    Our homes are central to our lives. They’re just about the most important material possession we own and, without a doubt, where we feel most comfortable and act ourselves. We walk out of the front door and into the world before returning to our home at night, almost every single day. It is where we sleep, eat, relax and socialise. Homes are our safe havens; the place we feel most calm and at ease.

    For all these reasons and more, home safety is essential. Without a secure home, you cannot feel completely assured and, therefore, not completely comfortable either. Security helps us to feel relaxed and makes a home the inviting safe haven that we look forward to going to bed in each night. Security and comfort are essential aspects of life and without an adequately secure home, we cannot properly wind down after a day's work.

    Here are a few security issues that dictate if a home really feels homely and, more importantly, what you can do about them...

    If you’re selling your property, or just looking to improve its value, your home’s exterior is the first place you should assess. The walk up to the front door and how comfortable people feel approaching your home will immediately shape their first impression. If you’ve got a neglected door and entryway with rusty door furniture and overgrowing plants it’s quite obviously not going to have the most positive impact! Imagine it like you would a job interview. Employers make their decisions on job applicants in the opening few minutes, judging initial contact and appearance. Homebuyers aren’t so different and won’t take long to think “this house looks the business”, or think “this place is going to need a lot of work.”Read More

    As you are probably aware, padlocks are a portable lock made from hardened steel usually with a U-shaped shackle hinged at one end and a square body. A cylinder, pin-tumbler lock is located inside this body and opened with the correct key. Padlocks may be something we are very familiar with today and can be found in all different shapes, colours, and sizes but despite their ingenuity and durability padlocks are, in fact, not in the slightest bit a modern creation. The padlock boasts a great history dating back to antiquity all over the world. Let’s have a quick glance back through the years and see where this fantastic little lock originates from...Read More

    Our homes will usually contain our most treasured and expensive possessions, which means it can often be the target of burglars. However, it is not just material items that you lose when burglars enter your home. Your home is the place you spend most of your time and the place you return to each day to relax and rejuvenate. It needs to be a place where our worries are limited, but after a burglary, you lose your sense of comfort. You need to be on top of your home’s security for both peace of mind and protection of your belongings.Read More

    Last week, we discussed which front door colours to consider and what ideologies are tied to different colours. Choosing a front door isn’t all about colour, though, and anybody dissatisfied with their front door needs to know a bit more about how to give your door a new lease of life. We should go that extra mile further than just giving it a new colour. The front door is often described as the most important part of your home, and rightfully so. It is the front door that you are immediately drawn to when looking at a home, expressing the most about your house’s character than the rest of your exterior. It is here, therefore, where people make their first impressions. Be it dinner guests or potential buyers, your front door should always be standing with the right adornments to be warm and welcoming. So, here are five steps to a fresh new front door…Read More

Without it, the door would simply not stay closed. The tubular latch is often referred to as a mortice latch or tubular mortice latch.Mortice means that is fitted into a hole or recess in the wooden door. So why are there so many different types of latches on our e-Hardware website?Read More
