  • Keep your garden furniture clean

Summer is over! For that reason it is important to clean your summer furniture thoroughly before you put it away for the colder seasons, since wet and dirty furniture quickly starts to mold, rot and stink. Garden furniture is available in a variety of shapes and sizes and it is important to clean them the right way. Below we will give you a few tips about the right cleaning procedures: Garden furniture made of bamboo: brush the garden furniture with cold water and some salt. For perfect protection, we advise you to coat the furniture with a clear protection coat. Wooden garden furniture: Use green soap for cleaning your wooden garden furniture. We also recommend that you coat or impregnate your furniture after cleaning it. Garden furniture made of steel, plastic or aluminum: These kinds of furniture are very easy to keep clean. Use a soft cloth and wipe your furniture with hot water and all-purpose cleaner. To create an extra layer of protection, you can rub the garden furniture with car wax. The cleaning of your log cabin is of tremendous importance as well in order to be able to use it properly. A clean log cabin with also increase your own well-being.

  • Insulation

  • Lighting

In the cold moths, it always gets dark earlier. You would like to enjoy your log cabin optimally while also creating a cozy atmosphere? This is best done with the right lighting. It is best if you use LED bulbs since they not only help you save additional energy but also have a longer lifespan than conventional light bulbs.

Nowadays they are not only suited for your Christmas tree anymore but also turn your log cabin into a cozy feel-good zone thanks to their different shapes and colours.
