5 Ways To Update Your Home In 2018

5 Ways To Update Your Home In 2020

We can all get a little set in our ways from time to time and large-scale decorating can be rather intimidating. Don't be put off making those small changes that can make all the difference to the overall look and effectiveness of your space though. There are some changes that you can make simply and with great effect. We have put together 5 simple ways you can update your home a little without too much time and effort.

1.

Change Your Kitchen Knobs and Handles. This will immediately give a new fresh look to an existing kitchen. There are so many lovely cabinet knob designs to choose from that can give an instant facelift to outdated kitchen units. Black iron cabinet knobs are great for a country kitchen and the new aged brass and bronze range is so fabulous you won't want to restrict them to the kitchen, as they can be used to update bedroom drawer units or bathroom cabinets too.

2.

Add a sophisticated wall of shelving supported by solid cast iron brackets. This is both super practical as well as stunning and will give any room an instant update. The choice of cast iron brackets ranges between ornate Victorian and Edwardian styles such as the Victorian Leaf Bracket and the Edwardian Bracket and also the beautiful ornate Art Nouveau Brackets to the plainer Industrial and Shaker-style brackets such as the Ironbridge or the Classic. Whatever your style these brackets are sure to add elegance to your home, giving you a range of sizes to choose from, you are sure to use them in several rooms of the house.

3.

Place useful hooks in strategic places around your home. This will not only help you keep hats, coats and gowns neatly stored but also add a lovely decorative feature to your entrance or hallway. Coat racks , clothes rails and luggage racks can really add style to what can be a chaotic area of the home with boots and shoes lying around in the hallway. You could even add a Please Remove Your Shoes sign too, just to let guests know you would appreciate the gesture.

4.

Changing your door handles can immediately update the look of your rooms. If you have a country home and are looking for some rustic charm then the black iron Kirkpatrick range of door furniture is definitely going to suit your home. There are not only lever handles but also pull handles and front door locks all to complement one another.

5.

Adding some lovely finishing touches to your front door can also make a statement. House signs and a smart house number sign can also help any visitors easily locate your home, adding both style and practicality on arrival is a necessity in 2019 when more parcels than ever are being delivered to homes around the country. Some stylish door hardware will just add even more ambience to your front door. A majestic door knocker or large doorknob or letter plate will give your home a welcoming appeal for years to come.

5 Reasons Why This Nutcracker Is The Best

5 Reasons Why This Nutcracker Is The Best

When it comes to designing and making great products for the home you want something stylish but practical and we have designed the perfect nutcracker to use with every type of nut.

This cast iron nutcracker was designed by our main product developer back in the 1990's when he was using newspaper on his lap to catch the nut shells as he cracked nuts with a hand held cracker. 'I'm sure I can invent something better than this' he thought and the result is this stylish, hard working, hard wearing practical nutcracker. A bit like him we think, but don't say we said that !!! This nutcracker makes a great gift idea too but let us tell you our five great reasons that this is the cracker for you this Christmas.
Cast Iron Nutcracker With Bowl Catcher
1. Stylish Design. This nutcracker can be left out on display all year round it looks so good.
2. Easy to use. This nutcracker is so easy to use a child can operate it. Perfect for those with joint or mobility problems as it is simply a matter of letting the turn handle do all of the hard work.
3. Fun to use. It makes cracking nuts fun and enjoyable as you slightly turn the handle and hear the nut shell begin to crack.
4. Hard wearing. This nutcracker has been made out of last a lifetime durable cast iron. It will still be cracking your nuts in 10 years time and beyond.
5. The cleanest nutcracker around with its handy shell catching bowl there will be no more nut shells all over your floor.
So for us it's the best nutcracker on the market and one you will be pleased you bought year after year. It can be easily cleaned too with just a wipe over with a damp cloth every now and again. But don't spend too long thinking about it as we tend to run out of stock every year just before Christmas as they are so popular with men and women alike. We hope you like our reasons to buy one but we hope you love your cast iron nut cracker even more.

5 Best Nuts For Cracking

5 Best Nuts For Cracking

When it comes to cracking nuts we know a thing or two.
We designed our cast iron nut cracker to crack as many types of shelled nut as possible and even amended the design to accommodate some of the largest walnuts and smallest hazelnuts.
Cast iron Nut Cracker With Shell Catcher
 
A great feature of this nut cracker is that it has a built in catching bowl around the cracker which catches all those shells and bits that you don't want all over your floor.
It is cast in solid cast iron which is hard and durable and makes cracking nuts one of the easiest activities to have fun with in your kitchen.
Not only that, the design is beautiful and so we are sure you will want to keep this ornamental device on show all year round. Anyway lets get to our top 5 nuts for cracking in this fab cast iron nut cracker.
1. Walnut
It has to be the Walnut, not only healthy and nutritious as all nuts are (by the way but the Walnut it is said will protect your brain). So it gets our No. 1 spot every time. It's easy to crack in all sizes using our cracker.
2. Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts, packed with selenium they are good for your mood and although the shells are tougher and a tricky shape they crack perfectly well under the cast iron cracking plate.
Cracking Nuts
3.Hazelnuts.
Hazelnuts, these are small and sweet and we love them, what better reason to put them at no 3. Our cracking plate screws all the way down and so these little sweeties are no problem. 
4.Pecan Nuts.
Pecan nuts are chewy and buttery and so delightful when cooked with Brussels sprouts (see the recipe below). Just perfect with a Christmas roast or absolutely delicious straight from the shell.
5.Macadamia Nuts.
Macadamia nuts are sweet and great to use if you are on a gluten free diet as they are free from gluten and yet provide your body with some great vitamins and minerals including many B vitamins.
So there's our top 5 cracking nuts, so what are you waiting for? Go get cracking with your new nut cracker and don't forget to try out the recipe below.

Iron Works By Yester Home

Iron Works By Yester Home

Beautiful iron work can be found in many architectural buildings especially those from the Victorian era as the Victorians had to be some of the most prolific iron users in History. Some of the ornamental iron mongery could be said to be a by product of the industrial revolution which saw production of iron products taking off at an incremental rate. In Shropshire and the surrounding areas there is little left of the industrial age, where rural delights and country homes seek out traditional cast iron home wear to display in and around the home. Ironbridge in Shropshire was at the heart of the production of fine castings, ’ Iron ore was first smelted by Abraham Darby using easily mined "cooking coal". The coal was drawn from drift mines in the sides of the valley. As it contained far fewer impurities than normal coal, the iron it produced was of a superior quality’. Wikipedia.  
Traditional British Foundry Casting Iron
Bridgnorth is also a beautiful Historic town where many fine examples of country cottages and homes can be found from days gone by. Yester Home has captured this timeless quality beautifully in it’s cast iron home wear which is manufactured in our foundry in Wolverhampton. Our offices and dispatch can be found just outside this Historic town in the nearby Upper Aston Farm, at Upper Aston Claverley.  
We also have a stand at Jones's vintage and retro centre nearby where many delightful household items reproduced from original Victorian patterns can be found displayed in this distinctly vintage setting.  
Some of the most popular items to be made into iron work include ornamental cast iron shelf  brackets, door porters and balcony railings.
 Cast Iron Brackets
 
Today we can see country manor houses using cast iron hat and coat hooks in their entrance hallways, but also country cottages and farm houses.
Cast Iron Decorative Hat And Coat Hook
 
Cast iron has become the popular choice for iron work pieces of all kinds in and around the home, including, table top trivets and pan stands, brackets, door furniture, coat hooks, drawer pulls, cabinet knobs and pulls.
Cast Iron Shell Drawer Pull Vintage Original Patterns
It is a delight to know that authentic manufacturers still exist today in post Victorian England and that it is still possible to buy some excellently crafted ironwork.
Cats Face Cast Iron Kitchen Trivet Or Pan Stand
 
The majority of foundries that produce high quality work are still to be found in and around the Black Country and some who manufacture the fine cast ware for Yester Home have many years expertise in the industry, sometimes able to produce bespoke castings where required.
 
Cast iron lends itself well to use around the home, especially in the kitchen and hallway where an array of home wear has been designed and cast since the Victorians began casting in iron. Some superb pieces can still be found today from original manufacturers such as Kenrick, but for consistence and supply, today’s metal workers can produce some wonderful cast household ironwork, that can be enjoyed as much by modern home owners as their fore fathers.
