When updating his home, Nick Jones and his wife decided they not only wanted to feature something practical, but something that would also engage their young children. They made the decision to install ThistlePro Magnetic from British Gypsum to meet that need.
The couple were considering home improvements when they started to discuss the possibility of replastering their kitchen and hallway. When considering their options, rather than ordinary, run of the mill plaster, they selected magnetic plaster. With a young family in the house, Mr and Mrs Jones wanted something slightly more durable, hardwearing and interactive than regular plaster and which the whole family could benefit from.
The fact that ThistlePro Magnetic helps from a space saving point of view was a real selling point for the Jones family. Nick explains: “Magnetic plaster has helped in freeing up space as we can now attach things directly to the wall, such as photo frames, that previously would have taken up space on a shelf or in storage.”
The kitchen is often the hub for many families and ThistlePro Magnetic has helped the Jones family transform their kitchen into an interactive space that everyone can enjoy. Not only can Nick and his wife display recipes, diet plans and live reminders, which can easily be added to, removed or updated, but the kids can also add their school work and pictures to the wall.
Nick continues: “ThistlePro Magnetic really comes into its own in a house with children. When the kids get home from school they can simply add their work to the wall without having to worrying about Blu-Tack or marks damaging the wall when they move things around.
“Normally when you have a noticeboard you have to think about the height you place it at to ensure the children can reach it, but with magnetic plaster you don’t need to worry about that either. The whole wall is effectively a ‘live’ noticeboard with magnetic plaster so the kids can hang their drawings anywhere they want and then move them around with ease.”
Aside from somewhere for the children to display their work, it is also an educational tool for them.
