When I was young, my favorite Aunt used to take seasonal decorating very seriously. She had boxes upon boxes of knick knacks to get out and dust off, which turned every surface into a fabulous (very kitschy) display. In the Fall, she changed the placemats, table runner, and napkins to red, golds, and oranges. She changed out all the hand-towels (pumpkins) and even changed the curtains (fall foliage). It was out of hand, and took her a full weekend to accomplish.
Who has time to decorate like this today! We’re in favor of keeping it simple. The floor you choose is a foundation, a background for your taste, and can help you with keeping your life and your seasonal decorations simple. Check out some of our room scenes below, along with a few decorating pointers.
What’s new in the world of laminate? Color variation, reclaimed wood looks, and subtle textures! These three hot flooring trends drove our latest releases in laminate flooring.
In this post, we’ll show you our three new looks: Global Reclaim laminate flooring, which is part of the Architectural Remnants collection; three new flooring colors in Forestry Mix which is in the Rustics Premium collection; and Millwork Block, which is also in Rustics Premium.
All three brand new products make use of different planks to create a highly varied board look, and have a realistic texture.
Typically, you’re advised to have some percentage of “waste” flooring when you do a project. Sometimes, people end up with some extra flooring at the end of a project, which in turn ends up occupying some serious storage space in basements and closets everywhere.
What to do with those extra pieces? It’s time to get creative with your leftovers! We’ll show you four innovative ways others have used their extra flooring.
If you missed NBC’s “American Dream Builders” on April 27, you missed a special appearance by Mara Villanueva-Heras, VP, Residential Marketing – Armstrong Floor Products.
The design competition show aired weekly on NBC on Sundays. In each episode, a team of designers competed in a variety of home renovation scenarios and one of the designers was eliminated at the end of each show.
Our new Architectural Remnants laminate flooring collection is so fabulous we decided we needed an equally fabulous way to get it the attention it deserved. We found that perfect fit with a popular blogging team known as Shanty2Chic. Sisters Ashley and Whitney from Texas are the women behind the blog who talk about everything DIY for the home. And these women know what they’re talking about – they have the power tools to prove it!
You’ve wanted a new floor for… forever, right? But you need the reassurance that you’re choosing the right floor. Armstrong can help. We offer two tools to help you get moving on that flooring project: the Floor Finder and the Project Estimator.
With Floor Finder, we recommend the flooring type best suited for your particular project based on your answers to 5 simple questions: room type, flooring look, your household activity level, your DIY level, and your budget.
In Customer Service, we often get the question, “Are vinyl and linoleum the same thing?” The answer is no. While linoleum is often used as a synonym for vinyl sheet, it’s more accurate to say that they’re both resilient floors – meaning they can restore their shape. Their only similarity is that linoleum and vinyl both come in sheet goods (on a roll rather than tiles).
Choosing Between Linoleum and Vinyl
I’m in the planning stages of my kitchen renovation, and I’ve considered all of the floors Armstrong makes. Right now, I’ve narrowed it down to linoleum and vinyl sheet. Vinyl sheet offers amazing visuals and the easiest maintenance. So why is linoleum on my short list? All the colorful options! While vinyl floors come in a wide range of colors, linoleum takes advantage of the entire spectrum of color. See the options here.
