Great heating is a godsend in winter and summer is the best time to get that sorted. Hydronic heating is the best and while there’s a decent capital expense, it pays dividends in the long run. I recommend anyone remodelling to consider changing over to hydronics just because it is such a nice way to heat a home and environmentally sound.
Hunt Heating have an excellent range of hydronic heating boilers, which are the basis of any good hydronic system. You will need a number of heaters or elements which you can put in the wall, floors or even things like towel racks. Good suppliers like Hunt Heating can supply and install a full package in less than a week.
I buy Novo Shoes because they can’t be beaten on value. They have good quality shoes and while they aren’t necessarily hand made by Italian designers the range is really stylish and they have a little something for everyone and every occasion. I love having a big range of well made, comfortable shoes and I really think there is no one better than Novo Shoes for that.
Womens shoes are such an important part of womens fashion and all of my girlfriends spend a fortune on them. It blows my mind that so few of them have cottoned on to Novo Shoes and that none of them can tell I bought my shoes online for half the price of what they usually pay.
We just had plantation shutters put in the café after a lot of research and discussion. We spoke to several companies and looked at a range of options and in the end just went with our gut. Plantation shutters have always appealed to me because of the warmth and convenience. I like the thin sheets of light they let in and find them very atmospheric, it’s just perfect for the late afternoon sun that comes in through the front windows.
We had all the work done by Blockout Blinds that are based here in Melbourne. The service was very friendly and the workmanship was excellent. We chose them for the range of blinds so all the other stuff was a great little bonus.
I work in events management and recently pulled off a huge arts fair in the inner suburbs. I love my job – it’s always different every single day and I like the challenge of making sure all the pieces fall into place. We had quite a lot of heavy lifting to do, so I figured the best bet would be to hire a forklift for the couple of days to save us time and sore backs. The company I went to was NTP Forklifts – I’d used them years ago for another event. They provide forklift hire Melbourne wide at really competitive rates and are happy to discuss different options based on what you need. We hired another man for the day that a licence to operate the thing and that was that! Easy.
I’ve recently started an apprenticeship as a mechanic and I absolutely love it. I’ve always loved messing about with cars, and I wasn’t really into school that much, so when I turned 17 I left on the condition that I get an apprenticeship straight away. So far, so good. I’m learning a lot, especially about the quality of gear you can buy. My boss is a huge fan of Tufflift, and recently bought a few new car hoists from them. I know I don’t know much, but these guys seem like the real deal. If you’re looking for a car hoist for sale, my boss swears by Tufflift.
As a builder, I’ve seen all types of kitchens. Modern, traditional, contemporary, the list goes on. I’ve always noticed that customers tend to want to get involved in the process and choose things like the benchtops, cupboards, handles, those minor details. Which is fine with me – makes my job easier. Whenever I’m asked to recommend kitchen makers, I always say The Kitchen Design Centre. These guys really know their stuff – if you can’t find it there, you can’t find it anywhere. I sent a couple there just yesterday and they spent a few thousand dollars all in one go. If you’re getting a new kitchen, start with these guys.
I love jeans. I wear them more than any other item of clothing. I work in a café in the city, so I’m jeans all day every day. For that reason, I always try to find a pair that not only stands out but always lasts a long time as I don’t want to have to buy a new pair every few months. I’ve found some good brands, but my favourite by a mile is Nobody Denim.
They’re a local label that’s taken off both here and overseas, and the high waisted skinny jeans from them are my favourite. They’re really flattering, and look great with pretty much anything. They’re durable, too – I bought the pair I’m wearing right now about 2 years ago and they haven’t shown any signs of ageing. I’m never usually the kind of person to rave about this kind of thing, but trust me you can’t go past Nobody.
Ask any bride to be how much goes into planning a wedding, and I hope you’ve got an hour to hear the reply. My fiancé and I are getting married in a couple of months and it’s mayhem at our place right now. Thankfully, she’s got the wedding dress sorted as of yesterday, so I feel that’s the hardest part over (I hope). She found the one she wanted from The Designer Bridal Room and I have to admit it looks unbelievable.
Their wedding dresses Melbourne store had a number of dresses from designers that were real one-off pieces, so I’m glad she found something unique. We’re a long way off from ready, but the dress is done at least!
As a builder, there are a lot of rules and regulations I have to comply with. Naturally, this is a good thing – people invest a lot of time and money in my services and I have no problem complying with all the rules and regs to ensure that my clients’ money is money well spent. One of the most important things is contract works insurance. Ever since I became a builder and started working for myself, this was one of the things I made sure was under control straight away. It covers a whole range of things, and the most comprehensive policy I found was through BRIC. They act as a broker and have a lot of great relationships with providers in the industry. I was able to sit down with them, discuss my options and devise the best policy for me and my clients. If you’re a builder and want to protect yourself, I suggest getting in touch with BRIC.
I’ve been into gardening and flowers since I was a little girl. My mum used to bring home the most beautiful bunches of flowers every week and we lived next to this beautiful park with a river and just so much beautiful greenery. Now I live in the city, which is a big change and not something I was thrilled about but it’s hard to go past the convenience. I’m also a big foodie so for wining and dining it’s great.
I have got an indoor plant wall, which gets sun from the skylight and a big floor to ceiling window. I was a big dubious about it because I thought it would take a lot of work to keep it looking good and we might have problems with damp etc. I had O2 Plantwalls in to explore the idea a little more and they were just amazing. They’ve given me the most beautiful little garden and it basically takes care of itself.
