The one activity that has seen most of us through lockdown is walking. We’ve all become more familiar with our neighbourhoods as we have wandered around the local streets on a weekly basis (daily for those who are more energetic) for almost a year.
Having never really taken the time to do this before, and with more homeowners using lockdown to refurbish their properties, we are noticing the different house styles, upgrade work that’s been completed, and landscaping choices for front gardens.
Never has it been so apparent what a difference an upgraded front door, cladding system or garden fence can make to a property. Homeowners are proud of their properties and want them to look the best that they can be. Having taken note at the upgrades that are being done, we are observed a trend towards more standout colours being used – in particular, blue.
Making small upgrades that make the world of difference does not need to break the bank. You don’t need to install brand new products when there are fantastic refurbishment options available to you that are affordable, easy to use and provide the desired pop of colour.
Country Colour from Osmo UK offers an opaque, satin wood finish for exterior wood. Available in 19 standard colours, 186 RAL Classic and 1950 NCS colours, it is the idea finish to renew previously stained, weathered or discoloured wood surfaces and provide a standout colour feature to your property.
The range promises premium durability and a rich colour, hiding the natural colour and grain of the wood whilst enhancing its natural texture. The finish not only rejuvenates the wood, but leaves it protected against the unpredictable British weather for many years to come.
Country Colour can be applied to a range of wood species, including oily and exotic materials. Based on natural vegetable oils, the finish allows the wood to breathe, preventing it from cracking, peeling or blistering. Requiring only two coats, it can be applied using a roller or brush and has an approximate drying time of 8 – 10 hours.
