It reveals that double-glazing was the most popular installation, followed by fitted kitchens, garden improvements, a new bathroom and home security.
Main reasons people gave for upgrading their home were to improve their standard of living, add value or to reduce fuel bills. Double-glazing proved most popular with pensioners, those people who had lived in the same home for more than 20 years and people in the South East.
Fitted kitchens appealed primarily to the 55-64 year olds, suggesting that they wanted to make life easier before they retire.
Cutting fuel bills was a priority with the over 65s, too, who were also most keen on home security.
