Most people agree that these strings of twinkling lights are stunning and can be draped on anything to enhance the feel. When it comes to commercial functions and events, Festoon lighting is on trend. These are well known for providing spectacular effects with Edison style string lights decorating the whole area.

Perfect for use in gardens, weddings, arenas, festivals, music venues or concerts delivering a wonderful ambience. Festoon lights are functional, decorative and can be used outdoors due to being waterproof. Magical and practical!

People love this type of lighting whatever the time of year, whether in the summer months or at Christmas. These enchanting lights make everything look better, and create a feelgood factor whether your having a quiet drink with a friend or organising a major bash.

verandasVerandas and sheltered home additions are extremely on-trend for many reasons, one of the biggest is of course the value of fresh air. Since the virus showed its ugly face over a year ago, we’ve all been trying our very best to stay safe. We’ve become familiar with terms like social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitizer etc. Experts agree that one of the most important aspects in staying safe and well is being outdoors. This is because the virus particles are widely dispersed through the air, and cannot infect as easily. With this in mind, homes, along with bars and restaurants etc have been quick to get verandas installed. Some of the other advantages of this type of sheltered addition include:

1. Larger Living Space

People love the extra space afforded by verandas, allowing them to enjoy their gardens all year round. This is even better if lighting and heating is added for the evenings or colder months.

2. Shelter from the Weather

Being outside in the rain or strong wind is no fun, but with verandas and glazed canopies it’s not as bad. You can take in the garden, have a cuppa, read a paper, check your phone etc while staying dry.

3. Higher Property Values

Alfresco living is loved by many, and it’s a well known fact that these home additions raise the value of a property.

4. Keeps the Party Going

Having some type of sheltered structure is perfect for extending outdoor parties and barbecues. Meaning a change in the unpredictable British weather doesn’t mean an end to the fun.

5. Clean Floors

Verandas are great for slipping your shoes off before entering the home, thus keeping carpets etc clean! They can also protect and extend the life of your timber decking.

6. Relaxation & Stargazing

Lots of people love sitting on the veranda in the evenings, gazing up at the stars through the glass roof.
