Pool Construction Tips

Hi, I'm Mandy. If you're looking for tips on pool construction, you've come to the right place. We've just had a new pool installed and I'm full of advice! When I started on our pool I thought it would be an easy build. Boy, was I wrong. I didn't know anything about building a pool apart from the fact I wanted one. Luckily, our construction company set me straight. They helped me work out how big the pool could be and they showed me which shape would suit our yard space. They sorted out permits and even gave me advice on fencing. To find out what I learned, read through my blog. Hope it helps!

Why laminate flooring is an excellent choice for your guest rooms

by Bessie Beck

When you have guests over, making them comfortable should be your top concern. Many people make the mistake of alienating their guests by giving them an abandoned room (which often feels cold and unwelcoming).

Making your guest room more comfortable (and a part of the rest of your home) will increase the comfort of your visitors. One way to do this is by changing the floor of the room. Cold concrete floors add to the isolation and discomfort of your guests. However, a warm flooring option — such as laminate — is an excellent way of breathing life into your guest room. Here are 4 reasons why laminate is the way to go.

1. Easily customisable 

Many people easily confuse laminate flooring with hardwood floors. This is because laminate is actually an engineered floor that can be customised to resemble many different flooring options.

Made from pressed wood, you can customise your wood laminate flooring to match the interior décor of your home. In this way, your guest room won't create the feeling of an abandoned extra space. Even if the rest of your home doesn't have laminate flooring, you can select from limitless colour and design options to create a matching theme throughout the home.

2. Laminate floors provide comfort

Laminate floors are also very comfortable to walk on. They're typically installed on top of a foam layer, giving a soft and welcoming feel to your guests. Even in cold weather, laminate floors don't become as cold as options such as concrete flooring. And because you can customise laminate to your liking, matching the floor with carpets, curtains and other interior elements is much easier to accomplish. 

3. A durable and low-cost option

Laminate flooring is one of the most cost-effective options in the market. With proper customisation, your guests will have no idea how much you were able to save while making their rooms appear elegant and stylish.

In addition to the affordable purchasing cost, installing laminate panels is a quick and easy process. Individual panels come prefabricated, and all you need to do is snap them together on top of the foam layer. You won't need to break the bank when having laminate floors installed.

4. Maintenance is as easy as A-B-C

Are you worried about keeping the guest room clean? Laminate floors will make your work much easier. These floors are durable and very easy to clean. You don't have to worry about stubborn stains, water damage or cracks. And because they're durable in nature, your guest room will remain in good shape for many years to come.
