Home Living : December 8th 2009
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 8, 2009 3 Range will floor you » ADVERTISING FEATURE For 37 years Balgowlah Floor Factory has supplied flooring options to Sydney and beyond -- and now the outlet is housed in a Brookvale warehouse with hundreds of flooring lines. New owner Tony Cagorski said he was maintaining the tradition of supplying top quality flooring at prices to suit all customers. ''We have added some exciting options for customers to consider,'' Mr Cagorski said. The latest carpet designs -- including wool, nylon, polypropylene, wool blends and full synthetics -- are available. Mr Cagorski said the most popular was the look of sisal. ''Sisal has the natural look in beautiful neutral tones that looks great with timber and is ideal for new decor,'' he said. The huge rolls of carpet on display enable customers to see the larger picture when selecting flooring. The staff encourage customers to take a sample home to see how it fits. Timber flooring is extremely popular and there are two types available. Raw timber -- depicting hardwoods, including tasmanian oak and bluckbutt -- is laid on the floor, sanded, then oiled or finished in polyurethane. Floating floors are prefinished panels that clip together and are ready to walk on. They are ideal for cement slabs. New laminate floors look like timber and are cheaper. The scratch-resistant panels clip together. There are also ceramic tiles, stone and vinyl. The factory is open six days a week Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, and Saturday between 9am and 2pm at 24 Winbourne Rd, Brookvale.

A clean wrap Every year in Australia more than 40 million trees are chopped down for paper, so Vanessa Stubbs designed TreasureBags -- colourful cloth bags for gift-giving. She says she was frustrated with the wastefulness of wrapping paper. ''Christmas is about family, creating traditions, and making the day memorable,'' she said. ''Paper- wrapped presents, with all the mess they create, turn Christmas into a giant clean-up day. And, even worse, the glossy and waxed decorations will eventually contribute to landfill or waste energy through recycling, contributing to global warming. ''It's enough to put you off your Christmas lunch.'' treasurebags.com.au HOMELIVING ENJOY OUTDOOR LIVING CURVED, DOMES, GABLE, FLAT, RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL THE BEST PROTECTION IN ANY WEATHER 10 YEAR MANUFACTURE WARRANTY FREE MEASURE & QUOTE FACTORY PRICES *8mm Twinwall Polycarbonate Double-Sided UV Protected Panels are directly imported from Germany PHONE: 9482 7000 Showroom & Factory: Unit 1/10 Hornsby St, Hornsby www.twinliteawnings.com.au firstname.lastname@example.org TWINLITE AWNINGS (Aust) Pty Ltd Lic No 150568C *Trademark of the General Electric Company 2035863i hlnw wk24 Love where you live, but need a new home?
