It’s our pleasure to advise you of the benefits and features of our products. Why? We want you to be happy with your purchase for years to come.

 

Color Trends

Say hello to warmer colors, and goodbye to minimalism. It appears that several interior designers and industry insiders are saying you should be ready to introduce color into your decor. 

Janice Simonsen of IKEA Designs says that “fruit colors such as lime yellow, kiwi and tangerine will be very popular, especially when used in the kitchen. But blue will continue to be the number one color choice for homeowners. Blue will be combined with camel and tan, pale green and yellow.”

Hardwood Flooring 

Prevent scratches and dulling caused by dust with the use of mats or rugs at all entrances. Vacuum with a suction action or dust with a mop once a week. Beware, the use of dusting products can dull the finish. Polyurethane or similar surfaces require a damp mop for routine clean-ups. Never clean wax finished floors with water or even a damp mop. Follow the manufacturers' directions for bigger clean-ups, otherwise, use a solution of ¼ cup white vinegar in 4 cups of warm water. When using a damp rag or sponge, wipe the floor dry as you go. Oil, soaps or ammonia products can cause damage and dull surface finishes.

Tile/Stone 

Ordinary sweeping and an occasional wiping with a damp sponge mop, using a small amount of soap-less detergent in warm water will clean your ceramic tile beautifully. Soaps are not recommended as they leave a film which dulls the surface and promotes mildew. Steel wool pads, acid cleaner and vinegar are also not recommended due to the damage caused to grout.
