Save your floors from your pets
Just so you know? I love my job. I had the honor of representing Charles & Hudson at Shaw Floor’s media event to unveil the company’s new flooring partnership with HGTV. We learned about the new products (and they’re cool – more on that later this week!) And we were […]
You’ve probably heard of the term universal design, especially as it’s applied to helping people age within their homes. Yet universal design isn’t an age-specific term; at its core, universal design is about enhancing accessibility, function and performance within a space, regardless of a person’s age or physical condition. One […]
If you have carpeting in your home, you’re probably no stranger to spot treating when faced with unexpected spills and messes. At least once a year, however, it’s a good idea to steam clean your carpets, which will help remove dirt and debris, as well as prolong the life of […]
Whether you’re swapping out older carpet for a newer design or going with a different type of flooring, you’ll have to remove the existing carpet. And even if you’re calling in a professional for the installation, you can save money by removing the carpet yourself. First things first? Make sure […]
We recently traveled to Las Vegas for SURFACES, and for 2.5 days were immersed in the world of flooring. This was the first year that SURFACES co-located with StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas, creating a show that focused on both flooring and stone products. Although consumers tend to only purchase flooring every eight […]
After attending last week’s SURFACES flooring show in Las Vegas, we’ve got floors on the brain! One of the surprising facts we learned while at the show is despite flooring’s cost (it’s likely one of the most expensive purchases you’ll make, aside from a home), the majority of consumers are […]
One of the most brilliant modern day conveniences is radiant heat flooring. The demand for this feature is becoming stronger each year and not only are people installing it in kitchens but its becoming more popular in common areas and bathrooms. There is nothing more cozy than stepping on warm […]
Earlier this week, we tested the stain-fighting powers of The Home Depot’s Platinum Plus carpet. Next up? Martha Stewart Living carpet, available in 36 designs and four constructions. Martha Stewart’s products are known for being classy yet functional, and the carpet is no exception. The carpets are treated with Anso […]
We’ve been looking forward to the 2010 Greenbuild Expo in Chicago for a few months now and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The show keeps growing year after year and not only are the numbers of exhibitors increasing but attendance is rising and you could certainly feel the buzz and energy […]
I can’t get enough of unconventional materials used in a DIY project, or even ordinary objects used in extraordinary ways. My latest inspiration? Flooring created from pennies. What a brilliant way to use something that is really kinda worthless. Sure, you can collect jars of pennies and eventually cash them […]
When my husband and I purchased our home, a major selling factor was the kitchen. It had been added onto our 110+ year old house within our lifetimes, was spacious, had lots of storage, and was definitely large enough for the two of us to be in the space simultaneously […]
File this one under “What will they think of next?” You’ve heard about using reclaimed wood for floors, but how about accessories? Ting London, the brainchild of designer Inghua Ting, has launched a line of floor tiles made from vintage leather belts. A group of in-house artisans selects belts that […]
Whenever I am visiting my family at home, my mother has the same complaint about her house: the wood floors. She’d love to refinish them but with an elderly dog, other projects to tackle and a limited budget, it’s not in the cards in the near future. I inquired about […]
I’m a big fan of durability. If you take the time to choose a product, fork out the cash for it and then fall in love using it (or in this case walking on it), that product better be there for the long haul. Maybe that’s the polar opposite of […]
Yesterday we had an opportunity to visit the Shaw Floors campus in Dalton, GA. We were given a behind the scenes tour of the facilities and shown the process it takes to bring a carpet line from conception to market. Shaw also introduced us to their latest product, Tigressa SoftStyle. […]
Our favorite This Old House host Kevin O’Connor joins three other home design experts as they share their Spend or Splurge tips when it comes to outdoor furniture, flooring, appliances and outdoor grills.
Before I moved into my current apartment, I took a tour of the building with the developer. During the renovation, he and his crew tried to use as many recycled materials and environmental practices in the building. I noticed the lining of the window sills were an odd material, like […]
When water damage occurs, the first step is assessing the source of the water and thus its category. This is important because the category determines what can be saved and what can’t be saved. Let’s start with the easy diagnosis: Category III Water Remember, category III water has either sewage […]
If you are building a house, or remodeling, it is a great time to explore green options, including your flooring. Green flooring is never “no impact” or “zero emissions,” but choosing a green flooring does reduce impact on the environment. When it comes to choosing green flooring, you have many […]
