If you’ve already built or are just thinking about building a sunroom, then you’ll want to make sure you’re making the most of it by having the very best sunroom windows fitted in it.
If your sunroom is an older one, perhaps one that was already there when you took over the property, then the technology used in sunroom windows has progressed a lot in the last decade or so and you could improve your sunroom immensely by fitting new sunroom windows.
Stone walkways and paths are a quick and easy way to establish paths and walkways through and around any garden. If your garden isn’t flat, then you need to establish the gradient of it away from the house, or main building, that the path is servicing and then work away from that building when creating the path.
For the sake of simplicity we’ll imagine you’re setting your path or walkway to go across a lawn. If you’re not entirely sure what direction or design of path you want, trace out a prospective route on the lawn by dropping lines of sand to mark the edges of the path. If you don’t like it, you can mark out another route and the sand can be easily brushed away or removed next time the lawn is cut.
If you’ve gone to the expense of installing and maintaining your own pool then surely you also want to have the very best decking around it, stamped concrete pool decking.
Once installed, stamped concrete pool decking has several advantages over stone tiles and wood decking, quite simply with stone tiles likely to lift people tripping on your decking is a risk, whilst slipping and sliding on wooden decking is always a danger. Stamped concrete decking around your pool won’t lift or cause tripping and sliding issues, making it not only the most decorative option but also the safest one.

For many years having wood paneling in a room was seen as rather ‘old fashioned’ and not in keeping with the modern minimalist styles.
However, as with many things, the style gurus are now proclaiming homes with original and classical wood paneling features to be back in fashion, so it could be an ideal time to consider refinishing that wood paneling.
