The start of the New Year can prompt homeowners to take a good look at the interiors of their homes and think about ways to create a fresh new look. Flooring is a good place to get started on the right foot. After all, we’re all going to be seeing a lot of our living rooms and family rooms over the long winter months.
Since flooring is a long-term investment, homeowners are cautious about choosing not only the hottest current trend in carpeting, wood, and other flooring options, but they also want to be sure their selection will withstand the test of time.
Some of the growing trends, like bamboo and reclaimed wood flooring, also are hap ...

By Monica Guhde
Owner, Guhde Flooring America
Today’s eco-friendly flooring options allow you to have a gorgeous home without walking all over the environment. Eco-friendly floor products include those that are recyclable, and those that are made from either a percentage of recycled materials or a natural, sustainable, or quickly renewable resource.
Many beautiful, durable, and stain-resistant carpets today are made from recycled plastic soda bottles. In fact, every square foot of PET polyester carpet fiber contains the equivalent of five recycled plastic soda bottles.
The Tribor line, from Hearth and Home, is an example of reliable, versatile carpeting made from recycled materials ...

When interviewing contractors for a major home remodel, keep in mind that you aren’t just buying labor and tools, you’re also paying for experience and design direction.
Therese H. from Mentor learned this while working with One Man and a Hammer on her recent kitchen remodel. Therese knew the kitchen had to change, and she identified a couple “big ideas” the remodel needed to communicate, but for the specifics she turned to the design team at One Man and a Hammer.
The team’s ability to adopt and implement her unique sensibilities, as well as their flexibility and patience when searching for the perfect cabinet color is what convinced Therese that One Man was a ...

Prevent Your Pipes From Bursting

By Raj Rai
Owner, WeatherKing Heating & Air Conditioning
Even though you cannot see them, pipes carrying water throughout your home can cause lots of damage if they freeze and break during winter’s frigid weather. As water expands from liquid to solid when it freezes, it puts pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. If they burst, they can cause flooding and costly water damage to your home.
The most susceptible pipes are those that are exposed to the cold air, such as outdoor hose bibs, pipes that run against exterior walls, and water supply pipes in unheated areas including inside kitchen cabinets, attics, basements, and garages. Here are some t ...

What’s The Difference Between Ceramic...

Even the pros would be hard-pressed to spot the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile from a top-down view, so why shouldn’t you put ceramic tile outside?
Before getting too deep in the weeds, it’s important to clarify that porcelain is a ceramic material, but not all ceramics are necessarily porcelain. In the world of tile flooring, they’re often discussed and sold as two mutually exclusive products, so we’ll refer to porcelain ceramic tiles as “porcelain” and the remaining ceramic tiles as “ceramic."
While the basic process behind ceramic and porcelain tile production is the same (clay fired in a kiln), porcelain tiles are composed of mor ...

Putting Color To Work In The Kitchen

The famed Pablo Picasso once said, “Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No.” Even Picasso, one the most influential artists of the 20th century, who made a living using a color palette to make works of art, said there was no explanation as to why colors work together. And that is how homeowners have to approach color when trying to choose the right combinations for their homes. There are no hard and fast rules, mostly just personal preference.
There are, however, some general guidelines that will help you choose the right color combinations when re-designing the kitchen in your house.

Why One Man And A Hammer Uses Schlute...

Tile and stone work is a common way homeowners add value and aesthetic appeal to bathrooms, but the stuff underneath the tile may be the most important part of the equation.
Many people see the shiny, clean appearance of a newly constructed tile shower and think “waterproof,” but that’s very rarely the case. Grout is designed to look nice and hold tile together, but it’s porous. Porous surfaces plus water means mold growing on the underlying walls. The solution to this problem is a waterproof membrane, placed directly underneath the tile layer, that drains excess moisture out of shower before it becomes a problem.
Shower floors require one additional consideration. ...
