Hanging Around” – Surrey Life – Cover Page – Homes and Gardens

With everyone spending more time at home, many family properties feel as though they are bursting at the seams. According to a survey by Unhooked Communications, a third of Brits have splashed cash on garden transformations because holidays have been cancelled.

Paul Cameron, Director of Treehouse Life, in Surrey, has seen an increased demand for tree houses, not just to provide a magical place for children to play in but also as a place to which parents can escape.

In a world of social media and electronics, a treehouse is a reason and purpose for pretending, make -believe and imagination,” he says, “…it allows children and grown-ups to all be child-like together as a family.”

Consumers recreating holidays at home due to lockdown

Hot tubs, outdoor bars and pizza ovens have topped the shopping lists of millions of locked down Brits looking to transform their outdoor spaces to recreate the holiday feeling at home. 

New research has revealed millions of UK consumers have spent more money than usual on their homes as a result of lockdown, with a third saying they’ve splashed the cash on garden transformations because abroad holidays have been cancelled.

Over the last two months, 72 per cent of people have bought new interiors products for their home, with 42 per cent saying because they’ve spent less money day-to-day because of the lockdown, they’ve had extra cash to improve their properties.

The research, which questioned over 2,000 consumers, found 47 per cent have invested in items for their garden such as hot tubs, outdoor bars, pizza ovens, summerhouses and outdoor seating to make the most out of the sunny weather and bring some holiday fun to their home.

Out of those who have made such purchases for their outdoor spaces, over a quarter (26 per cent) have bought outdoor furniture and seating, and more than a fifth (23 per cent) have bought outdoor cooking equipment such as a BBQ or pizza oven.

Over a fifth (22 per cent) have shopped for new outdoor toys for their kids and 12 per cent have bought a summer house or shed. One in ten have invested in a hot tub, and 7 per cent have bought an outdoor bar.
