Choosing between a swing gate vs a sliding gate for your home

It may not exactly be one of the most pressing decisions you have to make in your life, but there are still some factors you should consider when it comes to choosing between a swing gate and a sliding gate for your home.

Concerned about space? If space is an issue for you, a sliding gate will most likely be your best bet. Swing gates will take up much more space due to the fact that they swing outwards/inwards, whilst sliding gates will take up very little space. A sliding gate may also be a wiser option if you’re worried about scratching cars or other nearby objects, for example.

After something more modern? As a whole, sliding gates tend to look a lot more contemporary and streamlined than their swinging cousins. Depending on the sort of look you’re after when it comes to your home and garden, we would say that swinging gates tend to suit more traditional styles, whilst sliding ones look a lot more chic and sleek.

Our advice is just a guide though – choose whichever gate you feel as though makes your home look good!

Stylish uses of modular storage shelving in your home or office

Although it may sound incredibly high tech, modular storage shelving couldn’t be further from it. Modular shelving is essentially shelving that can be moved around to suit your needs - think of it as shelving building blocks.

Best uses of a mobile scaffold around the house

Although it may seem like a bit of an odd thing to purchase for some, a mobile scaffold can actually prove to be a very handy item to have at your disposal. They make a great alternative to ladders and stepladders, which most people find to be unsteady, too much of a hassle to use, or difficult to store in the home.

On the flipside of things, portable scaffolds are sturdy, easy to use and adjust, and are compact when compared to an excessively tall ladder – most of the height of which you won’t even use.

If you’re struggling to think of what you would use it for, you would be surprised at just how much you can get done with one!
