Home Improvement Franchises

The UK DIY market alone was forecast to be worth over £8.3bn in 2017 so the home improvement market in the UK is a huge opportunity for anyone interested in the sector.

So what sort of home improvement franchises are available? Some of the different types of home improvement franchises include;

  • Granite worktops and other granite sheets for kitchen and bathroom renovations
  • Locksmith franchises
  • Guttering & roofing
  • Disaster recover, fire, flood etc
  • Drive way construction and cleaning

As more and more pressure is put on governments and local authority to build more new homes this will no doubt increase demand for the above for both the new home build market and ongoing for renovation and repair works. Many people seeking this sort of opportunity may already have a trade and industry experience and wish to work for themselves but with the backing of a franchise brand to help with new business generation and any existing contractual business locally but all franchises usually offer full training and support so dependant on the home improvement franchise this could be a way for someone to change direction.

As with any business opportunity or business purchase you need to take professional advice and carry out due diligence before you invest.

The Furniture Revolution Story

Having been keen furniture up-cyclers for many years, we decided to paint up some furniture for one of our shops to use for displaying our products. We were delighted when customers started to ask if they could buy this furniture and we then started to paint up furniture to sell. To compliment this new business opportunity we decided to sell a range of chalk paint and furniture accessories.

Part of the condition to become a stockist was to attend the supplier's training program, after which we felt even more confident in being able to complete work to a professional standard. So we had our paint nicely displayed with up-cycled furniture for sale and we started doing paint demonstrations.

What we did not anticipate was the amount of people who would ask us to paint their own furniture, which quickly became the most rewarding part of the business. At this stage, we also realised that most people just wanted their dark pine furniture painted a different colour (not necessarily shabby chic). As the chalk paint is great for shabby chic, but not so good for producing a modern smooth waterproof finish, I looked for an additional paint range that would enable us to offer a finish suitable for all types of furniture including kitchens. We also discovered that once you did a piece of furniture for a customer they would want more doing.

For example I painted two kitchen stools for a customer, who asked me to paint their kitchen, dining room and utility room. The other advantages are, a very high profit margin with the materials costing just 5-10%, working for ourselves and choosing the hours that suit us.
