Thinking of making improvements to your home?

A personal loan from M&S Bank may help

Personal loans for home improvements

Got a project in mind for your home? From a grand design like a loft extension to a little living room makeover, home improvements are a big commitment - and an exciting experience.

There are many reasons you might choose to improve your home. You’ve just moved into a house that requires urgent structural work, you want to increase its value - or maybe you just fancy a change.

But with the thrills of putting your own stamp on your place comes the process of finding the money to pay for it. By choosing a personal loan from M&S Bank you could cover the cost of home improvements and then pay the amount back over a period that suits you.

Why choose a personal loan for your home improvements?

Not everyone is in a position to pay for home improvements upfront using savings. There are several ways to pay for home improvements and it’s important to find a way that works best for you.

You could choose to pay for labour and materials month-on-month, but this might affect the timeframe of your project. You could save in advance, but sometimes this just isn’t feasible – especially if your house requires urgent attention.

By choosing a home improvement loan, you could borrow the amount you require all in one go. This allows you to make the improvements to your home in a timely manner and means you could pay back the amount you borrow in affordable monthly payments over a period that suits you.
