Thi.t is an t-ra when more living space in a home really means more living space for the children. It's the chief reason why, when a couple is looking to buy a home, so much importance is placed on the expansion possibilities of the structure. Will there be a place for Jane or Junior when there is a Jane or Junior? And if 'here already is a child, where will he or she be able to play and sail be under the watchful eves of mother while she is preparing the dinner 1 'Built-lns' Are Popular In Kitchen Styles 'Pi- trend !<> kilt-hen "built- in-' 1 !- aftfi-tmp both sale? and MMmg of major kitchen apph- am-f s.

The trade journal said 12 JX.T- ctnt <>f American families own As for a recreation room, while everybody agrees it is for family use. the wise parents know" that it really will serve to give the youngsters a chance to play or talk with their friends without disturbing Mom and Pop. Those same parents, if their wisdom is still working, will see :.-. it that the recreation room is decorated with n kind of carefree tiiurh. Light colors and oven a little bjy.arrt 1 effect not only will please the youngsters, but often is a psycholog- ical tonic for the oldsters of those occasions when they are i permitted to use the room. j Painting one or more walls a | sharp, bright color is one way i to achieve a cheery atmo- ' sphere. | Realism also is called for in ! the matter of furniture and even in the types of walls, ceilings and floors which are selected if the recreation room is created after the family moves in. Sturdy furniture will serve the ' purpose af the sacrifice of beau- tiful but fragile fabrics. Asphalt or vinyl asbestos floor tile will stand up well, and those days can be purchased in sparkling designs. Acoustical ceiling tile may be a wise choice if some of the noise must be kept inside the room. Walls of durable materials are preferable over those which can be easily dented or punctured. In short, you might as well make the recreation mom a place for the young. You'll have to do it sooner or later. A decorating show should leave one with Metis and impressions, or it doesn't count for good if tnsies are to mature. At a recent decoration and design | show in New York there were quite a few far-out Innovations, some that would prove loo costly for the average pockelbook, and some that looked like everybody had run out of ideas. But some trends could be spotted and the ideas that were around could be put to good use. Use of velvet fabric and § number of paneled rooms seems lo indicate more formality ia the 1966 home. Even an out' door terrace was furnished with Chippendale chairs, comfortable sofas and handsome end tables, The luxury setting by Paul Krauss was made possible by a canopy of a laminated waterproof sheeting reinforced with rayon. Comfortable sofas covered in gay fabrics, and glass lopped tables, completed the scheme. A number of settings offered "the library look." A sleep capsule was enclosed in a wall of vinyl tile in a "dor- milorio" by Darin Pierce, a draped-renaissance-style bed was used in a paneled room by Tom Lee, a canopied draped bed with a shirred crown over a single Empire bed was seen in another setting. Some small spaces made every inch count. A paneled kitchen, living - dining section by Armstrong included a recreation room with waist reducer, exercise bicycle, bongo board and ping pong table, all in a small area. Window shades provided lots of tricks. There was an entire window wall in pull-down arid bottom-up shades fitted into a floor-lo-ceiling framework that I made the ceiling look higher. iTom Woods used shades in a : shell for a sludio retreat de; signed for Bigelow.
