A Holiday Home Improvement Wish List

Though your intentions were to wrap up holiday shopping well before the actual holidays; once again you’re down to the wire. Instead of making a mad dash to the store, gift your loved one an IOU for the home improvement or home electronic that she’s been dreaming about.

Home Improvement: New Floors

That ratty old carpet? The outdated linoleum? It’s time to give your spouse some new floors. If a full-on redo isn’t in the budget, gift your sweetie a professional carpet cleaning or a wood floor refinishing.

Home Electronics: Surround Sound System

Your honey loves Friday movie nights, Sunday football and anytime in between that he can enjoy the 70 inch plasma TV.  Gemini Group suggests that you give him the gift of a “home theater” by adding the MaxTV all-in-one system that delivers high-quality audio. Installation is simple… connect an audio cable and instantly your TV will sound like a full blown home theatre.

Home Improvement: Shower/Bath Upgrade

Your partner loves nothing more than a long soak after a hard day of work. The problem is your tub is less than spa-like. Give her the gift of relaxation, with a whirlpool tub. Andrew from On Centre Design Build suggests that if a whirlpool tub or a bathroom renovation is not in your budget that you consider installing a rain shower head. Though it’s not quite the same as a warm, jacuzzi-style bubble bath, the right shower head can make the daily scrub down feel like a luxe experience. Add in a towel warmer and a few scented candles to seal the deal.

Home Improvement: Room Conversion

Your child left the nest almost a year ago and you still haven’t gotten around to converting their room into a home office or a guest bedroom. Now is the time! While you probably won’t be able to convert the room prior to the holidays, you can line up an appointment with an interior decorator. Helena from MEI Interiors recommends that you consider a few points; such as budget, cost saving options, lighting, overall design, style, colours, materials, space “flow”, your choice of certified decorator and your time-line. Also “healthy” product choices and ergonomics are important in everyday living spaces.

Home Electronic: CCTV Surveillance System

Gemini Group wishes you to stay safe this holiday season and throughout the year by ensuring your family and home is protected with a CCTV home surveillance system.
