From our plastering HQ here in Walsall we – like you – have been gearing up for Christmas. It was a fantastic summer and it is now that we often reflect on some of the work that was done over the year. We got to thinking about the variations that have been achieved with plaster- and decorative-effects.
I had one plastering customer in Walsall who wanted to create an entirely classic look in the kitchen – but ensuring the design was fresh, open and modern.
I showed the customer this stunning image of a modern fresh kitchen:
The cool whites accented by some dark brown and the black piano give a really striking image; a true inspiration.
Most customers want a fresh and modern feel to an extension or a refurbishment. This is a perfect example:
Take a look at those clean plastered corners that have been accentuated by a fresh white paint-job. Simply stunning. The owners have also de-cluttered to ensure that it has that “everything in its place” look that we all crave (but can rarely achieve).
But there’s classic and there’s CLASSIC. Take a look at this breathtaking example of interior design:
Not many of our customers in Walsall will be envisioning this sort of interior but you wouldn’t deny that it is eye-catching! The ceiling and walls are opulent and – dare we say it – ostentatious!
We haven’t been sat around enjoying the fat of the land over Summer. It’s been busy in the world of plastering. In preparation for winter, many Walsall and Wolverhampton residents have been sprucing up their homes and enjoying the warmer weather in the comfort of modern surroundings. (If you’d like some interior design tips then visit our Facebook Page.)
It’s September now and you may have noticed a light chill in the air. Here on Church Hill in Wednesbury, we’ve certainly felt it over this weekend. Before long, there’ll be frost on the windows of our cars and we’ll all snap our boilers on and realise that they’re no longer working!
If you haven’t yet made plans to upgrade your insulation then now is the time to act. If you’re lucky you may find some useful deals at your local DIY store so make sure that September is insulation month!
- Check your loft insulation. How old is it? Modern insulation lasts indefinitely but always check. If the last resident did the insulation it could be decades old!
- Check doors and windows: You may want to buy rubber insulation tape. You can also purchase window insulation film to add further glazing. Remember, heavy drapes or blinds (or both) do a good job of insulating your windows.
- Check your radiators: foil lining behind radiators will reflect heat back into the room – particularly if your radiator is on an exterior wall.
- Pipe insulation: particularly outside pipes. A cracked pipe will be a real headache in the dead of winter!
Use our check-list ahead of the winter months and you could save a fortune!
