Interior walls cop a lot of punishment especially when you have kids or pets. You need to be able to wipe away stains on your walls on an almost daily basis. It is important that the paint you use doesn't get left with a shiny patch or loss of colour due to constant wiping. Taubmans Endure Interior Walls is what you use when you need a paint with superior washability. It has Nanoguard Technology which means it has small and large particles that interlock, creating a strong protective shield so stains can't get a grip, so even if you wipe your walls constantly, there are no shiny patches. It also provides excellent mould and mildew protection throughout the life of the paint. This is why Taubmans Endure Interior Walls has been approved into the National Asthma Council Australia's Sensitive Choice Program and is the only interior paint currently sold in the Australian Market with a Lifetime guarantee*.
Most people think it's the weather that breaks down exterior paint. It's actually dirt and pollution that works its way into the surface of the paint, weakens it, and then the sun, wind and rain finish it off. Taubmans Endure exterior paint is what you use when you need a superior performing paint that doesn't compromise on quality. It has Nanoguard Technology which means it has small and large particles that interlock, creating a strong protective shield so it's tough, repels dirt, and provides superior protection from the harsh elements; the sun, wind and rain. This is why Taubmans Endure exterior is supported by a Lifetime guarantee*.

CHOICES FLOORING NIDDRIE
In 1959 a small group of independent Victorian furniture retailers met to discuss the possibility of forming an association to maximise the effectiveness of their business in the face of increased competition from large, franchised organisations. As a result of this initial meeting, Newfurn Floor Coverings Ltd was formed. Thirty years later in 1993, they launched the Carpet Choice brand with 17 stores in Victoria. Since then, after a further brand update, Choices Flooring has rapidly grown to include more than 140 stores across Australia.
Since those early days, Choices Flooring has arguably become Australia’s most progressive retail floor coverings group and a major force in the Australian retail sector.

Get More Mileage Out of Your Garage:
GarageTek® Offers Homeowners a New Storage and Organization System
Most Australians tend to use the garage as a “catch-all” for many of the items they need, but don’t know what to do with. Today’s garages keep our cars, store “our stuff”, and serve as an extra room for our family. It’s definitely fair to say we have growing expectations for our garage.
Consumers want space and functionality — a phenomenon recognized fourteen years ago by GarageTek, the first garage organization and storage system of its kind.
The Value of Versatility
The foundation of the GarageTek system is the patented TekPanel™, a strong, attractive, easy-to-install wall panel on which the other system elements are attached. TekPanel covers the interior walls of the garage and then a modular system of high-performance cabinets, shelves, baskets and activity racks are added to the slotted walls with clip-on brackets.
The GarageTek system can easily accommodate storage of various items. For example:
· Sports enthusiasts can select activity racks specifically designed for stowing bicycles, fishing rods and tackle, golf clubs and shoes, skates, ski equipment, or tennis racquets and balls.
· Kids love having their own private lockers and racks for sports gear.
· Gardeners organize tools and hoses handily, and even store power tools on sturdy brackets off the floor.
· Brackets, baskets and shelving handle household supplies, while lockable cabinets can keep paints and chemicals safe from young hands.
· Woodworkers or hobbyists can create a well-organized workshop with a sturdy workbench and cabinet, tip out bins, stackable part bins, tool holders and hooks.
If your storage needs or hobbies change, the beauty of GarageTek is its adaptability. Unlike other “fixed” storage systems, any layout changes are a snap with GarageTek — the owner simply lifts and slides the item to a new location.
GarageTek also offers a flooring system that is easily hosed clean of oil spills. Cabinets high up on the garage wall will allow for storage, and still allow the car to be parked in the garage.
Its upscale styling and neutral colors make the GarageTek system a perfect blend for any home. What’s more, it’s impervious to outdoor elements, pest resistant and able to withstand the heavy weight of items stored in a garage without damaging walls.
Custom Design and Installation
When a homeowner is interested in a GarageTek system, the first step is a “no-strings-attached” free consultation, where a GarageTek designer will create a custom rendering of the proposed garage organization system. The GarageTek designer uses the same software technology as kitchen remodelers and interior designers and follows a similar process. He/she will measure the garage and place the doors, windows or any other permanent structures in the design. Then, accessories ranging from workbenches and hobby areas to ski and fishing racks are fit into the space. A color layout of the space assures proper planning and gives homeowners a solid understanding of what their GarageTek system will look like before installation.
