custom area rug

There’s something magical about a custom area rug. It can completely transform a boring space into one that feels both warm and inviting. Certain spaces in your home, like an entryway or a dining room, make a great opportunity to make a statement with an area rug’s design. You can also add custom binding to the carpet for a one-of-a-kind product.

If you have ever been shopping for an area rug you know they only come in standard sizes. As we all know, not all rooms were created equal, and not all rooms look good with a boring rectangular or circle shaped rug. This is where a custom area rug can bring a lot of value. A custom area rug can be cut into any shape and any size. If you have angled or curved wall, a custom area rug is the way to go. Before ordering be sure you have the right dimensions so that the manufacturer can cut the corner with precision.

With warmer weather just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your outdoor living space in ship shape for family gatherings, entertaining and just relaxing. Flowers Flooring recommends starting with a good base such as a porcelain tile then working on the furniture, plant pots and décor.

Outdoor living space with porcelain towel

Porcelain tile for outdoor patios come in a wide variety of patterns and textures that resemble natural stone, brick, concrete, rock and even wood and look natural in an outdoor living space.  Porcelain tiles are clay-based materials, but they are fired at extremely high temperatures over 1200 degrees Celsius, so unlike ceramic tile they are very hard, durable and non-porous. This makes them resistant to scratching.

They are also resistant to UV fading. Porcelain tile is perfect for North Carolina weather conditions, as it is engineered to be frost proof. Unlike ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles are impervious to water penetration; in other words it does not absorb water and withstands outdoor conditions.

Choose a Floor for Your Outdoor Living Space

Unlike natural stone and timber, porcelain tiles are non-porous. That simply means there are no little holes for dirt and grime to get trapped in when used as the flooring for an outdoor living space.  In essence they are stain proof and require very little ongoing maintenance. This makes porcelain tile a very attractive outdoor tile, requiring an occasional sweep or clean with warm, soapy water.

Porcelain tiles come in a wide variety of finish from matte and semi-polished to gloss and textured. When selecting a tile for outdoor use, Flowers Flooring always recommends at least a matte finish. This means the surface of the tile will offer some slip-resistance. A textured surface provides greater slip-resistance, depending on how textured the surface is.

Porcelain tile really is the ideal flooring for outdoor living spaces.

Hardwood Accent Wall

Hardwood flooring can be installed many different ways, even on a wall – called a hardwood accent wall. Hardwood makes a stunning accent wall that will make your home the envy of the neighborhood. Creative accent walls create a visual interest and a focal point on an otherwise dull space.

“Hardwoods can be mixed to create a unique look. If you have a dark hardwood on the floor perhaps you want to go with something lighter on the walls. You can also use the same hardwood to create a seamless look,” says Catie Mullins, Flowers Flooring Sales Associate.

“We have a lot of customers inquiring about hardwood accent walls. It’s absolutely beautiful with the wide, hand-scraped hardwoods, but the possibilities are endless and completely depend on your specific style and home décor.”
