HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, 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 • 2 x Mirror doors • Wall to wall up to 2.4m wide • 1 x Single Hanging space • 1 x Draw unit (4 draws) + 3 shelving •1xShoerack • 1 x Double hanging space • 3 x mirror doors •Walltowallupto 3.6m wide Bankstown 9786 0395e Surcharge applies to Campbelltown area Wally's Wardrobe World 2173633i hlc wk49 up to 2.4m wide up to 3.6m wide 2.4m high 2.4m high $570 inc GST $870 inc GST Mighty Kitchens & Bathrooms 97961500 2194789i hlc wk9 ALUMINIUM WINDOWS & SLIDING DOORS BETA - VIEW BETA - VIEW 900x900 (3'x3') $138 1200 x 1500 (4' x 5') $202 1200 x 1800 (4' x 6') $224 1200 x 2400 (4' x 8') $328 web: www.betaview.com.au - email: email@example.com PRICES FOR WINDOW ONLY & INCLUDE GST AVAILABLE IN BROWN, WHITE, HAWTHORN GREEN, PALE EUCALYPT, STONE BEIGE, CLEAR ANO, PRIMROSE FREE QUOTES FOR SUPPLY & INSTALL Unit 6, 9 Kurrajong Rd, St Marys 2150662i hls wk30 Ph:9623 5611 F:9623 5091 ABN 14 070 225 197 Master Lic No 408872083 Lic 84933c Security lic. no. 408925402 GLASS CUT TO SIZE OPEN SAT FREE quotes ALL suburbs X30175 New season's fabrics across the range New Sheer Elegance range New Vision Magic New Spring Shutter range 9636 1555 Showroom: 2 ddart Road, Prospect. h dd d Showroom: 26 Stoddart Road Prospect ,p(Mon--Fri & Sun) www.sydneyblinds.com.au (Mon Fri & Sun) www sydneyblinds com au () y y 60%* off WWW.HALFPRICESHUTTERS.COM.AU "PAY NOTHING 'TIL 2011**" ROLLER SHUTTERS PLANTATION SHUTTERS "ASK ABOUT SMART STILE" CALL 13 61 21 NOW CALL 13 61 21 NOW * This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion, special offer or coupon. $500 off Half Price Shutters retail price list. ** Available to approved customers only.
