Home Living : August 10th 2010
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, August 10, 2010 1 HOMELIVING Kitchen capers » ADVERTISING FEATURE Now you have a unique way to help build a dream kitchen for a family or friend getting married. Instead of the traditional gift, how about contributing towards a kitchen the couple will cherish for years to come. Freedom Kitchens has launched the ideal bridal service for engaged couples that will see their friends contributing towards their dream kitchen with the help of the Freedom Kitchen's Bridal Registry. For many couples living together prior to marriage, or for those getting married, they simply don't need traditional wedding gifts to help them set up a new home. ''Having their guests contribute to a new kitchen is far more practical," Freedom Kitchen's spokeswoman Susan Hasler said. ''The travel industry has been offering alternative wedding experiences for some time and our service is now available to help the newly married couple purchase an incredibly personal addition to their home." The couple will work together with one of Freedom's professional kitchen designers to create a kitchen to their exacting tastes and budget. Freedom then provides gift registry cards that can be sent with wedding invitations, detailing how friends and family can make their contribution. Each couple receives a unique online profile for tracking guest contributions as well as managing every detail of their kitchen production -- from design to the installation date.

So it makes sense to go home to a place where there's peace and tranquillity. Most homes sit alongside busy roads, around industrial areas and airports which can make a noise-free environment impossible. A passively designed full-brick home blocks out noise and provides the safety, protection and privacy we all desire. ''You only have to walk into a full-brick home and the first thing you notice is how quiet it is. Even on busy streets the outside traffic noise can barely be heard, while sounds from other rooms are significantly reduced," Austral Bricks NSW marketing manager Natalie Frendo said. The secret to effective noise reduction is to build insulated, high density cavity walls -- or basically, to build in full brick. The high density of bricks blocks soundwaves from passing through walls. The space between the two layers of brick acts as added insurance, trapping any additional noise within the bubble of air formed inside the cavity. Building in full brick can transform your way of life -- providing your family with a place to escape the onslaught of background noise that we are exposed to daily. ''When you build with brick, you regain control over your environment. Not only are you protected against noise coming from outside the home -- such as traffic from a busy road -- and from noise between rooms inside, but you are also building a strong, environmentally-friendly house that will last," Ms Frendo said. ''Studies have shown that the thermal mass of bricks are best when it comes to keeping houses cooler in summer and warmer in winter. By keeping our heating and cooling requirements to a minimum, we can slash our individual carbon footprint -- and save money into the bargain. ''Full-brick construction also allows you to avoid costly termite invasions as there are no structural elements to eat -- so it's a winner all round.''
