Not sure what HIP TIPZ is?  Please click on Our Introduction to find out more.  Now, let's get down to business -it's time to roll:

 

HIP TIPZ #121

Since when is it hip to be square?  When it comes in the form of a square toilet!  Google 'square toilet photos'.  There are some pretty amazing designs out there.

 

HIP TIPZ #122

Looking for a green, sustainable alternative for your kitchen?  Check out IceStone's recycled glass countertops.  Not only are they durable, but they're attractive as well.

 

HIP TIPZ #123

Make Rover the envy of the neighbourhood by creating his very own custom, cozy dog bed.  Buy faux fur material, sew up 3 sides and fill with stuffing to the desired firmness.  Then sew up the 4th side to create a large pillow.  Voila - a luxurious, "designer" bed for your favourite 4-legged friend.

 

HIP TIPZ #124

A room can be transformed dramatically and cost effectively by just changing out the light fixtures.

 

HIP TIPZ #125

Is storage at a premium?  Be sure to include under seat drawers in your window seat design.

Charlene,

 

Initially, I thought that you were going to stop at 100, but, now I think you can go on forever.

David - Maybe it's similar to a fab pair of shoes.  They look great but can be pretty uncomfortable until you break them in.  I guess sometimes we have to suffer for fashion or in this case, design.  Hmmm, would there be a learning curve to using a square toilet?  The aim might be a bit crappy for a while LOL!  Anyway, enough of my potty mouth.  Pardon the puns, I just had to ;-)

Valerie - Yes, Twitter has sure made me become concise.  You have to wonder how some of these awful fixtures ever came to be in the first place.  Oh yes, the infamous hollywood light strips ... :-(
