Home & Garden

Exterior spaces

NOT all of us are lucky enough to have gardens and large outside spaces here in Tenerife, but most of us do have something, even if it’s just a small balcony. Whatever exterior space we do have, it’s an important area of the home; a little sanctuary, if you like, where a lot of time […]

Get organised!

THE main reason a home can look untidy mostly boils down to not having the right storage! We all have “stuff”, and there is no getting away from it. The fact is, it’s impossible, so we have to learn to live with it. Take, for instance, the office area. We all have mountains of paperwork, […]

Private rental property

IF you rent out your property, you sometimes need to take a critical look at it, in case it’s necessary to make any changes for the months ahead. Don’t lose sight of who is going to use the property. For example, if you are aiming for high-end rentals, you will need to supply good-quality furniture […]

Holiday time for everybody

IT’S hot! Everybody is on holiday! Salads and cool drinks are the order of the day. Shade and sea is all they need. Equally, you may well have some time off yourself, in which case it’s definitely the best time to relax, chill out and enjoy your property in Tenerife. Jobs such as remodelling or […]

Non-resident? You can still buy property here

BUYING a property in Spain for non-residents, including those in Tenerife and the other Canary Islands, can be difficult. But it is not impossible.

Lying at 1500 metres above sea level on the island of Tenerife, Vilaflor boasts the title of Spain’s highest village. Pine […]

A moment to reflect!

MOST of us think of a mirror as being essential in certain areas of the house; in the bathroom, for example, and maybe in the hall or bedroom to check your appearance before you go out. But, for interior designers, the mirror is a very versatile tool, and can do so much more than let […]

On a budget …

  WHATEVER the project may be at home, budgets can be hard to work from, especially here in Tenerife, where things can seem difficult and less accessible to someone who is used to the ways of life in the UK. The other unexpected difficulty, which ex-pats come across, is the time it can take to […]

If you can’t stand the heat …

MOST people come to Tenerife on holiday, or to live here, because of the great climate, but it’s that time of year again when it’s excessively hot, and you need to think about how to make your home as comfortable as possible. You will probably be aware that most original Canarian houses had very thick […]
