Okay, folks, it’s almost the end of 2019, and what have we learned this year? Well, if you’re anything like me, you’ve learned that holding onto the negatives in life is not a good idea! The best thing about the promise of a New Year is a new start you get, and that involves decluttering your life. You may have already dispensed with the negative people around you, but now it’s time to clean up your house. Decluttering needs to begin soon so that by the start of the year, you’re geared up and ready for that fresh start!

We’re all so busy trying to make our gardens more functional and useable, or to keep it as tidy as possible, that it’s easy for it all to start looking a little artificial, to put it politely. Neatly kept grass, nice, clean patios, and carefully pruned greenery is all well and good, but it can feel like you’re sucking the soul out of the garden. If you feel like it has gone a little too far, here are a few ways to bring back the natural feeling.

If you've recently moved into your dream home, or you are just trying to make some simple improvements to your space, one of the major issues is making room for all of your things. When we keep buying new things, they can cause a lot of clutter. But when we are trying to make the most of every room of the house, adding some space is crucial. But how can we make more space in every room of our home? Is it to do with the right hacks, or is it about keeping on top of tidiness?

The primary thing that a home should provide for any of us is a place that is ours, and to which we can return at the end of a day’s work feeling that we can relax. This is something that is recognised by pretty much everyone - indeed, on the other side of the Atlantic there is a saying that “an Englishman’s home is his castle”. In other words, when you’re behind your front door, you should always be able to feel secure, safe and comfortable.

Most homes have a fence or some kind of gate that prevents the front and back garden from joining up. This is because the designers of modern homes want to give homeowners as much privacy in their back gardens as they possibly can. What ends up happening is, they go too far. They essentially cut off the front of your home. That’s why if you’re having a barbecue, you’ll show guests in through your home and out onto the back garden. Or you might have to say ‘go around the back’ and then let them in after opening the locked gate. On the one hand, it's annoying, and on the other, you find that it might be better for your safety too. If you have a fence surrounding the rear of your home, then it's going to be tougher for any criminal to get to your back door right? But who said the fence has to disappear?

As your life changes and your family grows it makes sense that you will need your home to grow with you. We hear a lot on TV and home improvement shows about finding 'our forever home' and choosing somewhere that will be a place where you can live comfortably from then on. But sometimes, our dream forever home doesn't exist unless you build it yourself! Of course, this isn't always an option but that doesn't mean you can't turn your current home into something that fits your needs and can accommodate everyone who lives there.

A swimming pool is a fantastic addition to any home. Getting a pool installed can seem like a lot of hassle so you may be undecided whether to go ahead and get one. Getting a pool does require some practical considerations too. You will need to take care of it, by keeping it clean and safe to use, which may leave you wondering How Much Does Pool Maintenance Cost? If you have kids and pets, you will need to ensure the pool is safely secured with a fence and gate to prevent them from accidentally falling in, and make sure that kids are well-supervised at all times. Although there are practicalities to consider, there are also plenty of benefits of having a pool at home.

Winter is a cold but joyous time of year because it’s a season that’s full of festivities. Of course, the most important thing to get right before the holiday season is your house. You can’t control the weather, but you should be able to retreat to a nice warm home at the end of the day. You need to create a living environment that feels welcoming and keeps the whole family happy. So, it’s time to make some preparations.

Dull, boring, lifeless? That is how a home can start to feel after a while of living there. In fact, such emotions towards the place in which you live can cause you to feel as if it's time to pack your stuff and get moving. This being an action that can be both expensive and stressful. However, you don't actually have to move at all. You can refresh your property and make it feel new instead.
