RE: Anyone like roller shades for windows? (pics) (Follow-Up #8)

posted by: murray93 on 03.06.2006 at 09:10 am in Home Decorating Forum

I had some roller blinds custom made by American Blinds & Wallpaper (can't beat their prices) and love them. They aren't spring loaded, they have a continuous bead loop you pull so they stay nice and even and never get stuck. Personally, I find the little valance strip to be more offensive than looking at the roll itself. So - another vote for roller shades!!

RE: Question about Lee Valley drawer dividers (Follow-Up #2)

Maybe the pictures you saw were mine? My DH decided to use the 1/4" boards we used as dividers (Home Depot or Lowes carries 1/4" finish board)to line the drawers as well. This way the Lee Valley channels would not be going directly into the drawer in case we wanted to change the layout in the future. This is NOT necessary, just what we wanted to do. Here is a link to my drawers: Marie's Drawer Organization Hope that helps!

RE: hardwood vs. tile in kitchen (Follow-Up #8)

posted by: babes on 02.01.2006 at 01:20 pm in Flooring Forum

We installed hardwood in our kitchen two and half years ago. I had the same reservations as others. I originally wanted tile, but our subfloor was not adequate (raised foundation), so we opted for oak hardwood. I am very happy with it. I did have to adjust the way I approached cleaning, since I have always used bleach and plenty of water on our kitchen floors. I now use a starfiber mop that cleans wonderfully without a lot of water. I used a satin finish polyurethane on the hardwood. I think I am the only person who notices any scratches. Keeping the floor clean and placing felt under all movable items is key in reducing scratches. Good luck in your decision!
