Clever lighting solutions in this modern Whangarei Home
Roneel and Arpana Chand’s new home is lighting up their lives, literally.
The Chand family had always dreamt of building a brand new home for the security it provides, alongside the opportunity for a custom-made creation.
“The reason I chose to have a new home is because I appreciated the security of a ten year warranty. I also liked the idea of a fuss-free home I don’t have to renovate, while getting choices of fittings and furnishings. You get to build your home, your way.”
As an electrical inspector, Roneel visits four or five brand new houses every day. He used this experience to select the perfect house plan for his family, snagging layout ideas and inspiration.
Classic Builders was one of his top options because of “the finishing of the houses and how they deal with people.” Roneel settled on a large family home, with four bedrooms, a double garage and a master bedroom; complete with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
The living areas are a highlight, soaking up the sun throughout the day, but Roneel feels it’s his kitchen and office that make his home feel like perfection.
“I wanted a good study, where you can operate a business and I wanted it at the front of the house with a window, so you can see who’s coming and going. My wife likes the kitchen, she made all the choices there and wanted a scullery in particular. The bench-top, colour combinations and lighting are my favourite.”
Drawing inspiration from his experience as an electrical inspector, Roneel added a few touches to really make the house his own. Roneel installed LED lighting throughout his beloved kitchen and bathroom to add atmosphere, while also using sensor technology to make life a whole lot easier once the sun goes down.
“Under the bathroom vanity we have an LED there and it operates with a sensor so as soon as you enter, it lights up; which is good for the kids, especially at night.
“It also makes late-night shops easier as all the LEDs light up the hallway as you’re walking, so you can easily carry all your bags.”
Finally, Roneel made use of Classic Builders’ complimentary interior design service for peace of mind when it came to his home’s colour scheme. “I wanted make sure there were no mistakes or regrets later on.” Roneel said.
The Chand family are loving life in their new, warm and bright home and recommends Classic Builders as a friendly team you can trust. “You can believe that they’re going to be open to your ideas, they were very easy to deal with.”
