A brand new kitchen can effortlessly blend comfort, beauty and convenience, and it can help to create the perfect sanctuary where the family can congregate … any time of the day! Here are our top 5 reasons to renovate your kitchen.

1. A New Kitchen Encourages Homemade Meals

One of the biggest trends in family lifestyle is the move towards more home-cooked healthier meals in Australia. Increased counter space, new appliances and a brand-new feel to a kitchen encourage more people to stay home and cook rather than eating out. Providing a space where children feel like cooking and helping in the kitchen is also a significant benefit for a renovation.

Before buying a property, it is essential that we carry out pre-purchase electrical inspections. Regular electrical inspections will help ensure your home or business is electrically safe protecting your family or your staff. We offer comprehensive electrical inspections for any sized house or building.

Why should I get an electrical inspection?

There are several reasons why you should have regular electrical inspections. The most important reason, of course, is safety. Without regular thorough electrical inspections, the first sign that there is something wrong is when there is a major problem, like a fire or an electrical accident.

By having regular electrical inspections, you can reduce the chances of major electrical faults.

In Australia, up to 40 per cent of all residential fires can be attributed to some form of electrical failure or fault. Whilst some of these may be prevented through more careful practices, such as not leaving a mobile phone to charde near flammable materials, others can be directly attributed to overloaded electrical circuits, faulty electrical appliances, and deteriorated wiring.

As your home ages and the demands on electrical systems increase, so too does the importance of remaining vigilant to signs of wiring degradation. Even homes built in the 1990s will not have been wired to cope with the electrical demands of modern technology, which may be beyond their capacity.

Why should you rewire a house?
