Online tiles specialist, TileClick, continues to thrive in competitive market.
Online PR News – 07-July-2009 – – Despite the current economic downturn, kitchen and bathroom refurbishments are on the increase.
With many businesses struggling for survival in many different industries, UK bathroom and kitchen tile outlet TileClick are one company that seem to have bucked the trend.
TileClick General Manager, Jeremy Turner, said: “More people are staying put and refurbishing their property during these uncertain times. Over the last year, despite the economic climate, TileClick have found that although business has been tough, with more consumers wanting better prices, people are still refurbishing their kitchens and bathrooms.
“When moving house, kitchens and bathrooms are usually first on the list to refurbish and make your own, and likewise when people aren’t moving and have chosen to extend or improve on what they already have, it is the kitchens and bathrooms that receive priority treatment.
“There are also those that are happy where they live and can achieve what they want in their existing home - these people tend to choose their tiles more personably, taking time to order samples and get the look right as they will be living there for years to come. Conversely, when looking to add value people tend to choose more classic and general tile ranges that are less personal or offensive.”
Ourproperty.co.uk, the free Land Registry house price data site, also believe that many people are choosing to refurbish their home rather than move during these uncertain times.
Spokesperson, Louise Doherty said: "Thanks to the current state of the housing market we're seeing a growing number of people refurbishing their houses instead of moving - either to add value for a future sale or to enable them to rent the house out until the market starts to pick up again.”
Tile Association Award winners, TileClick, are continuing to offer the lowest prices possible to customers looking to refurbish their kitchens and bathrooms and currently have a summer sale offering further discounts on designer tiles.
