There is nothing that can make an outdoor space feel as cozy as a nice rug. Regardless of how nice your outdoor space is, adding a rug just has a way of defining the space and making it inviting. Since my outdoor rug has seen its better days, I had finally come to the decision the it was time to replace it. During this shopping experience, I stumbled across a few amazing brands of easy to clean indoor outdoor rugs, and there is nothing that I like better than finding quality rugs at reasonable prices!
Recently, I was searching through Pinterest looking for some good pins to add to my flooring board. (BTW – I highly recommend following me). 😉 What I noticed were so very many articles on cleaning wood floors that were offering some very wrong advice. Now, I don’t claim to be a professional flooring installer, but I know my way around wood, and I have done my fair share of flooring installs and repairs. So, I just wanted to offer my two cents on how to care for wood floors, and what you should not do.
Floating laminate flooring can be the solution to many flooring issues. It is versatile, easy to install, looks good, and can go in many areas where real wood shouldn’t. Therefore, I wanted to go over the basics and show you how to install floating laminate flooring. (Photography Credit – special thanks to Andy Dean for some of these images.)

If you have been paying attention to any of the home remodeling TV shows, then I am sure that you have seen some form of cement tile being installed. These are sometimes referred to as pattern tiles, and are reminiscent of either a Mediterranean or New Orleans style (depending on the design). However, these tiles are making a comeback in a big way. So, if you enjoying keeping up with current trends, then you should really check these out.

There is nothing more satisfying than finishing a beautiful tile layout. However, there is also nothing more annoying than having a great job ruined by the stains that are almost sure to come. Even diligently applying sealer on a regular schedule can not stand up to some accidents that may happen. To solve this problem, I use epoxy grout – specifically, SpectraLock’s epoxy grout.
