Navigation on this site is somewhat awkward, but with just a few changes it won’t even be noticeable. The posts are centered down the page and there are both left and right navigation bars. There is a few formatting issues going down the right hand side of the page, as you have to find the right sided menus after some mega-scrolling all the way down to the bottom. On the left hand side you will find a series of advertising, the blogroll, and the friends list. On the right hand side you will find the recent posts menu, categories section, ads, and feedreader. The categories list is pretty comprehensive, if you have some specific renovating ideas in mind you will be able to find some tips fairly easily. Check out the links on architecture, bathroom, bedroom, dream homes, furniture, garden, home gadgets, ideas, kitchen, tips and tricks, and a miscellaneous section.
I am going to go with a 3.5 for this one. I thought the blog was well laid out, despite some formatting issues. There were appropriate pictures that contributed to the posts and were appealing for the reader. Content I did not have any problems with, and the blog is certainly unique in both its design and its niche. I think the left navigation menus can be moved around a little so that the ads are maybe below the menus which are the meat of the blog. And the right navigation bar needs to be readjusted though I suspect the pictures are putting the format out of wack. This blog is doing very well with its 480 readers so there are few suggestions I could offer outside of that. Take a look at it if you are a home tinkerer, you will be happy you did!
