Contractors

For every homeowner, there’s a moment of truth when the out-of-fashion bathroom appliance colors, cracked tiles and chipped wall paint at home become just too hard to ignore. That’s the moment when a homeowner faces down that very tough question, “is it time to remodel?” It’s a question that doesn’t have the same answer for every person, but it’s one that definitely should be asked.

A Solid Argument in Favor of Renovation

Things age and breakdown, that’s one of the realities of physics, and of course it is a reality that every homeowner must face. Most homeowners decide to renovate their homes if they keep them for a number of years, as a well done renovation
can add to the value of a home and to its enjoyment. A good renovation is sure to bring a higher price to a home at resale time, so whether an owner is staying in a home or intending to sell, a renovation is always a good idea.

Making The Numbers Work

Is it worth it to finance a renovation? As we said above, there’s a solid argument in favor of renovating a home in order to keep its value. While hiring from a selection of general contractors, buying materials and workers to do the job does cost money, a job well done will enhance the value of a home. If there is equity in the home that can be used for financing, and a low interest home loan can be acquired, the numbers do make sense. It’s wise to work closely with an experienced contractor in order to keep the entire project on track and on budget.

Planning The Remodel With a Contractor

Though in the past it might have been difficult to find a high quality, experienced contractor to oversee a home remodel, today there are some great online resources for finding talent. There are websites dedicated to offering listings of talented local contractors with their contact information and resumes. Homeowners can study these listings easily and then contact the person who seems a right fit for the job, and then schedule a free consultation call. After a discussion of the project, the homeowner can get recommendations from the contractor and decide whether or not they want to hire them. From there, it’s time to start planning that incredible home redo!

Top 5 Interior Design Trends that will be huge in 2018!

So 2017 has brought us quite a few different new ideas for making our homes more beautiful.  In the homeware and fashion game, we need to look forward into the future to these 5 big trends that will be BIG in 2018!

 

1 /Tropical leaf prints are going to be big in 2018!

‘Inject a touch of the tropics to your home with leaf prints such as palm and swiss cheese plant (monstera deliciosa),’ says Twelo’s interior style advisor Suzie Enley. ‘Use modern tropical wallpaper to generate a ‘wow factor’ look or use more simplistic leaf prints to keep it more subdued and natural.’

 

 

This is another example based on the tropical leaf theme. The colours of the jungle! Can really bring a rom alive and do not have to be mega expensive. With some creativity you can put together a stunning feature room based on a tropical theme for a very reasonable amount of money!

 

2/ The vintage look.

Vintage sheik is making a strong comeback and will continue to grow in 2018. It does of course depend to some degree on the age and style of your property as to the style of home you create.  Having said that a mixture of modern and classic furniture and décor can tie a house together beautifully if done well as this guide aptly shows http://www.twelo.com/blog/traditional-furniture-mix-match-modern-ultimate-mega-guide/

 

The image below is a great example of modern and vintage combined seamlessly in a modern/period bathroom

Or this bathroom which actually looks victorian but is actually using repro vintage bathroom suite items and ‘new’ old tiles.

Lastly, this amazing 60’s style kitchen just oozes style and class!!

 

3/ Amazing fish tanks

This is one of our favourites but it does come with a disclaimer!! Tropical fish take serious effort to care for and also knowledge, so scaling down aspirations from the grandiose installations shown here may be wise so you can find your feet in the fish keeping world!

 

 

This type of installation takes planning, possible structural works (for example bricks may need to be supported with an RSJ), planning for how a tank will be cleaned and fish will be added and removed etc

Regardless of the tricky logistics it undoubtedly makes a stunning centrepiece for any design focused home.

 

4/ Techno Furniture!

 

This is undoubtedly going to become more prevalent as we move into 2018 and onwards. Technology is only going to be more involved in our daily lives and integrating it into furniture is going to become more and more commonplace. For example iphone chargers built into bedside cabinets and tables, RJ45 network sockets integrated into tables with concealed cable routings and lots more

 

 

5/ Wood effect ceramics

 

Growing in popularity all the time is wood effect ceramics. Ceramics offer a number of benefits over real wood but also come with potential drawbacks. For flooring tiles are infinitely more durable if laid correctly and are also water resistant if the correct grout is used. This combined with the amazing ceramic designs and shapes now available means you can create a stunning centrepiece for a home with almost unlimited choices available in designs!

 

 

One thing to consider with wood effect ceramics, particularly for flooring is that by nature it is a cold surface, where as wood is a warm characterful material. So for many applications underfloor heating is a must unless you want a cold feeling room! This can be using electric heat mat or the more involved piped underfloor heating. Either way, floor temperature needs to be factored in before doing a huge wood effect tiled floor!

Is Your Home Improvement Healthy

Without any doubt, we are a nation of very eager DIYers. When you look at the websites such as slatergordon.co.uk you can easily realise how true it is. But with many DIY projects come #DIYDisasters that can lead to many personal injuries. So how healthy is your DIY project? Do you really know what you are putting yourself at the risk of? Let’s find out.

One problem with DIY projects is that while they usually seem like a cheaper option compared to hiring somebody for the job the truth is that most of us are not even close to being qualified for the job. We all tend to overestimate our abilities thinking that we have what it takes to repair our electric circuit or paint our walls. Of course, there are some easier and less risky projects at home and most of us would be willing to paint the walls in our home ourselves, but even this can turn to be truly risky if you don’t know what you are doing. Even simple tasks such as removing the wallpaper in your home or drilling into your walls can be life threatening if you happen to have asbestos in your home and you are unaware of it. Lead pipes are another hazard with many of them that can be found in the houses that were built before the 1970s.

While conducting even the simplest of DIY projects might seem risky, there are some steps to undertake in order to avoid the hazards related to them. Being aware of possible asbestos, lead pipes, mould, and MDF can mean the difference between health problems and a healthy life. If you are aware of something that is in your home you are a lot more likely to be able to deal with the problems before they even appear.

If you suspect that you have been affected by any of the described-above substances, seek out medical help immediately. Another step to take is to seek out legal advice if applicable. There are many situations in your life when you might not be the one to blame for all the bad things that happened to you.

Visiting Bath

From time to time I like to take a day off (whenever it is possible) and head to the nearby Bath. After taking care of the marketing needs of my small company in the form of address lookup I am really lucky to live close to such a great tourist destination. Even when I don’t feel like driving I can always take the Air Decker that stops just around the corner connecting Bristol Airport with the great city of Bath that so many people just like me choose to visit often.

If you know me you know that I have true #PostcodePride as I take a lot of pride in where I live. I might not live exactly in Bath, but the fact that I live so close and can get there so easily makes me really happy.

I am really glad that the summer is in full swing because this is what I am going to do soon: I am going to travel to Bath and buy a ticket to Roman Baths that stay open until 10pm. I absolutely love the way the baths look in the flickering flames of the torches as there is something absolutely magical about them at night. I never seem to have enough of that sort of experience and I always keep coming back for more usually with my family, but sometimes even alone. The warm waters of the Baths relax me so much that I always end up sleeping very well after a day out like this.

When I am not soaking my body in the relaxing and refreshing waters of the Roman Baths I like to wander around Alexandra Park that has some stunning views on the city. You can see from up here that the Romans built some parts of the city and you can see lots of history from up here. The Roman influences on the architecture of Bath are prevalent and there is no way to deny it.

One of the most famous residents of the city of Bath was Jane Austen. She wasn’t born there, but moved there at the age of 25. I guess when you move to such a beautiful place it is for sure going to affect your work and it did influence Austen’s writings. I have been to her museum many times, but every time I visit it again and again I find something new about her, something I had no idea about.

If you are proud about where you live, don’t hesitate to tell me about it. I know that it might be hard to beat beautiful cities such as Baths when it comes to what they have to offer, but I know that there are more places in the UK that offer a lot to visitors.

Fun Activities for Kids

Summer might be a wonderful time for kids, but most of them can also get easily bored when they don’t go to school. Here are some more ideas on how to make every summer an exciting time for them:

Getting Married Abroad? Here are 10 Picture-Perfect Destinations


It’s fair to say most people go abroad for their honeymoon. But have you ever considered it for your wedding? Getting married in another country is becoming increasingly popular – and with good reason too. It can make the wedding more unique, enjoyable and memorable for everyone involved. But you need to get the destination right. Read on for our pick of the best wedding destinations abroad.

  1. Caribbean

The Caribbean is one of the most popular wedding destinations in the world. It’s no wonder, with stretching white beaches, endless blue seas and all the palm trees a bride and groom could wish for. The likes of Barbados, Antigua and Jamaica are the perfect setting for an idyllic beach wedding, with the delightful temperatures to match. Famous as the home of rum and jerk chicken, the islands also offer some great options for the wedding breakfast and toasts.

  1. Italy

Italy is in its own league when it comes to weddings abroad. The European gem is full of scenic destinations like the Amalfi coast, Venice and of course the beautiful Italian lakes. Italian cuisine speaks for itself, with some of the best wine in the world too. And in the Spring and Summer months, you can usually count on some great weather.

  1. USA

As with most things, the States have their own unique offering for tying the knot. Weddings in Vegas, New York and Orlando swap quaint and subtle for bold and eye-catching. Sure, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But if you want to go big on your ‘big day’, you should definitely venture across the pond.

  1. Iceland

Not everybody wants sun, sea and sand on their wedding day. For those looking for a wedding abroad that’s a bit different, you can’t beat Iceland. The Nordic island has stunning views at every corner, with natural spas, fjords and – if you’re lucky – a glimpse of the unbelievable northern lights. It’s perfect for truly unique wedding photos, but make sure you don’t forget your coat.

  1. Cyprus

Home to the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, Cyprus has it all. Beautiful scenery, gorgeous weather – the so-called ‘island of love’ even has plenty of great nightlife for stag and hen parties should you choose to take the pre-wedding festivities abroad too. Unlike some of the other wedding destinations, Cyprus also offers great value for money. Whether it’s a world heritage site or a simple hotel wedding, Cyprus weddings provide boundless beauty without the massive budget.

Where to go?

As well as being great for weddings, Cyprus is amongst the best destinations to visit this year. Located on the western coast, the city of Paphos has been chosen as European Capital of Culture for 2017. It’s just one of many great places though. Check out which other destinations made the list on our infographic Travelling in 2017: Top 10 Destinations in the World.
