100% NYLON twist set 7 decorator colors Convenient cabinet storage, work- saving appliances, ample counter space and step-saving layout make this a soundly designed kitchen. More than 2.4 million kitchens are modernized yearly, according to Building StLpply News. Way to a Woman's Heart Through the Kitchen A wife may still gaze loving- ly at a husband who has grown pudgy, bald and ill-tempered with time. But a kitchen that ceases to please her is prac- tically grounds for divorce. Kitchen modernization--gen- erally initiated by the lady at the house--is high on the list of home remodeling projects. Building Supply News, trade journal of building supply re- tailing, notes that during the past year, more than 2.4 mil- lion kitchens were remodeled at a total expenditure of some 2.3 billion dollars. When remodeling a kitchen, women seek more work and storage space, more efficient layouts, low-maintenance ma- terials, up-to-date appliances, time-and-labor saving features, beauty and comfort. Men view a modernized kitchen as a means of increasing the home's resale value. Kitchen remodeling "tools" range from basic appliances to luxury features. Among them are: Cabinets -- More of them, more conveniently located. New styles and designs, with easy- care finishes, and convenience features such as roll-out and revolving shelves, compartmen- talized storage, and front and back doors to make them ac- cessible from either side. Countertops -- Sui~cient workspace, especially near the sink, range and refrigerator. Mar, stain and heat-resistant surfaces. Some with built-in cutting boards. "Customized" countertops, designed to suit the height of the woman using them. Lighting --- Larger fluorescent items such as automatic ice- w a t e r dispensers, drinking fountain attachments for the sink, built-in soap and lotion dispensers, and over-the-coun- ter storage bins for blenders, mixers, toasters and coffeemak- era.

Today's bathroom is geared for glamor. Decoration and de- sign have become as important as hot and cold running water. And, the room's function has expanded to include facilities for health, leisure, comfort and convenience. The national trade publica- tion of building materials re- tailing, Building Supply News. makes these points about the current bathroom scene: a sec- ond bath ~in large houses, a third) is aimost standard in new homes; a well-designed, attractively decorated bath- room substantially increases the resale value of older houses; modern families de- mand bathroom facilities that suit a variety of individual needs (built-in vanities for good grooming, sun lamps-- even saunas--for health fad- ists, magazine racks and read- ing lamps for those who con- sider bathrooms the last pri- vate resort in a busy house- hold.) One reason homeowners can get everything they want in a bathroom is the wide variety of available equipment and ac- cessories. It's possible, if mon- ey is no object, to duplicate exotic "Roman baths" A good home handyman needs a base of operations (a workbench and a private sec- tion of the basement or garage where he and his work won't be disturbed) ~md enough pow- er ttools, that is~ to get the job done. Even for the beginner, pow- er tools are a sensible invest- ment. With a little practice, they enable him to turn out~ better work with less time and effort. Start with a few basic items, depending on your skill and the type of work you plan. Insist on quality, however-- preferably well-known brand names that may cost a little more, but perform better and last longer.

More important, the average homeowner can create a high- style, serviceable bathroom at reasonable cost through care- ful planning and product se- lection. For instance: Bathrooms can be com- partmentalized with wall di- viders ~opaque glass, louver doors, hardboard panels) to separate wash-up and toilet ar- eas.

The cir- cular type is best for straight cutting of lumber and large boards, The sabre type is pre- ferred for cutting curves or thin panels of hardboard or plywood. A sander.

Added attractions are wide countertops and roomy undercounter storage cabinets. Modern plumbing fixtures combine beauty and practical- ity. Sinks have pull-out spray- ers for hair washing, and swing-away faucets so you can use the sink as a baby's tub. Showers have two-level spray heads for "his" and "her" heights, and control dials that let you select a~ variety of wa- ter temperatures. Tubs and showers have built-in safety features such as grab bars and non-slip sur- faces. Wall-hung toilets are popular because of cleaning ease. "Glamor" wall and floor coverings (including carpeting and woodgrain and marbleized paneling ~ are designed for beauty and hard wear. Choose a type that is moisture and humidity-resistant and can be washed clean.
