Buyers Guide Series: Hardwood


Highly durable and practical hardwood floors.

Hardwood doesn’t only have the ability to transform a room into a bucolic, warm space; it is also highly durable, practical and can increase the value of your home significantly. It is no surprise then, why we have so many different styles of hardwood flooring to choose from. For many homeowners, such variety in both cost and taste can make buying new hardwood flooring a bit overwhelming and even discouraging. But buying the right hardwood flooring for your home doesn’t have to be a nightmare.

When buying hardwood, it’s important to have an understanding of the basics and that means getting to know and choosing the hardwood species and grade for your project. Being a natural product, each species of hardwood has a distinct grain pattern which makes them unique and valuable. Exotic hardwood such as bamboo, for example, is very popular because of its distinct color and grain patterns. Once you’ve established the species and grade you prefer, finding flooring within your budget will become much easier.

Keep in mind that buying prefinished hardwood floors that are already stained and finished is an option. Though factory or prefinished hardwood floors can be significantly more expensive up front, a factory finish is nevertheless warranted by the manufacturer and makes for a more efficient and convenient installation. Additionally, prefinished floors often last much longer than an on-site finish, meaning you save money over the long term.

Other things to consider when shopping for hardwood flooring are dimensions and size of the planks, photo sensitivity (how natural light will affect the color and look of your floors over time), as well as the wood’s hardness or ability to resist damage from common use. With proper care, top quality hardwood can last a lifetime; follow your manufacturer’s guidelines for information on weather-proofing, floor updates and suitable cleaning products. Whether oak, hickory, or any of the other of the many species available, hardwood flooring will add charm and natural beauty to your home.

The flooring in your home is the literal and metaphorical foundation on which to base the rest of your décor.

When it comes to making your house into a home that reflects your style and personality, one of the most important aspects to consider is the floor. The flooring in your home is the literal and metaphorical foundation on which to base the rest of your décor. When you are first deciding on what flooring materials to consider, it can be very challenging. Between carpet, hardwood, laminate, and vinyl, it can be hard to pick a material that has the perfect combination of color, texture, durability, and cost.

However, one of the most popular flooring options is recent years has been stone tile. While the upfront investment can be significant, it will also last forever. It’s rock. It’s been around for thousands of years and will likely be around for thousands more. Stone will never have to be refinished and only requires minimal cleaning and maintenance to remain beautiful.

Additionally, stone tile comes in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes. Also, the tiles can be arranged in any pattern. You could go for a sleek, minimalist look with no grout and consistent color, or you could go for a complex mosaic pattern with many colors and textures. No matter your personal style, there is a stone tile set out there that will compliment it perfectly.

Stone tile is also naturally moisture-resistant, in addition to being durable. This makes it ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, and homes with pets or small children. Keep in mind that durability also means that it is very hard, so it might be fatiguing to stand on for long periods. If you use stone tile in the kitchen, you may also need pads to stand on if you cook frequently.

In all, stone tile offers a variety of great options to complement your home. To see our selection of stone tiles, call to make an appointment with our mobile showroom today!

Buyers Guide Series: Perfect Carpeting


Styles range from plush to fringe, to texture to frieze.

Looking to refurbish your dingy old carpet but questioning yourself as to where to begin? Here are some tips and tricks to buying the perfect carpeting to spice up your space.

Start from the bottom up. A good padding will add support, strength, and that little bit of added cushion that you will treasure. The rubber or foam carpet padding also helps insulate your home to help control the temperature. Padding will also help keep your carpet stay young by preventing carpet backing and fibers from deteriorating. Don’t be afraid to ask for a professional opinion before you choose your carpet padding!

Choose your carpet style wisely because it will be looking up at you for years to come. Look at all the styles before you pick “the one”. Styles range from plush to fringe, to texture to frieze. Instead of picking the carpet based on looks, be sure to consider your lifestyle and how you will be using the carpet. If you plan on lying on the carpet and playing with your kids, maybe you will benefit from the plush style. Is the carpet going in the “special events only” dining room? Go for the fancier style that matches the room perfectly.

Don’t break the bank. Be sure to request an estimate for the materials and the installation separately. This way you will know exactly how much each element of the process will cost you. Be smart about the carpet choices for each room. To keep costs low, opt for a more affordable carpet for you guest rooms, while a stain-resistant carpet may be best for the family room.

Know the maintenance your new carpet will require. If you aren’t looking to vacuum every single day, don’t choose a carpet that is high maintenance. Textured rugs will more easily hide footprint marks and level loop carpets will resist dirt to make carpet clean up easy.

No matter which carpet you pick, be sure to be smart in your decision. Don’t skimp out on the high quality padding, pick the style that best fits your lifestyle, budget correctly, and do your research on all things maintenance. Soon you will be making carpet angels in your brand new carpet with a huge smile of satisfaction on your face.

Buyers Guide Series: Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl is one of the most exciting and cost-effective flooring options in the market.

Vinyl flooring has become increasingly popular and is among the top choices for durable and vibrant floor designs. Available in a wide range of colors, textures and patterns, vinyl is more varied and resilient than ever. Best of all, Vinyl’s true value is in its impeccable ability to imitate first-rate products such as wood, stone and even tumbled marble, giving you great flexibility and just the look you want at a fraction of the price.

Why Vinyl?

Vinyl comes in countless stylish designs and is among the top eco-friendly flooring materials available. Whether concrete slab, old ceramic tile, or old wood floors, using the right tools and with good surface preparation, vinyl flooring can be installed over just about any surface. Great stability and superior water resistance make vinyl a great choice for any space in your home, be it below or above grade level.

A Vinyl for Every Type

Vinyl is available in three styles—sheet, plank, and tile—allowing for great versatility and a broad range of installation options.

• Sheet vinyl usually comes in rolls between 6’ and 12’ wide, which makes an excellent option for large rooms. It is ideal in moisture-prone spaces such as bathrooms and basements, and its seamless application makes for a simple DIY installation.
• Plank vinyl looks nearly indistinguishable from hardwood flooring while being much easier to maintain, providing greater comfort and only at a fraction of the cost.
• Tile gives you the freedom to choose from limitless styles and with easily replaceable precision cut tiles, keeping your floors looking elegant and uniform is simple.

Wear Layer

When shopping for vinyl, pay close attention to wear layer. The thickness of your wear layer determines the longevity of your vinyl. While thicker wear layer is pricier, the increased protection from everyday damage saves you money over the long term. There are three types of finishes available for wear layers: no-wax vinyl, urethane and enhanced urethane. Enhanced urethane is the strongest of the three, ensuring your floors are durable and resilient.

Whatever style you choose, vinyl is one of the most exciting and cost-effective flooring options in the market and is sure to make your project come to life.
