Home Living : May 26th 2009
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, May 26, 2009 7 From rooftops » ADVERTISING FEATURE In today's economic climate, many home-owners are faced with the dilemma of whether to build a new home or simply renovate their existing property. Renovating the home can be a cheaper, faster and, possibly, more environmental way to improve your living space. And, depending on the renovation, the home-owner can even remain in the property during the building works. One dramatic way to change the look of a home without breaking the bank is to replace the roof. Many home-owners choose to replace a tired-looking tile or slate roof with one made from Colorbond steel. BlueScope Steel business development manager Greg Jones says a roof made from Colorbond steel can dramatically alter the look of a home and can be used to give it either a contemporary or traditional look. There are 20 designer colours to choose from in the standard range. ''Steel works well with all other types of building materials, such as brick or timber, to create a striking look whatever the style of the property,'' Mr Jones says. Due to the range of materials on offer, a Colorbond steel roof can cope in any location, including by the sea or in areas prone to industrial or chemical fumes and fallout. A Colorbond steel roof can also help improve the home's thermal performance, thanks to new technology that reflects more of the sun's heat. This helps improve the energy efficiency of home.

The trend of the outdoor room is growing, putting more emphasis on style and sophisticated design. The new Electrolux En:V barbecue, with integrated burner, was designed with this trend in mind, part of a collaborative project with television personality and landscaper Jamie Durie. It has a drop-down hood to allow for better socialising around the barbie, oil-free grills for healthier cooking, an oil management system for quick and easy cleaning, and warming drawers. It uses professional cooking surfaces and materials to complement the overall look.
