Taking a break
Before we share our home refresh ideas with you, we’d like to
We wish you and your family a very merry Christmas
Catching up with friends and family has been challenging this year so we hope you spend as much time as possible making fun memories with the people you treasure most.
Our last working day is Friday 17 December
We are back on Tuesday 4 January
We’re already taking bookings for next year. The first 10 people to make a booking for January and mention this newsletter will receive a 10% discount.
Planning a home refresh? Start the new year with some simple electricals.
Sometimes it’s the little things that can make your home feel drab. So here are 5 ideas for simple home refreshes without the inconvenience and mess of a big renovation.
Refresh idea #1 – New lights
It’s amazing how different your home can feel with:
- A new statement pendant or light fitting
- New task lighting
- Or replacing your existing downlights, spotlights or track lights with energy efficient LED options
Take a look at our Facebook page for some inspiration on what’s possible.
Refresh idea #2 – Replace yellowing powerpoints and light switches
Over time, white plastic light switches and powerpoints turn a grubby shade of yellow or grey. It doesn’t matter how much you try to clean them, the discolouring is an age thing and can’t be reversed.
There are all sorts of cool and stylish power point and light switch options as well as high tech light switches that can be operated from your smart phone. One of our favourite suppliers is Clipsal and you can find their powerpoint and switch range here.
So make your home look clean and fresh by asking us to replace your old discoloured powerpoints and light switches.
Refresh idea #3 – Embrace simple strip lighting
Strip lighting is a fine ribbon of LED lights that pack a punch. You’re most likely to find them:
- Beneath overhead cupboards to light up benchtops and work areas
- Along kitchen cupboard kickboards to light the way at night
- In shelving or display cabinets to highlight your treasures
So if you have a dark corner or work area that’s badly lit, chat to us about installing some strip lighting.
Refresh idea #4 – Improve your bathroom lighting
Whether it’s shaving or applying make-up, every bathroom needs good lighting but very few bathrooms have it. So if you are struggling to see your face clearly in the mirror, ask us to help you find the solution.
Refresh idea #5 – Install powerpoints where you need them
Have you lost powerpoints behind couches, cabinets and other furniture? Or perhaps your home was built with insufficient powerpoints for your needs. Let’s make 2022 the year you throw away your powerboards and extension cords! After all, they can be dangerous and a possible fire hazard. Ask us to replace them with extra powerpoints located where you need them.
