Home Living : September 9 2008
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 9, 2008 HOMELIVING Flexibility in glass There are reports open-plan living may be on the wane, Housing Industry Association NSW executive director Graham Wolf says. He says the reason given for this is that many open-plan renovations and extensions have been done with no clear purpose in mind. ''There is usually some vague idea that having wide, open spaces in the home is both convenient and fashionable,'' Mr Wolf says. ''But often how they are utilised and the possible drawbacks have not been thought through. ''For instance, what if one non-sporting partner is trying to read a book while the other is screaming at the television during a football game?'' A possible way of having the best of both worlds is through the installation of glass sliding walls. One installation expert says they are becoming increasingly popular in new builds and renovations because of the flexibility they offer. A typical installation involves a track being laid along the floor to accommodate the sliding glass wall of panels. These are operated by an electric-powered system and the panels stack away when not in use. The system can handle curves and corners, has an electric lock, and can be sealed against the weather. Anyone contemplating a sliding wall system should consult an HIA specialist professional. Details: www.hia.com.au elegance without the extravagance $399* Dining table (round) Alto dining.
