Preparing for cooler days

IF you own a property in Tenerife, but don’t live here permanently, chances are that the period when you are most likely to come out is now, to avoid those cold, British winters. After all, it’s the best of both worlds! However, if you haven’t been in your property for a few months, you may […]

Using the colour matrix, for a designer look

THE problem with interior design is that you know when something looks nice, and when it doesn’t, but you don’t always know why there is a difference. And making mistakes can, obviously, be costly. Interior designers work in different ways. Sometimes, if you buy the furniture through them, the design element is included, so you […]

Sleep well!

WHETHER you live in Tenerife, spend a lot of time here, or rent your property out, the comfort and quality of the beds in your property will dictate how comfortable you are, and how much you enjoy your stay. Holidaying and living in Tenerife are all about quality of life and relaxing, so nobody wants […]

Are you sitting comfortably?

CHOOSING a sofa is a difficult decision, because they are expensive pieces of furniture, and there are almost infinite possibilities. You might think you know what you want, but then your eye is caught by a snazzy-looking, low-backed, leather number in a big retailer. But what happens when you get it home, and, either it […]

Wardrobe dressing

A WARDROBE is an essential piece of furniture in any home, and necessary for the storage of clothes, shoes and personal effects. If you are living in your property, you’ll probably need more space than if it’s used for holiday lets or rentals. But even people on holiday want to hang their clothes up and […]

Separating spaces

MOVING to Tenerife can mean making lots of adjustments to your lifestyle, often because many properties are more open-plan than back in the UK. In the UK, it’s common to have a separate dining area, kitchen and lounge, partly so that it’s easy to keep them warm. In Tenerife, you may find they are all […]

Your room outside

PARTICULARLY in Tenerife, where the weather is generally very good, you should think of your outside space as an extra room in your home, one which you should be able to use for the best part of the year. While many of us may not have a garden, patios and terraces can still make wonderful […]

Your home in Tenerife

Buying a holiday home in Tenerife is often the culmination of hard work and dreams. A property abroad presents an opportunity to relax in a different climate, and increase leisure and family time. However, the cost of buying the property, and the attached expenses, are considerable, so furnishings need to be organised in a cost-effective […]

Swimming-pool maintenance

THERE are many potential issues that can occur if a swimming pool is not correctly maintained. We are able to offer regular visits, and are happy to offer a free, no-obligation visit to discuss individual requirements, from a basic, maintenance package through to a full, pool renovation, if it has fallen into disrepair. Firstly, we […]

Keep your cool

AS the full heat of Summer approaches, it’s time to turn your attention to protecting your home from the powerful sun, and getting the best use out of your property’s exterior areas. We all love the good weather, and, for many of us, it’s the reason we chose to live on the island, but the […]
