A timber deck is an attractive, low maintenance option that most homes can add to their backyards, no matter how small or awkwardly sized they are. By adding one, you create an attractive outdoor space, ideal for relaxation or barbequing.
2. In Common Rooms – Add Ungraded Power Points
Most homes currently still rely on traditional pronged power outlets, many of these, however, are often awkwardly placed away from where they’d are most needed. Upgrades to power outlets include moving them for easy charging of electronics, as well as ensuring they have multiple ports and eliminate the needs for cords and extension plugs and points.
3. In the Bathroom – Add Some Luxury Touches
Gone are the days where bathrooms had to be pragmatic – or even just standard. Modern-day bathrooms now incorporate touches often seen in Five-Star hotels to make the experience more enjoyable. Think details such as unique vanities, heated towel racks, an expanded shower or even a claw-footed bathtub.
4. In the Kitchen – Maximise Storage
No matter how much space you think you have in your kitchen, you always seem to need more. Smart modern kitchens are now making use of awkward corners and empty slots of space to create additional storage for everything from small containers to large boxes. By having more storage space, the kitchen remains uncluttered and more spacious.
5. In the Bedroom – Complete Lighting Control
More and more people are starting to understand the importance of good sleep hygiene, and this involves a good grasp of your lighting. Adding more options for dimming and remote light control will make any bedroom more attractive to the people using it.
