PRESENTED BY 38 ALGONA BUSINESS FIRMS It's Easy To Modernize Your Old, Dark Bathroom A new bathroom tops the, list of improvements in many home modernizing projects. Sometimes this merely involves bringing an antiquated bathroom up to date with new fixtures, colored tile walls and other bright decorations and accessories. More often it means an added bath for a family that has butgrown facilities offered by a single bathroom, A family of four or more really needs two bathrooms. Appraisers are rating houses as obsolete when they have three bedrooms and only one bathroom. However, bathrooms seldom are planned intelligently for use. If you doubt that, think of the number of times you have had to get a towel from another room or remote closet, or have wished you had more light for shaving or makeup, or have hunted through a wall chest chuckful' of all the medicines except the one ^ou want. A good bathroom is a lot more than just space for three plumbing fixtures—and it does not have to spread over acres, either, in order to function well. Here are some of the considerations that should enter into every bathroom plan: 1. Will it have enough storage space? Hampers for soiled clothes can be installed even in a tiled wall or the smallest bathroom when a house is being built or remodeled. A double storage accommodations tremen- medicine chest will improve the dously. Shallow open shelves also can be recessed between studs in walls. And don't overlook the possibility of a vani- tory—a lavatory built into a counter ton with storage cabinets beneath, 2. Will the room's finishes be Curable and permanent? .Almost any wall or floor finish can look glamorous! in a new bathroom, but how long will it last? Finishing materials with. short life spans .are ekpensive investments. Material that is water* proof and easy to clean and keep sanitary is mandatory' for bathrooms. Since ceramic tile has proved to be the favorite for so many generations, it still leads in preference. Now available in a full palette of decorator colors, tile gives a bathroom permanent decoration as well as the hard service . needed by water and steam. . 3. Will the lighting be good? Think of mornings when a little more light on one side of the •face would make shaving so much easier and faster. Window light, no matter how great, coming from one side sannot equal concentrated artificial lighting where it is needed. Ample mirrors flanked b y fluorescent lights distinguish the modern bathroom. 4. Where will the tub be? In too many cases it winds up under a window. This is so serious that the FHA will not approve mortgages on homes with a bathtub under a window. Ope'n- ing and closing of the window becomes difficult and dangerous, bathers often are chilled by a draft, and the window frame is quickly damaged by water and steam. 5. How will a tub recess be finished? It is false economy to end a tile wainscot over a combination tub- shower at the height of the shower curtain bar. The wall space left above that ' point will need frequent redecorating. Tilework over a tub should be run up the full height of the wall. 6. Will the color scheme be j simple?

Patterns are here to Stay, but they are less splashy, more controlled, smaller. In. one-color carpets, patterns created by several levels of pile, or a combination of cut and' looped pile are more precise than ever before— really patterns! 'The tone-on-tone carpet (several shades of the same hue) introduces interesting variations. Darker tones outline the design, give a shadow affect, the way a painter does. Or moresque yarns (several colors twisted together) add brilliance to outline or background. The single-hued pattern gives interest underfoot, but allows decorating flexibility topside. j When a carpet is to key the decorating fla.vor of a room, and provide a built-in color scheme, there is a wealth of choice to meet the design influences that seem to be coming from, evfery spot in the globe. There are motifs from the Far East, India, Iran, Italy and Scandinavia adapted to suit our eyes and way of life and made with American technical skill.
