Five kinda weird but Smart Steps to make your home smell amazing!!

Momma always used to say, “A clean home is a happy home!” and who doesn’t love a clean, happy home! A home that smells clean and fresh is simply the best, so we have picked our favorite five hacks that will make your home smell amazing!



Homemade Bath and Shower (that actually works!)

Skiptomylou has an absolutely amazing cleaner that combines two great products into one super cleaner!

This dawn and vinegar cleaner is a powerful cleaner and it will leave your home smelling fresh & clean!



Smelly Mildew on Towels….Yuck!

We have the best solution to get your towels fresh and smelling lovely!

Wash your towels on the hottest water setting possible and add 1 cup of vinegar. If the mildew smell is still there, wash your load again with very hot water and ½ cup of baking soda. When your clothes are done washing, place them in your dryer on the highest heat setting. Make sure the towels get completely dry before taking them out.



Getting your Toilet Lemony Fresh!

 Pour a packet of lemon flavored Kool-Aid mix into your toilet, and use the toilet brush to scrub away the stains. The citric acid from the mix will dissolve and break down stains.


Essential Oils on your furnace filter!

This is by far my favorite trick to a wonderful smelling home!

A few drops of Eucalyptus in the spring, Clove in the fall or Peppermint in the winter…..Smells heavenly!


Simply yet effective way to rid your house of pesky odors!

2019 Take Notice Trends!


2019 has a lot going for it!

So we thought it would be fun to give you our top 5 trends that make 2019 the year  for new flooring!!


made in the usa.jpg


Take Notice Trend #1: BUY U.S.A. MADE!

Did you know?

Our Carpeting is made right here in the U.S.A.!

That is probably why carpeting is still the #1 choice for flooring!

Our Tarkett Permastone Line is made in Florence, Alabama

(read more about it here)

Take Notice Trend #2: Smooth is classic but 2019 is all about TEXTURE!!

From wire brushed, distressed and hand-scraped…..texture is where it is at!

Beautiful Tarkett Laminate in a distressed or hand-scraped look is definitely the trend for this year or maybe you’re looking for hardwood?

Well, we have you covered!

Check out Anderson Hardwood’s Colonial Manor – beautiful and durable.


Take Notice Trend #3 – Coastal Decor!

One color that is taking 2019 in waves is green!

From Aegean Teal to Fort Pierce Green…..These soft coastal colors can add a splash!

Keep it simple! From a simple throw blanket to some soft green pillows….the coastal trend is an easy way to update any space!

Looking for inspiration? Check out The Creativity Exchange for ideas!





Take Notice Trend #4 – Herringbone!

LVT reigned supreme in 2018 and while this excellent product is still going strong in 2019….the idea of laying has been tweaked a bit!

And if vinyl flooring is more your style – especially since it is so easy to clean and incredibly affordable – IVC has some amazing Herringbone Styles to choose from!

Oooo….how about an updated back splash in a beautiful Herringbone Pattern?


Take Notice Trend #5 – Eco Friendly Flooring!


Here at The Carpet House, Inc., we take being kind to our environment very seriously! Which is why we were one of the first in the area to offer Mohawk’s Smart strand Carpets and Godfrey Hirst Wool Carpet! Both of these products are excellent choices for the E Friendly Home Owner!

Check out both by clicking the icon!
