Cleverly planned designs with contrasting borders or geometrical shapes will coordinate other rooms with their furnishings and create a specific atmosphere for each area. Designers are especially insistent ;hiit, the flcor be in t'.me with the furnishings. With modern blond or bleached furniture, a smart color treatment !s achieved with a black, dark brown, orflark green floor, accented with narrow white riinsonal stripes three or Jour feet apart. Dark, heavy furniture calls for pastel tones in the floor. Crater Lake. Oregon, which is an unusual sapphire blue, lies in what was once a gigantic volcano and is 2,000 feet deep.

Insulation of Water Pipes Called Cure For Both Winter, Summer Troubles Moisture condensation on cold* water pipes in summer and slow arrival of hot water to HU open faucet In winter can both be cured by proper insulation, H was stated today by the Construction Research Bureau, New York clearing house for building information. Condensation results when warm, humid air strikes the cold pipe, causing drops of water to form, ft is most frequently observed on exposed pipes in basements in summer, but is even. more insidious when it remains undiscovered on hidden pipes. It often becomes quite serious when pipes are hidden beneath floors or In walls, for the ivnter (trip will damage plaster. The cure Is to wrap exposed pipes with mineral, wool insulation or molded insulating jackets. For pipes In floors, the remedy is'to close nil openings through which warm house air can reach the piping. Full-thick wall insulation will prevent trouble there. Loose, nodulated mineral wool is easily blown into walls and other inaccessible spaces In an existing house and not only reduces the danger of condensation on pipes but provides greater year-arountl comfort. In new homes, baits or blankets of mineral wool are placed Between .studs and joints after plumbing is installed, completely enveloping the pipes. The same Insulation that prevents condensation on cold pipes in summer will keep hot water pipes from ooling rapidly in winter and rc- iiilt in a substantial fuel saving for .he water heater, the Bureau has found. Uninsulated hot water pipes cool when not in use, entail long waits for hot water to flow from the tank to open faucets and the ulonmllc water heater is torccd to operate for longer periods. Panel Heating Is Suited to All Building Types Panel radiant heating Installa- lions have been made in .all types om buildings and In all sections ol the country, sjys the'Plumbing and Heating Industries Bureau.. Tn many recjnt large scale developments of small houses, pipe coils embedded in concrete floor slabs have been used. One or these on Long Island. New York. Is scheduled to Include 10.1100 homes. Hospital installations in all ell- males have performed well with pipe coils in the floors or ceilings. Working conditions In garages and similar buildings are greatly improved by warm floors. Desirable lesults are reported by the poultry tmlnsliy from the use of radiant heating systems. These advantages include a decreased mortality rate and increased weight of poully. Hot wttcr circulated In the pipe coils can be heated by the usual types of fuel and by conventional boilers. The required heat output depends iipon heat looses the snine ns with other types of heating systems and is figured In the same manner. Proper insulation of the structure is desirable as is Hie case with any type" of heating system. It is recommended that the design of all panel heating systems be checked and Installed by a heating engineer or contractor to Insure efficient performance. 'Expansion' Home Hinges On Lot Size Before buying or building a house with the intention of expanding its .size at a later dale, the homeowner should first make sure that the size of Hie plot will permit ftiiure expansion, says the Construction Rc- seiirch Bureau, New York clearing house for building Information. The house or ploi buyer is advised to obtain from his local building officials a copy of the zoning law before mnk- Ing any purchase. Mast communities and some lending agencies have regulations governing the distances from the house to the .street and to other property lines, the Bmeau cautioned. These distances are usually staled as mln- imums to prevctn crowding or en- ct'caching upon adjoining property, Few from yards are permitted to be Ic.w itiaii 20 feet, side yards less thnn 5 feet, and the requirements arc usually more. Limitations nre set on how niitch of (he plot can be occupied by buildings. These range from 25'/r to 40'.t In most residential zones. In the case of a 100' x 50' plot where 25% occupancy is the maximum, house and garage can cover no more than 1.250 .square feet. Unless the house Is extremely .small, this would obviate any additions at ground level; any expcnsion would have to be in the form of a second.story. Ready-Made Chests Are Easily Fitted into Remodeled Attic Walls Save time and space when remodeling the attic Into extra rooms by building ready-made storage chests right into the wall. Use three or four unpalnled chests of drawers 4 feet high that sit flat on the floor without legs. Fasten the rear tops of these chests firmly to the roof rafters at the slope 4 feet above the floor. When finishing the celling and wall, drop the wall straight down to the floor flush with the front of the chesls so that the front of the row of chcsLs appears to be part of the wail.
