Whether you choose to shower your affections on your partner, spouse, family or friends, why not ditch the red roses and symphony orchestra, and opt for a bit of a home makeover instead?
Adding to the appeal of your home will not only serve you well during the month of love but is also a worthwhile investment for further down the line. Should you ever want to for example, sell your property, entertain more, or escape to a place of solitude.
spruce up your home
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Whether you’re spending time with that special someone, practicing self-love, or reconnecting with friends and family – the right entertainment area can make it all possible. Extending your interior space outwards with a stylish patio or deck is one way to achieve this. Not only does it unite guests without the host having to disappear, it also broadens your living space and makes use of land that’s already available.
Our Flamed Granite Flagstone Range are perfect for more modern patios, staircases and pool areas. It’s also suitable for both indoor and outdoor use – beneficial for those looking for consistency throughout their home.
There’s no denying a fire pit’s ability to create a romantic outdoor ambience. The warmth and crackle of the flames truly do awaken all your senses. For those looking to spend Valentine’s Day with a loved one, a fire pit is a great choice! And just as appealing for families who enjoy time spent outdoors or for friendly gatherings where secrets and laughs are on the menu.
Create the ideal focal point outside with our Cotswold Bullnose Range. Its soft, rounded profile and perfectly finished edges make it ideal for supporting a fire pit.
Pools are another addition that adds a whole lot of value to your property. Not to mention their ability to keep you sane during our notoriously hot summer months. Pools also make for common areas where guests or lovers can spend time together in a relaxed environment. Having one also means you can prepare for the ultimate (romantic, or not) staycation at a moment’s notice.
If a natural, earthy look and feel is what you’re trying to achieve, then our Wood Wave Flagstone Range is a good option. They offer the aesthetic appeal of timber but without the maintenance of real wood and they’re slip-resistant.
An inexpensive way to spruce things up at home is with landscaping and architectural accessories. Again, you’re making use of space you already have to create a haven for you and your loved ones. Embracing the outdoors also comes with a variety of benefits, namely: it reduces stress, improves your mood, and boosts energy levels. All of which are sure to serve you well during the month of love and beyond.
Garden edging is a good place to start as it can add style and sophistication to your outdoor area without any of the admin. Our Rope Edging Range for example, installed upright with the rope detail facing the lawn, is a great way to keep your flowerbed shape and size in check, while creating interest in your garden.
Once you’ve decided on an area to update, seek advice from a professional to ensure the job is done right. The right partner will guide you on the best materials to use to ensure visual appeal, functionality, year-round longevity and will make you fall in love with your home again.
