Home Living : January 17th 2012
MB HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, January 17, 2012 3 UPGRADING WITH PAINT BRUSH UP ON YOUR COLOUR A GOOD paint job is a sensible and affordable investment. Research by Inspirations Paint & Colour shows painting the average single-storey, three- bedroom home yourself, inside and out, costs about $1600. The most often painted rooms are bedrooms, then bathrooms and lounge and living rooms. When changing the colour scheme, keep in mind that the kitchen and bathroom are the top two rooms to keep neutral as they consist of mostly fixed materials which cost to replace. Keep these in light neutrals or whites and update the look with colourful accessories. If you want a stimulating colour in a bedroom, put it behind the bed so it doesn't affect you when you are trying to sleep, particularly in chil- dren's rooms. Popular paint Decking oil continues to be the highest selling wood finish as the trend of the outdoor room becomes more popular. PAINT OPEN AND SHUT CASE DOOR COLOUR'S THE KEY TO WHO YOU ARE What does the colour of your front door say about you? Janita Singh THE front door is the first impression a visitor receives of your home and it's easy to make over. To make your front door the focal point, you can choose bold statement colours or use decorative elements such as pots to complement whites, natural tones or even black. Choose a high-gloss finish on front doors to add class to any chosen colour. What your front door says about you: Black: elegance, power, strength Red: passion, bravery, honesty Orange: adventure, love, happiness Blue: charm, calmness, wis- dom Purple: daring, extrava- gance, wealth Olive: conventional, sophis- tication, style White: simplicity, classical, liberty Grey is gracious A popular paint colour this summer is grey. Inspirations Colour Consult- ant Lisa Christie says grey and white palettes are an ideal back- drop for rustic pieces, timber features and quirky art. 9625 9924 0412 458 249 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org 2226530 13/12 Start saving money today! • Energy efficient lighting • Electrical safety assessments • Smoke detector installation • Electrical contractor • Window roller shutters • Solar power ")''%2 3(/72//- o .%7 ,/#!4)/. o ./7 /0%. #534/- $%3)'. 4/ 35)4 9/52 .%%$3 KING WARDROBES 9725 2266 BUILT IN WARDROBES DIY Wardrobes Cut to size www.kingwardrobes.com.au • Free measure & quote • EFT & major credit cards • Lifetime guarantee • Combined 30yrs experience • Service all areas • Quality customer service 2121323 17/01 New Years Sale 10% Off New Orders BUY DIRECT FROM THE MANUFACTURER AND SAVE $$$ METAL ROOFING PRODUCTS PTY LTD We service the whole Sydney Metropolitan Area 82 Glendenning Road Glendenning Ph 9675 5622 www.zammitroofing.com.au We supply • Carports & awning kits • Metal roofing • Guttering • Flashings & all roofing accessories AMMIT 2143006 17/1 NO OBLIGATION FREE MEASURE & QUOTE newslocal.com.au Discover Local.
