Shamel 935

I suppose for most people, this is probably as exciting as watching
paint dry, but we decided what we're doing with our floors downstairs
and even a bit upstairs. The carpeting in the living room is actually
pretty boring and nondescript (plus I didn't have a photo of it).
We're pretty happy with the flooring we picked out for the bathroom,
and we liked it enough that we decided to spend some extra money
and get the kitchen floor done with it as well. It's called Shamel 935
and I have no idea why it's called that, but we think it looks a lot like
some of the sandstone we have around here and will really make both
our downstairs bath and kitchen a lot more attractive. See...I told you
it would be exciting!

I like it. It does have a sandstone look. Did you put a heat pad under it? Heated bathroom floors are decadent, but wonderful.

Tom said... heated floors though. For half of the year we're anywhere from 80-100 degrees so maybe a chilled floor is what we need!

Ast majority of wealthy Canadians self-made millionaires:
The vast majority of affluent Canadians are self-made millionaires, suggests a survey released Tuesday.
Ninety-four per cent of respondents with investable assets of $1 million or more said they have made their money on their own, either as self-made professionals and/or business owners, the survey from BMO Harris Private Banking states.
Only six per cent said they inherited the majority of their wealth.

“These findings speak to the strong entrepreneurial environment in which we live,” said Andrew Auerbach, senior vice-president and head of BMO Harris Private Banking.
“They reveal a culture of drive and determination among Canadians and recognize that we live in a country where self-made success is encouraged and rewarded.”
The study goes on to say that 80 per cent of respondents — in an online survey conducted by Harris/Decima of 459 Canadian adults with $1 million or more in investable assets — enjoy greater wealth than their parents.
Seventy five per cent also said they are currently the same or better off than they were before the onset of the 2008 recession.
The numbers drop — to 58 per cent — when survey respondents were asked if their children will be able to manage their inheritance.
“This underscores the need for Canadians, regardless of income level, to make financial literacy a priority for our kids,” said Auerbach.
