Manchester, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/01/2014 -- The recent boom of boutique-style bed and breakfast establishments in the UK could be the cause of a rise in shed sales in 2014. To some people a shed is nothing more than a small building in the garden to house the lawnmower. However an increasing number of people are making extra income from their sheds, with some UK business owners utilising their garden buildings and boasting of earnings topping over £35,000 per year.
Boutique-style B&B owners are trying harder than ever to make their business stand out from the rest. Many are going as far as to spend up to £15,000 on converting their sheds into either luxury guesthouses and are charging as much as £130 for the privilege of staying there for a night.
Other interesting boutique B&B guesthouses have been created from old caravans, wagons and even from horse boxes as the demand from UK holiday makers for somewhere quirky to stay while on holiday soars. It is thought that more people are holidaying in the UK in recent years as they are more aware of the impact that tourism has on the local economy and would rather spend their holiday money at home.
Kye Buchanan, who is the owner of a website that promotes garden building retailers within the UK says that the B&B industry is partly to thank for a recent increase in shed sales:
"The fact that the internet has made sheds and other outbuildings considerably more affordable and easier to buy than ever before, means that more entrepreneurs and small business owners are willing to buy them and convert them into additional sources of low-risk revenue."
Kye says that he has seen a 10% surge in income in the last 12 months since more and more guesthouses converted from garden sheds have been emerging.
