Design ideas: Adding a surround to your fireplace

Posted on December 29, 2017 at 11:22 am

Whether or not you’re considering some design changes to your home, there are certain key features worth looking at for 2018. One of which is your traditional marble, stone or oak fire surrounds.

The interesting point about fireplaces is they tend to deliver a pleasant layer of elegance and hominess to any room that many individuals insist on. The fact is many people probably don’t actually use their fireplace half the time. This is obviously because most homes now have central heating but it hasn’t exactly changed the demand too much. Many modern and traditional properties are a good match for a fireplace, and whether you only use it once a year or several times a year, it will be worth buying for the value and style it can add to your home.

When you are decorating your home, including your fireplace area, try to do some research on the huge variety of designs that are available online. We’re sure whatever you decide on will help make the place more cosy and comfortable for your loved ones. Whenever you are decorating the fireplace, you can normally see the standard red brick style having a wood mantel, and this is one of the popular designs right now. But slight analysis and internet browsing will reveal that you can find a design and style for your new fireplace which is unique and will mix you with interior decorating themes superbly.

The design that you decide to use on your fireplace should add some pleasure and make the place comfortable and pleasant during the winter season. Some people consider the fireplace as one of the features that add a lot of character. It is from this that you should ensure that you have created a good design in your fireplace area. By thinking it through when you are in the process of designing the room, you can have a fireplace that suits the decor correctly and speaks kindly of your sense of style.

One thing a fireplace cannot guarantee, however, is a timeless style. The trends in the fireplace industry are always changing and evolving, and jus like the world of high street fashion, you do have to keep with the times. A good fireplace will of course last for years, but there will come a time when it needs to be modernised, so it can be best to think of this task as a ‘once in every 5 years’ kind of job!

You also need to think quite carefully about safety. Your installer will of course know what goes where and he or she will also be able to point out any issues you need to get around, but when the stove or fireplace has been installed, you need to make sure everything is sealed correctly, because leaks can cause deaths! You also need a carbon monoxide detector to ensure your family is safe in the event of an outbreak.

Shopping for Games: Why 2018 is set to be a great year

Posted on June 21, 2017 at 6:18 am

It seems like all game developers have decided to wait until 2018 to release their games, and GameFreak is no different. They’ve begun a development on a core RPG Pokémon title for the Nintendo Switch and it should be ready for us at some point in 2018. It’s said that this new game will feature the same art style, map, routes, and cities as Pokémon Sun and Moon, but it will mark the first time in the history of the series that a “main” Pokémon RPG title is coming to a home console so this is huge news.

We can only really speculate what the game could include, but just knowing something special like this is on its way is exciting enough, and we look forward to writing articles that build up to its release over the coming months. We can only hope it’s a big improvement on the existing Pokémon Sun and Moon from the 3DS. This is just one of many titles set to launch in 2018 so if you’re a gamer, or you have a relative who is, there will be plenty of great gaming gift ideas for Easter 2018!

eBay Feedback – Find Fakers

Posted on July 23, 2016 at 10:16 pm

Whenever you’re set to bid or buy on Ebay, it’s important to check the feedback of the seller. Have they sold anything before? If they did, how expensive was it? Did the buyer leave positive or negative feedback? What’s their current feedback score? These are the answers you need to find out and you can do this by simply clicking the user and browsing their buying and selling history. As rule of thumb, you should never buy from someone who hasn’t sold or bought anything before. They may not have even set up their Paypal account as there’s no proof, so don’t buy until they have some kind of proven history. Finding fakers is easier than it seems, and the more homework you do on a seller, the more you’ll know abut them and whether they’re worth the risk.
