When we moved in 2 years ago, the first [of many] odd thing we noticed were the excessively large and ugly registers throughout the home. I guess in the 1960s the thought was that a larger register would more evening disperse the air. Good thought, but it turns out that it doesn’t work that way. We couldn’t wait to get rid of these hideous registers. There are two in the living room that take up almost an entire wall. Since the carpet is cut out around then, we need to wait to remove them until our new flooring is install later in July.
