This Crackle Glaze Tile Trend is Taking Over the Kitchen and Bath

#Ihavethisthingwithtiles, and it’s sort of unfortunate because I’ve never actually picked any of my own.

The 10 Commandments of Rug Shopping

Rugs—yes, you can live without them, but life would be a lot less cozy, cushiony, and potentially colorful without them. They really pull a room together and can even help dampen sound, which is a godsend for anyone in tight quarters with noisy neighbors. Problem is, they’re one of the hardest home purchases to make because they’re available in so many sizes, styles, and materials. Oh, and did I mention how their care and maintenance runs a spectrum, from hosedown-able to professional hand-shampoo required?
