Be Satisfied with Your New Vinyl Plank Flooring with an In-home Consultation from Braid Flooring

vinyl plank flooring optionsPlank vinyl or vinyl plank flooring has become one of the most popular flooring options. As wood flooring grows even more in popularity, so does its replications. Vinyl is becoming a top ‘wood-like’ flooring material. This is attributed to the fact that manufacturers have improved the look, feel and durability of vinyl plank. Finding the right plank vinyl flooring, however, can be complicated. Fortunately, Braid Flooring offers in-home consultations to help you shop for and find the right flooring for your space.

What Does a Braid Flooring Consultation Offer?

When you purchase flooring through Braid Flooring, you’re entitled to a complementary, in-home flooring consultation. The consultation or Creative Meeting is designed to help you find flooring that fits your space, home and style. You can schedule a meeting online or by calling Braid directly. After your meeting has been scheduled, a Design Consultant will come to your home, evaluate your space and show you the options and prices for plank vinyl flooring.

Pricing Options

During your in-home consultation, the consultant will go over all your pricing options and make the best recommendations based on your budget, room design, chosen colour, existing flooring or subfloor, wants and needs. Just keep in mind that Braid Flooring offers the most high-quality plank vinyl, which means your choices will be attractive, sleek, modern and competitively priced.

Choosing the Right Look

Braid Flooring streamlines the process of shopping for plank vinyl flooring. So, your consultant will explain all your colour and dimension options. You can choose whatever colour, width or length you like, but be aware of the average widths and lengths. Wider planks are easier to install and extremely popular right now. However, the average width is 6 inches, and the average length is 48 inches.

The Design Consultant will explain this to you, as well as discuss design options. Most plank vinyl flooring comes embossed, but there are also options that look antique or distressed. Embossed planks are the most common option, but your consultant will discuss which option is best, based on your style.

Shopping for vinyl plank flooring can be stressful and confusing if you don’t know what to look for. However, a free Creative Meeting from Braid Flooring can alleviate your stress and provide the vinyl flooring education you need. Besides that, the consultant can help you find the colour, size and style that fits your space and personality. Give us a call to book your consultation today!

Benefits of Installing Blackout Blinds in Your Bedroom

blackout blindsSleep is a big deal. So big, in fact, that people will do just about anything to ensure they get the best night’s rest possible. One of those things is installing blackout curtains or blinds in the bedrooms of their home. Blackout blinds can provide uninterrupted sleep by blocking out light, especially during the mornings and midday. However, they have many more benefits, as well. Below are four benefits of installing ‘blackouts’ in your bedrooms.

Blackouts Provide Noise Reduction

Noise outside can be just as disturbing, if not more disturbing, than sunlight. However, a good blackout blind can completely block out or reduce the amount of noise entering your bedroom. So, you won’t be awakened by the sounds of cars driving by, lawns being mowed, kids playing outside and more. This means you can sleep in when you want.

They Can Help Lower Your Energy Bills

Energy efficiency is another bonus of blackout window treatments, as energy efficient products can save you a lot of money. Blackout window treatments have thicker material, which can help insulate your room by keeping the heat or air in while blocking out drafts. They can also help cool your room by significantly reducing the amount of sun and heat entering your room. So, your bedroom will be comfortable all year round, which is also a major contributor to a good night’s sleep.

Available in Many Styles and Colours

Blackouts are available in a variety of styles and colours, which means it won’t be difficult to find a blind colour that matches your décor and style. However, the most popular styles are roller, Venetian, Roman and vertical blinds. The blinds you choose will depend on your style and needs, but roller and Roman blinds are the most effective at reducing noise and the amount of light that enters your room. These styles and more can be found at Braid Flooring and Blinds.

Provide Optimal Privacy

These blinds not only block out the light, they also prevent anyone from seeing into your room or even seeing your light from the outside. Not only that, roller blinds and others like them allow you to see outside without allowing anyone to see inside. This makes them ideal for bedrooms, where lots of privacy is needed.

Interior Design Trends and Ideas to Revitalize Your Home this Spring

fresh spring design ideasInterior design can be fickle, but there are some trends that stick and some that fizzle out before they even become hot. One thing is for sure, giving your home a fresh look will never go out of style. And, there’s no better time to update it than the spring.

The spring is about brightness and freshness, so decorating your home with bright, new window treatments and flooring will keep you in line with the feel of the season. Not sure where to start? If  you need some ideas, this is where home design trends come in. Trends in window treatments and flooring might be just what you need to help your home look ‘spring forward’.

Jewel Tone Curtains

Jewel tone fabrics are a popular trend that have spilled over to various aspects of décor, including window treatments. Using bold colour in window treatments is a hot trend that is surprisingly spring-friendly. It’s spring-friendly because jewel tones are basically spring colours with a deep, rich makeover. They’re deep jewel hues of colours, such as emerald, turquoise, amethyst, sapphire and jade – all tones that can bring a pop of colour to any room. These days, jewel tones don’t mean gaudy and foreboding, they mean bright, beautiful and bold – a perfect way to describe the spring.

Natural Wood Bamboo Blinds

Sustainability is a trend that has inspired many other trends and design ideas. One such trend is bamboo window blinds. Bamboo and woven blinds are affordable, sustainable window treatment options that are making waves in the home décor industry. The blinds are made of natural bamboo, which is durable, aesthetically pleasing and functional. They’re perfect for filtering light and provide a warmth and uniqueness that many window treatments just can’t provide.

Neutral Grey Flooring

The colour grey is trending across the design board, because it’s neutral and hides dirt well. These are both pluses for flooring designs. Grey flooring of all types is taking the world by storm, and spring is the perfect time for you to get in on the action.

The mild temperatures of spring provide optimal working conditions for your contractor. All you have to do is pay a visit to your local flooring and window fashions experts, Braid. Then, let one of our design consultants explain how versatile the colour grey is, how well it goes with white baseboards, how many flooring options are available and how bright it will make your home this spring.

Wood-Like Flooring

Hardwood flooring will always be popular, but it will always be more expensive, as well. Therefore, wood-like flooring options are on the rise. With the use of laminate, tile or vinyl, you can get the look and feel of hardwood without the price or maintenance. Additionally, this flooring trend can be combined with the trend of using blonde-coloured flooring to create a cool, modern and light design that will simultaneously update your home and show that you’re ready for the spring.

Ready to add a little ‘spring’ style to your home? Give us a call to schedule a consultation in which you will learn all about the design ideas that will perfectly suit your style needs.

Spring Flooring Trends for 2017

spring flooring trendsFlooring is a major element of a home’s design. Good flooring can make a room look better, feel better and even function better. Every so often, notable flooring trends emerge and the past few years has brought about a lot of progression in flooring. The year 2017 is set to see its fair share of spring flooring trends. Here are some highlights:

The Rise of the Wide Plank

As the popularity of smaller homes continues to grow, so does the popularity of bigger or more exaggerated design elements. Exaggerated flooring, such as wide plank wood and laminate, can make a small space look larger and more spacious. However, wide plank flooring is also offered in tile and vinyl, as well. It’s a great way to update your home because it looks expensive, elegant and modern.

Big Moves for Format Tile

Using large format tile to make a room look larger is another major flooring trend. Not only do they make a room look larger, they also provide an attractive, clean, modern look and reduce the amount of grout lines that are visible. It’s, of course, the perfect fit for kitchens and bathrooms. You can have the traditional ceramic or vinyl tile installed or go with a nice modern, sleek porcelain option.

Flooring That Looks Like Wood, But Isn’t

Flooring that mimics the look and feel of wood is a hot commodity today. In fact, this is quite possibly the greatest flooring trend of 2017, and most likely because wood-like flooring has undergone some major advancements and changes. Wood-like flooring once sounded hollow and looked unattractive and unfinished, but now, it’s solid, durable and chic. Vinyl, tile and laminate have all been improved to look and feel more like wood, and are now worthy alternatives. Additionally, they’re easier to maintain and less expensive, which means you can have the look and feel of hardwood flooring without the maintenance or price.

Okay With Parquet

Parquet is an acquired taste, so it struggles to make it to the top of any list of desired flooring options. Plus, some see it as outdated and or even tacky. However, parquet really only has a bad rep because it’s often associated with a few particular outdated patterns, such as the Chevron.

Truthfully, parquet just means any geometric pattern. This means it doesn’t have to look a certain way. So, you could design your parquet flooring in any geometric pattern you like or stick with the most popular trend of herringbone parquet flooring. The best part is, it can now be designed in wood, tile, vinyl, laminate and more.

If you want to revitalize your home or office with new flooring, give us a call and let’s schedule a consultation where our design experts can help you find the spring flooring trends that are right for you.
