Home Living : November 17th 2009
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, November 17, 2009 3 .................................................. A clean sweep IN most homes the primary play area for children is on the floor -- an area they often share with the family pet. If this is the case in your home, it's worth considering a floor surface that's not only easy to clean but also has anti- bacterial properties. Forbo Marmoleum Global 3 is made from eco-friendly linoleum. It doesn't harbour dust mites or bacteria, meaning there is no need to use cleaning chemicals that can be harsh on the skin or airways, especially for those suffering from asthma or allergies. This flooring is non- toxic, doesn't stain easily and has a non-slip surface. Forbo Marmoleum costs about $49 per square metre (plus installation). Details: Call 1800 224 471. Special effects Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association Faux painting techniques are becoming increasingly popular as people are beginning to learn more about them, and the best thing is the finishes are not designed to be perfect. These techniques can make your home stand out and can give you an outlet for expressing personal style. Sponge painting This faux painting effect has to do with applying one solid colour to the wall and then sponging another colour over it. Depending on how wet you get the sponge with paint, what types of sponges you use and how well your paint blends, the effect may come out just as you envisioned it or the exact opposite. Either way, sponge painting is an effect that can't really go wrong. Colour washing Colour washing is one of the easiest techniques to do on your own. It brings drama and colour into a room but it won't be too overpowering. You can use a brush, a sponge or a cloth to colour wash, and the effects will be different with each one. Try them all out at first and see what effect you like most. Ragging and rag rolling If you have walls that have minor imperfections this technique is great. It is easy to accomplish and provides almost instantly beautiful results. There are so many different types of paint to try out if you want to have a specialised effect in your home. Metallic, suede and stone paints are some of the most popular types of faux paints out there. They create the effects their names imply. All these finishes can be painted over to give you a fresh canvas, just in case you don't like the look. masterpainters.com.au HOMELIVING *All prices are subject to a deposit.
