Walk out basement water solutions? - We are going to build a home in a location with a fairly high water table . We can safely have the basement floor at 2 feet below grade. We would like to see if there are things we can do to ensure against flooding, for example with spring rains while the ground outside is still frozen. »
accent tile in bathroom - How do you decide at what level to place the accent tile..chair rail height..do you go higher in the shower area? Vertical verses horizontal? We have a small master bath with large ~13 X 20 " very glossy tiles selected for wall 20" will be the length/vertical on the wall I like that better then a subway look. The accent tile is beautiful crackled glass (comes in 12" by 12" sheets) trying to come up with a more unique contemporary look rather than the stripe around the room! Any ideas? Susan »
Red tile can make a strong design and trend statement in your bathroom or kitchen. If you fear you'll tire of it in future years, incorporate it strategically in accents, as shown here. You don't need an entirely red shower or kitchen backsplash to make your point.
