Kitchen Revamp - What Flooring Is Right For Me?

Whether it's for Taco Tuesday, wine night with the ladies, homework sessions, or chow time for our four-legged friends — the kitchen is truly the space we congregate in the most.  Because of that, our kitchen floors can take a bit of a beating — so it's important to choose flooring that is up for the task. Ideally our kitchen floors will be beautiful, easy, and of course, durable. Luckily, nowadays the variety of materials, colors and textures are endless — so it’s just a matter of knowing and narrowing down your options.  Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone tile are classic and smart choices for high traffic areas. They are low maintenance, yet extremely tough. Tile is a favorite amongst many for its extreme durability, and resistance to stains and moisture.  Wood is another widely popular choice for today's kitchens. A great option for those seeking the seamless lines of an open floor plan — wood feels soft underfoot and adds warmth to any space. Today's prefinished wood floors stand up especially well against heavy traffic and any accidental spills.  Vinyl is also a strong option to consider. Perhaps the easiest to maintain and the cushiest to stand on when cooking those big holiday meals — vinyl can provide a beautiful aesthetic, without breaking the bank. Just be sure to select a textured vinyl to provide traction, as this flooring can be extra slippery when wet. 
Prepping Your Home To Sell This Season

Prepping Your Home To Sell This Season

Ask any real estate agent, and they will tell you that Spring and Summer are considered the “hot” seasons to sell your home. This should come as no surprise, as most families want to purchase and be settled in time for the new school year.  If you're getting ready to sell this season, it’s a smart idea to make some small improvements that can greatly improve the salability of your home. For the most part, improvements need only to be simple and inexpensive — but buyers will undoubtedly notice the difference!  Clean Things Up  It may seem obvious, but dust and dirt can be a real turnoff to prospective buyers who are looking for their “new" dream home. To make a great impression, consider having your flooring and window treatments professionally cleaned to freshen up the space.  You should also take some extra time to de-clutter. Not only will this help with the sale, but it will also help with your move! Clear old clothing from your closet rods and show off some floor space. Also, don’t forget to tidy your pantry and kitchen cabinets.  Give Your Bath a Bath  Everyone loves a beautiful, serene and clean bathroom. But even if yours is less than updated, there are some small fixes you can do for big impact with buyers.  If your toilet seat cover is old and discolored, replace it with a new one (it's inexpensive and very easy). Change out your shower liner and curtain for something new and neutral. And for a really big impact, have your tub recaulked — it won’t go unnoticed. Let The Sun Shine In  There's nothing like great natural lighting, so be sure to keep draperies light and airy, and of course — open! Replace any missing or dim light bulbs, and try to avoid unflattering florescent lighting whenever possible.  Do Some Touch-Ups  You might love your green bedroom, but it's safe to say not all buyers will feel the same. Give your home a fresh coat of paint in a neutral grey or beige. There's nothing quite like it to easily revamp a room — and luckily it's extremely affordable.  There are many other small 'touch-ups' you can do around the home that are easy and inexpensive. Consider changing out dated hardware on cabinets, and tossing those decade-old vertical blinds. You'd be surprised how much impact a brand new clean doormat can make!  Make Your Floors Fabulous Again The floors in our homes take a serious beating, and if yours look worn or outdated, it will likely have an effect on the salability of your home. If you're opting for an update, it's always smart to keep new flooring neutral so that it will appeal to a wide range of buyers. Also, it's a great idea to consult with your realtor to determine what type of flooring is most desirable in your neighborhood.     
Create Perfect Custom Area Rugs From Wall-to-Wall Carpet

Create Perfect Custom Area Rugs From Wall-to-Wall Carpet

Flooring alternatives like tile, slate, wood, and laminates are gaining in popularity across the country. All of these types of floors are being used in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, and bedrooms. They often need additional design and functional touches that area rugs can provide. But it’s often very difficult to find just the right rug for your space. Even when you do find a rug that’s the right size, it’s even more difficult to find a rug with the colors, patterns, and feel that you want and need. Here’s a tip that the top interior designers use: get the ideal area rug by having wall-to-wall carpet cut and formed perfectly for your spaces. For example, think of that space beneath your kitchen table. You probably won’t be able to find the right rug to fit there. But you can go to your local carpet store, pick out the perfect carpet color and pattern with terrific stain protection and buy just the amount you need for a circular rug (or any shape that you need for your space). How about your hallways? Finding the right “runners” is next to impossible. You don’t need much carpet, just the right amount. A custom carpet would be perfect. And here’s the other thing that interior designers know: these custom carpets are usually much less expensive than area rugs! The process is simple. A professional carpet cutter will shape the carpet to your exact specifications, add any necessary backing, and sew or prepare the edges so they won’t fray. And your local carpet retailer will be able to recommend someone to cut and prepare your new rugs. It may sound difficult, but it’s actually very simple and relatively inexpensive. Just follow these steps. Measure your spaces and write down the perfect size for your area rug needs. Take pictures of your spaces and be sure to them with you when you shop! Visit your local carpet store. Tell the salesperson what you’re interested in doing. Show them the pictures and work together to pick out the perfect carpet color and pattern. Enjoy your new area rug! And here’s a tip to save even more money: shop for your area rug carpet choices when you’re shopping for full carpeting for other rooms. You’ll be able to combine the square footage to save even more. So get busy! Look around your house for those spaces where you’d love an area rug but couldn't find any to fit the space or your decorating tastes. You now know how to make your own.
