Home Living : September 16 2008
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 16, 2008 Indoor pollution Poor indoor air quality can affect general health and wellbeing » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING According to research from the University of Technology, Sydney, indoor air can be as much as 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. The Sunbeam Air Purifier is designed to cleanse the air inside the home, removing dust, dust mites, pollen and other debris with 99 per cent efficiency. Poor indoor air quality can affect general health and wellbeing by causing respiratory problems, runny noses, headaches and sneezes. Many of the particles that make indoor air unhealthy are smaller than 10 microns, which makes detection difficult. There are simple steps that can be taken to begin to clean the air in the home. Introduce indoor plants, dust and vacuum regularly, limit the amount of cigarette smoke inside, keep pets outside and use the Sunbeam Air Purifier. The air purifier uses an advanced four stage filtration process and an ioniser which works by releasing negative ions that attract dust and pollen. The Sunbeam Air Purifier AC8500 is available from electrical and department stores. RRP: $199.95. Details: Call 1300 881 861 or visit www.sunbeam.com.au Kitchen design is an Art » ADVERTISING FEATURE Kitchen trends come and go but Art of Kitchens keeps up- to-date on current designs. Kitchens are becoming hybrid, live-in spaces. They need to be a showcase when entertaining but also provide an area for the family to sit and chat over a meal. Glass is a key design element, widely used in display cabinets, on splashbacks, or as a feature on the front of a kitchen island. Classic wood grains are making a comeback. Solid timbers and exotic veneers add texture to a design and beautifully complement stone and glass. Colour is also creeping back, along with texture. Lighting creates a mood. Recessed halogen lighting under cabinets and island benchtops can add a touch of elegance. For functionality, drawers can provide excellent storage and offer solutions for corner, sink and pantry units. Integrated, or built-in, energy-efficient appliances remain a key feature of new kitchen designs. The hideaway concept is extending to pantries and appliance cabinets to maintain the streamlined look. Art of Kitchens can assist in the selection of materials, finishes and appliances, as well as fully co- ordinate the entire project, including organising all associated trades. Speak to kitchen designers Liam Murphy or Murray Dell or visit the showroom. Details: Art of Kitchens, 286 Pennant Hills Rd, Thornleigh.
