Rock Solid Design in the Home

Rock Solid Design in the Home

Beauty may well be in the eye of the beholder, but style is something that we wish everyone had. Particularly when it comes to our homes. Here are some original and interesting interior design accessories cast in concrete that could give your home a stylish edge. Not Just for the Patio According to Gore Vidal: “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” Creating a truly stylish home requires bravery. You have to be willing to look a little beyond Ikea and B&Q for your inspiration, and you need the confidence to trust yourself to know that what feels great is often also what looks great. If you think concrete in the home should be restricted strictly to your patio, it’s time to think again. Concrete is increasingly making it’s way onto interior designers’ “must have” lists of creative materials. These new concrete cabinet or drawer knobs from Kast are the ultimate in stylish industrial chic. Concrete is making it’s way onto interior...

The Top House Selling Mistakes to Avoid

The Top House Selling Mistakes to Avoid

Thinking about selling your house? We asked some of our favourite Plymouth property experts for their top tips. Here is our definitive list of the Top House Selling Mistakes to Avoid in Plymouth. Share and enjoy! House Selling Mistakes 1: Avocado-Green Bathrooms It’s amazing how often the still hideous avocado bathroom suite crops up in houses for sale. If your bathroom is a tribute to the Seventies, it’s time to invest in an upgrade. Potential buyers will see it as an expense that they’ll have to undertake after purchase. If you want to sell, do it for them before you put your house up for sale, otherwise you’ll just end up driving them away. House Selling Mistakes 2: Swimming Pool Sounds great, doesn’t it? Being able to boast that your home has an outdoor pool sounds like you’d be bringing a little bit of California to Cattedown, but just think about it for a second. Our climate isn’t really suited to outdoor pools. Nine months out of the year it’s too...

Twelve Top Tips for Plymouth Property Buyers

Twelve Top Tips for Plymouth Property Buyers

For Plymouth property buyers, finding a new home is well known to be one of the most stressful activities that we can embark upon. There are many potential pitfalls. However a bit of knowledge sensibly applied can make the whole process much easier and safer. Follow my twelve top tips for property buying success in Plymouth or anywhere else in the UK. 1. Arrange to Have a Full, Detailed Survey Carried Out Don’t go for the basic Homebuyers Survey and Valuation (HSV) as this is very limited, and is only intended to assess if the property is worth the selling price and to pick up any obvious problems. With a basic survey they won’t check the wiring, drainage, or gas, and it may not be suitable for older or unusual buildings. A full Building Survey will be more expensive but a lot more detailed, and could help you avoid expensive errors, or raise problems which you could use to negotiate on the price. In addition check the Energy Performance Certificate to...

Swedish Interior Design Brings Beautiful Sound Proofing

Swedish Interior Design Brings Beautiful Sound Proofing

Take a look at these remarkably beautiful sound absorbing tiles from Swedish design studio Form Us With Love. There’s a classic European style to these environmentally friendly panels that could make you feel like you have your own Nordic Noir home. Called BAUX  Träullit, they form part of their interior design brand BAUX. The tiles are made of wood wool, cement and water. Styled with an elegant palette of muted colours, they create a moisture-resistant material which is remakably acoustically absorbent. We think interior designers will love them. The designers tells us: “BAUX is founded on the belief that building materials should be both surprisingly functional and remarkably beautiful”. They go on to say: “Benefits include lower energy costs, a reduced environmental impact and a stable indoor climate”. What do You Think? How do you feel about these panels? Have the designers produced a true mix of form and function? And even if they have, could you see these panels being used in Plymouth?...
