Antique-effect fireplace accessories donít simply provide a function when needed, They add to the look of the room.
Itís the time of year when we invite family and friends from all over the country, and beyond, to come together and celebrate the season of goodwill. Itís also the time of year that we line our presents up, excitedly, under the tree. So what can we do to ensure that our guests enjoy the occasion? And how can we keep those presents safe until the big day?
Take a look at the list below and discover ways to make your home as welcoming as possible to invited guests, while ensuring that they arenít too welcoming to the wrong people.
- Draught Proofing
A nasty draught from a door or a window could provide guests with a chilly reception, but thatís not all. Untreated draughts are one of the major causes of excess utility bills; since homeowners crank up the heat to compensate.
To ensure your guests are snug and warm, Door Furniture Direct supplies a wide range of draught excluders, dropseals, trims and door thresholds, as well as draught proof letter boxes. Amongst the most popular products available from Door Furniture Direct this year, however, are the small yet mighty Keyhole Draught Excluders.
Few homeowners are aware of just how problematic a keyhole draught can be, but these small and inexpensive additions to the front door can cut them out altogether.
- Fireside Accessories
The fireplace is amongst the most iconic image of yuletide lore as Santa Claus makes his way from one home to the next bestowing gifts via the Chimney. Most households transform their living areas with tinsel and baubles and wall hangings, but some traditional fireside accessories can add to the atmosphere of the setting.
While the roaring fireplace might be a thing of the past, for the most part, a range of expertly crafted, antique-effect fireplace accessories donít simply provide a function when needed. They add to the look of the room.
At the Door Furniture Direct online store, shoppers will find an array of fireside tongs, pokers and kettle stands.
- Weather Trims and Door Thresholds
Less a Christmas accessory than a winter essential, weather trims and Stormguard thresholds collect water at the door threshold, and are particularly useful with inward opening doors, where floors and carpets could be damaged by heavy waterlogging.
If there is one thing that we can guarantee that the festive period will bring, it isnít snow; itís rain. But with weather trims and Stormguard door thresholds, entrance ways will be safeguarded from the elements.
Available in aluminium or gold effect, weather trims are barely visible at the foot of the door but can be chosen to match any door and door surround. Explore the range in full today.
- Door Security
Door security products like viewers, locks and chains are important all year round, but theyíre particular necessary in the run up to Christmas when many homes are a goldmine of expensive Christmas presents.
Most front doors already have door security features in place but now is the perfect time to address any niggling issues. Broken chains and locks can be replaced with minimal expense and installing them is a lot simpler than many people realise.
Door Furniture Direct regularly publishes helpful How-To Guides on the companyís official site, filled with detailed instructions and straightforward images to ensure that you can DIY your way to a Happy Christmas.
- Window Security
Just as important as door security products, window security, such as replacement uPVC window locks and handles, are a must. But thereís more to window security than keeping burglars at bay.
The Penkid Window Restrictor is a simple device which limits the distance to which a uPVC window will open. At the time of year when visiting children might be running around the house, these handy devices can give you peace of mind.
Once again, theyíre simple to install, and theyíll ensure that the younger and more vulnerable members of the family are safe during yuletide celebrations.
