Spick & Span

Keeping a new home spick and span for as long as possible can be a challenge for many. Clutter is not welcome in a freshly renovated or newly built home – and neither is damage to walls or floors by visiting tradespeople.

Storage specialist and Australia’s original ladder company, Attic Group, now has a selection of products available from the Home Option Gallery to help increase storage space and ensure a home stays looking and feeling new for longer.

Established in 1975, Attic Group developed Australia’s first access ladder – or attic ladder, as they are also known.

This discreet, out-of-sight solution can provide easier and more efficient entry to the roof than the traditional manhole, usually found in the garage.

An Attic Group ladder can be installed inside the home, where access to the largest amount of roof space is located, for example above the hallway, main bedroom or living room.

GarageTek can free up valuable floor space to ensure garage and other utility rooms, such as laundries and workshops are maximised.

Regular household maintenance, including air conditioner servicing, down-light replacements and pest inspections, can expose a home to unnecessary wear and tear. Having this simple point of entry installed during construction or renovation can minimise damage by tradespeople who previously may have needed to walk tools and a ladder through the home to undertake tasks in the roof.

Depending on where the ladder is located within the home, having access to the roof could be a useful storage option later on as the family grows or household needs change.

Attic Group also distributes the innovative GarageTek home organisation system.

A concept that turns walls and ceilings into practical and changeable storage areas, GarageTek can free up valuable floor space to ensure garage and other utility rooms, such as laundries and workshops are maximised.

The system’s TekPanel walling is a weatherproof, waterproof, easy to clean surface that can be used in place of plasterboard to create a ready surface for
its suite of 100 plus accessories.

Including hooks, cabinets, shelves, racks and hoists, this unique space saving system creates a space that can be simply rearranged. Relocate shelving or hooks as sporting interests and hobbies change to ensure speedy access to the items being used the most at particular times of the year, for example footballs in winter, bikes and beach gear in summer.

Hooks can hold up to 4.5 kilograms and a workbench 2.2 tonnes, so there is endless storage potential in a garage with GarageTek installed and new accessories can be purchased as the need arises.

With the storage solved, consider the efficiencies of a home through the use of natural light. The Home Options Gallery introduces Fakro – one of the world’s leading brands of skylights and roof windows. Well known for superior design features including stylish timber frames and energy efficient, clear insulating glass, all Fakro skylights and windows are now available with self cleaning glass.

The specially formulated coating on the external glass reacts to ultra violet exposure and biodegrades leaf litter or other organic material that comes into contact with its surface.

As a result of this decomposition, rain or hose water can quickly wash away the organic matter on the glass leaving a clean, streak-free finish for clear sky views and maximum daylight exposure.

Available from the Home Options Gallery, these three Attic Group solutions for new homes and renovations can help make home the most enjoyable place to be.
