Replacing the carpet

REYNOLDSVILLE — The carpet and flooring in The Foundry in Reynoldsville is experiencing some wear and tear.

Judy Dickerson, center director of The Foundry, is seeking to do something about it.

According to Dickerson, the carpet is worn and soiled, and the laminate floor is chipping and coming up in places.

She noted that an effort is underway to raise money for new carpeting and a new floor.

The fundraising includes a lasagna benefit dinner that will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, June 23.

The cost is $7 for adults and $5 for children six years old and under. There will be a carry-out, which is a dollar more.

According to Dickerson, a well-known Italian cook, Judi Anderson of Brookville, will make the meal.

Ways to Protect Tile Flooring: Seal Grout

tile flooring Ways to Protect Tile Flooring: Seal Grout

Are you worried about the stains that affect ceramic tiles, making your floor looking gross? We have some tips for you to revamp your tiled surface immaculate and fresh.

Most of the tiles have a glossy surface that will resist itself from getting stained. Problems arise with the grout that fills the gap. As the grout is made of porous material, it can absorb dirt quickly. There are more chances for the grout to get stained with time. If you are freshly laying out the tiles, go for a special stain-proof grout. Or else, do not forget to apply clear sealers on the grout to prevent staining.

If your grout has not yet grabbed dirt, you can apply sealers. For that, you need to mix a mild bleach solution in a bucket to clean the grout lines. Use old tooth brush to clean the grout lines with bleach solution. After cleaning, rinse off the residue bleach thoroughly with water. Dry it efficiently before applying the clear liquid sealer. You can buy sealers from home improvement stores, along with a built in applicator. Try and select the appropriate applicator roller size that suits your grout lines. Apply the sealer smooth and neat and allow it to dry.

If your grout lines are already stained, you can choose for the grout stain pen for a uniform coloring of stained lines. The grout stain pen has a sealer mixed with a variety of colors that can give a uniform shade to the grout lines.

Tile flooring for bedrooms

 

Wood bedroom tiles for a modern look

Your bedroom is your very own, personal heaven — so you may want to experiment a bit. Don’t go for anything that looks too bright and dashing. It might work well with your current mood but could fall out of favor very soon. Opt for colors and shades that are soothing and relaxing. Natural stone tiles are generally preferred as they tend to bring this elegant and luxurious feel. Prefer a shade that goes along with your theme and use various layout patterns to mix and match.

Tile flooring for classy kitchens

For decades, tiles have been part of many kitchens, but the latest trend has saw us moving from the monotonous ceramic tiles and opt for fancy Linoleum and bamboo floor tiles. They are both highly cost-effective, easy to maintain and clean and on top of these all, they offer a certain sense of eco-friendly feel. Of course, you can still go with the painted ceramic tiles that come in hundreds of designs, but remember that they’re not cozy in winter especially if you live in a colder area.

Designing your home and transforming it into this vivacious and beautiful abode that charms everyone with its unique and timeless look, could be a daunting task. Everyone around you has ideas, but what matters most is the vision and dream that you have for your own place. Achieving this perfect appearance depends on a wide variety of factors and while the themes, colors and décor that you choose are equally important, what most people seem to forget is flooring.

SMALL BATHROOM FLOORING IDEAS USING LARGE-FORMAT TILES

With so many tile designs and colors available, updating your bathroom flooring should be a snap. However, smaller rooms can actually pose larger challenges—especially if you want to make the space appear bigger and brighter. Although the idea of using large-format flooring in small living spaces may seem counterintuitive, bigger tiles with finer grout lines work to make a room appear larger. Here are some popular large-format tile ideas for small bathrooms.

 

Consider a Matte Finish

Large-format flooring is a relatively recent tile trend that can be further modernized with stylish colors and finishes. When you pair the clean lines of larger tiles in a matte finish with a matching grout color, the result is a simple, uniform appearance that causes minimal distraction. Matte finishes work best in spaces where you prefer a more subtle design without the high reflection of a polished tile.

Many contemporary products also feature what’s known as Tru-Edge technology, which allows tiles to be placed closer together and minimizes the size of grout lines. This overall look enhances the flow of the bathroom, and makes the small space feel larger than it actually is.

Go with Oversized Planks

Wood-look tile is another small bathroom flooring choice that’s available in large, wide-plank sizes. Aside from elongating a room, these linear planks, which feature digitally imaged wood-grain patterns, add warmth and texture to any small space. Wood-look tile also provides an attractive alternative for areas where you prefer the look of wood over traditional tile, but still want the practicalities of porcelain.

Like many other large-format options, wide-plank wood-look tiles are also designed to minimize grout lines, further increasing the similarity to actual hardwood and elongating the space. To brighten up your small space, go with alighter shade of wood-look tile.

Choose Large-Format, Stone-Look Tile

Whether your bathroom serves as a space for guests to freshen up or it’s where you relax at the end of a long day, stone-look tile is a great flooring option. And if your space is on the smaller side, large-format stone-look tile can give help add an airy, open feel, while still looking sophisticated and timeless.

Stone-look tile is made of porcelain, but offers the signature look of stone. It’s resistant to water and is available in a variety of sizes. A perfect example is the Linden Point series, which offers a stunning representation of vein-cut marble. This line has a modern look that adds gentle, but rich texture to a small space.

Having a small bathroom doesn’t mean you need to use small tiles. In fact, large-format tile is the perfect design element for making your space feel larger than it really is. When choosing your large-format tile, think outside of the box, and then carefully choose the color and finish of your new bathroom floor. You’ll be amazed at how spacious and contemporary your small bathroom looks.
