Holiday Home Prep


What are you doing to get your home ready for the holidays? Over the fall and winter months your house is sure to see some foot traffic with guests are coming and going, meal-cooking in the kitchen, football-watching in the living room, and much more. From quick and easy to serious upgrades, make sure you’re ready with some of our favorite inspiring ideas for the holidays!

Your flooring is an important part of your home’s vibe, whether you realize it or not! Think you’re ready for an upgrade? Try out our Room Designer! We know it’s easier to try on a new shirt than it is to try out a new floor. That’s why we have this handy tool to help you visualize! Plus, if you have an iPhone or iPad, you can download our Floor Finder App to see how your flooring picks will look in your home with your own photos…easy as pumpkin pie!
