Suitable for large living room. Or on a dining room table, below, is used to insert hot pot (to prevent hanging back and forth when moving wires)
41, storage room. TX has been said, but I did not do doors, looks very beautiful and easy to put dirty clothes in the cupboard.

Did not think this is really convenient laundry tub, became my most frequently used a washing area. What rag ah, ah socks, and towels, ah, all washed in it, and even most hands there too.
51, fitted with lights really not practical, the decoration done up to now not opened. There are just SHOW guests to look at lighting, I simply forgot their own also installed a this thing. When the original is to open PARTY under romantic, and now do not have much chance of opening spot.
52, the biggest lesson learned is that in fact the simpler the better fitting, less pollution, less money, peace of mind.
53, useful stuff:
① designed storage room.
② North Terrace sink used to wash the dirt. Differences between the washbasin and toilet and washing vegetables for the kitchen sink.

⑤ work lights the kitchen table.
54, buy a toilet must be a good amount of their own pitch, or go buy a return that is really ... ...
55, Bath and Kitchen floor tiles stick better after a good amount of what the former did not do the level of the lowest point of view is not at the floor drain, or other teams did and decoration after passing, a lot of dead cells. 56, bathroom shower room must be large enough size, and use transparent glass, shower in it will not seem so cramped.
57, should not use white cement tiles pointing hook. Did not become a black month gap,spam, ugly death. The results they have bought their own hook pointing agent, that tired

60, the original manufacturer if the floor drain or the developer that has already been installed odor of the \
61, bathroom tiles affixed to the ground after a good test the water, if water is relatively slow to rework immediately.

62, fitted wash basin and mirror to be considered good, put brush cup shelf, towel rack relative position.
63, bought the mirror to consider the position of mirror front lamps, and if do not want to install a temporary mirror front lamps, mirrors the size of the cover for the mirror to be able to set aside the line of the best light.
64, put washing on the balcony to be a small cabinet, easy to put some debris, such as washing powder within the debris. Both beautiful and practical
65, must be staring at the upstairs upstairs to do down the dripping water .... otherwise, get the wall cabinet, the wall is a mess ....
66, do not blindly follow buy online, I later found that some themselves to buy cheaper than the bargain. Home Network personally recommend bright (bright living decojoy), the above things really cheap, but in the fight to buy the premise.
67, TV backdrop will set up a few more outlets, TV, DVD .... a put, you will find enough outlets.
68, change the water well in the future to be considered before loading in the wash basin in the bulk sample, for example, the left or right pots pots, water and drainage that is located in what place. Otherwise, changing for the better after the discovery phase of the wash basin was not fit!
69, on the curtains, we had better put your stay a size goes, the boss can not be less that size. If less, then, how how the. Or watched him cut his cloth.
70, the decoration of the construction process:
(1) approach, breaking down a wall.

To remain in the installation of two ceiling is not installed, so hood and try and correct installation of the ceiling and then installed.
72, so much in the living room and dining room ceiling can not do not do it.
73, good air conditioning in order to take the line position, the power closer to the air conditioning as much as possible, so install air conditioning power cord to see part of it, leaving a trace of regret.
74, to personally measure and record all the available house sizes, size map will be covered 楼书 units and then re-wire tagging, the final size will directly affect the interior design and furniture purchases.
75, lines small size of the bad black walnut is always enough if the election atmosphere, then need to have choice, or to accommodate actual or attached their own ideas, of course, the best balance between the two
76, began looking for decorators. To personal experience is concerned, if not particularly large size and intended to simple decoration, it seems more cost-effective to find some of the guerrillas. After installation it is best to introduce people, you have read and agree to the eyes, especially the feeling of the person in charge of the decoration is more important, responsibility and appreciation of how, some of the former is more critical, because if only a stripped-down, in fact, those who live almost on the outside will do mix, but the quality is good or bad may depend on a sense of responsibility.
77, the main furniture such as sofas, wardrobes, dining tables, chairs, cabinets, etc. had better take a look in advance, if the running around on the tired, you can find a few good large-scale home shopping plaza shopping, the basic trend to see it, so the next thing you do is based on their desired style filter out the right things slowly. Some people take good style, while others take on the color of a prospective, does not matter, anyway, there is time to consider, if you wait until clearance decoration, furniture, help wanted steps to go in the final will reluctantly accept the inevitable and not very much.
78, has been optimistic about the furniture of the best down to size and then to display the future situation of the virtual room.
79, the necessary documents to buy something good must be preserved, a move that may exist on the post-retirement, a replacement will definitely benefit. In particular, some important items of the store receipts, brochures, etc., because a lot of things have a warranty period, the evidence lost would be more trouble.
