About Me
Harry's Home Improvement Blog

Hello, my name is Harry and this is my home improvement blog. Welcome! On this blog, I will be discussing many different home improvement and construction topics. I should explain that I am not a professional contractor. However, I have just come to the end of a home renovation project which took over 2 years to complete. During that time, I worked with dozens of different contractors in order to get my house into shape. I have spent hours working alongside plumbers, electricians, surveyors and roofing specialist. I learnt so much about their different trades that I decided to start this blog.

Ready For Your New Home? New Trends That Will Keep You Away from Normal!

In modern economies, owning a home is not only a good investment but also a cost-saving plan that will keep you from the soaring rent prices. Building your home is an even better alternative because you get to customise the house to suit your specific needs. Many people settle for ordinary things without thinking much about the little things that they can add to their homes to turn them into gems. In this piece, you will learn a few modifications you can do to make your home stand out from the crowd. Here they are.

Sunrooms

Sunrooms also go by the name solarium or patio rooms. Their designs allow you to benefit from the one thing most people desire in their indoor space — good lighting. Sunrooms will let in lots of sunlight while shielding you effectively against inclement weather. Typically, these rooms rely on affordable construction materials and design elements to enclose patios. Some of the popular materials used for this purpose include featherweight roof panels, aluminium beams and single-pane glass. The set-up ensures that many beams of natural light hit your interior space and keep the place bright.

Skylight Windows

If you are struggling to deliver lots of natural space into the interior space, you still have a few tricks up your sleeve to get what you want. Some rooms will not have the best lighting because of the orientation of the house, the surrounding trees and other obstructions. Skylight windows are a clever way of getting light into such rooms. Here, you fit a translucent or transparent window panel on the roof immediately above the room with poor lighting.

Heated Floors

You can also make your home unique by guaranteeing a warm space for your occupants at all times. A heater is the secret ingredient. It is your best bet if you want to beat the winter cold and supplement the HVAC system of your home. Initially, heated floors were popular in bathroom areas, but they are now extending to the rest of the living space.

Modem building techniques give you a couple of options for heating your floors. You can use a water-based system or an electric system. Warm water systems come with interconnected pipes that radiate heat and warm the floor they are in contact with. Electric heaters, on the other hand, employ high-resistance wires that generate heat. The heat then radiates through the floor.
