Top 3 things that will make your house a home

Top 3 things that will make your house a home

Wherever you live, whether it be an apartment, mobile home or a shed at the back of a garden, it doesn’t matter, what matters is what goes inside. People and items can transform any space you live in, into a home. People forget that, it’s not the most expensive designer furniture or the ‘style of that year’ that makes a house a home… it’s your personal touch, that’s what makes it work.

Things like, lighting, electric fires and floors, they are simple things that make a big different. I have always believed that making a house a home is easy, if you just follow some simple steps. Finding out what your style is, is something that can be figured out along the way. The whole point of your house becoming a home is to make it your own, personal retreat. Don’t follow the trend, follow your style and you’ll love your home forever.

Lighting

You may think that lighting isn’t a big deal but, you would be surprised how big of a difference it actually makes! Just by changing a few lights, it can immediately make that room feel more like a home. This is because, it gives you the pleasure to add a little personal touch to your home and it gives you the power to decide where your lighting is coming from and where you need it most. Making a room feel cosy is important if you are looking for that homely feel. Lower a light and making the light softer will make a big difference to the ambience of the room.

Fires & Fireplaces

For a room to feel homely, it should always have a great focal point and an electric fireplace is always a great way to get that. Fireplaces can give you a warmth that makes you feel cosy and can also let off an ambience that relaxes and calms the room. There is nothing better than cosying up to an electric fire on a cold night with the lights dimmed, it’s the perfect solution to getting your house to become a home. I came across this blog that literally covers everything you need to know about electric fires from the installation to the safety benefits.

Floors

The flooring where you live plays a big part in whether it feels like home or not. If your house contains cold, uninviting and old flooring, it will have more of an effect than any of the above. One of the first things to do in order to make your house a home would definitely be to choose your flooring. Whether you choose oak, laminate, carpet or decide to go for both and have a hard floor with rugs, it is important to choose your style carefully as this will be the thing that pulls everything else together.

Local Roofing Company in Plymouth Save The Day

A local roofing company in Plymouth “Plymouth Roofers” saved the day today, after freak storms hit Plymouth many households and commercial properties were damaged.

A poor family had an unimaginable experience after part of their pitched roof collapsed due to the rotting timber, luckily no one was injured but that didn’t stop the rainwater entering their house through the huge whole in the roof.

The Edward’s family called Plymouth Roofers immediately desperate for help, the local roofing company had a team of roofers at the Edwards household in no less than twenty minutes. The team erected a temporary roof so that no more rainwater could enter before more serious damage was made.

Locals gathered in the pouring down rain to inspect the roof that had collapsed, after speaking with the locals a number of them mentioned how impressed they were with how the team of roofers took a beating from the weather but still continued to ensure the safety of this family’s property.

 Statement from the Edward’s family: ” We are deeply grateful for Plymouth Roofers coming out to us in our time of need, they really did save the day, thanks again to Mark and his team of hard workers for getting our property protected – Trish, Craig, Matt and Louise.”

A blog for people collecting their results!

Welcome to my sixth blog post! I hope you enjoy what I have wrote for you. I know that it’s coming up to that time of year that most of you start collecting your exam and A-level results. I wanted to take this opportunity to give you a little encouragement to stay positive and believe that you have done the best you possibly could.

People don’t always realise how important school is and they don’t take it very seriously. When the time comes and you start your exams, that’s when most people start to panic… I did exactly the same! It doesn’t hit you until the very last minute that you may not have done enough and why did you catch up on those soaps instead of revising last night?

But, no matter what results you get, it’s what you do with them that counts! You may not get into the university you wanted or get the job you had hoped for, but that isn’t the end of the road, not by a long shot! In today’s society, there is so much that you can achieve, even without the best exam results!

Getting into apprenticeships, doing voluntary work and even going to college, all of these can give you results and give you a second chance if it didn’t work out the first time! So don’t think that it is the end of the world if your expectations fall flat.

Plymouth have so many businesses offering apprenticeships to students and others that want to go into it, you just have to look for them! Businesses nowadays seem to employ open-minded, hardworking individuals that fit in well with the company and can do the work easily… it’s not always about grades anymore!
So keep calm and think positive! Hope the rest of your day is filled with positivity!

Why Plymouth is the best place to live

From its people to its businesses… Plymouth makes the most amazing place to live! Offering scenic views almost everywhere you go, meeting people along the way that are friendly and kind! It amounts to one of the best places to live in Britain.

There are so many things to do in Plymouth, apart from it being a historic city, the Americans call it a home from home. As the pilgrims left there and were flagged off by the Britain’s and the American’s, it has such a historic feel to it that it almost feels like home to anybody.

With a gentle stroll along the coastal paths, the views are breath taking. Plymouth is a place that can offer you a busy atmosphere, gentle walks, beautiful scenery, fresh and clean air, the hustle and bustle of a town but the quietness of a little village too.

With the town not far away from most visiting attractions, there is always something to do nearby. Whether you fancy strolling around the shops, get your heart racing by doing water sports, taking time to yourself and relaxing or getting lost around our many scenic routes… you could never get bored!

Why should you come here?

Plymouth is a tranquil place to come, whether you are passing through, visiting or whether you live here, there will always be something to keep you occupied. I have lived here all of my life and I couldn’t ever imagine living anywhere else!

The people of Plymouth have always been so kind and businesses have always run smoothly. If you go anywhere this year, why not visit Plymouth. You won’t regret it and if you do, you did it wrong!

The wonders of Plymouth

Welcome to my fourth blog post, I hope you enjoy reading it! Whether you are visiting Plymouth or you already live in this lovely little city and are looking for some place to visit, I have to share these amazing places with you that you just have to go and see!

I have done my research and with my own knowledge of the places, I have put together the top 5 places you must visit in Plymouth! Please see them below.

  • The National Marine Aquarium – With over 300,000 visitors per year, it’s no wonder it is so popular! With its inspiring exhibits showing marine animals that are well known to marine animals you may have never seen before, it is a favourite for everyone to go to. The National Marine Aquarium also boasts beautiful environments for the marine animals and tries to get you to really engage with the animals and hopefully get you to help them protect their environment.

 

  • The Royal William Yard Harbour – These stunning grade 1 Royal Naval buildings are so full of life! With a museum, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and more, sitting beautiful just at the entrance of the River Tamar, this beautiful marina will have any jaws on the floor.

 

  • The Mayflower Steps – Even though this tiny memorial, sitting in between the yachts and the little fishing boats of Plymouth, may seem small and worthless to some, it is actually a memorial that holds a huge place in history. Heard of the 102 people that set their sail in Mayflower in 1620? Well the Mayflower Steps was where they departed and were flagged by the British and Americans!

Those three are my top favourites! But don’t just read this, go out and view this magnificent places! It is so worth it!

Have a lovely day everyone

What events to attend

Hello and welcome to my third blog post! I hope you enjoy the read. Today, this blog post is all about events that are happening in and around Plymouth. Plymouth is the perfect place to attend an event or to create and event and in this post I am going to tell you about a few up and coming events but also how you can create your own event.

The reason for this post is we have decided to do a ‘corporate day out’ event in Plymouth and with the struggle I had organising it, I wish someone would have told me about a little website called ‘Go Bananas’ a little sooner.

Go Bananas is a website on the internet that helps the people of Plymouth find, sort out and basically does the whole event for you! Plymouth being a small city on the South coast of England, it can be hard to choose the right venue with the right availability! Well this website helps you as it can sort out which places are the best for your time slots.

Any other events on this August?

So this August, in Plymouth there are a few events that I would recommend you going to if you can. I have listed a few below that I think you all may like!

  • Sunday 28th August – Scooter Fun Day, Prime Delux
    – With a £10 entry fee, I think this event is definitely worth that bit of money! It’s a day full of fun and is the perfect day to take your family out or go out with your friends!

  • Tuesday 23rd August – Ocean’s Under 18’s Club
    – If you’re reading this post and you’re under 18, you need to head down to Oceana on the 23rd August as Terry Walsh (love island star) will be there to meet and greet! That’s a night that no teen should ever risk missing!
  • Friday 26 August/ Saturday 27th August – Oceana Nightclub
    – For people over the age of 18, you would be pleased to know that Oceana does a Friday and a Saturday night! With offers on their drinks and music till early hours of the morning… this club is the perfect place for a get together with all of your friends! Whatever night you decide to go, Oceana is well known over the UK as being a popular club amongst the youth.

More events will be on future posts as they come closure to the date and I will be sharing the events that are a must, so keep your eyes peeled for my future blogs!

Have a lovely afternoon

Something out of this world

Welcome to my second blog post, I hope you enjoy it! So, anybody that knows me knows I love Chinese food more than life itself. Well, I have never been to many Chinese restaurants in Plymouth other than my local one just down the street! But yesterday I was feeling adventurous!

I decided to take my beautiful wife out to a restaurant overlooking the sea (romantic I know) and using Google maps, I found a Chinese restaurant called Wet Wok Chinese that sounded right up my street! And with a rating of 5 stars, I decided to give it a go!

So, upon arrival, they greeted us straight away and got us sat down at a table with an astonishing view! That was the first bonus! Once they had brought over the menus, I was so grateful to see that every dish on it has symbols next to it that told you things you may be allergic too!

As I have a severe nut allergy, this was amazing for me as I knew I had to stay clear of the dishes that had the symbol ‘N’ next to them! Most restaurants today don’t do anything like that which is a shame because allergies are getting more and more common! But some restaurants don’t seem to understand the severity of an allergy until they make a mistake and have to pay the price.

After searching through the dynamic and extensive choices of traditional Chinese dishes, I found what I wanted and we both ordered! I explained to them again about my allergy, which they took very seriously and even spoke to the chef to ensure me that I was perfectly safe in their hands (this is a dream from people who suffer with an allergy).

When the food came out, the presentation was out of this world and the taste was something I had never experienced before! So with the authentic, mouth-watering food, the friendly, helpful staff and the stunning sea views… I can honestly say this was the most amazing experience and I would honestly recommend this place to anybody!

What are you waiting for then… go and see for yourself, don’t just take my word for it!

Have a lovely day!
