The COVID-19 pandemic has put a lot of our summer plans on hold, but there is a silver lining! Being stuck at home has given homeowners the opportunity to renovate their gardens and create a little slice of heaven that they can enjoy all year round.

We asked 400 people to complete a survey about the renovations they'd done in their home since the coronavirus pandemic started. Here you can see the responses to the question: Have you made any additions to your garden because of the COVID-19 lockdown measures? 

We gave 16 options for respondents to choose from and allowed them to tick any number of answers (including none at all). Here are the results...

leicester city football club

We recently supplied porcelain paving for Leicester City FC's new training grounds in Seagrave. The ultra-modern training complex will be the home of Leicester City FC for years to come, so we were delighted to play a part in its construction.

Just before Christmas, a news article was released by Leicester City FC showing the players great to see the players enjoying the first taste of their new surroundings.

Anyone who adorns the Club's crest will receive exceptional service as Leicester City honours a pledge to offer elite facilities to its players and staff.

Preparing for a Man United Match

At the time the news report was released (Christmas Eve), the players were readying themselves for a boxing day match against Manchester United. The team began their training day with breakfast in the new dining room (seen below), an area which boasts panoramic views of the training pitches and our porcelain paving slabs!

After breakfast, it was time to get to work. The team spent the rest of the morning working on their strategy for the Manchester United game.

Brendan Rodgers (LCFC's Manager) said this about the new grounds:

"“It’s the most significant investment in the Club’s history, if you think of everything they’ve done, the owners, since they’ve been here. This facility is going to help improve players, but also people. The essence of Leicester City – and I’ve really found this since I’ve been here – is a genuine want to develop people and help people, whether you’re a player or a member of staff.”

Our Contribution

We supplied over 400m² of our beautiful Concrete Silver paving for the project and we're so pleased with the results. Take a look at the video below to see the different spaces our paving was used in:

ysgol glantaf

We recently donated 40 m² of our popular 20mm Limestone Ivory paving to Ysgol Glantaf in Cardiff! They wanted to transform their outdoor area to make it more appealing and accessible for their students.

View Product: Limestone Ivory

As a company with roots in Cardiff, we were keen to help this fantastic Welsh school and give back to the community. We know that the children and staff at Ysgol Glantaf will get years of enjoyment out of their new garden space and we're so pleased with how it turned out.

What Ysgol Glantaf Said:

“We would like to say a big thank you – the garden is lovely and we have already spent a lot of time working and playing there. Having the garden has made a huge difference to us all. It is a safe place for us to have some fresh air and move about.”

The project was featured on an episode of Prosiect Pum Mil on the Welsh TV channel S4C that aired on Sunday 29th November. The programme's presenter, Trystan Ellis-Morris visited our showroom in Cardiff to discuss the project. To cover the necessary area, we gifted them roughly £1,200 worth of Limestone Ivory paving. We're so pleased we did because the finished space looks amazing

preparing your house for sale

If you're looking for a change of scenery and you think it's time to move house, then preparing your home properly can help you secure a quick sale. We've been working with homeowners to improve their indoor and outdoor spaces for years, so we know the positive impact that new flooring (or a new patio) can have. 

Competition is fierce on the housing market, so if you want your home to stand out you need to make sure it's clean and well presented. Here are a few things that we'd recommend you do before putting your house up for sale.

1. Clean and Tidy

People say that first impressions are everything and the first thing that people will notice when they come for a viewing is whether or not your house has been cleaned and looked after. General untidiness, dirt and grime can put someone off in a matter of seconds. To combat this, we'd recommend giving your house a thorough clean prior to any visits. This means:

  • Packing away children's toys
  • Putting shoes away in the cupboard
  • Hoovering the floors and carpets
  • Removing grubby fingerprints on windows

2. Fix and Replace

If you've been living in your home for more than a few years, there's bound to be a few things that need fixing and replacing. Whether it's something small like a faulty light switch or something more serious like a hole in the kitchen lino, investing in your home now will pay dividends when you come to sell it. 

Why not replace the old wooden deck in your garden with a chic, low maintenance patio? Or better yet, use our indoor/outdoor tiles to create a seamless transition between your home and garden. Using our modern porcelain paving to connect your home and garden will give the illusion of a bigger and more open living space which is sure to appeal to potential buyers. Plus, you (and the new owners) will benefit from a very low-maintenance space that will last for years to come - a worthwile investment indeed.

3. Kerb Appeal

So far, we've given you a few recommendations to improve your home and garden before you put your home up for sale, but we haven't discussed one of the most important factors - kerb appeal.

Kerb appeal is the way that your home looks from the street and is the very first thing that potential buyers will see whether they're driving past your home, or looking at the listing online. Spending a bit of time to improve the way the front of your home looks can help you attract more buyers. To improve your home's kerb appeal, we'd suggest:

  • Painting fences and gates
  • Neatening up the lawn and any outdoor plants/bushes
  • Installing a new path/walkway (or cleaning up the existing one)
  • Giving your front door a clean/new lick of paint

Can I move house during the coronavirus pandemic?

For most people, it is still perfectly possible to move home despite the current challenges of COVID-19. The main changes we've seen so far effect the way that house viewings and moving days work. 

Wherever possible, house viewings should take place via video, this limits the exposure that potential buyers and homeowners have with one another. If an 'in-person' house viewing does take place, the government are advising that the house is thoroughly cleaned before and after the viewing and that homeowners vacate during the viewing if possible.

On moving day, you are advised to disinfect your belongings (especially if a third party removal company are going to be helping you). When removal workers are in your home, you should stick to social distance guidelines wherever possible and wash your hands regularly. 

If either you or anyone involved in the transaction come down with COVID-19 symptoms, it's vital that you self isolate. This can, of course, slow down the house moving process but it's important for all parties that the move happens safely.
