Visiting 10 Hindu temples in 10 days, all dedicated to the planets and deities, was a window into the concentrated energy and spiritual life of how Hindus may pray.

In choosing floors, your lifestyle is the primary consideration. As the foundation of a room, options are numerous: hardwood, stone, laminate, cork, bamboo and carpeting, to name just a few. Surfaces can be covered with rugs, carpet, paint and even furs to further enhance the overall feeling, comfort and flavor of your room.
