For three seasons we can all find our yearning for the summer. The weather is warm, and the sun is certainly getting brighter and happier, but it may be unnecessarily stressful to prepare our garden during the summer season, especially when an event occurs. Do you want to wait until your garden is completely rebuilt, but the weather was not good or if you just want to expand your living space while you can? With the approaching warm weather, it is always the best time to get the garden area looking great and it is actually pretty fun to work outdoors and soak up the sun. You’ll probably feel happier and healthier for it. To begin with, we have prepared a simple list of functions that you must not forget in the next season. Let’s start enjoying your garden! (more…)

Using Hinged Awning Windows

Posted on February 28, 2016 at 12:14 am

A great way to improve the style and function of a room is to use hinged awning windows. Also known as casement windows, awning windows are hinged at the top, allowing for the window frame to move inward or outward. (windows hinged at the bottom are known as hoppers)

They are primarily used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. The windows are opened with a crank, lever or a cam handle, which is placed approximately hand height for the average person. The handle also functions as a window lock, allowing the windows to be securely sealed. Often times, a crank, stay, or friction hinge is necessary when the window opens outward, to hold the window in position despite wind.

Function, style, and security are major strong points of awning windows. You certainly wouldn’t be making a bad choice if you wanted to add awning windows to an existing room.

Open Air Heating Soloutions

Posted on November 29, 2015 at 11:30 pm

Outdoor heating is used regularly by businesses and home owners alike. The ability to remain warm whatever the temperature outside allows outdoor spaces to be used all year round.

There are many different heating systems available. The size of the area that needs to be heated will have a big effect on what heating system will be required.

Sometimes and depending on where you live, the temperature outside gets too low even for the best outdoor heaters. In this circumstance the heaters will struggle to keep even a small area warm, rendering them useless.

But most of the time heaters will comfortably keep an area warm, allowing it to be used whatever the temperature.

Heaters are also great in the rain. While it may not be the cold that is of the greatest concern, the comfortable heat is still a welcome luxury in the unfavourable conditions.

Outdoor Upholstery, Personalise Your Garden

Posted on August 29, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Having a garden space near the home is great. The splendour of the outdoors right next to your house for everyone to enjoy.

Like the home, the garden is a great place to put furniture in. But unlike the home, only certain kinds of furniture are suitable, and usually ones without any fabric which simply aren’t as comfortable.

There is a solution however, and that’s to use specially designed outdoor upholstery on garden furniture.

Outdoor upholstery is designed to be durable, whilst maintaining the comfort of fabric. It is a great addition to standard garden furniture, which usually does not come with upholstery covers or cushions.

Adding upholstery to furniture takes a certain degree of skill to do, but it can make a huge difference to the traditionally hard garden furniture we are accustomed to.

It does not only add additional comfort, but the choice of right outdoor upholstery fabrics can help create suitable mood and add a touch of personal style to any ensemble.

Giant Parasols And Umbrellas

Posted on February 24, 2015 at 2:00 pm

A great way to keep the unwanted sunlight or rainy weather off of your sitting area. Large parasols and umbrellas are a functional and attractive way of adding a protective layer above an extended surface area.

Usually considered over the traditional static outdoor gazebo or hut style outdoor covers. They are increasingly used by businesses and for personal use. There are many modern designs that add style to an outdoor space, as well as being functional. With improved internal parts to enable ease of use and structural stability over traditional umbrella designs.

With added lighting or heating systems, designed for use underneath the umbrella, a truly unique and comfortable space can be created outdoors.

Many large parasols are also moveable and able to be erected in different locations. They can provide cover nearly anywhere. A great choice for a restaurant, pub, café or outdoor event.

Warmth on Brisk Evenings

Posted on January 25, 2015 at 3:46 pm

Adding a heating system to your awning can be a really nice addition, and it means that you can enjoy your outdoor entertainment area, even when it’s a typically cold, British evening.

If you have a patio awning in your back garden, then a patio heater is ideal, and this will usually be wall mounted, providing a desirable amount of warmth for you and your guests. Al fresco dining on a chilly evening no longer has to be an issue with an outdoor heater, and you could even opt for a traditional chimenea.

The great thing is infrared heating is safe, and there is no pressurised gas bottles or cylinder storage problems. It is maintenance free too and you tend to get instant heat, and that’s why you’ll find these clever systems in most British gardens. Some people argue that you get a short lamp life, but this will obviously depend on the system you choose but remember, you do ‘get what you pay for’ most of the time.
