Published: 28 January 2019 - Kiran Grewal

This April is National Home Improvement Month an awareness campaign organised by the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) to encourage home owners and renters to improve one area of their home during the month of April 2019.

National Home Improvement Month has announced it has recruited TV presenter and former host of DIY SOS and 60 Minute Makeover, Julia Kendell, to be an official ambassador.

Ms Kendell has expressed her excitement at being announced as an ambassador for National Home Improvement Month: “I’ve spent my career inspiring people to create homes they can be proud of and I couldn’t be happier to encourage people to make just one change to their homes in April to have a significant, positive impact.  I know first-hand that home improvements can be both addictive but can also overwhelm if there’s too much to do. By encouraging the UK to make just one change as part of National Home Improvement Month they will experience the satisfaction of living in a home they enjoy that little bit more. The emotional benefits of improving your home environment are immeasurable and, with busy and often stressful lives, we all need a home that supports our day to day living.  I am hoping this manageable approach will encourage everyone to continue to make improvements to their home long after Home Improvement Month”.

Research commissioned by BHETA as part of Home Improvement Month revealed that 69% of Brits don’t love their home, which shows how important it is to encourage people to improve even just one thing.

Paul Grinsell, Executive Director for DIY & Home Improvement at BHETA explains why Julia Kendell is such a good addition to National Home Improvement Month: “As the industry body for suppliers to the Home Improvement sector in the UK we couldn’t be more delighted that Julia is an ambassador for National Home Improvement Month. Many will remember Julia inspiring us to improve our homes from TV shows like 60 Minute Makeover and DIY SOS and the purpose of Home Improvement Month is to inspire home owners and renters to make just one change in their home over the month of April. We’re confident that this April we’ll be inspiring the nation to love the home they live in”.

National Home Improvement Month recently announced it has also recruited BBC presenter, DIY enthusiast and property developer Georgina Burnett to be an official ambassador for the National Home Improvement Month challenge commencing this April.
