Why I am contemplating having artificial grass

*Collaborative post.

We are currently contemplating having artificial grass in our garden because of all the issues we are experiencing with our lawn. Some parts of the lawn are not growing properly and it has been an issue since day 1. We have tried different ways to take care of it but all the extra care and attention we are giving it is not doing much. The builders even had the lawn relaid so many times but after a few months, it ends up looking horrible.

I have heard a lot about the benefits of artificial grass and I am contemplating having one in our garden. Artificial grass is exactly what it says on the tin; its artificial so no treating or mowing needed. Which is why it has become very popular today.

Here are some of the amazing benefits of artificial grass for the garden

 

No nurturing required

Unlike the real grass, artificial grass needs no nurturing, which is amazing. The low maintenance aspect of artificial grass cannot be over emphasised. It saves time and effort, and as you don’t need to treat or mow it. If you ever need to clean it, a quick sweep or spray with hose pipe would do the work. Some people even clean their artificial grass with a vacuum cleaner!

 

It is a beauty

I love how beautiful artificial grasses look. They are beautifully naturally, so no extra work required. I also love how real they look regardless of the season. In summer, when other lawns are looking burnt and worn out, this type of grass still looks green and great!

There are various pricing options

There is a product for everyone and every budget. There are loads of cheap artificial grass available, but remember you get what you pay for. So ensure you buy from reputable suppliers only and go for the type you are sure would work great for your garden. It is also a good idea to go for suppliers like Grass Direct that offer free samples. That way you have a true feel of the quality of grass you are getting before you go ahead with it.

 

You can have the grass laid in unusual places

The beauty of having this kind of grass is that you can have it laid in your garden, balcony, rooftop, patio, and pretty much anywhere you want. Your decorating skills can really come into play as this type of grass allows you play around with it.

 

What do you think of these benefits? Do you have an artificial grass in your garden?

How to Update your Bathroom Decor

*Collaborative post.

 

With winter almost over and spring around the corner, I have started thinking about doing some spring cleaning and home improvements. The first on my list is the bathroom. I have started looking at various bathroom decor and how to make the most of our little bathroom space. If you are looking at updating your bathroom decor, here are some easy ways to make some improvements on a budget.

A lick of paint

Painting the walls in your bathroom is the easiest way to update your bathroom. We recently painted one of the bathrooms and the lick of paint literally transformed the bathroom completely. The paint on the wall was already chipping off, so the lick of paint was needed.

 

Add some space and light with a stunning bathroom mirror

Adding a bathroom mirror in your bathroom is a quick and easy to way to update the look in your bathroom. A bathroom mirror not only beautifies the room, it also adds some space and light to the room. It literally opens up the whole room, making the space appear bigger, which is great. Who doesn’t like a bright airy bathroom?

Add some storage

I don’t like clutter at all. It gives me a headache. So storage is very important to me. You can easily update your bathroom with some sensible storage. Apart from the fact that good storage makes the bathroom look good, it also gets rid of all the mess and clutter. A bathroom tallboy, mirrored storage cabinet or vanity unit would work great as storage.

 

Install a towel rail

A good-looking towel rail is a great way to update your bathroom. It is such a functional addition to the bathroom decor. It provides extra heat output and extra storage for towels, bath robes and all the other bits.

 

Renew the tile grout

This is one of the easiest way of improving the look of your bathroom. M did this some weeks ago, and it completely changed the look of our shower cubicle. The shower cubicle usually looks tacky when the clean lines of the grout is discoloured. The best way to get rid of the discolouration is by getting rid of the old grout, the next step is to refill and point with new compound.

My Obsession with Homes Under the Hammer

*Collaborative post.

 

I have an obsession with Homes Under the Hammer. It is one property show I love watching on BBC. I have been a fan of this show for many years now, Been loving it long before we became home owners. My obsession is so serious that I watch this show everyday and play catch up on BBC iPlayer when I miss it. I remember daydreaming about owning homes or at least a home to start with in the UK. It is amazing we now own our home, but building a property portfolio is still a dream. I hope to change that dream to a reality one day, and I know I can with hard work, planning and determination.

Why do I Like Homes Under the Hammer So Much

I think the show is brilliant. I love seeing deadbeat homes transform into luxurious houses. The whole auction and renovation process is very interesting. It is amazing to see how much a deadbeat house is worth and how much money and times goes into renovating it. Seeing the profit margins motivates me even more to get into the property business as soon as we can.

The fact that a house can be easily transformed with some tiles/carpets, blinds, beautiful decor, paint, lean to conservatory, French doors, and more is great. It makes me want to step up my DIY skills. I have seriously improved when it goes to DIY. Some months ago, I couldn’t even use a screwdriver properly when I had to change the batteries in the kiddies’ toys, but now I can. With things like this, it takes determination, and I am determined to be better at doing home improvements around the house.

Our plan is to paint some of the rooms in the next few months, and I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty. Most of the homeowners that appear on Homes Under the Hammer do a good portion of the home improvements themselves to save money, and I don’t blame them. In order to increase the profit margins, you have to be able to do some of the work.
