Many people want to give their home a touch of elegance. Patios have a lot to offer in a home, from beauty to functionality. Your home may not have a patio, but you can add one and enjoy its benefits. If your home has an outdoor space that you are not utilizing, you can use that space to build a patio. It gives you a place to relax and unwind.

How to Declutter Your Home in a Day

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

Cleaning can become an overwhelming task if you let it pile up. It’s therefore imperative to deal with clutter quickly before it becomes too intimidating. But if you are like most people, you probably find it hard to clean your home and keep it clean all through.

This article will give you a strategy to declutter your home in a day and maintain a clean environment. Remember, keeping your home tidy and sanitary helps you to avoid potential health hazards and monitor your belongings.

The best way to clean your home is to tackle it in stages; trying to do everything at the same time will be not only overwhelming but also ineffective. So, focus on one space, one room or even one area within a room (like your closet), and move to the next space when you are done with the previous one. Tackling one area at a time … Read the rest

Self-build or Renovation: Two ways to create your dream home

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

Self-Build or Renovate: Which should you choose?

Imagine building your perfect home – designing and putting it together exactly as you wanted it, down to every last detail.

Research shows that more than half the population would love to do this. And it doesn’t have to just be a dream. Around 12,000 families in England now build their own homes each year – between seven and 10 per cent of new housing. The UK also has 216,000 homes which have been empty for six months or more – prime targets for renovation.

Both options essentially give you a blank canvas on which to paint the home you want – so here are some things to think about before deciding which option to go for.

Land ahoy!

If you’re going to build your own home from scratch, you’ll need some land to put it on – and that can be one … Read the rest

The Secret Life of Doors

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

Whilst it might not be widely spoken about, the history of doors actually tells us a lot about the way that design has changed over the years.

Indeed, the way in which doors went from being a fixture to keep out the cold, to a way of revealing status and taste demonstrates how utilitarian objects have, over time, become a source of fascination amongst designers.

Establishing exactly when doors became treated as objects worthy of decoration is, however, somewhat difficult.

Some records suggest that it was the Egyptians who first recognised the artistic potential of doors. Used to divide sections of their tombs, a series of doors were decorated with images of the afterlife as they believed that doorways were symbolic of passing on after death.

Other historians have pointed to the way that the expert metalwork which adorns the doors of the ancient Greek and Roman doors suggests they … Read the rest
