Where are all the power points? Electrical needs are so often overlooked until it’s too late. We don’t want you making that mistake so plan early on where you will need wall sockets in easy reach for every room of the house – consider how you use each room and what you’ll require for your appliances, lamps, TV and entertainment units. You could also consider built-in USB hubs in the study or kitchen areas for charging smart phones and data points for computers. And make sure your electrical plan is complete with any special light fittings to add your personal touch, like feature pendant lights, down lights and dimmer switches.
Will I need a security system? For peace of mind, this is an important feature to build into your home design before you move in. There is a wide selection of premium security systems that will keep your home and family safe, such as an integrated intercom/alarm system and CCTV networking packs. Ask your Spectra Design Consultant which option would be best for you.
Can I go green? Don’t wait until after your home is built to discover the benefits of environmentally friendly design – as well as being good for the planet, our range of green products can really impact the cost of running your home now and into the future.
