Home Living : February 9th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, February 9, 2010 7 Brush-up on family » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Our home is our castle and each room serves its own purpose. The kitchen, however, has always been recognised as a place for family times where rituals are born. Sadly, with our demanding lifestyles, such traditions are slowly dying. But there are few ways to put life back into our kitchen and brush up on family time -- with a splash of paint. There are endless choices available today but learn few tricks of the trade first. For a cheerful kitchen with washable surfaces, choose a paint that gives your home extra protection against future damage from everyday wear and tear, such as stains and spills. These are some top tips from painter Nick Taylor who stars in Taubmans' television advertisements: How should I prepare the surface? Ensure surfaces you are going to paint are clean, dry and free of contamination. Walls should be wiped down with sugar soap, even if they do not appear to be dirty, to ensure the paint has a clean surface to adhere to. How do I know when to choose gloss or matt paint? Gloss paint provides a harder finish that gives better wear, ideal for high-traffic areas. A matt finish is better for ceilings as it hides surface imperfections, giving a uniform flat look that reduces light reflection. Details: taubmans.com.au or for stockists, call 131 686.
