Plenty of people around the world sit on the floor instead of using chairs and sofas, and they are perfectly comfortable. You wouldn't call them uncivilized, would you?

Meh. More warm than cold, I guess. But hiring a "cleaning lady" is pretty ridiculous. Maybe more readers of AT can afford it, but I sure can't and wouldn't even if I could.

Actually, I think they're pretty cute!

What! The pegboard is a good idea, but this placement is absolutely awful. All it takes is just one of those pans or coffeecups falling off the peg, and that shiny new iPad has a crack a mile wide. I get the pegboard idea, but placing coffeecups and heavy pans around it seems really dangerous.

This is awesome! Vibrant, refreshing change from the usual designer/showroom kid's rooms. Plus, for once it looks like a room the kid would actually enjoy and maybe choose for herself!

I think it really depends. With very close family and friends, I don't think it's a big deal - especially if you're aware that they could use some help, and you have a good idea of how they would receive it.

With people you don't know very well, however, then I think that can be really inappropriate. You don't quite know what their situation is, and you don't quite know how they would respond. In that case, just clean up after yourself.

The other thing, too, is what's being cleaned. Dishes and shoes are pretty anonymous things, but when it comes to a workdesk, laundry, or other personal items, you might just want to leave it be.

I know for me, I would love it if someone did my dishes, cleaned my floor, whatever. But I would probably be a little weirded out if they went through and rearranged my workdesk. See what I mean?

That being said, though - if someone does it and you're not comfortable with it, that does not remotely mean that they are being intentionally condescending towards your stuff. As we can see from this conversation, they probably meant perfectly well. So relax.

Seems like a fire hazard to me, too. Plus, I'd have a hard time finding a space for it. Also - it's "they're", not "their".
