The housing recovery

It has taken a while but there are signs of economic recovery and it is starting to impact across various industries.

Architects have reported a gradual improvement as when the credit crunch bit, people reeled in their spending especially on big projects. £40,000 is a lot to find when the economy isn't stable so that slowed down housing projects for Architects. However as confidence is coming back builders are making more reasonable quotes and the work is starting to come in.

Interior designers have also noticed an improvement and a slight shift in attitude towards greener products. There is more buying confidence and people are starting to plan ahead.

Furniture stores have also reported an improvement in the more expensive sales. Up until now instead of purchasing a new kitchen the public have been opting for new doors just to refresh their home rather than going all out. There has been a big improvement in the sales of DVD storage as more folk have been staying in to save money.

DIY stores have fared well during the recession as more people opted to give their home a makeover instead of actually moving. Now everyone is getting cosy for winter so DIY is still big.
