Remodeling can, make a home a better place in which to work as well as live. A major objective in modernizing homes today is not only to make them more pleasant for the entire family but to make them more convenient for the busy housewife, according to the New York Chapter American Institute of Architects. For that reason, architects say, it is not surprising to find that the most favored home improvement project is remodeling of the kitchen, the most used room in the house. Bathrooms follow kitchens on the list of remodeling preferences, and added storage space and ciUties also are closet and laundry fa- considered important for improvement. Kitchen A properly designed kitchen can save the housewife considerable walking. Everything should be close at hand. Placement of kitchen cabinets when remodeling should ac commodate the lady of the house, for few women can reach above the bottom shelf ol an upper cabinet. Kitchen counters should be at the proper height — low enou gh so the housewife can work easily at them. And countertopi should be of an easy-to-clean material. Also, there should be at least oneiand-a-half feet of counter space on each side of the sink and on at least one side of the range. Remodeling the kitchen offers an opportunity to add cabinet storage, area if the present space is inadequate. Storage When remodeling, it is a good dea to check the storage space hrpughout the house to see ifi more is required. Lack of proper storage space creates an ex- burden for the housewife. If there is no basement, the home owner should have equivalent utility space above ground, about eight to 12 per cent of the size of the house. Preferably this should be near the kitchen and used for storing bulky items such as storm windows, trunks, tools. ••••• - --' Is there enough closet space? A family of three or four re- Mi', and Mrs. Ron Griffin who moved there last Friday. Mr. Griffin is the new manager at Iowa Finance and came here from Clarion. There are three small children in their family. quires at least of total closet 40 square space! 60 feet feet would be better. Ceiling high closet doors are best, making it possible to see everything inside at a glance. Bathroom The bathroom also can be remodeled to make life easier for the housewife. For example, a wall-hung toilet might be in stalled. This makes cleaning the floor much simpler. To keep the floor neat, bathroom scales, often difficult to clean, can be recessed in the wall. Building shelving into the wall also makes it possible to store towels, wash cloths and a variety of other things in the bathroom, eliminating the need to walk to the linen closet and other areas of the house for Laundry The main consideration witl. he laundry is its location. An excellent area, say architects, s near the bathroom. This eliminates steps in gathering soiled clothes and putting away clean clothes. It eliminates the need for a clothes hamper and require little additional plumbing cost. The kitchen and hall also are good places for the laundry.
