Hey, this is just my opinion, I am not an expert.
If you came to me, it would be adhered. No ceramic strips and any of that other business- because I- am the expert

I agree that you are an expert at installing. And a very good one. Very nice job. I recommend you right away.

Decoration is different. To become an expert you should take decoration courses in my opinion and get a diploma.

This is why on a renovation project there is a Decorator and he does just that. Colors, textures, matchings, etc, etc, etc. i have renovated properties and I have learned this lesson: A decorator in 2015 has an incredible fantastic knowledge. They are like magicians.

But when we think the budget is too short, we improvise without a decorator. But take my "non-expert" advices for your next improvisation project, it will be even better.

You have very long lines going from front to rear and this is what we should avoid since the room is not very wide. You are forcing the eyes in this direction. We want to do the opposite and forget about this direction which is too long.

So it should be side to side in my opinion. If you see it in your mind, this would cut the lenght effect from front to rear since there would be less lines due to wider wood. So the floor would look more proportionnal.

Try it on your next project and compare.

Everybody know that if you are fat, you must wear a shirt or a dress with strips going from your head to your toe to look longer. And if you are too thin, then you should wear a t-shirt or a dress with lines going from side to side to help the eyes forget that you are too long. If you are too short then you would wear vertical stripes to look higher. So I am sorry to tell you Ernie, you have been wrong 68 years.

Click and look at this image from France Paris and you will understand immediatly.

Ernie, don't take it personnal. On the highway, all the old house have a roof that bend in the middle. The building techniques have changed and the new roofs will never bent and we use less wood than before. So we live in a world where all the old techniques are improved each 2 years.

We all are in the same situation in our professionnal lifes. You are not alone.

I am sorry.
