The point made in some of these posts is indicative of an issue that never ceases to confuse me... and that is: the point of view MANY folks have that hardwood (or any hard surface) is a bad choice primarily because it "doesn't hide the dirt & debris" as readily as carpet.
As if that's a GOOD thing... I guess they think that because the junk isn't as obvious, that means it's no longer there... out of sight; out of mind I suppose.

Hardwood in the kitchen is sooo much easier on the feet and legs than stone or tile. I never understand why people use such hard surfaces in the kitchen. Wood for some reason is much more comfortable than tile or stone, go figure. Does anyone know how that is?
I have allergies and when we replaced our living room and hallway with hardwood it made a huge difference.

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!

My brother had this poster in his bathroom, back in the '70s. It always got comments.

We have very tall vaulted ceilings and I think the tv looks fine above the fire place.

I am a tea nut, always have been. There's nothing worse than electric teapots. They never bring the water to a good rolling boil to steep your tea in! Especially depending on what type of tea you are steeping. Electric teapots always turn off as soon as they start to boil and cool down just as quickly. You can keep them. They will never have a place in my kitchen.

Saw this in a kitchen showroom. There are also versions where the racks can be rotated for easier viewing, then straightened before pushing to conceal.

An insight on how to mix the Planting Soil? I dump layers on a large tarp and pull one edge over to the other side, rolling the ingredients back and forth in several directions til I'm satisfied with the blend.

Thanks Steve for the great article & terrific tips! I'm in S Florida & can no longer put my plants in the ground like I used up north since the slugs, snails & lizards seem to feast upon the tender young plants. I started using containers inside a fully screened in area and the tomato & pepper plants are doing ok but have been battling loads of white fly. My basil has also developed black spot fungus, it seems to be a constant struggle.

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?

New laundry room vanity. I found the old sewing machine and refinished it. The sink and sewing machine were pretty cheap the taps were almost the same price as the other two but I loved the way it turned out:)
