    Quatrefoil Design In The Home   You might not have known what to call it, but we can bet you’ve seen the quatrefoil design throughout the world of home décor and interior design.   Stylish, sleek, and a happy marriage between traditional and contemporary, quatrefoil seems to work in just about any home design. If you’re looking for visual intrigue that can easily complement other design elements — this two-toned pattern is definitely one to consider.   What exactly is the quatrefoil?   A popular ornamental motif found in architecture and fashion, the quatrefoil consists of four, partially overlapping, symmetrical circles of the same diameter. In Latin, the root of the word means “four leaves.” Although it feels super fresh and contemporary, the quatrefoil has actually been used throughout history, with its peak popularity occurring throughout the Gothic and Renaissance eras.   You can find quatrefoils in famous landmarks such as Notre Dame in Paris, the Reims Cathedral in France and the Doge’s Palace in Venice.   Many feel that quatrefoils symbolize harmony, symmetry and proportion — often conveying a feeling of good luck and fortune.     How do I incorporate quatrefoils into my home?   This timeless architectural pattern can work throughout the home, whether it be in the form of a tiled backsplash, or simply an accent pillow. For a larger design impact, the quatrefoil pattern has proven to be a popular and stylish choice for carpeting.   At Rite Rug Flooring, we have a selection of quatrefoil-patterned carpet that can effortlessly enhance any room. Either wall-to-wall, or simply as an area rug — this time-tested design will be relevant for years to come.

Man caves and entertainment spaces, are often in finished basements, game rooms or garages which can be prone to moisture. Most flooring that you'd use in the main living area of your home can work in this space, but being conscious of possible moisture exposure can help you make the best choice. It is very important to ensure that the foundation is correctly sealed before fitting the final flooring type.   Luxury vinyl tiles and planks (LVT/LVP) could be a great option for your man cave. LVT is available in a number of designs including incredibly realistic stone looks and LVP is available in many wood looks from natural to distressed planks. Luxury Vinyl can stand up to moisture and is great in an area prone to spills. Ceramic tile is also a good option but would be a bit colder under your feet than LVT or LVP. Engineered hardwood can be installed on foundations, but if temperature shifts and moisture are a serious concern, LVT and LVP may be a more durable choice.   If moisture is not an issue for you, then the options are wide spread. You can use hardwood, plush carpet or anything in between. When choosing these types of flooring, it is important to use a high quality underlayment to combat moisture and maximize warmth, comfort and soundproofing. There are endless ways to turn your underused space into the ultimate entertainment room and be ready for the game in no time.   Get your flooring search started today.
