When approaching or nearing retirement age most people like the idea of settling in and improving their current residence rather than upping sticks and moving elsewhere.
Following a recent relaxation of when you can withdraw your pension, a study conducted by the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association has found that most people aged between 55-70 are spending some, or all, of their pension money on home improvements (32%).
Investing in home improvements came ahead of alternative options such as buying a new car or heading on holiday. Purchasing a new property only accounted for 8% of those surveyed.
After years of working who could blame anyone for wanting to make home living as enjoyable as possible by e.g. having new windows and doors installed, or commissioning the integration of a conservatory or orangery.
The latter two forms of home improvement are perfect for retired workers looking to relax to the fullest indoors.
The cosy ambience makes them the ideal place to catch up first thing on the newspapers whilst tucking into breakfast or having an afternoon nap in your favourite chair before dinnertime. Even once darkness falls you can continue on enjoying its surrounds with your nearest and dearest.
Replacement windows and doors are a similarly sound choice if your current energy bill is making a severe dent in your finances.
Fitting new thermally efficient windows and doors will significantly cut the cost of fuel and make the whole of the house feel more comfortable. They pay you back over time via the savings you can expect to make.
On the whole, improving your home will add extra value to the property, so such products are definitely worth your money.
