Stairway ideas that WOW!!

Stairways!!!
They can be a source of inspiration or decorating frustration. So we thought a few ideas might help turn that source of creative conundrum into a fountain of “I can totally do this!”

First: Does your family have a special saying, quote or scripture that exemplifies your family or home? Why not use those risers to inspire and express it!
image
BEAUTIFUL!!

Second source of inspiration: Rustic is fabulous! Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Its amazing what a touch of reclaimed wood can do to a dead space! And it looks georgeous!
image

Third bit to inspire: Lighting! I know right? Who knew something so obvious could have this much of a Wow effect!
image

Fourth Fantastic idea: Texture or patterned wallpaper. Take the mundane and make it extraordinary. With little expense and a little more effort this idea has impressive results.

image

Last but not least: Creative Combinations. I stumbled upon this beauty months ago on pinterest. Its files in my “Inspirations for the home I will never build.” The idea of combining wood and file is stunning.

WOOL CARPET: not your grandmas floor…..

image

Here at The Carpet House, we take pride in offering our customers the very best in flooring. From the latest design trends to quality flooring that wows!

image

That is why we are pleased to be the only one in our region to carry Godfrey Hirst Wool Carpet.
What is so special about wool?
Quite a bit!
1st – Wool is eco friendly and a renewable resource. Made from wool sheered from new Zealand sheep!
2nd – Wool is amazingly durable. The old saying is ” You’ll wear out before wool carpet does!” For a fraction higher in cost than standard PET or NYLON fiber…wool carpet has a longevity that the other two fibers can’t even come close to!!
3rd – Wool is hypoallergenic! Wool naturally inhibits the growth of dust mites and mold!
So if you are looking for an investment in luxury, durability and style….check out our selection of Godfrey Hirst Wool Carpet.

Smartstrand by Mohawk……The most amazing carpet EVER!!!

This post is biased! However, I am not employed by mohawk industries and I am not paid by Mohawk Industries to tell you about how amazing this carpet is. BUT…what I am is a mom of three kids under the age of eight. I am the wife of a welder and mixed martial artist. I like to clean….but to be honest I don’t LOVE it!

So if there is a product out there that makes my life easier, well, I am all for it. Smartstrand Carpet by Mohawk is certainly that product. So here is how it was…..

Family roomOne day my baby decided to dump her milk bottle on my carpet. Yep, she took the lid off that puppy and poured beautiful creamy milk right onto my lovely FORT ZACH Smartstrand Freize. The only problem was I didn’t know anything about it until a few days later when there was this wretched sour milk smell permeating every fiber of my being as I sat in my lovely family room. On my hands and knees I went crawling along until my stomach wretched and I found where the smell was coming from. I called up my mom and said, “AH, Mom! Help!” In her calm & soothing ” I’ve been there and it’s gonna be ok” voice, she said ” Come on out and borrow the steam cleaner. Clean the carpet and make sure to use bleach.”

Phoenix-carpet-repair-300x300

“BLEACH?!?!” The first thing that popped into my head was a visual of my beautiful cream colored carpet with an equally beautiful bleach spot that I will forever have to cover with that lovely area rug.

But in all of my years, I have learned my mom is usually right. So I forced the ugly picture out of my head and drove to her house. I picked up the steam cleaner and then stopped at the dollar store for some bleach. I started in the far right corner, where the chair sits, so that if my mom was wrong….well…no one would notice. BUT it worked. Thirty minutes later that awful smell as gone, and so was all that ick and creamy yucky-ness. Later that week, my middle son spilled a whole bowl of cereal milk right on that beautiful freshly cleaned carpet. I bleached it again with no problems or color changing. (I also learned the valuable lesson of “NEVER let the kids eat in the family room ever again!”)

So what do you need to know about SmartStrand?

First – It is one of the only carpet products out there that has a ” lifetime stain resistance built into the core of the fiber. Other carpets use temporary, topical protections that wash and wear off over time, making the carpet difficult to clean.”

Second – I love products that make my life easier BUT I also love products that have sustainability and are good for our earth! While most products are made from P.E.T. (a recycled polyester) Smartstrand is made “in part with annually renewable plant-based materials that minimize our usage of limited natural resources.” This also enables mohawk to reduce the energy consumption in the manufacturing of all SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets. It’s good to know you can have the beauty, softness and durability you desire in a carpet without compromising the beautiful earth around us.

Like I said….I know this is biased but when a product is  good  GREAT….. You gotta get the word out about!

Right now The Carpet House is running some pretty fantastic sales on SMARTSTRAND PRODUCTS! So stop by check them out and see for yourself what this is all about!

This mom loves her PERMASTONE flooring!

image

This is my entry. Our crazy kid entrance….full of dirt and kids messes!!

A few months a go, we had permastone vinyl tile installed in our front entry and I am crazy impressed.
First, it looks amazing!
Second, it is so easy to clean and even if it gets a little dirty (which with three kids lets be honest is often) still looks great!
Third, the kids dragged a cracked up plastic bin across it….I was freaking out that there was going to be a giant scratch….and there wasn’t!!
Woohoo!!

Love this floor!!
