Builders throughout the nation are concentrating on the installation of colored hath- toom fixtures as prime movers in the sale of new homes. To compete with contemporary homes on the real e<ute market, older houses must spruce up: arid color, spaciousness and convenience. Small, cramped liathro.mis with antiquated, noisy, fixtures, unsightly piping and worn flooring are conspicuous eyesores in older homes. \Vith the wide variety of stivam- lined, colorful bathroom p.-od- ucts now available, remodeling is a valuable and vise investment. For example, modern lavatories, toilets and bathtubs are made in many pleasantly matching pastel shades. Vanity dressing tables, for bath or bedroom installation, come with custom built storage cabinets and vary in shape. Triangular, square, rectangular and especially fitted corner models can be obtained for placement 'where space is at a minimum. An important new fixture currently being introducer! in American homes is the bidet. Long a standard feature throughout Europe and South America, the bidet is commonly installed adjacent to toilets to permit easier and better rectal hygiene. Installation of new, colored fixtures in an older bathroom together with proper lighting, ventilation and attractively- toned, painted or wall-papered walls will add eye appeal, convenience and luxury.
