Discussion about the budget and the designer or decorator’s fees are essential to ensure you have a clear understanding of the method of charging before work starts.
Fee structures can be negotiated and include the possibility of a fixed design fee, fees based on a percentage of the value of the project, or charged on a time basis. An alternative basis is for the designer or decorator to submit a quotation for the cost of the work required, including or excluding design fees. Any combination of the above methods of working with a designer or decorator may be discussed and agreed to.
Only when you have approved the basis of charging for fees and services should your designer or decorator proceed with your project.
Glass tile is by far the hottest tiling material on the market nowadays. It's being requested by most of my client. It's so popular because it can be used everywhere, in my case I used it as tile accents on bath area and back splash on my kitchen. You can use it anywhere that you would use ceramic tiles. It also has a more affordable twin--recycled glass tile. Glass maintains its luster and high quality when re-formed, and many varieties of glass tile look just like new tile. And you don't have to worry about glass tile being more prone to break or shatter. I strongly suggest that you choose the right adhesive. It is a common problem when glass tile is not installed correctly or when the wrong adhesive is chosen that moisture gets trapped under the glass tiles. This can cause severe mildew and mold growth over time. They suggest that you use a sand-based thinset adhesive (ABC Tile Bonding Adhesive) to help keep this problem from occurring.
If you are doing the installation yourself, bring exact measurements and a detailed drawing or a set of blueprints to the showroom, so that a salesperson can help you specify the order. If you are using a professional to install your design, let him or her handle the order to avoid any finger-pointing should a shortage of glass tiles or missing trim pieces occur, resulting in a delay.
Simple glass tile installations can often be handled by do-it-yourselfers, but others require the experience and skill of a professional. After spending good money for a quality product, you may not want to take a risk by spoiling it with poor craftsmanship.

Your bedroom is the most important room in the house, so than your living room, bathroom, kitchen. Regardless of its size, it’s the room where you ought to feel most comfortable. Even if your room is small, more like of a shoe box, you can make most out of it if you only plan. It’s all about organization.
CLUTTER is STRESSFUL! Ask anyone.
The good news is that you don’t need a lot of space to be organized. A floor to ceiling shelf will do, most especially if you have a high ceiling, maximizing its potential for your organizational and space saving plan. Drawers and shallow boxes under the bed are great for storage of linens. A few key comforts can take your bedroom from the realm of purely comfortable to downright homely. While a few well placed art works, some family memorabilia such as photo and a good lamp next to a reading chair completes the relaxing bedroom.
