If you’re big into kitchen designs like I am then a good start is speaking to the ultimate professionals at Perennial Kitchens. After using them to give my kitchen a makeover, I couldn’t recommend anyone else to do the job for you. My kitchen was the only thing in my house that needed touching up after I had given most of my house a makeover in the past few years. I had kitchen renovations applied to my kitchen two years ago but grew out of love with it and needed something done quickly.
I contacted Perennial Kitchens because I needed some help and expertise in the area of kitchen makeovers in addition to finding the best cabinet makers available. Of course, Perennial Kitchens can do it all!
The one thing I loved about Perennial Kitchens was the ability to deviate from their template designs and design your own kitchen! A kitchen is something you that you want every little aspect to be perfect about and this are where Perennial Kitchens stand out from the rest. They sit down with you and allow you to basically do what you want in the form of your own design.
Every single aspect of my kitchen is designed to my tastes – cabinets, draws, stove, microwave – everything! Everything is exactly how I want it to be and everything is perfectly set up for me to enjoy the use of it. The fridge is where I want it to be, the drawers come out as far as I want them to come out, the microwave is right next to the stove and best of all, my kitchen is pristine and modern looking.
If you want to know the best company to use for the creation of a new kitchen or the remake of an old one; contact Perennial Kitchens today to get the best kitchen for the best price.
As a busy working mother, I often turn to blogs these days. If I’m looking for recipe ideas or technology advice or some parenting stories, the blogosphere has it all. And I love reading peoples stories, their advice and looking at scrumptious food shots. When I have a few spare minutes at work, or in between bath and bed time, I like to jump on and have a quick read through some of my favourites. I often learn a lot, get inspiration or just begin to feel normal about certain things.
So I have slowly decided to write and post a blog here and there to share my advice, my experiences on certain topics that interest me. My kids and family is certainly up the top of the list.
So recently I found babysitting services from a company called Help On The Way. I found them online and browsed through their website. They offer a great variety of services from the babysitting, to aged care help, to cleaning and house sitting.
When looking for a nanny online, I wouldn’t go anywhere else. The service I have received from this company is second to none. They are always so helpful and so professional. Their staff are friendly, attentive and very good at what they do. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone, so I thought I’d share with all of you! I know how hard it can be to find a trustworthy and reliable professional nanny or babysitter. You need peace of mind when leaving your children with a minder, and with this reputable company you can feel comfortable.
They also have aged care jobs in Melbourne available on their site, so if you are on the other side and looking for a job, check out their website. They really make sure that their staff is qualified, trained and dedicated to their role.
Don’t waste your time trying to find a sitter that isn’t qualified, reliable or trustworthy. Check out this fantastic company and let me know your experiences!
When building our new home, I was investigating different companies, different brands and different systems for the security for our home in Melbourne. I thought I’d share what I found.
Many security companies around Melbourne offer, what you would assume to be, similar products. Before all the research, that’s exactly what I thought I’d find – companies offering the basic system, the middle and maybe the expensive version. But who knew there are so many brands, so many systems and so many installation processes available. I became a little overwhelmed and confused about who to go with, what to get, what I needed.
I spoke with a company called VIP Alarms. They are a family owned business and they have long been in the industry, which is reassuring. They are friendly, and importantly, extremely knowledgeable on all their products.
I went in asking for an alarm system for my new home, and they were more than happy to discuss with me what would be the most suitable for my space. They explained the ins and outs and running of the system and spoke about the different security camera systems that were also available.
I was very impressed with the service I received and the products and excellent brands they offered. The installation process went to the time frame and the budget was kept.
Even though, it’s not the biggest deal to some, security in this day in age is so important, I feel. All the precious belongings, materialistic and sentimental, in our homes are worth so much, and I would just hate to deal with loosing it all. Installing this system is reassuring and makes me feel I’ve done all I can, to protect my family and our possessions.
They offer a range of security cameras, that I have for my home, and my business as well. Easy to monitor and use and great for peace of mind.
I’m not one of those girls who sit outside the same cafe every morning and order the same coffee in the same seat at the same time. I’m not that obsessed with coffee however I am always interested in the coffee I am drinking because I have a very obscure taste. I like the coffee beans that my coffee originates from to be mostly from Columbia because of how strong the taste is.
Only a matter of weeks ago it seems as though I have found a new friend in Ciscos Coffee. I live in the south-eastern suburb of Caulfield but my work is in Elsternwick. I was walking to my office after parking my car and walked past a cafe with the branding of Ciscos Coffee on the banner outside.
I deviated from my regular plan and decided to get a coffee from this cafe. I am not joking when I say this but this was the best coffee Melbourne has ever given me. It was hot, strong and so nice on the tongue that I had to order another one. I immediately turned into a coffee connoisseur and started asking the staff about where they got their coffee from and wanted to find out some more details. All the man did was point out to the banner outside that said Ciscos Coffee. It all made sense!
As soon as I go to my computer at work I went on the Ciscos Coffee website and researched the exact origin of all their coffee and after talking to the staff member I realised that the coffee beans roasted into my coffee originated from Columbia.
Now you understand why I am in love with Columbian coffee beans!
Coffee is a huge part of my day and I wasn’t convinced with the coffee I was getting at my old cafe so it was time for a change. The change was made and now I have found my coffee place for as long as I have this job!
Unclaimed lost super can be hiding away in various different companies, and it can be hard to keep track of it all, not to mention the wasted fees you are doubling up on. In Australia when moving from new workplace to new workplace, or when changing your postal addresses, it can be easy to lose track of your superannuation.
Setting yourself up for your future is important and sorting out your super is one way to get yourself well prepared for the future.
Superannuation in Australia is almost like a super savings account for retirement. A percentage of your salary is sent directly to this fund, and you can also make additional contributions if you choose to.
So many people I speak to about super, hate the fact they don’t have a choice about superannuation. But I totally disagree with their thoughts on it. I think it is the only way for the government to protect itself for later down the track when retirees can’t manage to look after themselves. At least this way, you are set up, if even a little, for your future as a retiree.
Get set up now, and enjoy the later years comfortably!
Unclaimed super can be difficult to track down on your own, which is what I struggled with. I found a great company that is dedicated to finding Australian lost super. They work towards finding all of your unclaimed super, then working out the best way to roll it into one fund. They discuss the options and the benefits and it’s simply about working out the best, most beneficial fund for you.
Unclaimed super, is not uncommon, as far as I can tell. A lot of people may not even realise they have super sitting somewhere. Once you leave a job, and move on, often you forget to change funds and roll it into one. Many people forget and then all of sudden you’re paying fees for funds you don’t even know you have!
I recently organised it all into one fund, and I feel so much more organised. I was truly throwing money away with all those different funds, it was a total waste. Lost Super helped me organise, and they were so helpful and so friendly the entire time- would definitely recommend them for others looking to do the same.
From start to finish and all the way through, Katandra Rise will support your new home and new community dream all the way.
About a year ago I moved out of home to find a new place with my fiancé and as you can understand, the affordability of living was becoming almost too hard to comprehend. We were spending a lot of our weekends searching for the right companies, real estate agencies and other firms who could best help us plan our finances. We emerged across Katandra Rise and decided to give them a shot.
Giving them that shot was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made as a couple.
Our journey to finding our dream home started with a tour of some of the most beautiful display homes Victoria has to offer down by Mitchells Run. We toured through three houses – all of which offered something different. One was a bit bigger and less modern, one was cosy and very modern and the third one didn’t even come into consideration in comparison to the first two.
After five hours over two separate weekends, we decided the first house was the best choice for us (look, comfort and affordability wise).
From here, the process was so simple. Get the house built within 6 months, settle the finances and move in!
And do you think that happened? OF COURSE IT DID!
We were so happy with the service that Katandra Rise offered to us and the ability they have to cater each individual situation perfectly.
Our house was beautifully built in the gorgeous area of Mitchells Run and the serenity surrounding our new place gave us that outlet that we need from the hub of the city. We knew that when we eventually have kids and when it’s time to have our wedding; it is a perfect community and lifestyle for us and our growing family to live in.
To make them even more impressive, they also have land for sale Mernda and land for sale Doreen to add to their home and land arsenal.
I doubt anyone could have had a smoother, more enjoyable experience when it comes to building and moving into a new home but if someone has had a similar experience or even someone that used Katandra Rise before, can you please make your thoughts felt!
Builders insurance and warranty insurance are never easy and quick tasks you can simply tick off your to do list. But they are hugely important tasks and need to be taken very seriously. It’s no good to be getting a one size fits all solution. You don’t want to be overpaying. And you certainly do not want to be paying for irrelevant risks or factors that do not affect your business or your situation.
I recently needed warranty insurance for my builders, as we are brand new building company and with all the legislation, it’s imperative to stay on top of not only your workers protection, but also your businesses.
I asked around and was given some suggestions for companies that provide high quality, appropriate and affordable builders insurance. BRIC was suggested to me as one of the leaders in Melbourne. I was after a company that wasn’t too big, but wasn’t too small, or new in the game. BRIC seemed like a very trustworthy and expert company, as they have been around since 1996. They were lovely and extremely helpful on the phone.
After filling out a simple online eligibility form, you begin to see the process in motion. They make this process as quick as possible. It really isn’t as difficult, messy and expensive as I first thought it would be.
BRIC are a great company and it’s easy to see why they have been around for so long. They are dedicated to providing a level of service that makes dealing with them a pleasure. They are knowledgeable and experienced and can offer very valuable advice. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this company to others needing building insurance or similar.
In the past, I have dealt with companies who have let these extremely important issues, like building insurance, be swept under the rug, and it has come back to bite them. In a very big and nasty way. It’s simply not worth the massive risk. If you’re building or own a company that is, listen up. Your protection and your company’s protection are too important, and for the success or possible failure of a company, ensure you have protection. Get yourself and your company protected with relevant, specialist protection.
Golf tourism is a booming business, with golfing resorts in China and Thailand becoming hugely popular holiday destination spots. Thailand has been so popular in recent years, that some believe it is going to be the world’s leading golf tourism destination, within three years.
However, China is still a hugely popular spot, and some believe in a few years it could be the market leader in golf travel.
China holiday packages can be personalised, and are a great way to experience another country. China Golf Experience, is one of the leading golf resorts in China, and is hugely popular with international travellers. They offer fantastic personalised golfing packages, to suit various kinds of budgets, likes and dislikes.
I have recently visited one of their resorts, and I was pleased with not only the well designed and maintained courses, but also the level of service and amenities that were available.
I took my partner along with me, and we both enjoyed the friendly, helpful and attentive service, that was shown throughout the entire resort. The actual golfing itself was very enjoyable, more importantly. The course was a well designed mix of smooth comfort and challenge, whilst all the while being surrounded by spectacular scenery.
This company, China Golf Experience, have a few resorts around China, where they offer a fantastic service, mixed with amazing facilities. This company is leading the way in China and it’s easy to see why. It’s a positive step for tourism in China, and while bringing the tourists in, it’s important that China continues to spread the word. The importance of increasing the tourists for the future is also very relevant with other popular golfing destinations becoming so popular.
The team at WorkPro have certainly ensured that my employees will be fit to work for the near-future after I decided to pursue with their large range of services.
The most important service we conducted from them was the workplace health and safetytraining. Personally, I don’t think I’ll ever make a better business decision when it comes to my staff after the way they reacted to it. The reaction was so positive and you could see the confidence instilled in them day-to-day in the work place.
I didn’t realise how much of a difference it makes to grant the confidence in your employees that their boss (me) actually cares about them and wants to put them through the correct training to prolong their careers.
The seminar we took part in outlined the need for health and safety in the work place while also emphasising the fact that me as a boss should always conduct a background check on my employees and clients. We all had a good chuckle about this because of one of the guys making a snide remark about one of the other guys but it was all in good fun. You could really tell that the effect was rubbing off on all of my staff and this seminar became more of a bonding experience than anything.
After the seminar had finished I decided to have a chat with the people that ran it and to ask them if they normally get such a receptive response to their classes they run. Unsurprisingly, they said 95% of classes and seminars they run have positive feedback and often companies repeat their visits to WorkPro. I can see exactly what he means by the repeat visits because I will be taking my staff there at least once a year. It is so refreshing to take my staff away for a day from the workplace and give them a bit of a different insight into what is expected of them at the workplace. I can only tell them what I expect of them on a daily basis but when according to legislation there is a different set of rules they must abide by (safety checks, health and safety, background checks etc).
To anyone out there that is looking to take their staff out on a different experience from the everyday workplace then contact WorkPro immediately and get your team on the right side of the legislation.
I love a company such as Perennial Kitchens who pride themselves on offering a range of services. Whether you’re after kitchen renovations or just simply the addition of a kitchen cabinet;Perennial Kitchens are willing to help you in any way, shape or form.
I needed to find a cabinet maker Melbourne wide so when I found Perennial Kitchens I was blessed that they could perform that service in addition to a full kitchen renovation. It didn’t take me long to decide what I wanted them to do for me and believe it or not, it wasn’t just a kitchen cabinet modification.
After seeing the amazing range of kitchens they are able to design I decided to get my whole kitchen re-done as opposed to the single installation of a new cabinet. It was too good of an offer to refuse because it wasn’t going to cost me near as much as I thought a kitchen renovation normally would.
I decided to proceed with the exclusive personalised service they offer. Located only a 10 minute drive from me in Eltham, the showroom is something that you need to see to believe. Their showroom was decorated with fancy colours, design features and various styles. For anyone that is about to get their kitchen renovated, this is exactly what you want to see so you can confirm the exact way you want your design to be.
Once all the blueprints were confirmed and all the designs were ready to go, three months later my kitchen was finished. The happiness and excitement rushing through my blood wasn’t enough to show how delighted I was with the job. I am absolutely delighted with my kitchen because it has met all my expectations and in many ways exceeded them.
I forgot the names of the designers and builders but I would like to extend my thanks to them and to the whole team at the Perennial Kitchens. Not only have they made my kitchen look like a dream come true but it is now the official centrepiece of our house. I really cannot thank them enough for giving me exactly what I wanted and at such a good price. For anyone else that has had a good experience with a kitchen design company before please let your thoughts be known!
