by Everest found the cost of improving your home has risen hugely since 1991. The average UK home cost just £73,000 in 1991, while today it is £288,000 – a 295% increase. All the while salaries have only risen by 45%.
However, Everest is bucking the trend of soaring costs by reducing its windows to the same price customers paid 25 years ago!
To mark the campaign, Everest joined Anna Ryder Richardson, the star of hit 90’s interiors show, Changing Rooms and leading interiors blogger Arianna Trapani of Arianna’s Daily for a special radio day to get their top tips on improving your home in an affordable way.
Discussing the best ways to add value to your property, Anna advised:
- Don't skimp, invest in quality efficient products
- Research the best companies to use for home improvements
- Invest in double glazing - windows are like radiators and keep the warmth in
While Arianna’s top tips for adding value to your property on a budget, in terms of quick interior fixes included:
- Checking out interiors blogs for top tips and advice
- Checking YouTube for interior hack tutorials
- Heading to the high-street - there’s a lot on offer to match any budget
- Experiment with colour, although white will always be in! Everest has a great range of doors in a variety of shades
To celebrate Everest rewinding its prices to 1991, Anna also took the opportunity to reminisce about her least favourite trends from the 90’s, which included; rag rolling, beige tones, crazy paving and floral carpets!
