      Choose the Right Door Knockers with These 4 Helpful Tips

      leave a comment

        When it comes to making any changes at your property, you’ll want to carry them out in the most effective way. Handsome Handles deeply understand this, as they’re the leading supplier of door furniture to the Sheffield and Rotherham areas. As a result of this and the advice they regularly provide, you can feel confident in choosing them to make such alterations.

        Cost, style and the quality of the company you’re buying from are all important factors which can make a difference to the success you have. With that in mind, Handsome Handles have put together some useful tips which are worth your consideration when it comes to purchasing new door knockers:

        Your Existing Property Scheme and New Door Knockers

        Unless you’ve recently acquired a new build house, it’s likely that you’ll either be living or moving into premises that are already largely decorated. If your budget is limited then you may have to work with the existing decor, so blending in new door furniture with that needs to be done carefully. This is perhaps the most important thing to consider when it comes to buying your new door knockers.

        Material Choice is Vital

        The finish of your front, side and back doors will ultimately have a noticeable say on the door knockers you’re able to use. Handsome Handles present an abundance of options to ensure that they provide something for everyone. Designs made from polished chrome, satin nickel, black iron and many more materials are all included in their product stock.

        How will it feel

        As well as taking care of the aesthetical appearance of your new door knockers, it’s also useful for you to think about the ergonomics of them. These pieces of door furniture are particularly personal, as they require the conscious interaction of your visiting guests. A heavy black iron door knocker for example will have a very different feel to a slender polished chrome one.

        Consider the Unusual

        To really impress your guests you can always embrace the more unusual side of design; and door knockers present you with the ideal opportunity to do this. With both traditional and contemporary designs based on famous door knocker designs – such as lion heads and hands – there is something for everyone looking to make an impression with Handsome Handles’ products.

        Handsome Handles Door Knobs and Door Handles

        To find out more about any of the products discussed here, why not give Handsome Handles a call? Their experienced team will be able to guide you towards making the best decisions for you and your home.

              Shop Signs Sheffield Announce New Shopping Area in Sheffield

              leave a comment

              Be Sociable, Share!

                As shop sign makers in Sheffield, we’ve commented before on the many plans that Sheffield Council have dreamt up and then shelved over the past few years. It will be interesting to see if this project gets off the ground, as many others have fallen to the wayside for various reasons. The reaction from Sheffield residents is understandably cool; they’ve seen plans announced before that have never materialised, and many are sceptical about the future of these new developments.

                According to a recent article in the Sheffield Star, new plans have been announced for a £480 million shopping district that is set to transform Sheffield’s city centre. Streets such as Pinstone Street and Cross Burgess Street will be home to new contemporary fashion stores, setting the tone for the whole of the city centre. In addition, there will be a new anchor department store, along with plenty of new retail and leisure outlets.

                Shopping Area in City Centre

                Simon Green, who is Sheffield Council’s executive director for place commented on the plans, saying that they will provide a new, attractive shopping area for the centre of Sheffield. “The design merges with Sheffield’s award-winning public spaces and world renowned cultural assets – including City Hall, The Crucible and The Lyceum theatres – and links key retail pitches in the city centre from The Moor through to Fargate. This will complement the new shopping facilities and provide food and drink, office and residential space to extend the city centre’s attraction as an evening entertainment option.

                Sheffield was ranked as 43rd in the UK in a recent retail study, alongside towns such as Northampton and Stoke on Trent. But the new plans will hopefully see it jumping to 32nd. The scheme is also expected to boost business for other popular shopping areas in the city, for example the Devonshire Quarter and The Moor. According to the newspaper, the council is currently in conversation with potential strategic development partners, and is hoping to announce their chosen partner in autumn of this year.

                Sheffield Shop Sign Makers

                As professional manufactures and installers of shop signs Sheffield, Image Sign Studio are hopeful that the new plans will materialise and the centre of the city is given the attention it really needs and deserves. It would also be a fantastic opportunity to help the businesses get started with professional, quality shop signs, something which we are experts in!

                    Bold, Colourful Buttonholes

                    These orange calla lilies really set off the green of the foliage in these buttonholes to make a modern, colourful statement. Calla lilies are an unusual choice for a buttonhole, but the rich orange fading into pale yellow made a beautiful addition to the dark suits of the groomsmen.

                    Rustic Wild Flowers

                    There’s something really quaint and pretty about these floral centre pieces. Tied with natural raffia string and placed in an assortment of vases and jugs, this wedding truly nailed the rustic look with dried ears of corn and delicate wild flowers.

                    Diamante Embellishments for Bouquets

                    This bouquet of white roses is beautifully classic and elegant, and if you look closely, you’ll see that at the centre of each flower, there is a tiny diamante pin. This is a fantastic way of adding a touch of glamour to your bouquet, and works really well when the colour scheme for the flowers is kept fairly simple. The cluster of traditional pearls and sparkly crystals as a focal point makes this bouquet a really glamorous choice.

                    At James Davies wedding photography Nottingham, they have the pleasure of photographing a great many weddings. It’s always lovely to see how couple’s have expressed themselves with their choice of clothes, accessories, favours and flowers.

                      Reduce Carbon Emissions from your Home with an Air Source Heat Pump

                      leave a comment

                      Be Sociable, Share!

                        As installers of air source heat pumps in Yorkshire and throughout the UK, Phaseline Renewables know that there are many great reasons to think about having an air source heat pump installed in your home, both financial and environmental.

                        Carbon Emission Savings

                        Depending on which fuel you are replacing, you reduce your carbon emissions considerably by installing an air source heat pump. The carbon emission savings can be as high as 3 to 10 tonnes per year. As air source heat pumps take approximately a quarter of the amount of energy to produce the same level of heat for the building, their use reduces the pressure on fossil fuel stores. And if a renewable source of electricity is used to power them, they do not produce any carbon emissions at all!

                        Air as a Fuel

                        Unlike boilers that require gas to run, or heating powered by electricity, the primary fuel used for air source heat pumps is air. Burning fossil fuels to provide your home with heating and hot water creates carbon dioxide, which is bad for the environment because it adds to the green house effect, which has an impact on global climate temperature. Air, on the other hand, is freely available and can be used to create energy with no negative impact on the environment.

                        Climate Change Targets

                        The installation of an air source heat pump will contribute to the UK’s 2050 target to reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. This legally binding climate change target has been put in place to help the UK become less reliant on imported fossil fuels and less exposed to higher energy prices in the future. Low-carbon technologies such as air source heat pumps will make an important contribution to the greenhouse gas reduction targets.

                        Air Source Heat Pumps RHI Payments

                        In addition to environmental benefits, there are also significant financial benefits to the installation of an air source heat pump in your home. You may be able to receive substantial regular payments for the heat you generate using an air source heat pump through the Renewable Heat Incentive. This scheme offers homeowners a financial reward for installing renewable heat technologies such as air source heat pumps.

                              Social Media Management Sheffield Discuss the Value of Pinterest

                                In addition to accounts for personal users, Pinterest also allows businesses to create business pages that they can use to promote their company online. These pages could be described as ‘virtual shopfronts’, allowing Pinterest users to browse items for sale on their website. And it’s big business; brand studies have continued to show that Pinterest is more effective at driving salesthan other forms of social media. As well as images, business pages can also include various data, topics and information such as prices of products, ratings of movies or ingredients for recipes.

                                How Pinterest Works

                                It’s free to sign up, and Pinterest users can upload, save, sort and organise images, or ‘pins’ through collections known as pin boards. Users can browse the content of others, and save individual pins to their own pin boards using the ‘Pin it’ button. If browsing a website other than Pinterest, images can be pinned to users’ pin boards using a ‘Pin it’ button that can be downloaded to the bookmark bar on your web browser. Users can also ‘repin’ pins from others on their own pin boards.

                                Social Media Marketing World 2015

                                Last month, San Diego hosted the “Social Media Marketing World 2015″ conference, where several social media professionals shared their expertise on established and developing trends in social media. According to the conference, Pinterest has been dubbed ‘the new Google’, due to the fact that it has a powerful search which many people actually turn to before the search engine giant. It might sound unbelievable, but the reason for this is that many people simply prefer the visual search results that Pinterest offers. Pins on Pinterest also have great longevity too, for example, if you share a pin today, it will still be coming up in search results weeks, months and even years later.

                                Sheffield Social Media Management Services

                                As the 4th most popular social media channel in the world and an invaluable tool for driving sales, it’s never been more important to get to grips with Pinterest and start reaping the benefits.

                                  Replacement of a Coal Fired Boiler with a Biomass Boiler

                                  leave a comment

                                  Be Sociable, Share!

                                    Mr and Mrs Bligh approached Phaseline Renewables in the hope that they would be able to replace their old and costly coal fired boiler. After giving their expert advice and opinion to on the matter to the couple, they decided to opt for an OkoFEN 15Kw manual fill system.

                                    Biomass Boilers in Domestic Properties

                                    Biomass pellets are made using compressed dry sawdust or wood shreds. They are compressed under a high amount of pressure until the lignin softens and binds the material together. Pellets usually have a very low level of moisture, typically below 10% and a very high volume energy density. Because they are very clean to burn and flow easily into a system, they are ideal for domestic applications and schools. The pellets are also easy to store and don’t take up much room, so can easily be stored in outhouses, sheds or garages.

                                    The biomass boiler was installed in their garage as they had sufficient room, with pipework going underneath their patio to the utility where the current boiler is. This worked well for them as the modern pipework almost eliminates heat loss, which ensures that the system remains efficient even though it was lagged from one room to another.

                                    Manually Filled Pellet Boiler

                                    The boiler is manually filled using 10kg bags of pellets which are delivered on one tonne loads of a pallet.  Mr and Mrs Bligh’s biomass boiler will require filling every 2-3 days in the winter months, but only every 2-3 weeks in the summer months, and will provide of their heating and hot water.

                                    Saving Money on Fuel

                                    Mr and Mrs Bligh are subsequently £3000 a year better off. They are saving a substantial amount on the fuel as they no longer need to use coal as a source of fuel, and they are also receiving money from the government led scheme the renewable heat incentive. The payments they receive from the renewable heat incentive are also tax free and index linked.

                                    Why not use Phaseline’s renewable heat incentive calculator to see how much money you could save on fuel, and how much your biomass boiler system could generate for you?

                                      Specialist Shops to be Replaced with Flats on Devonshire Street Sheffield

                                      leave a comment

                                      Be Sociable, Share!

                                        According to the Sheffield Star, the specialist shops on Devonshire Street will be replaced with flats and other shops, which has caused massive public outcry in opposition to the plans. Objectors to the demolition say that the impact on the area means that the street will become ‘like every single high street in the country’ and that it would be ‘utter madness to demolish one of the truly individual parts of Sheffield.’

                                        Image Sign Studio recently reported on the plans to demolish a number of shops on Devonshire Street in Sheffield, a popular area of the city centre with an eclectic mix of independent retail shops and quirky boutiques. As experts in the design and manufacture of shop signs Sheffield, they have been keeping a close eye on the developments of this story, and are sad to announce that the Sheffield Star have reported that despite nearly 20,000 objections, the shops will be knocked down.

                                        The Devonshire Quarter

                                        A report to the planning committee says “Though occupiers of the existing retail units perfectly reflect the city’s aspirations for the Devonshire Quarter and undeniably have a part to play in creating an attractive, viable and varied city centre, the planning system does not exist to protect the private interests of one person against the activities of another. Provided a retail frontage is retained, the loss of the specific businesses is not a planning matter.”

                                        Opposition to Planning Application

                                        Coda Planning, agent for the developers Primesite Ltd insist that the development would ‘rejuvenate’ a block falling into ‘disrepair’ and improve the area. According to Sheffield Council, the online petition was the largest ever connected to a planning application since the Council began keeping logs, and raised a huge 18,337 signatures. Unfortunately, planners say that according to the law, only views based on ‘material planning considerations’ can be given weight, meaning that the buildings will be destroyed and replaced regardless of the signatures received in opposition.

                                        As professional makers of shop signage Sheffield, Image Sign Studio thinks it’s a great shame that this vibrant and eclectic area of the city will be replaced with flats and other shops. The director of Coda Planning has assured Sheffield residents that the building’s design will respect the street’s character and allow occupancy to continue.
