Life Expectancies around the Home

In every household there are odd jobs that need to be done from time to time – a lick of paint here, a light bulb to change there. Sometimes the little tasks can seem never-ending, however with small repairs now and again, most appliances can be around for the long haul. We know what an expensive business running a home can be, that’s why we’ve created this handy infographic to give you an idea of how long you should expect appliances and other household items to last. Whilst the life expectancies will differ from model to model, it’s always a good idea to keep track of how long you have had them and have a realistic idea whether you should carry out repairs or replace the item.

Our Life Expectancy infographic acts as a guide to how long you should anticipate everything from your front door to your mattress to last. You may be surprised; some items around the home could last up to 100 years, and some may even last several centuries!
