• Why do American houses have so little lights?

    They have like small bulbs on the ceiling and lots of table lamps. Why don't they just use fluorescent lights in every room? Won't that be much brighter? Is the electricity bill in US that expensive?

  • What is the small round thing on the side of a kitchen sink?

    Best answer: That is the air gap for the dishwasher, generally required by plumbing codes. If the drain becomes clogged, the air gap will discharge the dishwasher waste water into the sink instead of backing up in the dishwasher (and potentially back into your potable water system).

  • Blind installation?

    Best answer: The 32 is a good fit. It'll leave you with 3/8" on either size, which is great. You don't want it to fit tight - the window frame may not be perfectly vertical (they rarely are - but blinds hang straight down due to gravity) and you'd get rubbing on the sides if it's too tight.

  • Different window finishes in one room?

    Hello guys, So I have a certain affection for white-painted wood windows. I want to have them in my being-built house. My designer said they wouldn't fit the style of the house (they'd be too neutral/traditional or something), he suggests all windows and doors to be in natural wood finish. But for a compromise he said it's possible to have all bigger windows (window walls and floor to ceiling windows) in natural wood and the smaller ones (bedroom window, kitchen window, etc.) in white. I think the problem with that is that there would be windows with 2 different finishes visible at the same time; some even on the same side of the house. Do you think it's OK to have windows with 2 different finishes in close proximity? Thank you.
