It's IN!

The 2023 Floorcast

It's a New Year! Time to tackle your renovation and remodel resolutions from the ground up and we can help you get started! 

Posted 1/25/2023

With decorations neatly tucked away and post-celebration farewells made, we find ourselves taking a cleansing breath while turning to the clean slate possibilities of a beautiful new year. And per usual, we never lack in resolutions self-promised with ever more conviction than the year before. So why not enjoy a little inspiration to help finally make good on them all? Sure, as Flooring Experts we're pretty biased, but take our word for it, the right flooring choices really CAN make a difference! Here's proof. 

Resolution: Exercise More

No list of resolutions is complete without a plan to get more active! And although most people make a valiant effort in the months of January and February, as evidenced by jam-packed gym parking lots, the commitment can fizzle fast.  So why not try this year for longer lasting results? Build the home gym! It's a great way to multi-purpose a garage, basement, or bonus room.

The Floorcast: Opt for easy to clean, quiet, waterproof luxury vinyl. It can withstand a workout and do it in style. Outfit with your favorite machines, accessories and mats, then start making good on your commitment before you even walk out the door! 

Resolution: Eat Healthier

On your path to healthier living in 2023, we're sure you're rethinking the foods you put into your body just as much as the exercise you endure. So, you may need to be reminded just how many hidden calories are lurking inside your meals while dining out. If you're planning to make better food choices this year than last, no need to look any further than your very own kitchen!

The Floorcast: Two of the most popular kitchen flooring options in 2023 will be large-scale checkerboard tiles and waterproof engineered hardwood. Both are elegant, timeless, and wildly durable to hold-up to home cooks everywhere! 

Resolution: Get Career-Focused

Whether you're still working from home full-time post-pandemic or just finding yourself there a few days a week, you're likely resolving to being more focused this year. But if your workspace isn't, well... working, you may not be either. Don't let an unfinished office stifle your productivity or worse yet, career goals!

The Floorcast: A tried and true way to quiet and renew a space is to add a custom area rug or carpet tiles. The possibilities are endless and can be achieved faster than your next deadline! 

Resolution: More QT with Family

There's no denying the pride you can feel from the completion of a DIY project. But if you're resolving to get more quality time with the family in 2023, a Do-It-For-Me approach is a sure-fire way to get some time back! Tackle cozying up the living room or finally converting the bonus room into the ultimate game night and you're well on your way to fulfilling your family-first dreams.

The Floorcast: Game rooms can be so much more inspiring than the dark basements of yesteryear! And it's easy to achieve with light-grain hardwood floors or beautifully nubby, natural tone carpeting. Let the fun begin!
