Home Living : December 6th 2011
2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, December 6, 2011 fu1959 LIGHTS SWITCH ON TO SAFETY FAIR Trading has warned con- sumers to make sure Christmas lights, decorations and electri- cal products meet Australian safety standards. And when decorating, be careful not to overloaded elec- trical circuits that can result in fire. QUICK CHECKLIST Indoor lighting and power chords are not waterproof so they should not be used outdoors Synthetic Christmas trees can be highly flammable so only custom-made lights and decor- ations should be used Use extra-low-voltage lights, particularly for outdoor displays Never use illegal alterations to fixed wiring to connect lights or other equipment Only use lights and trans- formers designed for outdoor use and outdoor displays Never overload power boards by connecting an excessive num- ber of lights. DECORATIONS DECKED OUT IN STYLE CHRISTMAS IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS Look to the natural surroundings when decorating. JUST like the interior, outdoor areas can be utilised and trans- formed to reflect your person- ality. A deck is the ideal place for hosting guests this Christmas and makes handling the fes- tivities much easier. Comfortable seating, the right decorations, lighting and shade help make the occasion special. And a simply decorated Chri- stmas tree will give your deck some real holiday spirit. Al- ternatively, add a pot planted with a variety of pine and decorate. Large floor cushions with outdoor rugs and mats will provide added comfort and ex- tra seating. For decks without shade, tie a large piece of canvas over the top or get a temporary sail. Deck umbrellas add comfort and colour. Bring the fan out and set up a drink station with a large con- tainer filled with ice. Decorate with candles and burn incense sticks and oils. And to keep mozzies at bay, get some citronella lamps and cand- les. Add paper lanterns or lights and have insect repellent handy. If your deck is near a swimming pool or spa, decorat- ing options are endless.
