January 2021 Newsletter – New ways of working and installations of the month!

Happy New Year!

Although 2021 may not seem like it has got off to the best start, Team Opticolour are certain that unlike 2020, 2021 is going to be a year to remember for all the right reasons!
We have some fantastic projects we’re very lucky to be working on – our lips are sealed at the moment but keep your eyes peeled and ears ready for some exciting news to follow over the coming months.
In this month’s newsletter, we wanted to clarify how working at Opticolour has changed in reflection to the ongoing pandemic, and highlight some fabulous installations we have seen.

 

First, a little thank you!
We know the last 12 months have been awfully strange, but one thing that’s made things that little bit more normal for us are the amount of enquiries we are getting. We love hearing from our customers about how they’re getting on, knowing that you too are trying to do your best under current circumstances gives us that little bit of hope that with the support of everyone, we will get through this.

So thank you, whether it’s been an email, a phone call, or a mention on social media. It really does mean the world to us at Team Opticolour and makes it all the more enjoyable. In times of distance, it feels like we are closer than ever to our customers – long may that continue!

 

Current office opening hours
Whilst working at reduced capacity due to the Coronavirus pandemic, you may have noticed our office hours have changed slightly to reflect this.

Our new office hours are as follows:
Monday-Thursday: 9am – 4.30pm
Friday: 9am-2pm

Please rest assured any enquiries outside of these hours are treated with the upmost importance, we are pleased to announce we’re still responding to emails within 4 working hours – customer service still remains a top priority for us, setting us apart from competitors.

 

Let’s get social
Over the festive period we’ve loved the photos we’ve been tagged in across the social platforms. It creates such a buzz around the industry so if you aren’t already, give us a follow!

Why a tinted mirror splashback could be perfect for your kitchen

Mirror is not traditionally used in kitchen settings – but more and more people are beginning to see the benefits of using a mirror splashback in their kitchen design. Adding reflective surfaces has long been known as a quick trick to make a space feel larger and lighter and this works in the kitchen, too. Furthermore, mirrored surfaces can complement any kind of interior style – they have a neutral appearance that allows them to fit in with every design scheme. We offer several choices of mirror splashback – here’s our guide to using mirror in your kitchen…

Mirrored home bars – the latest luxury property trend

Mirrored home bars are a growing trend in the high-end housing market, joining gyms, pantries, dressing rooms and wine cellars as one of those property extras that can lift a home to a new level of luxury. Whether you entertain regularly or simply like to unwind with an evening cocktail, a dedicated area for a little indulgence will make it all the more special.

If you fancy adding a home bar to your property, the good news is that you can easily do this retrospectively and you don’t need much space. An under-used basement or box room would be ideal, but a spare wall, alcove or cupboard would work just as well. Not only that, but a fabulous bar space makes sense in almost any room, including the kitchen, hallway, dining or living room – whatever suits your space and lifestyle.
