Homeowners have lots of questions about grout, and Shawn from Guhde Flooring America has probably been asked all of them.
Grout is the paste, often composed of cement, that fills in the gaps between tiles. Advancements and varying needs in consumer grouts means that there are many variations, sealing methods, and cleaning techniques. Some grouts require sealing and cleaning to keep their attractive finish, and others don't.
Fortunately, you don't have to become an expert in grouts to make use of the best option in your home. Shawn's the grout guy, he'll be your expert:

Natural hardwood flooring offers a classic look and feel, but it might not be right for every home. Wood, even when it's sealed and protected, is still a porous, organic, material that's going to be vulnerable to dings, dents, scratches, and moisture. That means households with children, pets, and a lot of foot traffic probably aren't a good fit for natural hardwood floors. But they are for enhanced vinyl.
Vinyl flooring has come a long way in 20 years. Gone are the thin, one-piece vinyl sheets of "flooring" that look and feel cheap. Vinyl flooring can now mimic the appearance of natural wood and stone without sacrificing durability. The enhanced vinyl flooring at Guhde Flooring America is ...

A gorgeous bathroom still needs to be able to accommodate all of the basic bathroom functions. But you get bonus points if it looks and feels like a spa while you take your morning shower.
Master bathrooms can typically be split into two sections: the wet area and the dry area. Continuity and aesthetic agreement between these two hemispheres is essential to creating a cohesive design. In the featured Northeast Ohio bathroom, Cevin Cole and 7West Design made use of caramel tones on ceramic tile flooring, faux-wood wall planking, and a natural stone shower. Warm lighting from backlit wall niches completes the transformation from "everyday bathroom" to "inspired spa."
Here's Cevin Cole from 7 ...

Manager, Guhde Flooring America
When designing tile floors and backsplashes, it’s the little details that make the biggest impact. Most homeowners spend countless hours sifting through the endless options of available tile shapes, colors, and textures, but they often pick the grout as a mere afterthought. The color of the grout, however, can dramatically change the look of your flooring and walls.
While grout is used as a filler between tiles to bond them together and protect the edges so they don’t chip, esthetics also is a consideration as the grout can draw your eye to the beauty of the individual tiles or showcase the overall pattern.
Here are some tips to ...

Upstairs neighbors are the worst. They're the faceless monster that takes joy in creating creaks and thumps. They're the ne'er-do-well that seems to coordinate their furniture moving schedule with your sleep schedule. They're the villain of apartment living.
I have a confession to make. I am the upstairs neighbor. I just might be your upstairs neighbor.

Dear Downstairs Neighbor,
I am an adult human being that weighs more than 100 pounds, and if your griping is to be believed, your ceiling/my floor is composed of cardboard imbued with special powers to make it whatever the opposite of noise-cancelling is. Sadly, I don't mo ...

What To Consider When Buying Flooring

By Monica Guhde
Owner, Guhde Flooring America
There is a lot to consider when you choose flooring for your home. The decisions you make are likely to be based on a combination of appearance, comfort, durability, maintenance, and price.
Appearance
For many people, appearance is going to be at the top of the list. Putting budget limitations aside, everybody has in his or her mind an image of how they want their room to look. Since the floor is usually the largest surface in the room—apart from the ceiling—it has a major impact on the appearance of the rest of the room. If you plan to redecorate an entire room, the floor is the place to lay the foundation for color and style. Al ...
