GUIDE ... to home improvement

Top Tip IF YOU have a fireplace that isn’t in use and is open to the chimney above, it can be very draughty, but it doesn’t have to be. A chimney balloon is the best way to plug the gap, but if you don’t want to buy a balloon, you could try making a DIY version with a bin bag containing loft insulation or an old pillow. Whatever you use, make sure you remove it before using the fireplace. KEEP COLD OUT: A man fits weatherstripping tape to his door and window frames. It’s also important to get a letterbox brush draught excluder, pictured above right, to keep out the cold

Dodge the draught and keep your home warm S

USPENDED floors are one area where there’s often room for improvement. If you have a period house or flat with original floorboards, they’ll have a cavity underneath, which can make the room above draughty if the floorboards are exposed. Putting a rug or rugs on the floor will help, but you can do more. According to the Energy Saving Trust, insulating underneath the floorboards on the ground floor (only rooms above unheated spaces need to be insulated) can save you around £60 annually. Some suspended floors can be accessed from underneath (if there’s a cellar, for example), but if this isn’t possible, you could take up the floorboards to fit insulation. The downside of this is that it’s a big, disruptive job and you may break some of the boards in the process, or not be able to get them all up. You can also fill the gaps between the boards, which seems the obvious way to stop the draughts. However, walking on the floor is likely to dislodge at least some of the filler, so it could be a waste of time in the long run. If a room has a concrete floor, this can be insulated by fitting

Last week, we looked at the benefits of insulating your home’s loft and exterior walls, but there are other ways to keep the heat in and the cold out, says Julia Gray rigid insulation and then chipboard on top. The problem with this is that you have to remove the floor covering first, and the level of the floor will be higher, which may cause problems with the skirting boards, sockets and doors, etc, so it can be a big job. Another big job is making your home’s windows less draughty and more energy efficient, especially if you live in a period property that has the original windows. Replacing windows is expensive, typically costing several thousand pounds for a

house, but it is worth doing if you can afford to – the Energy Saving Trust says that swapping single-glazed windows for B-rated double-glazed ones could save you around £165 annually. Remember that double-glazed windows don’t have to be made of UPVC – there’s more choice of styles and materials than you might think, unless you live in a listed building or on ‘designated land’, such as conservation areas, where there are stricter rules about replacement windows (and doors). If you can’t afford to change the windows, or at least the glazing (sometimes you can replace single glazing with double glazing, or fit special heat-retaining glass to the existing windows), there are much cheaper ways to make windows more energy

MIND THE GAP: Exposed floorboards in a period home should be insulated to prevent draughts

efficient. These include fitting secondary glazing units or film (clear film you fix in place across the windows with tape). Another good DIY option is weatherstripping, which is draught-proofing tape that helps to fill the gap between the frame and the window’s moving parts. Original sash windows are notoriously draughty, and weatherstripping can make them less so, but consult a good DIY book or website to see how to apply it to sashes, or get a pro to do it, because it’s more complicated than with other types of window. In a similar way, brush draught excluders around exterior doorframes can be effective at keeping the cold out, as can a brush strip fixed to the bottom of the door – just cut it to fit and screw it in place. A ‘sausage’ fabric draught excluder will also help to reduce draughts, as a brush strip will only cover some of the gap – fit it too low, and it will drag on the floor. And don’t forget to fit keyhole and letterbox covers to stop cold air coming in there. For extra insulation at this time of year, it’s a good idea to fit a curtain pole above the door and hang a heavy curtain across it, especially if the door is partially or fully glazed. Measures like these should make your home cosier and help to reduce your heating bills, which is always welcome.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK TO MAKE original floorboards less draughty, try using Polycell Flexible Gap Polyfilla (£3.98, B&Q) to fill any gaps between them and the skirting boards. This filler is designed for gaps along skirting boards, window frames and doorframes because it flexes with movement. It can be painted over when fully dry and is surface dry in about an hour. Best of all, it’s less rubbery than most flexible fillers and so easier to work with and it can even be used outdoors, which is really useful.

First chance to see the show homes at Summerhill Park by JANET TANSLEY

T

HE wait is over for would-be buyers keen to see the show homes at Redrow’s latest Merseyside development. Properties at The Avenue at Summerhill Park in Thingwall Lane have been selling ‘off plan’ since the summer. Up until now purchasers have had to rely on floor plans or visit other Redrow developments in the region, but now they can view two fully furnished show homes on the Knotty Ash site. Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: “There’s a real buzz about Summerhill Park and people are excited about the show homes opening. “One of the advantages of buying in a development’s early stages is that there are more properties to choose from and buyers have a greater chance of securing a home in their preferred position. Plus, if you are buying early in the build process you have more likelihood of being able to personalise the interior.” She adds: “Nine customers have reserved properties at The Avenue at Summerhill Park ‘off plan’. Others were awaiting the opening of the three-bedroom Letchworth and four-bedroom Oxford show homes before making a commitment.” The three-bedroom Letchworth and four-bedroom Oxford show homes have been dressed to impress by professional interior designers. Externally the Letchworth may look like a 1930s semi, but inside it’s bright and modern. The open plan kitchen and dining room spans the width of the property with French doors that open onto the rear garden, offering lots of natural light and helping to bring the outside ‘in’. There’s a separate lounge, plus a laundry and cloakroom on the ground floor. The four-bedroom Oxford also has a combined kitchen and dining room, with the utility offering

MODERN: The new Oxford and Letchworth show homes at Summerhill Park boast bright, open plan rooms decorated by professional interior designers extra storage as well providing a dedicated space for the washer and dryer. In both properties there’s an en-suite to the master bedroom to complement the family bathroom. “A visit to the new show homes at The Avenue at Summerhill Park will enable purchasers to appreciate the layouts, quality and finish of our homes and see which best suits their lifestyle,” Claire adds. “Many will be pleasantly surprised at the high specification,

which includes integrated kitchen appliances such as oven and fridge freezer as standard. “Tall cabinets and extra wide drawers offer plenty of storage and, thanks to the soft close fittings, parents won’t have to worry about little fingers getting trapped.” Prices start from £179,995 for a three-bedroom semi detached Letchworth. ◆ For more information about the homes available see www.redrow.co.uk/summerhill or call 0151 345 3140. reader travel holidays.com

Gabrielle Fagan investigates the interiors themes that will be making an impact this year

COLOUR CRAZY: Fi bench, £1,100; Spring Floral panel by Catherine Stephenson, £120 and Wild Herb rug, from £225, John Lewis.

B

AG a butterfly, splash out on blues, whip up some wallpaper and show a well-turned leg if you want your home to be bang on trend this year. The good news is that embracing a look shouldn't mean a complete revamp because the trends are, in the main, fresh and interesting developments of existing decor interpretations. So French-style furniture with pretty, carved legs; florals; botanical designs featuring birds and butterflies; colour and wallpapers will continue to star. If they're already to your taste you may only need to add a few more accessories or a new statement piece to refresh a room and show off your style credentials. "French elegance is a key trend for spring," predicts Caroline Hodgson, home accessories buying manager for Barker & Stonehouse. Our love affair with florals endures, she says, and the new collections will range from vintage-style faded blooms through to watercolour effects and small prints with dainty daisies or camellias. "Whatever you do, don't miss out on the blues," she advises. "Denim, cobalt and sky blue all blend well and will create a cool and calming atmosphere. "In general, whatever your taste, the aim should be to conjure an atmosphere of tranquillity, serenity and sophistication so rooms are a sanctuary and retreat from the pressures and stresses of the outside world."

Turn Back Time

Nostalgia is always heightened when times are tough and continues to inspire present-day designs whether it's vintage style or the fashion for mid-century modern furniture. "Spring is all about reviving eras, from the 1920s through to the 1940s but with fresh interpretations," says Alice Duggan, head of home buying at Debenhams. "Designer Matthew Williamson creates a bright and eccentric take on a Forties country manor house style, whilst Julien Macdonald has keyed into 1920s art deco style and teamed it with vivid colour." Debenhams' own Heirloom collection is an eclectic spin on English style mixing floral, paisley and embroidered fabrics with quirky patterned metal chairs, botanical cushions and eye-catching accessories such as stags' heads and bookends.

Spot the trend: Butterfly Home by Matthew Williamson peach georgette bed linen set, from £55 for a double; set of three storage boxes, £30, all from Debenhams. John Lewis echoes mid-century style in its Pioneer collection with retro MissPrint mountains wallpaper, £59.95 a roll, and sleek Livingstone sideboard, £799.

Flower Power

Florals feature in all the major interiors collections, but in tune with our growing enthusiasm for colour and pattern they will be

h c n e r F o G l a r o l f d n a

even bolder and brighter in 2013. "This season, the trend for floral vintage pattern will be strong," predicts Josephine Bennett, senior design manager at Laura Ashley. "There's a strong trend for opulence and sophistication and layering of textures in interior."

Spot the trend: Palace Garden Chiswick wallpaper, from £28 a roll, and Chiswick printed cushion, £40, from Laura Ashley. Marks & Spencer's Colourfield collection features a rug from £75 and flower cushion, £19.50.

Natural World

Decor fluttering with birds, bees and butterflies and designs

featuring leaf prints reflect our passion to bring the great outdoors into our rooms, as well as a desire to blur the boundary between home and garden. "Our Botanist collection draws on our national obsession with gardening and it has a nostalgic element, as well as a feeling of nurture," says Theo Williams, head of the design studio at John Lewis. "Natural motifs feature with ladybirds, bees and butterflies on pretty pressed glass and enamelware. Blocks of pale colour are accented by pretty florals." Bed linen in the range is printed with hand-drawn birds, and knitted throws have a hand-crafted feel

with layered patterns and textures.

Spot the trend: Cow Parsley mineral wallpaper, £22 a roll, Wild Herb rug, from £225, and Garden coasters with butterfly design, set of four, £15, all from John Lewis. House of Fraser's delightful upholstered Garda chair, printed with butterflies, £599.

Dare to Bare

A pared-back, more masculine style featuring earthy tones and contrasts in textures is one of the strongest and most versatile trends for this year. Interpretations can include industrial style, with a rough hewn unfinished look, or a more

streamlined, contemporary approach using wood, stone and distressed leather but softened and warmed by touches of colour from blues to lemon yellows. "One of our key themes is Naturals, a furniture and accessories story of muted tones," says Sue Roberts, head of design for House of Fraser. "Simple and sophisticated, this trend of earthy browns and stony grey accessories mixed with walnut and oak furniture has a slight retro feel."

Spot the trend: Linea Naturals collection at House of Fraser includes a handsome dark wood Dean sideboard, £869, and accessories, a

Crazy for Colour

While a neutral palette always appeals as it's easy on the eye and compatible with most decor choices, colour is increasingly making an impression on our homes. Blues (think denim, cobalt and sky blue), deep greens, muddy pastels and lemony yellows are the top choices from the colour wheel for 2013, with colour specialists Pantone pronouncing that Emerald green will be the star shade. "I think 2013 will be a brave and colourful year in terms of interior decor," says Julie Hassan, senior buying manager for home at Liberty. "Amazon greens, fiery oranges, lagoon blues and sensual reds can be picked and paired according to how far an individual wants to go to embrace the dramatic trend."

Spot the trend: Liberty's beautiful printed fabrics start from around £65 a metre. Make a statement with an eye-catching emerald Florence sofa upholstered in vogue teal, currently on sale at £1,139 from Sofa Workshop. Check out House of Fraser's Urban Tribe bed linen, double duvet set, £60, with zigzag pattern in yellow, green and purple, and its Linea Nautical Pretty Denim double duvet cover set, £80.

Chic Elegance

Delicate detail, elegant period style and a muted colour palette all combine for a feminine-friendly style which is an enduring classic. "One of our new collections is a range of French-inspired occasional furniture and chairs called Aurelie," says Emma Mann, home and lifestyle design manager at Sainsbury's. "It features upholstered toile de jouy patterns in calming shades, grey and pale blue. This beautifully elegant furniture collection ushers in a classic French style which we think will be hugely popular this year."

Spot the trend: Aurelie French occasional chair, £498, Wingback bed, £889, from Sainsbury's. House of Fraser's Shabby Chic range includes the Primrose double bedstead, currently on sale at £999.

colour specialist for Graham & Brown. "The lighter side is cosy and fresh with country-inspired prints. Patterns are soft, feminine and flowers will once again feature heavily with classical trellis and scroll designs. “Colours will be soft and inspired by nature, ranging from duck egg and pale green hedgerow to wisteria and crocus." That trend contrasts sharply with one which walks on the dark side, featuring warm, dense shades, particularly grey through to midnight black, that may be brightened by flashes of blue or red.

Spot the trend: Graham & Brown's Spellbound wallpaper collection, from £44 to £69 per roll.

Work the Walls

Wallpaper has made a huge comeback over the last couple of years and the choice of designs is greater than ever, ranging from patterns, retro-designs echoing the Fifties or those brilliantly mimicking effects such as stone, brick and wood. "There's a definite light and dark side to the wallpaper story for spring 2013," says Paula Taylor,

Seeds of survival

With sub-zero temperatures upon us, the RSPB is advising people to make sure their bird feeders and tables are full of high-energy foods. Hannah Stephenson examines what's on offer

H

OW long is it since you filled your bird feeder or replenished the water in your birdbath? If you haven't done it for a while, there's no time like the present. “The sudden drop in temperatures across the UK will have been a big shock to birds' systems after spending the past couple of months with few worries in terms of food availability,” says Richard James, RSPB wildlife adviser. “Thanks to the recent mild weather, many natural food sources have been readily available and water has been easy to come by. Now the snow and ice are here, birds will need all the help they can get to survive the winter.” However, the range of bird seeds, fat balls and other so-called bird-friendly items can leave gardeners baffled as to what's best for our feathered friends. The RSPB suggests calorie-rich foods such as mixed seed, nyjer seed, fatballs, suet sprinkles, sunflower seed and good quality peanuts, as well as kitchen scraps such as mild grated cheese, rice and porridge oats.

SURVIVAL: A coaltit eating nuts in a snowy garden There are different mixes for feeders and for bird tables and ground feeding. The better mixtures contain plenty of flaked maize, sunflower seeds, and peanut granules. Small seeds, such as millet, attract mostly house sparrows, dunnocks, finches, reed buntings and collared doves, while flaked maize is taken readily by blackbirds. Tits and greenfinches favour peanuts and sunflower seeds. Mixes that contain chunks or whole nuts

are suitable for winter feeding only. Pinhead oatmeal is excellent for many birds. Wheat and barley grains are often included in seed mixtures, but they are really only suitable for pigeons, doves and pheasants, which feed on the ground and rapidly increase in numbers, frequently deterring the smaller species. Avoid seed mixtures that have split peas, beans, dried rice or lentils as again only the large species can eat them dry. These are added to some cheaper seed mixes

to bulk them up. Any mixture containing green or pink lumps should also be avoided as these are dog biscuit, which can only be eaten when soaked. Don't feed the birds cooked fat from roasting tins and dishes, because the fat may have blended with meat juices which leaves a mixture prone to smearing, which is not good for the birds' feathers, and is a breeding ground for bacteria, the charity warns. Polyunsaturated margarines and vegetable oils are also unsuitable as

Best Of The Bunch Corkscrew Hazel (Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’) ITS curiously twisted branches look particularly striking against a backdrop of a clear blue sky and it provides a conspicuous, if a little spooky, edge to the winter scene. While many hazels are too big to grow in the average garden, the corkscrew hazel is slow-growing, so will take years to reach its eventual height of 5m. In February the stems will be further decorated by the 5cm (2in) long pale yellow hazel catkins. It is ideal underplanted with early flowering bulbs and marble-leaved arums and will grow in sunny or semi-shaded sites in fertile, well-drained soil. Remove suckers and any unwanted stems in the winter.

birds need high levels of saturated fat to retain the high energy to keep warm, and soft fats can be smeared on to feathers, destroying the waterproofing qualities. Lard and beef suet on their own are fine as they re-solidify after warming and are not as prone to bacteria breeding because they are pure fat. Never give milk to the birds because it can result in serious stomach upsets or even death. They can, however, digest fermented dairy products such as mild grated

Things to do this week ● Protect winter-flowering bulbous irises in the garden from severe cold or damp. ● Brush snow off the branches of shrubs to avoid the branches snapping under the weight. ● Start forcing pots of lily bulbs for Easter and early summer flowering. ● Give perennial vegetables such as asparagus and artichoke a dressing of general fertiliser, which will have time to wash down to their roots, ready for the new growing season. ● Sow an early crop of salad onions, such as 'White Lisbon', in a greenhouse border. ● Apply a winter wash over your fruit trees and bushes to stop overwintering pests in their tracks. ● Continue to plant bare-root trees while they are dormant, if weather permits and the ground is soft enough. ● Renew compost in permanent pots by scraping off the top couple of inches and replacing it with fresh compost.


for birds COLOURFUL: A robin at a snowy bird feeder in winter and, inset, a blue tit feeding on a coconut cheese, which may attract robins, wrens and dunnocks. If you want to give the birds coconut, only give them the fresh stuff in the shell, rinsing out any sweet coconut water before hanging it out, to stop black mildew emerging. Desiccated coconut should never be used as it can swell inside the bird, with fatal consequences. Cooked rice without added salt can be beneficial to birds during severe winter weather, while uncooked porridge oats are fine for many bird species. You can also put out small quantities of dry breakfast cereal. A supply of water is also essential for bathing and

preening. In freezing conditions birds become more dependent on water provided in gardens, since many natural sources are frozen over. The most effective way to keep the water in your garden from freezing is to pop in a light ball that will be moved by even a gentle breeze – a ping-pong ball is ideal. Alternatively, pour on hot water to melt the ice to make sure the birds can get to it. Put out enough food and you may see a wider variety of visitors during the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch (Jan 26 and 27), the world's biggest wildlife survey. ◆ For more information, visit www.rspb.org.uk

House sales at six year high UK house sales increased last year to the highest levels seen since 2007, with lenders claiming that things are looking up for mortgage borrowers. There were 932,000 completed transactions last year, marking a 5% increase on 2011, according to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) figures. Meanwhile, the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) outlined evidence to show why it believes that the “shutters really are coming up” in the mortgage market. In its latest “news and views” release, the CML said: “Overall, there has been a marked sense of improvement in the

mortgage lending landscape over the past year, which we forecast will continue in 2013.” It added: “We estimate that there has been a slow and steady increase in the proportion of first-time buyers buying without assistance from 32% of all first-time buyers in 2009 to 36% in 2012.” The CML said that it expects mortgage lending to reach £156 billion this year, compared with an estimated £143 billion during 2012. The HMRC figures showed that the number of sales in 2012 was still almost half the level seen five years earlier. However, sales picked

up in the final quarter of last year to 237,000 transactions, showing a 4% increase on the previous quarter and a 2% rise on the same period in 2011. In a sign of the sales numbers to come, mortgage approvals to home buyers have been increasing in recent months, which analysts have put down to the introduction of a multi-billion Government scheme in August to kick-start lending. The number of mortgages on the market has been on the rise and lenders have been slashing their rates since the Funding for Lending scheme was launched.

Good enough to eat Garlic WE have garlic in so many dishes these days that it's not difficult to justify the little time and effort it takes to grow your own. Buy bulbs that are certified virus-free from seed merchants rather than planting one you've bought from a supermarket because the results may be disappointing if you cut corners. Break up the bulb and plant the cloves in prepared, well-drained ground in a sunny spot, placing them 15cm apart and pointed end up, so the tip is just covered with soil. Cover them with cloches in frosty weather. Each one will produce a whole bulb which should store until the following spring. If you live in a cold area, speed up the process by planting the cloves in divided seed trays in multi-purpose compost, water in well and place them in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. They should be ready for planting out in March or April. In dry spells, keep garlic well watered or you may find the resulting bulbs don't keep for very long.

3 ways to ... Save plants in windy gardens

1

Avoid plants with big leaves and those that come into flower early in the season because they are more vulnerable to wind damage.

2

Protect vegetable plots with windbreak netting, as wind will slow plant growth by increasing evaporation, and keep new plants well watered.

3

Try to grow fruit crops against sheltered walls because pollinating insects avoid windy areas.

£6.5bn boost for first-time buyers FIRST-TIME buyers have been given a boost after Britain’s biggest mortgage lender pledged to lend £6.5 billion to help people into their first home in 2013. Lloyds Banking Group, which owns Halifax, said it hoped its commitment will mean 60,000 people get on to the property ladder by the end of this year. The figure is an increase from last year, when the group said it would lend £5bn and get 50,000 people into their first home. While the group has not yet disclosed full-year figures, it said that by September it had helped 40,000 customers to buy their first home. The pledge will be delivered through a range of products, including its Lend A Hand scheme, where a

mortgage is backed by a friend or family member’s savings. Halifax now provides one in three mortgages on affordable housing schemes, including shared ownership and shared equity. The group also provides more than 40% of funding for the Government’s NewBuy scheme, where lenders and the Government secure the mortgage on a new-build house or flat. Lloyds’ pledge comes after the latest figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders showed first-time buyer numbers were up by almost a quarter year-on-year. Lenders have been slashing their mortgage rates in recent months and are offering some of their cheapest ever deals following the launch of the

Funding for Lending scheme to boost lending by giving banks access to cheap finance. Lloyds has already drawn £3 billion from the Government scheme. Barclays announced a new deal for mortgage borrowers with smaller deposits earlier this month and has now started offering a mortgage allowing parents to help children get on the property ladder with a deposit of just 5%. Stephen Noakes, mortgage director at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “The recovery in the housing market rests on growth in the wider economy. We remain committed to getting things right at the start of the chain, creating liquidity in the housing market and helping more people to get on the property ladder in 2013.”

UYERS in Liverpool got a glimpse inside the newly refurbished West Tower apartments last week, when Delph Property Group opened the doors to the show apartments and officially launched the scheme for sales.
