32. When installing the bathtub put kerbs on the wall, where it is joined with the tiles.

33. Stretch ceilings are super! Make them at once in the entire apartment.  http://modernline.in.ua/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/voda11.jpg

34. The toilet, bathtub (and everywhere, where there is a lot of moisture) require a suspended ceiling. It does not swell, does not fall off, but the most important thing – if you was filled by the neighbors, bottled water is not widely in your apartment, but in the ceiling. The ceiling is just slack and the water remains inside. Then you call the masters, they film part of the ceiling, pour out water, and set it back. http://www.laspihills.com/images/stories/remont/1/5.jpg

36. Make a hidden storage space in kitchen or in toilet for buckets, rags, chemicals, and other housekeeping accessories.

37. Door handles with sharp corners – occasionally somebody touches their by hand or something else, it’s painful and tears off clothes.http://moedelo.od.ua/img/89797.jpg
