If you’re going to be at home so much, home might as well be nicer.
And if you can’t go to the gym, it might be time to bring the gym to you.
Home improvement projects and renovations have skyrocketed over the past few months, according to all available data. In August, Houzz, an online home remodeling platform, reported a 58% annual increase in project leads for home professionals. Most of those leads had to do with outdoor spaces, such as pools and spa professionals. In fact, one swimming pool supply distributor reported an all-time high sales day this summer and said that its overall sales have been 54% higher than they were last year.
In Michigan alone, there was a 334% increase in swimming pool design and installation project inquiries, as well as a 178% increase in deck, patio, and porch inquiries, according to the Detroit News.
