Watch Roost Episode 4

So what exactly is in Roost episode 4? Well, we cover three of the best choices for flooring in your living space, so you'll feel equipped to choose the perfect flooring for your space.

Flooring can have a dramatic impact on the overall feel of a living room, which makes picking a timeless and durable floor an important and exciting decision. 

We'll weigh up the pros and cons of each type of flooring, from choosing carpet to going bare with floorboards.

Next up, find plenty of green scheme ideas, from the best green paint to our favorite green and pink combo. There's so much scope with this color - and a lot of opportunity to have fun.

Connected to nature, it’s said that green rooms evoke feelings of balance and make us feel positive. Plus, because green is at the center of the color wheel, you can combine it with both warm and cool hues.

And finally, we'll explore ultra-desirable outdoor kitchens so you're equipped to cook up a storm at your next garden party this spring/summer. And why not include one of these BBQs from our best barbecues guide?
