TUESDAY, 'APRIL 14 1951 BLITHEHLLB, (AKKJ COURIER IfZWf Bl/KTVtf Bathroom Color Song Wont Hit Correct Note Without PI 11. bathroom that sings with color 't hit the right note unless time ken in planning and decorating Other rooms may be painted, papered and furnished after the carpenters move out and the family is! ready, to move in. But the bath-! room must be planned and its fix-! tures chosen months before a house i Is ready.' ' ' Many a hopeful home owner gets «. shock when the contractor. Jin- Ishing the foundation, asks: "Have you selected your bathroom tile and fixtures?" • You probably thought there was plenty of time for that, but he replies that it takes weeks and sometimes months to obtain certain colors. You'd better get going. Architect Helpful If you have your own architect, he will help make bathroom color selections. Your tile and plumbing contractors will refer you to their respective manufacturers' showrooms. . Some makers of clay tile cooperate with manufacturers of plumbing fixtures In matching colors exactly. As soon as you decide on the shades desired, see that the sub-contractor places his order immediately so you'll have the fixtures when needed. If you are having a house built in a development, you ordinarily will have a choice of tile colors, provided you have ordered well In advance. Colors cost very little more than white in clay tile. Colored plumbing fixtures may run 10 to 25 per cent more than white. But white fixtures work well with all colors. Usually blended colors wear better than contrasting hues. Coral fixtures, for example, took well with gray tile wainscots and floors. Choice Is entirely in accordance with individual tastes. In one new house a small bathroom off a blue bedroom was finished in coral pink fixtures and tile with no contrasting trim. A second bath, serving two other bedrooms was finished in a Persian brown, or buff color for fixtures and tile, will: a cocoa brown trim. Both sound nice, but the housewife says the only mistake in the house was the brown trim Add permanent comfort and 9<>od loolti lo your nome witri SLATS-O-WOOD iwninsi.

"Friendly Building Service" anning She would prefer the monotone. Such details must be decided before :ile ,1s set. Choosing Accessories Usually It is safer to choose such accessories as towel bars, toothbrush :iolders and bathtub grab bars in lie same color a.s the wall tiles. If hey contrast too sharply they stand out like proverbial sore thumbs. H is economical in the long run 0 tile us much of ! a bathroom as rossible, Paint and wall-paper over 1 tub are easily marred or blistered >y steam. With a combination tub shower It s wise to tile the wall to llle heifiht it the shower curtain bar, or to the filing. In some homes, even the :ciling over a shower is tiled. When having a bathtub Installed. nsist that the carpenter brace studs mti joists properly and have the .iliimbcr hang the tub on angle irons from the studs. This will go a long way in pre •enting the loosening of cement ii. the joint between tub and wall lite. However, a certain amout of settlement of the house and shrinkage if the bathroom floor is inevitable mrt not a fault of installation. When it occurs, get a caulking rompound made tor such repairs from your tile dealer or hardware store. An easy way to squeeze this into the Joint is to use a cake deco- •ator. Cleaning Important Clay tile colors are permanent,, but dirt films will dull their appearance. The best way to clean tile is to applyxa solution of warm water and any first grade liquid or chemical cleaning solvent that I not strongly acid or alkali. Allow tilts to remain for several minutes and then rinse the tile will warm water. Don't use soap or soap powders foi cleaning tile. It will leave a sticky film that will collect dirt quickly. Never use nbrosize powders on glazed tile. They will scratch the glaze and damage the surface. Nothing Can Replace Plate of Storm Sash In Wintry Regions Nothing really takes the place of storm sash in regions with real winters. The 1-112 to 2 inches of dead air space between tightly fitted storm sash and weather-stripped windows hard to duplicate in Insulating value. Another advantage Is indirect ventilation. Without storm sash, a direct blnst of cold air pours In when you ventilate a room. With storm windows you can open the outer window in one place and the inner window in another place to break the wind. Dividends Seen In Maintenance Inflation Note: Keep Your House Repaired, Its Value Will Rise In today's Inflated economy a house no longer depreciates in value; instead, Its worth increases provided 11 is kept in good repair. It Is doubtful if there is a single home In the nation that (toes not require some soil of repair or refurnishing every spring. Shingles, fjdlng and eaves troughs bocome loosened .by winter storms, mortar cracks, basement walls may admit water, paint is dingy or even i>ee]- ing off, and other llmvs may have developed. None of these is serious if given prompt attention. Inspect Roof From Above One of the spots most likely to need attention each spring Is the roof. It should be Inspected carefully Irom above in search of defective shingles. Unless damage Is extensive, the average home-owner can make needed roof repairs himself. Loose shingles should be firmly re-nailed. Curled, broken or missing shingles should be replaced by slipping new ones beneath those tr the course above and fastening each one down with at least two nails. While on the roof, make sure oil eave troughs and downspouts are cleaned out and firmly fastener!. Clapboards most often pull loose at, corners, but the entire exterior wall surface should be Inspected. Loose nails should be pulled out and the siding re-nailed in a new spot. Be sure that all window casings and trim boards are fastened tightly and inspect sills for evidences of rotting. Replace Loose Mortar Scratching with a dull knife will reveal whether mortar joints are sound. Where loose or crumbling mortar is discovered, the joint should be thoroughly cleaned and new mortar pushed In as far as pissible Ready-mixed mortar that needs only the addition of water can be obtained at any hardware store. If the house is' not Insulated spring is the time to have the walls blown full of mineral wool and a 4" layer of this material spreac above the top-floor ceiling. Where painting is needed, it should be delayed until after the spring rains Paint applied to a damp surface will peel within a year. Small leaks in basement walls usually can be eliminated by painting the interior with water-proofing compound.
