Entering Home Entries

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Nothing is more disheartening than a beautiful home with a shabby, worn entry leading up to the front door. Many homeowners are unaware that with only minimal effort, a battered entryway can be transformed into a grand one. If you have a concrete walk or driveway leading to your home, choosing to add a brick border can sometimes be an amazing choice. To accentuate the driveway or walkway, stain or paint your porch a light color and paint your front door the same color as the walk–ask me to send you some pictures of work we’ve done on homes on Bainbridge Island.

Laminated flooring

Monday, March 29th, 2010

“Laminate flooring—for better or for worse?” You may ask yourself. In my opinion, laminate flooring can be a very good idea, depending on your situation. It looks authentic, but much more workable than real wood or carpeting.

For people with pets (particularly dogs) it is a must. Dogs can easily scratch hardwood flooring with their toenails. Dog booties may work for some go-with-the-flow kinds of canines, but as everyone knows, not all dogs like the confined feeling of little squishy shoes on their paws. Therefore, laminate is the best decision.
Hardwood flooring is beautiful—but quite expensive. It is easily scraped, ruined, or stained. For families with small children, hardwood flooring can be damaged.
