The living-room type of kitchen, found in most -of the new homes today features a laundry area containing the washer, gas clothes dryet-, and sometimes an ironer, depending" upon the space and budget.

It should be smooth, clean, dry and firm. Level any pro- ruding high spots with a ra3p, fill small holes, with patching plastef and larger ones with slaster-yoard. For a wall in bad condition, knock off the old Blaster and replace it with stiff auilding - board nailed to the studs. ' Next, start accurately. If the tile will extend only part way up the wall, find the lowest floor point and measure up to the desired height. Allow room for the cap tile and feature strip which will finisft the job.

Hold the spreader perdenicular to the wall, and spread the mastic in wavy lines to form suction pockets which will hold the tile firmly. Apply only as much mastic as you will need for a half-hodr's work . . . making sure it is spread evenly. Lay the first row of tile from the center out along your guide line. Using this method, tiles will balance on both sides of the wall. Place the tile in position by pressing the corners in firmly. Do not touch the cement or slide tiles into place.

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 accessaries. More often it means an added bath 'tor a family that hft outgrown facilities offered by. a single bathroom. A family of four or more really needs two bathrooms. Appraisers are rating houses as obsolete xvhen 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 you want. A good bathroom is a lot more than just space for three plumbing fixtures—and it does not have to spread over acres, cither, 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 cr 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 bs recessed between studs in walls. And don't overlook the possibility of a vani- tory—a lavatory built into a tounter ton with storage cabinets beneath. 2. Will" the room's finishes be Vurable arid 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 expensive investments. Material that Is waterproof and easy' to clean and keep sanitary is mandatory for bathrooms. Since ceramic- tile has proved to be the favorite for sb 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 t needed* by water and steam. 3. Will the lighting be good? Think of mornings when a little- mere 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 cannot equal concentrated artificial lighting where it is needed. Ample mif'- rors flanked by fluorescent lights distinguish the modern bathroom. 4. Where will the tub be? In loo many cases it winds up under a window. This is so serious that the FHA will riot approve mortgages on homes with a bathtqb under a window. Opening and closing of the window becomes difficult and danger | ous, 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. C. Will the color scheme be pimple?

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-r- 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 flavor 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 every spot in the globe.
