We are in the middle of redoing our kitchen. We went with laminate for durability and price. I think it looks great. I'm getting ready for the new tile backsplash. We will soon be replacing the quarry tile floor with a bamboo product. I inherited the quarry tile, and I can't stand it. It spots horribly. Drop an ice cube, it shatters and your floor's a water spot nightmare, and everything else you drop breaks in million pieces.

Recycled glass looks amazing. I would like to install this as my kitchen countertops which needs low maintenance. This is one of those idea books that one needs to bookmark. Thank you for writing it.

Yep, I have dark brown leather furniture in the den and really want to add some color and "life" to the room. This was a great option for Texas but now that we're in Florida; I need to brighten things up. I hope more of you will add pics of your "leather" rooms. I need inspiration!

E Latimer-agree with area rug comments. I would move ottoman to another area in the room ( maybe even remove it) to break up "the leather" look. Get an interesting coffee table to add texture and dimension to the room.

We are doing our own renovating. My advice would be to only attempt this if you have building experience & be prepared for it to take forever!!

We're in the last days of one small reno which is the lead up to a larger one later in the year.
Will we use the same contractor - yes, he's easy enough to get along with and the work he does is alright. (plus everything is already ordered).
Would I recommend him to friends - no. Because he is rather disorganised and the work is alright.
I'm prepared to put up with him (after all, we're kinda disorganised too) but don't feel he's good enough to take the responsibility of recommending him to someone I know.
Some contractors I will sing their praises loud and clear, others just don't get me that excited.

Pocket doors are a great design feature that can help open up a room with limited space. Pocket doors can add style to a room while also providing privacy to an area.

We use either pocket doors or surface mounted doors on exposed tracks, depending on the application. I love the look of the exposed track hardware, but you need clear wall space to the side of the door opening in order to make it work. The door then becomes a design feature. A pocket door essentially disappears when open, so you can create a greater flow of space.
