With more of us spending more time at home than ever before, its a great idea to make sure that your home is set up the best it can be for the multiple situations you are going to use it for. Whether it is entertaining, working from home, having a movie night, cooking up a feast, or creating a family.
Most of the time, when a house is designed, little thought is actually put into living in the space. If your house is a bit older, there is a good chance modern living circumstances are completely different from when the house was originally built. Step away from being okay with just okay, and let The Electric Collective help you take your house to the next level. You do, after all, own the house and you do spend a lot of time there, so why not make that time the best it can be. As industry-leading electricians, The Electric Collective's residential and commercial team has the skills and equipment to upgrade your home.
Here is a list of great ideas to take your home to the next level:
The quickest and easiest way to help improve the mood and atmosphere to suit the use of the space is to introduce mood lighting. To utilize this to its best potential, think of lighting as a tool to create different feelings in a space. Light can also be used to create rooms inside rooms, such as dividing a dining room and living room. With more and more homes becoming open plan, this is becoming more and more essential.
With us spending more time at home than ever, it is more important than ever to make sure the air we are breathing is healthy and that the rooms we live in are comfortable. Removing the moisture from the air makes a house cheaper to heat and cool, creates a healthy environment for you to live in, and will make appliances and furniture last longer. Something often overlooked, ventilation and heating is an important aspect of a healthy home.
Avoid struggling with adaptors, multi-plugs, and multi-boards. Talk to us about putting in the appropriate outlets to service your needs. With more of us working from home, the power requirements that were once needed in a home have been well exceeded. Don't fall into the trap of stacking multi-boxes onto extension leads onto more multi-boxes, this is recipe for disaster.
Smart Home is perhaps the wrong terminology to use at times. The aim of a smart home should really be to achieve an 'Easy Home', using the smarts to make your life easier and more convenient. In today's world, every minute counts, the years are going quicker, the days are going faster. Your home needs to fit to your lifestyle. This could mean something as simple as opening the blinds in the morning on a schedule, to save you those few precious minutes in the morning. It could also mean something more complex such as ensuring your coffee is hot, the lights are on and the TV is on the news channel, for your morning wake up.
