How To Introduce Color Into A Room
When choosing a color palette for a room, designate 60 percent of the room a dominant color, 30 percent a secondary color, and 10 percent an accent color. This may translate to painting the walls the dominant color, upholstery the secondary color, and a floral arrangement or pillows the accent color.

Help With Hanging A Mirror
What is the best placement for a wall mirror? Answer: Centered at about 57 inches high, experts say. This height enables comfortable viewing, a strain-free eye level for the majority of people. To create the illusion of more space, mount a mirror opposite a window to bounce light.

Wet Rooms Trending
Have you heard about the new concept of making one of your bathrooms a wet room? It consists of a room where everything can get wet without being damaged even the cabinetry, floors, walls, mirrors, etc. All materials used in construction are water resistant. The floor would be sloped toward a central floor drain.
