Dear Valued Customer,

Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.

For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.

Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.

Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.

We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

Simple Design Tricks To Make Your Living Space Look Bigger

Adding an extension or a new room to your home is a great idea to expand your living spaces, but it’s also very expensive. You may not have the funds and time right now to have a new room constructed in your house, but there are some ways you can make your living space bigger. Handyman Connection of Mountain View discusses these low to no-cost design tricks to increasing your square footage.

Install Bigger Windows

One of the simplest ways to increase the square footage of your living spaces is to install large windows. These serve as “extensions” to the outdoor space; floor-to-ceiling windows, for example, free up wall space and make it look like your living room extends to the outdoors.

Lighter Paint Enlargers the Rooms

Light-colored paint reflects light whereas darker colors absorb it. So if you want to establish that illusion of space and make your room look bigger, paint the walls a lighter color. Daylight will bounce off the walls and make your room appear more spacious without the need to construct a new room

Install Mirrors in Strategic Areas

Try installing mirrors in areas where daylight coming from the windows touch or land on. Just like lighter paint, the mirror’s surface reflects light and the effect expands the room’s scope. We recommend larger mirrors for a magnified effect.

Reduce the Clutter

When you’re decorating your living spaces, always take a minimalist approach. Reducing clutter in your rooms frees up space for you to move around and stretch. Inspect your rooms and see if there’s anything you can remove that doesn’t really contribute to the overall visual appeal.

These are just some of the many ways you can increase the space of your rooms without spending on an additional room. Contact us at at (650) 695-1400 for professional help. We’ll be happy to provide a free estimate.
