The two main categories of re- ilient flooring are tiles and sheet loors. The tiles are available in a lumber of sizes, with 9"x9" the most common. Sheets floors generally are made in rolls 6 feet vide, so they can be installed almost without seams. Tiles are generally easier for he do-it-yourselfer to install. Cus- om designs can be easily built into the floor by laying out the jles in a set arrangement. Basic Types Here are the basic types of looring, each with distinct characteristics: Linoleum flooring--probably the types for the kitchen. Vinyl sheet flooring -- has an ultra-smooth surface and crisp bright colors.

With the new regulations spark- ng an increase in home improvement throughout the nation, the 'onstruction Research Bureau, national clearing house for build- ng information, offers these hints o home-owners planning remodeling: In Right Places Don't build add-on rooms in the wrong places. A bedroom addet next to another bedroom means the occupants would have to walk through the first bedroom to get to the second. Perhaps a hal closet would make a good entry- Air Conditioning Gains Popularity Is any home truly modern without central air conditioning? Most experts -- including the Federal Housing Administration -- think not. Recently, more and more builders across the country, are including air conditioning even in economy-priced tract homes, or are installing gas furnaces which are easily adaptable to add-on units. Adding a gas or electric unit s no major problem in a house where ductwork has been correct- y installed. Since no extensive remodeling is needed, prices are ·easonable. Some of the most popular equipment on the market today are iryant gas air conditioners, add- on units installed out-doors. Working on the same proven rinciple as the gas refrigerator, .he unit circulates chilled air .hrough a cooling coil inside' the house. This coil can be attached .0 any furnace, and air passed hrough it is circulated through existing ducts throughout (lie mme.

The big advantage of solid vinyl over other kinds of flooring tile is that it can be produced with accurate renditions of soft pastel colors that are styled to blend with major appliances now universally used in light and delicate shades, as well as fabrics, paints and ceramics. The new 1-16-inch vinyl comes n pastel tones created with crystalite quality of three-dimensional depth. The soft hues of the pastels are presented in a unique style of marbelization combining a soft cloudiness and a directional graining at different levels within the tile. This effect gives the feeling of true marble, but with added brilliance and depth. A new electric wall clock which glows softly from a panelescent- iharged dial is visible even in a darkened room. This "Night Lighter" clock, perfected by Sunbeam engineers, is ideal for ejiy room in the house. noise problems, too. The extensive use of glass and other hard, reflective surfaces; radios, record players and T.V.; lower ceilings in smaller rooms, and mechanical, labor-saving devices around the home -- all contribute to higher noise levels. These make "sound conditioning" more important than ever. There are two types of noise: airborne n o i s e that "floats" through the house, such as conversation or traffic sounds from outdoors -- and impact noises caused by footsteps and dropped objects. That carpeting in the home cai reduce such noises up to fifty per cent. . . has been proved by ex tensive laboratory tests.
