Being that I have hardwood flooring throughout my entire house, I tend to stock up on rugs. I have rugs of all types and colors. I change them out the way most people change their throw pillows. But, having so many rugs can be costly when it comes time to get them cleaned. Luckily, I have a very effective DIY professional rug cleaning method!
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.
