Hot tubs are great for a bachelor pad or a small home, but a pool is perfect for entertaining or if you have a large family

The comment I just read by aubre was so gross..." floating in bodily fluids?" OMG.... You have some psychological issues. Clorineis used to disinfect a hot tub or hot pool. If the hot tub is yours and not at a hotel or rent by the hour motel...lol... than it can be kept as clean as youdecide to keep it. The only reason I didnt buy a hot tub yet is because of money and I want a new one thats about 8-10k. But I call my pool a japoozi because I like to keep it at 88-98 degrees all season.. which for me is may thru oct..............but god so I have not having hot water and jets to swim in from Nov til May...I just count the days.

I live in a location with a hot summer climate, and the best thing I ever did was install a pool. It's small and easy to maintain myself (I'm almost 67), and I've used it almost every summer day for seven years. It's not heated, so when the water gets too cold in winter, I just turn the filter system off and cover it. In spring I take the cover off, skim out the dead leaves and bugs, vacuum, balance the chemicals, and voilà. My dog loves it, too. Fun and exercise for the whole family!! :-)

If you have a bar, I believe that a barstool is needed :)

We have barstools in our newly renovated kitchen. We did an island with a raised portion just so we could do the stools. One note, we went with a backless saddle type stool because we wanted to keep a cleaner look (no backs sticking out into a travel aisle.

I actually removed the raise but the island is curved for the stools. We just moved in so the bar / island is messy. Will post a picture later.

Ok all these pet pics are soooo adorable!! Just beyond cute! Did I read in one of these posts about cats scratching furniture? Try a product called Sticky Paws. It's like double sided tape for the furniture. Cats don't like it. It's clear so it's not really noticeable on the upholstery -just stick it wherever a cat likes to dig in on the furniture. Worked for us. We just kept it on until our cat decided to use her own post. Life is good! Now we just clip her claws. Petsmart, Petco both sell it. Now she just claws me when I brush her ( she's a long haired hippy chick).

Robotic cleaners work well on both hardwood/surfaces and carpet. A good balance in a home creates noise and textural balance. My favorite floor was a ceramic tiled bathroom with heat plant underneath in a former Condominium I had. Always a joy when getting ready in the morning in the north country!

We have a formal living room & dining room. Living room is used at holidays & always looks good. We use the dining room when we have guests for dinner. We also have a family room with the TV & fireplace. Our kitchen has an eating area between it & the family room that is used for our everyday meals. I just had plantation shutters installed on the dining room & living room windows after having sheers & valances for 25 + years.

Jessica, your post reminded me of a different Ray Stevens song about a squirrel getting loose in church lol. No wonder folks avoided the formal parlor in grandma's day. It was often called the front room in my family.
We do lots of living in our not so formal living room. It's tv free but the iPads And laptops do invade. Our sunroom has the sound systems, tv and computer. So that is where we veg like electronic zombies or send the kids while grown ups visit in the living room. Maybe I should start calling them the drawing room and solarium.

Gas stove all the way!!! Try making a nice creamy risotto on an electric stove with the crappy control they have- oh yeah, you can't! lol
Second choice would be induction, great control over the temp, easy to use and most are much safer than gas or electric.
As far as a oven, all about the convection. Once you go convection, you never go back! lol

I have had the glass top electric and the open gas flame cooktop. The glass top wins hands down for keeping clean and offering extra counter top space. It cooked well, just the slow to heat and cool. Gas is a "romantic" cooking experience, with instant response time, but much, much more work to clean. A friend has induction and she loves it. She had to buy new pans, it has instant heat response and the quickest boil I've ever seen, and the super easy to clean glass top. The burners are cool to the touch since it only reacts to the pan. Gas Convection oven, all the way!

I personally like the open risers as they lend themselves to so much creativity. The treads can be of a variety of materials such as even glass. However, it certainly does depend on the style and circumstances of the home and occupants.

A fire pit would greatly add to the tone set by the running water of waterfall and stream, as well as any pool or hot tub in the yard. Not to mention, adding a walkway to follow along the stream would really top things off.

Underfloor heating all the way! We love it, even though we ended up with a wall full of pipes, wires and ...(insert strange sounding words here)... other technical stuff. And this is only for 2 floors, the 'command control centre' - as we affectionately call it - for basement and ground floor is somewhere else.

We have two offices in our home. (Lucky!) My husband loves his and has filled it with special things and uses it everyday to relax after work. I hate mine. I have filled it with bookshelves, a great work table, excellent lighting, etc. but I never use it. I feel a little foolish spending so much time and effort setting up and decorating a room that has the sole function of simply "Oh... Pretty". We have a quiet home and I have discovered I don't need or even want the seclusion of a 10' x 12' standard room. I have recently put a small drop-leaf table behind our sofa in the living room (sofa hides the normal desk clutter) and this is where I am most happy and productive. I love, love, love the space. I am happy to sit down and write or pay bills or "research" online. Has anyone else had this experience?

The "Keep Calm" poster definitely has reached it's limit for me as well. Personally, I feel like espresso stained finishes need to take a break. Between West Elm, Ikea and other modern furniture manufacturers, it all just seems the same to me these days.

Wow, I guess I'm out of style before I even get started! We are in the process of building my dream house in SC at a lake and the Sheetrock is being hung as I write.

We sold a log house that we lived in for 11 years, and after looking at brown walls, brown floors, brown ceilings, and overly dark, drab cabinetry for so long, all I want is bright, bright, bright!!

My house is an open concept house.

My kitchen and living room cabinets are painted white with a charcoal grey glaze. My kitchen island will be painted in a chalky dark blue. My counter tops will be quartz with a mosaic tile backsplash. My appliances are stainless (although I hate cleaning them, white ones would be too much).

My TV will be over my gas logs and mantle.

My floors will be hardwoods in open area and halls, carpet in master bedroom, guest rooms and office, and tile in wet areas.

I also have a air jetted deep soaking tub and a large walk in shower with 2 handhelds and a 12" rain head in the center.

I chose chrome as the finish on my faucets throughout the house because it is timeless and I want a more contemporary look in the house.

The paint in the open rooms will be a light to med-tone grey with blue undertones with white trim. In the guest rooms, a griege that I can decorate around without having to spend a fortune, I am leaning towards a muted plum for my master bedroom with silver accents.

Also, I have recessed cans in the den, kitchen, and master bedroom along with ceiling fans with light kits (except for kitchen).

After reading this post, I guess I'm just going to have to be outdated before I been move in! However, these are things that I like as I will be the one paying for them and living with the choices I make! I guess that it also depends on where you live.

I'm excited to finish since we've been building since Jan 2013. We are our own GC and sub everything out. We research every decision and check prices and quotes. It may take us longer to build, but the money we have saved is worth the wait!

I would fix the stripes at the end of your wall so it does not show the white or light gray paint between your other wall. Also, unless someone stands there and stares at your wall for ten minutes, I don't think anyone could tell the stripes are a little crooked and maybe a little uneven in thickness.

Water once a week or as city ordinances permit and be sure that you're maximizing your water use by not watering sidewalks or mulch. It may help to just hand water for awhile with a garden hose instead of sprinklers. Also, if you garden it may help to rinse your produce and reuse the water for your plants. A great way to achieve this is with a bucket and a strainer. Reduce, reuse, recycle! :)
