A survey this month has indicated that it’s no longer the “fairer sex” who is committed to building a nest, but it is in fact men who are spending more on furniture for the home.
While women spend lavishly on personal items like jeans and perfume, it is men who are investing in large pieces of furniture for the home.
Experian’s survey results are supported by the impressive statistic that UK furniture stores saw the largest sales growth for 3 years last month.
Due to the recent poor weather in Britain, it is believed that the boost in sales of homeware and furniture is due to shoppers turning their sights inside the home.
With the boys spending £257 on average to improve their home surroundings last month, the UK’s girls lavished £231 on themselves!
