(United Kingdom – 25th July 2011) The summer holidays are often prospects that fill parents with dread, with six weeks of nonstop banter and antics ahead. Many parents find themselves in need of a good holiday by the time September comes. Unfortunately, Terrys Fabrics has discovered a worrying trend that could mean the summer holidays becoming far more arduous.

Many parents will seemingly be decorating and updating their children’s bedrooms, as it appears that one of the top treats this summer is a newly designed bedroom including all the soft furnishing trimmings. This is as opposed to a break, holiday or summer camp.

With the current economic downturn showing little signs of relenting parents are instead looking at more cost effective ways to treat the kids. The odd day trip is being planned, but the main summer treat certainly seems to be a bedroom or playroom upgrade.

Staff at Terrys Fabrics have already seen parents coming into the store with their children to research fabrics and colour schemes in anticipation of the summer makeover. With kids across the country all vying to have the coolest bedroom in the land, competition looks set to be fierce.

“Summer tends to be a quieter time of year for us, many people go away for a break or are generally taking time off to spend with their kids during the long school holidays. However we all know that money is tight but parents don’t want to feel that their kids are missing out, so instead of spending a couple of thousand going away somewhere, they are spending a lot less on re-decorating their kids bedrooms. As a result we have seen our stores a little busier than usual.

“Of course, from a parent’s point of view as well as this being a treat for their children there is a potential secondary benefit to an investment of this nature. Hopefully with newly painted walls, new bedding, new curtains and cushions, a rug and new lighting, the kids will feel much happier and content in their surroundings and will therefore be more inclined to get on with their homework. That is however, only a theory of course!” said Paul McGuinness, Director of Terrys Fabrics.
