Adding value to a home is the priority of any renovator. So how do we increase the value and modernise your home without undertaking a full-scale renovation?
Our Top Electrical Renovation Tips:
Lighting has a big impact on the look and feel of your home. It should be a top priority for renovators. The strength, style and colour of your interior lighting can make or break a room.
LED Downlights are a great option to consider as they help reduce your power consumption along with reducing fire hazards common with old halogen down lights. Keep in mind not all LED lights are equal.
Unlike old school lights, LED lights are sophisticated electronic devices. The quality of components and design affect reliability and performance therefore, the correct choice of LED is equally important.
Pendant Lighting is hugely popular at the moment and isn’t going anywhere soon, especially with so many gorgeous options on the market! The crucial thing to remember with pendants is they’re made to complement your existing lighting and aren’t a replacement for all-important task lighting (such as in the kitchen). Make a bold statement that compliments you theme, whilst adding ambience!
Also don’t forget Outdoor Lighting, from sunset timers, to sensors, security lights to pool and garden lighting!
Powerpoints & Switches:
Do you have powerpoints and switches that are absolute eyesores? To ensure your home is stylistically seamless, opt for switches and powerpoints that work with your theme and not against it. If your home has a modern feel go for minimalist style fixtures with easy-to-use push buttons, or if urban chic is your thing consider a coloured matte option.
Importantly consider the placement of powerpoints and ensuring you have enough. There’s nothing like an unsightly tangle of wires to railroad an otherwise beautiful interior. Hide fridge and microwave cables and those unsightly TV cables. The great thing is that there are a host of power point options including USB chargers with a mini shelf for your iPhone and “Powertainment” (multiple power outlets, TV and data) fixtures to cater to all your needs.
Old, rickety fans don’t do your decor much good, so consider updating the worst of your fans (or all of them) with more modern alternatives. This will add instant value and freshen up the space.
