Those living in the south of England are set to splash out significant amounts of money on DIY projects this Easter.
Figures published by the Co-operative Bank revealed that in a table charting how much money people in regions across all the UK will spend on DIY this Easter, those from London are top of the league, with an average expenditure of just over £200, followed by £190 for those in Wales.
People in the south-east and south-west came third and fourth, spending £161 and £158 respectively.
On the other hand, people in the north-east are on track to spend £116 when it comes to DIY.
Terry Jordan, head of mortgages for The Co-operative Bank, states: “In the current economic climate with the slowdown in the property market, people are not moving house as much as before.”
Instead, he points out that people are looking to make improvements not only to make their living space more attractive but to boost the overall value of their home.
Meanwhile, BDO Stoy Hayward recently reported that improved weather over the course of March had helped to drive DIY sales at homeware stores.
