This planking also is radiant heat approved, which makes this product a great floor to be installed in any room near a fireplace or a heat source.

The intriguing look can help create an accent wall or artistic focal point inside of your room. If you are looking to add character to your space, here are three popular ideas for decorating with flooring on your walls. Let’s take a look! 

Ideas for Decorating Your Walls with Flooring:

Hardwood is one of the most popular flooring types that homeowners choose when covering their floors. When this trend emerged, hardwood floors made its way to the walls. Homeowners love this rustic look that adds character and charm to a space. They also enjoy it for its stability and easy-to-clean surface.

Idea No. 2: Tile.

You may not be surprised by the idea of having tile on walls. Backsplash has taken the design industry by storm, because of its design and style options. Recently, homeowners have been taking the trend outside of the bathrooms and kitchens to create a focal point within their room. Homeowners love this modern look because of its durability, easy installation, and vast selection.

Expert Remodeling Tips

You have saved. You have budgeted. You have dreamed. Finally, you have the chance to remodel your home. After a long and winding process, you are ready to take on the reins and embark upon this incredible journey. But before you begin, we want to share our seven expert remodeling tips that we have learned over the years. Let’s take a look! 

Expert Remodeling Tips:

1. Cozy is Key

While many homeowners strive for a stylish, trendy place, trends can come and go. The key to a remodel is to create a comfortable oasis for you and your family. When you focus on comfort, your home will become more of a relaxing sanctuary. And let’s be honest, when has cozy ever went out of style? 

2. A Timeless Masterpiece.

To reiterate our point made above, trends come and go. That is why you will want to focus on timeless renditions for your home. Sticking to a neutral color palette can help do the trick. By focusing on neutrals, you know your pieces will last a lifetime. Plus, neutrals are said to be more “cozy” colors. This way you master both comfort and timelessness all in one space. 

3. Spacious Storage

In a remodel, storage will be your main focus. While remodeling can be about updating, you always want to be conscious of your home’s storage situation. Whenever you are focusing on a new area of your home, try and think about all of the storage needs for that space.

4. Make it a Lifestyle

A remodel is a chance to start over and focus on your interests. It is the time to add unique features to your home that make you happy. Try and add special details to make the place unique to you.

5. Something Old, Something New

While new items are exciting, sometimes it can be a little unpractical. To help budget yourself better, try to find items you currently own that you can work into your new design. 

6. Add Character

With remodeling, there is a chance that you could lose your home’s special character. Be sure to accentuate the parts of the home that you love. If the ceiling is unique, paint the trim to emphasize its beauty. 

7. Set The Mood

Speaking of paint, paint can be one of the most crucial parts to a remodel. Paint can completely change the tone of a room; therefore, you want to be sure you know what mood you want in each room. For bathrooms, a light blue can create a bright, refreshing atmosphere. Take a look at each individual room and decide what mood/tone you want to be capitalized inside of that space.

If you need suggestions, our expert staff would love to assist you! Contact us or visit one of our showrooms to learn more.

Ways to Make a Small Bathroom Look Bigger

You may think that there is not a lot of room to work with inside of a small bathroom. With any small space, you are half right. Small bathrooms pose a difficult challenge because you cannot move around the plumbing without racking up a huge bill. Fortunately, we have 9 brilliant ideas that will hopefully save you time, money, and space.

Ways to Make a Small Bathroom Look Bigger:

1. Put on a Pedestal.

Pedestal sinks are a minimalistic sink styling that can save you a ton of space. If you have the option to choose a sink, be sure to opt-in for a pedestal sink. You will not regret it.

2. Be Open.

Open storage can save a lot of room, plus it can be used as a stylish decor piece. Open cabinets or dressers can showcase your towels, fancy decor, etc.

3. Let Little Details Shine.

Since you are going more low-key on a lot of your bathroom items, let the little details shine. Things like your mirror, light fixtures, and decorations can make quite the impact.

4. Sleek Shelving.

Finding sleek and narrow shelving can be important for your bathroom’s concept. You still want to be able to include important shelving and storage systems without sacrificing too much space. A great way to compromise is for you to buy sleek shelving. Items that can fit in small corners and do not take up too much room will do just the trick!

5. The Slide.

Instead of using doors that swing open, be sure to buy sliding doors. You will not believe the amount of space that this will save you!

6. Let Windows Do What They Do Best.

Do not place curtains or blinds on your windows. In a small space, windows are one of the best features that can help keep it open. Avoid bulky curtains and let the natural light flow throughout the space.

7. On the Rise.

Place your shower curtains higher than the normal height to give the illusion of a big space. By purchasing vertically striped curtains, you can help add to the illusion and create a larger-looking space.

8. Look Light.

When choosing a color scheme, choose light colors for your small space. Light colors will help open up your bathroom and reflect the natural sunlight.

9. The Glass Effect.

When in doubt, buy it in glass. Glass shelving and sink bowls can help open up your small space. The glass helps the eyes not recognize where the item begins and stops. It is the perfect solution for your tiny bathroom.

Why White Floors?

White floors have become a popular and trendy flooring choice that is taking over the design world. 

Pros: 

  • White floors open up your space. 
  • White floors create a sleek design for your room. 
  • White floors are unique and will make your home stand out from the rest. 
  • White floors can create a look of elegance and beauty in your space. 

Cons

  • White floors need to be cleaned every day, especially if you own pets or have children. 
  • White floors can pose a design challenge. You will need to be ready to put your “trendy” design pants on and create a unique design that will match your unique floors.  

How to Keep Them Clean:

We talked a lot about how you will need to clean your white floors, but let us dive deeper into how you can keep them sparkling and marvelous.

1. Sweep daily. If you do not have a lot of foot traffic on your floors, a light sweep will do. But if you have dogs and/or kids, you will want to buy a high-quality vacuum. We recommend calling the manufacturer of your flooring to make sure you are using the correct vacuum. 

2. Mop. If you purchased white tile flooring, you may find a steam mop to come in handy. You want to make sure that you are mopping your floors at least once a week to remove all dirt, dust, and particles from the floors.  

Tips for Keeping The Beauty:

White floors can be stunning, but only if they are well-kept. You will want to make a “no-shoe rule” in your home if you decide to buy white floors. Trust us, this will help keep you sane.
