Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

When you’ve finally chosen the perfect colour tone for your walls, selected the most luxurious carpet and added furniture to a newly decorated room, a new rug can be the final piece in the home decoration puzzle.

With the ability to add a touch of character or ambience to your room, a new rug can be an essential style tool and suited for any room in your home.

Choosing Between a Traditional and Modern Rug
The type of rug you choose will depend on many factors including room setting, personal style and the space available. Traditional rugs will support a room’s natural design without overpowering it. Crafted from a range of sumptuous fabrics and warm weaves, the function of a traditional rug transcends mere design. Add warmth to a wood floor, add tone to natural carpets or just create a sophisticated ambience in any room. The function of traditional style and design is multiple.

However, traditional rugs are not for everyone. If you have already selected a neutral colour or base palette for your room, a bold and colourful modern rug could be the creative spark that really brings your room to life. With a wide range of colours, styles, sizes and patterns available, the only thing holding you back is your own taste or imagination.

Weaving Magical Comfort
Once you have settled on a style, you will need to choose a fabric. Whether you want the soft feel of synthetics or the warm feeling of pure wool between your toes, you’re sure to find a rug suitable for you. Fans of a contemporary rug design will also be able to choose from our super stylish shaggy rug collection and our range of long pile rugs. As well as adding a textured dimension to any room, these rugs provide greater durability and stain resistance.

Trampoline have been available for quite some time now, however, what Jumpking have done is manufactured trampoline to a very high standard, and taken all aspects of safety extremely seriously and used it as a major selling point.

Other great features of Jumpking include the up and under design of springs to increase bounce and slightly redesigned safety enclosure and they also have many intriguing and innovative optional extras such as play tens, camping tents, shoe holder and ladders etc.

This bouncing with health campaign has been endorsed by sporting celebrities such as England cricket captain Andrew Strauss and the British Lion Captain and England Rugby International Lewis Moody as they try to promote children to get active.

Trampolines however can be great fun for all the family, and are now being used as a form of training by top sports people that are part of the extreme sporting category.

Trampoline do have a weight limit, so if you are larger in proportions then you might have to purchase one of the larger trampolines in order to get bouncing, but if you can afford it, and have the space, then always opt for as large a trampoline as possible, because they’re more fun and there’s more space to manoeuvre.

Add the Finishing touch to your Garden with a Water Feature

When you think of water features, the first thought that comes to mind is angels pouring water or cherubs. But Water Features do not have to be twee. Below we have some contemporary suggestions to add that finishing touch to your garden.

The Kohala 3 Polished Tubes Water Feature is definately not traditional or twee, with three tall stainless steel tubes glistening in the sun as water flows down their sides. Adding perhaps some vertical definition, or standing proud of an area of bedding plants. But that’s not all, the Kohala 3 Polished Tubes Water Feature gets even better as the sun goes down.

At the base of the tubes is a set of colour changing LED’s that reflect off the flowing water to bring the water feature to life and make sure that even though the sun has gone down, the water feature can still be a focal point of the garden.

The Pièce de résistance of this water feature has to be the unique bio-ethanol reservoirs on top of each tube, these can be filled with Bio-Ethanol and set alight to give a living flame atop the water feature, meaning the Kohala 3 Polished Tubes Water Feature will be the centre of attention, night or day.

Giant 1.74m Stainless Steel Water Wall Cascade is a self contained water feature made from grade 304 stainless steel. The water feature consists of 2 halogen lights, a 10m mains cable and just needs water adding which allows easy installation indoor or outdoor. The halogen lights add further reflections off of the falling water to give real depth to this unique steel water feature.

The self-contained nature of this water feature means this water feature can freestand on the patio or in between some taller plants to really add that contemporary touch to your garden

UK house prices to rise 8% in next three years

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Global real estate firm CBRE says UK house prices could rise by up to 8% over the next three years, with London properties increasing by as much as 22%.

Although values are expected to fall marginally in 2012, CBRE’s latest house price forecast believes UK house prices will start to rise again next year. Central London properties will continue to outperform the wider housing market, with values increasing by 6% in 2012, and by a total of 22% over the next three years.

Jennet Siebrits, CBRE’s head of residential research, said: “Despite the market being characterised by monthly fluctuations, the longer-term outlook for the housing market is fairly static. We don’t expect it to pick up until the economy fundamentally improves.

“Low interest rates are continuing to stave off repossessions and forced sales, but a substantial proportion of would-be buyers remain unable to move. Ultimately, bank lending still needs to loosen further to spur on housing market activity.”

With these restrictions, people originally looking to move are choosing to improve on their existing property and spend what would now be required as a large deposit on a new mortgage onto DIY or home improvements, such as ripping out that old Fireplace and back boiler or re-do the garden or kitchen. These projects tend to have a more immediate satisfaction, certainly compared to going through the stages of buying a house!
