Timeless Decor Essentials You Need In Your Home

Tuesday, September 17th, 2019

It’s September which means summer is almost over, and fall is approaching. With the seasons changing, your home is due for a change, too! This week, we’re going to show you the top decor items you should be putting in your home to create long-lasting versatility and beauty. 

Bring in some art

A beautiful piece of artwork can completely change a room! You can find an art piece anywhere, whether it be from a thrift store, online, or somewhere you traveled. It can be a bright, colorful painting to bring liveliness to a room, a photograph that holds sentimental value, or a sculpture piece that stands out in a room. 

Bring the outdoors, indoors

Having plants throughout your home can be a great way to decorate your home. You can customize based on the type of plants you want, whether it be big, long, short, colorful, whatever works for you. Another way to bring the outdoors indoors is by having hardwood floors. Hardwood flooring will never go out of style, and can also be customized based on your personality and needs. With so many different wood styles and stains to choose from, there’s no doubt you’ll find the perfect hardwood floors for your home. 

A couch that stands out

Your couch is one of the most important pieces in your home. This is a piece of furniture that you should not only feel comfortable sitting and lounging in, but also seeing everyday. A solid colored couch made from cotton or linen will ensure it’s timeless and will always look and feel good.

Invest in some good storage

Storage space is essential in any home, especially those with pets or children. You can utilize a chest of drawers, which will look good in any room. It can stand by itself in a room or be near a bed or couch. You can dress it up by adding a mirror on the wall above it or adding decor pieces like picture frames and candles on top of it.

Monday, June 27th, 2016

The look of dark hardwood floors has always been a favorite for homeowners. The darker look allows a more sophisticated look, such as Brazilian Cherry, dark-stained Oak, or walnut. There are, however, things to keep in mind when making the choice to go dark.

How to Maintain Hardwood Floors | Wood Floor Maintenance & Repair in Baltimore

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Hardwood floors: whether or not their name makes it sound as such, they’re not all that hard to maintain. Here are a few tips to help your hardwood age as beautifully as a fine wine.

Cleaning Hardwood

With people and pets constantly trekking from the outside in, abrasive particles are bound to collect on your wood floors. Dirt, sand, gravel, and the like can deaden that oh-so-shiny finish on wood floors while also potentially causing scratches. Be sure to mop and vacuum on the regular to rid of these debris. Should food or water spill on your floor, address the situation immediately, and use a cleaner made for hardwood to avoid staining and to clean without causing damage.

Preventing Scratches

Putting glides and pads on the feet of your furniture is a little task that goes a long way in preventing scratches on hardwoods as you move chairs in and out from under the dining room table, rearrange furniture, and the like. For a quick fix when changing the placement of your furniture, slip a few socks under the piece to protect your floor during the move. Rugs and runners are magic carpets that will also help prevent your hardwoods from getting scratched.

Even if you take all the precaution you possible can, your hardwood will wear over time and you’ll probably want to take steps to make repairs to any cosmetic damages to restore your hardwoods to look as good as the day they were installed.
