Braided rugs are self explanatory, it’s three strips of fabric braided together and then woven into a pattern, usually circular. For an oval rug the center braid should be one inch longer than the width-length in feet. Braided rugs are extremely sturdy, long wearing, comfortable to walk on and are usually easy to care for. A glance in any department store catalog will give you several options to choose from. Some require professional cleaning, others are spot clean, others require spills be sponged up quickly. Today’s rugs are usually reversible so you get double life out of them. When one side is stained too badly or starts looking rough, just turn it over.

Firstly, there are glazed and unglazed tiles; the glazed tiles can be cleaned very easily and do not stain as often as unglazed tiles. All you need to do is run a mop soaked in warm water with a mild detergent solution across them from time to time. The problem with glazed tiles is that they are very smooth and therefore can be quite slippery. This is dangerous, especially if the kitchen area is prone to water spillage or if there are young children in your home. To avoid this, you could choose unglazed tiles over glazed ones. Unglazed tiles will prevent the floor from being slippery and have an aesthetically pleasing textured surface. Then again, unglazed tiles will not be as durable as glazed ones - they will be relatively more prone to damage because they are not protected by that extra layer of glazing.

Try to plan for at least two people to share each bathroom, and more can share if the bathroom is in an easily accessible part of the home. Reserve the master suite for the homeowner, and use the guest bathroom for other members of the family. Young children can easily share bathroom space, up to three or four children, without any serious issues developing until the teen years. Know the terminology that applies to your starter home.

There are step by step instructional guides available online if you want to take this task upon yourself instead of hiring a handyman. The basics of installing your flooring are quite simple: the first and foremost thing you must do is measure the tiles and your floor accurately using accurate measuring tools. Then you must calculate, using these measurements of widths and lengths, exactly how many tiles you will need. Then you should mark the center of your floor by drawing lines through the mid-points of the width and the length of your floor; the intersection of these lines, of course, is the center of your floor. You must begin tiling from the center and proceed outwards. Use a tile adhesive or a thin set mortar to bond your tile to the sub-floor; you will need to apply pressure to each tile to let the adhesive work. Grout of the same shade as the tiles needs to be put in after the tiles have set. Each of these processes needs twenty-four hours to dry.

This is the lifestyle that you are likely to continue with, rather than the lifestyle you wish to have or daydream about. This means that if you have kids that like to run all through your home and make a lot of mess, you should submit a floor plan to your house builder with a lot of open space and areas for the kids to play in and the adults to retreat to, rather than a space that could be dangerous or impractical with kids.
