Need a loan for home improvements?

Renovating your home could add value to it, and it could work out cheaper than moving house. If you’re planning on improving or even extending your home, an Ocean Home Improvement Loan could help.

There are lots of ways you could fund your renovations, but if you haven’t had chance to save up, a home improvement loan could help. We have access to competitive rates from a panel of lenders. We offer two different types of loan – homeowner and personal.

As the name suggests, you must own your home to be eligible for a homeowner loan. These loans range from £10,000 to £500,000 over 3 to 30 years. You can get a quote to find home improvement loans that you’re likely to be accepted for, before you apply - without affecting your credit score.

Personal loans are different because you don’t have to be a homeowner to apply. These range from £1,000 to £15,000 and can be repaid over 1 to 5 years.

A home improvement loan could help with:

  • Building an extension
    Adding an extension or conservatory won’t just give you extra living space, it could also add value to your home.
  • Upgrading your kitchen
    A new kitchen, complete with new appliances, cupboards and furniture can help you bring your home up to date. If you’re looking to spend less, you could just update the worktops, floor or cabinet doors to add a more modern touch.
  • Loft conversion
    Make the most of your home by converting your loft into another room. Adding another bedroom could add to the value of your home too.
  • Redecorate
    This is one of the easiest ways to revamp your home. New wallpaper and new furniture can transform your living space, without breaking the bank.
  • Garden makeover
    In the summer (if the weather permits it!), there’s no better place to spend a day than in the garden. Adding decking or a new seating area could help you make the most of your outdoor space.

Remember, if you consolidate your existing borrowing, you may be extending the term and increasing the amount you repay in total.
