Home Living : February 7th 2012
2 HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, February 7, 2012 MB BUILDING IT ALL STARTS ON THE FLOOR Floorplans influence design and size. CHOOSING an appropriate floorplan is an essential step to your building project. Consider your floor plan care- fully and think about what you really need. Larger homes will cost more to heat, cool and furnish. Good design can make smaller spaces appear bigger, and increase the comfort, as well as value, of your home. Choose a house plan that suits the size, shape and slope of your block. Build a home that's as large as you need. Any more will cost you more to build and maintain. Plan space efficiently. Do you need extra space or can you re- organise what you have? Face your living areas north to take advantage of winter sun. North-facing windows get sun for the longest part of the day in winter and are easy to shade in summer. Include windows or openings on more than one side of the living area for breezes. ENERGY EFFICIENCY GREEN RULE OF THUMB FEATURES THAT LOWER LIVING COSTS Talking to experts first can save time and money. OFTEN the best time to con- sider ways to increase the en- ergy efficiency of your home is when you're building or reno- vating. This is an exciting time but it can also be complicated and stressful with all sorts of de- cisions to make. These include decisions about design, heating and cooling, insulation, outdoor areas and appliances. Your choices can not only improve your lifestyle and comfort but cut heating, cooling and water costs for years to come. Here we have some tips from LivingGreener.com.au: Planning ahead helps you avoid pitfalls and extra costs and ensure a better result; Speak to experts for advice. Money spent on design or en- ergy experts is likely to be repaid many times over; Learn from friends who have renovated; Look at magazines for ideas and inspiration; Talk to your council or gov- ernment department about building regulations; Clever positioning of your home on the block allows you to take advantage of winter sun and minimise summer heat.

The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
