Will Replacing Carpet with Wood Floors Add Value to Your Home?

Will Replacing Carpet with Wood Floors Add Value to Your Home? It’s not so much a question of if replacing the carpet in your home will add value, it’s more of a question of it’s a better fit for your lifestyle. Ask any real-estate agent if you should switch out old carpet for new wood, laminate, engineered, or bamboo floors, and you will always receive a resounding “yes”, especially if they have any idea of what they are talking about, and hopefully your agent knows what they are talking about. Most new homeowners or those renting will always pay more money for a space with wood flooring; it’s modern, hip, sexy, and is much more durable compared to carpet, which if it gets stained, torn, soiled, or water logged, it will need to be replaced. This can happen frequently. Another issue with carpet is that a lot of people have allergies and carpet is dust heaven. Not only that but carpet is hard to clean, I mean really clean. Everyone has their own opinions though, some people want the feel of soft luxury underneath, this is when a nice carpet comes into play, while others prefer the look and feel of hardwoods. Not only is it personal, but it can also be financial, as it can be a lot cheaper to install carpet over new hardwoods. Today, however, the homeowner has choices, as laminate and vinyl have pushed the boundaries of design and usability and can be as affordable as laying down new carpet. So, our answer is Yes, wood floors will add value to your home in most...
Are Vinyl ‘LVT’ Floors Waterproof?

Are Vinyl ‘LVT’ Floors Waterproof?

Are LVT Floors Waterproof? LVT flooring is waterproof, in fact, this was the primary reason it was created; a super tough, resilient, waterproof flooring material that was perfect for restaurants, businesses, basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and even outdoor flooring usage. But is it right for your next project? LVT really is the only wood-like flooring that you can count on to be waterproof, not engineered, laminate, hardwood, or bamboo. Of course you could go with a nice ceramic wood imitation tile, but then added costs like grout come in to play. Unlike tile or wood flooring that is much more permanent and hard to switch out, LVT is quickly becoming the go to flooring product to quickly change the look and feel of a space.  LVT comes any feel and design you can think of because of 3D printing technology, this gives depth and realism to the flooring. Some questions you may want to consider; where will you be putting the flooring? How much foot traffic will it receive? How long do you want it to last? Does it absolutely need to be waterproof? What price point can you afford? Now, more than ever, LVT looks like real wood flooring, of course it can’t replace a real hardwood floor, or the feel of one. But when it comes to adding flooring that is super durable, long lasting, waterproof, LVT is the way to go. Take a look at our full line of LVT products by clicking here.

Utah Interior Design Spotlight with Avatar Design Group

Avatar Design Group first caught our eye with their elegantly executed Caffe Niche remodel. Pulling off a coffee shop transformation into a dinner destination is no mean feat, and was envisioned with the keen eye of Chef Ethan Lappe, whose local approach to food and menu is appetizing to our senses. As for the gorgeous interior, refined surfaces polished to gleaming hint at upscale, while organic materials, so popular in today’s hip Salt Lake City restaurant scene, are expertly placed, lending a European “je ne sais quoi” feeling and accomplishing one of Salt Lake’s most beloved interiors. As for other Avatar Designs, well, they’ve worked with Healing Homes and Intermountain HealthCare, Alta Lodge, and the University of Utah’s James L. Sorensen room. Their designs don’t stop at commercial, in fact, most of their work includes gorgeously executed residential homes and condos. Living along the Wasatch Front, residents have many choices for interior designers and firms to work with, not many of which are worth your attention. We highly recommend Avatar’s design team as their skills will far exceed your expectations....
Flooring Tip Dirt Causes Floor Scratches

Flooring Tip Dirt Causes Floor Scratches

Flooring Tip Dirt Causes Floor Scratches This may seem like an obvious flooring tip, but so many people don’t adhere to keeping flooring clean of dirt and debris. When you walk on your floors, especially with shoes or boots and there is any kind of dirt, rocks, or small, hard, objects on your floor, even if they are microscopic, then the force of impact from your shoe driving this debris into your floors is a real reason why you have scratches. Perhaps you’ve noticed your floors have a film over them, and they don’t look nearly as good as they used to. That’s due to dirty floors. So let’s prevent this from happening by keeping your flooring clean. Sweep, mop, spot clean, and pick up garbage and dirt from your floors. Make sure you use the right cleaner for your type of flooring though. The higher the polish and high gloss finish of your flooring the more likely they are to look scratched, literally every scuff, dent, and scratch will show up. Why not have a spot at the front door where you take off your shoes, this will keep your floors clean, and it’s much more inviting to have your shoes off in your home. It make take some training of your guests though, as americans love to have their shoes on in the house. Of course it is possible to refinish your floors, but it’s costly, time consuming, and takes it’s toll on the life of your floors. We recommend Pallmann floor cleaning products for all of your floor cleaning...
