Over the last year, we have all spent a lot of time at home. Of course, this is down to the various lockdowns that the UK has had to endure due to the Pandemic and it has resulted in some people wanting to freshen up the interior of their homes. Of course, you can hire someone to design it all for you, and then also hire someone else to turn their vision into reality. But don’t you think seeing as it is your home that you should be the one to make these changes? Here at Able Skills, we can offer you the opportunity to do just that! Our Multi-Skills Courses will teach you everything you need to know.

Home Improvement Statistics

Did you know that 52% of homeowners have said that they are planning on carrying out home improvements in 2021? People have a variety of reasons for wanting to improve their home and it isn’t always to do with the pandemic and being stuck inside. A big aspect that people always look for is adding value to their property. 27% of people claim that this is the real reason that they want to improve their home.  

Home Offices 

As we mentioned previously, the Covid-19 Pandemic has left 55% of the UK working from home throughout 2020 and well into 2021. Businesses and their employees had to adapt to this unprecedented way of working. With so many rooms in a modern home, people have made the most of all the spaces available. 15% of people are using their bedroom and 21% of people using their Living Room as their makeshift home office, it may be time to dedicate a whole room to an office space. With home working for many still with us for the foreseeable future, this is something that a lot of people are starting to consider.

By having a Home Office you will be creating a space that will provide you with privacy and an environment to focus on work. Because if we are being honest, nobody is productive sat in front of the TV in their pyjamas are they! 

Why You Should Complete Your Home Improvements Yourself 

Here at Able Skills, we run a variety of City & Guilds accredited courses that will help you out if you want to improve your home with your own skills. A lot of people think that they can tackle these home improvements without any training and quickly realise that they do not have the skill to do so. In addition to this if you decide to complete our training and then carry out the work yourself you will be saving yourself a lot of money. For example, our Property Development Course will provide you with experience in the following trades: Tiling, Plumbing, Plastering, Painting & Decorating, Carpentry, and Bricklaying. If you choose this qualification you will spend a week in each of these departments learning the basics of the industries.
