How to Prevent Damage on Your Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors, when well-maintained, add a classic beauty to your home that is hard to beat. When we complete your beautiful new hardwood floor installation in Lewisville, you will be getting gorgeous new floors – but the rest is up to you. Here are some tips that you can use to ensure that your new hardwood floors stay in the best condition possible.

Have Pets?
Make sure your pets’ nails are carefully trimmed and be sure to wipe off their paws whenever they come in from the outdoors. Long pet nails can scratch your flooring, and dirt and mud tracked in on their paws can stain it.

Using Your Heat?
When you use your heater, you can inadvertently cause your wood floors to shrink. Using a humidifier in the winter can help reduce shrinkage and keep your floors looking beautiful.

Spilled Something?
When it comes to spills on your hardwood floors, time is of the essence. Wipe up any spills immediately with a clean cloth.

Dropped Wax or Gum?
Wax from dripping candles or chewing gum can potentially damage your hardwood floors, so it is important to take care when removing them. Grab an ice cube and use it to harden the wax or gum, and then gently scrape the substance off with a credit card or other form of plastic scraper. After you remove the object, gently clean the area with a slightly damp cloth.

Choosing the Right Fireplace to Match Your Lifestyle

It is said that a fireplace makes a house a home. It makes for the perfect, cozy spot to relax after a long day or on a particularly cold and snowy night. Even in the summer months when you aren’t using the fireplace as a heat source, it’s still a focal point of the room that adds warmth and beauty to the space. Whether it’s a custom mantle beautifully decorated, or a sleek marble or stone surface, all eyes are drawn to the fireplace when one enters a room.

If you’re building a new home or remodeling your existing one to incorporate a fireplace, not only will it add beauty and comfort to your home, but it’s also a wise investment for your home’s value.  No longer is incorporating a fireplace a luxurious extra that only the wealthy can afford. With so many options and styles to choose from, there is a fireplace to fit your budget.

Above all, the fireplace you choose should be functional, as well as beautiful. However, with so many options available, choosing the right fireplace for your home can be tricky. Here at Design Floors, we have the experience to help you select the right fireplace materials and design and can install it in your home. Here’s the scoop on selecting the perfect model for your home’s needs.

  • Wood, Electricity, or Gas? Your fireplace design and style is completely dependent on the fuel you’ve decided to burn, so tackle the question before you’ve even considered the idea of installing a fireplace.
  • The Look. There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all fireplace, since everyone has different preferences and needs. Do you want a mantle, do you prefer stone, wood, metal for the exterior, etc.?
