Home Living : February 7th 2012
MB HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, February 7, 2012 1 Inside GROOVY GEAR FOR YOU BRING DOMESTIC BLISS HOME SOFA SO GOOD FOR COMFORT WOODEN IT BE LOVELY UNDERFOOT Timber floors are a popular choice in Australian homes. GOING GREEN WITH the shift towards sustainable living, many homeowners are looking to use natural products in their home projects. In flooring, bamboo is gaining in popularity thanks to its durability and good looks. Bamboo is an excellent sustainable and renewable resource, making it a popular choice for environmentally- conscious customers. Although bamboo has been around for centuries, it has just recently caught the eye of homeowners here. Bamboo flooring comes in many grains and types and can be put together in a variety of patterns. The bottom line with this flooring is no matter what type you use, you're doing the environment a huge favour. Bamboo is moisture resistant and there is minimal expansion and contraction. FLOORING FINDING THE BEST OPTION Janita Singh HOMEOWNERS often look at ways to increase the value of their investment. One simple way is to make a statement right un- der your feet. Flooring is something we all take for granted but it can either make or break the look and feel of your house. The choice is a personal one and reflects the feel you want your home to project. In Australia, we love wooden floors. Apart from their good looks, wooden floors are long-lasting, dur- able and easy to clean. Tim- ber comes in different colours and grains to suit individual situations. Many homes still have tile flooring and again, there are numerous varieties, colours and patterns. There are key things to consider with this flooring type. Proper care is import- ant to extend the life of this flooring. Cleaning regu- larly, polishing and pre- venting scratching with the use of protective guards on the bottom of furniture will ensure your tile floors re- main in good condition. Carpets are also popular and give any home a warm and cosy feel. Choosing the right carpet for your home is a big decision, but when you get it right you can transform your home. Investing in the upkeep of your carpets will also make them last longer. www.australianhotwater.com.au Visit the Australian Hot Water Web site or call our office for a free quote on 13 21 13 Ph:132113 AUSTRALIAN HOT WATER Your Local Hot Water Specialist CASHBACK $300 VISA CARD* For replacing existing electric hot water system to gas.
