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*.

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.

ESCAPE TO PARADISE
ESCAPE TO PARADISE is a place where dreams can come true, where you can live the tropical lifestyle every day.
Where would you love to be today?
Maybe you’re on a secluded island in the Maldives or a beach resort in the Bahamas, maybe watching the sunset in Hawaii…somewhere where you are surrounded by stunning palm fringed white sandy beaches and crystal clear azure waters, a place where the pace of life is unhurried and the beauty of this tropical island escape takes your breath away.
"I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it’s not some place you can look for, ‘cause it’s not where you go. It’s how you feel for a moment in your life when you’re a part of something, and if you find that moment…it lasts forever… and Trust me, it’s paradise."
- The Beach, Leonardo DiCaprio
