You only live once. Go ahead and install laminate flooring at different directions in one room.
Or spend a weekend installing your own mosaic tile floor. Bonus points for originality.
Throw in some random colored tiles to add excitement to the floor.
Octagon shaped objects usually mean stop, which is what should have happened before installing this tile.
Mix and match.

These ugly cabinet doors keep showing up. As found in 1970s homes by builder John F. Long.
It’s fun to look at a wall when you wash dishes!
A few doors have been removed. I volunteer to help remove the rest.
Some people paint their cabinets white in hopes they’ll look better.
These sellers added a backsplash to modernize their kitchen.
Here’s another kitchen spruced up.
And another one. (sigh)

Maybe these Glendale, Arizona sellers have the right idea. Why hide your toiletries and cleaning supplies in a cabinet or medicine cabinet?
There’s no bending over or searching for items. Very handy & convenient this way. Great idea!

The hot trend right now in kitchen remodeling is adding glass tile to the backsplash. But be careful…good intentions can lead to blurred vision from busy patterns.
You can buy squares of the glass tile at Home Depot or Lowe’s, which then results in a grid pattern. In this photo, you can clearly see the squares.
These sellers tried to update their 1950s/1960s vintage bathroom with “modern” glass tile walls.
Bright colors in smaller glass tile pieces are starting to show up now.
May I suggest using a monochromatic pattern? Doesn’t look so busy.
It’s more pleasing to the eyes.
Hold on. When I suggested monochromatic tile, I meant it should match the rest of the kitchen.
These sellers hired someone to hand paint the glass backsplash in their kitchen.

August 26th is National Dog Day.
It is the dog days of August.
How much is that doggie in the window?
I was on a Realtor home tour this summer. As we approached the next home, there was a pit bull a few houses away, chained outside, in the 100+ degree heat, barking. Many agents thought it was cruel for the dog to be chained outside in the heat; many others were turned off by the dog (buyers would have to drive past it every day).
