#ShopSmall

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.

Floors for Entertaining – Part 3

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving so we figured we would wrap up our 3 part series on great floors for entertaining. In the past couple weeks we have given you two great flooring options: Alterna Tile and Karndean PVC. Armstrong’s luxury vinyl tile, Alterna, is very similar to tile and stone but is more comfortable underfoot, warmer, and easier to clean. Karndean PVC is a product is designed to look like hardwood or tile but is made out of polyvinyl chloride, a durable material that has been used as a floor covering for many years. Today we are taking on a classic floor covering choice that is great for entertaining: hardwood.

When it comes to hardwood floors there are so many great options, but one of our favorites is engineered hand-scraped hardwood. Southern Traditions hardwoods are prepared in the classic traditional American style, from uncompromising source wood selection to the final floor finish. They are painstakingly hand-crafted, one board at a time, by trained hardwood floor artisans, yet still priced affordably enough for those who appreciate fine quality.

We love engineered hand-scraped hardwood floors for entertaining purposes because they look amazing but also hide wear and tear very well. Hand-scraped hardwood floors are hand-crafted individually to give each board unique characteristics. What this means for you is that any dings or scratches you put in the floor will be easily camouflaged. Many people think that cleaning hardwood floors can be problematic, but as long as you sweep regularly and wipe up spills immediately you can have gorgeous floors that last forever.

We think that best part about hardwood floors is that they add so much value to your home. When doing a remodel many people think that changing the floors to anything new will help the resale value of their home, but it this isn’t always the case. Multiple surveys estimate that hardwood flooring can add as much as $7,000-10,000 to a home’s resale value.

Overall hardwood floors are gorgeous, hide wear and tear very well, add so much value to your home, and are PERFECT for entertaining!

Floors for Entertaining – Part 2

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Last week we told you about Karndean PVC, one of favorite floors that are great for entertaining. Karndean PVC is a product is designed to look like hardwood or tile but is made out of polyvinyl chloride, a durable material that has been used as a floor covering for many years. Another great flooring option for entertaining is Armstrong’s luxury vinyl tile, Alterna.

Alterna luxury vinyl tile flooring is the innovative alternative to natural stone and ceramic tile. Like stone and ceramic, it’s incredibly beautiful and durable. But a comfortable surface makes Alterna tiles warmer to the touch, kinder to your feet, and easier to care for in any room of your home.

Like Karndean PVC flooring, Alterna is also resistant to spillages and very easy to clean. Although Alterna looks very similar to tile and stone, it is more comfortable underfoot. Alterna also comes in a wide variety of colors and styles to fit in any home. Another great aspect to Alterna that is useful during the fall and winter months is that it is much warmer to the touch than stone or tile.

Overall, Alterna Luxury Vinyl tile is stylish, easy to clean, warm to the touch, and soft underfoot. We think it’s a great flooring choice to have in your home at any time of the year but especially when entertaining during the holidays.
To check out Alterna and other great products, or to schedule a complimentary measurement and estimate, visit Champion Floors in either Schertz or Universal City.

Floors for Entertaining – Part 1

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

The holidays are quickly approaching and while we know pumpkin pie and presents are on everyone’s minds, maybe it’s time to think about your floors. In this 3 part series we will talk about floors that are the most durable and great for entertaining.

Karndean PVC is a product is designed to look like hardwood or tile but is made out of polyvinyl chloride, a durable material that has been used as a floor covering for many years. Unlike the natural materials they replicate, PVC flooring products don’t crack or split, are warm and quiet underfoot, low maintenance and are easier and quicker to install. We love it because it comes in so many different styles and colors and really fits in any home.

Karndean PVC flooring is also resistant to spillages making them an ideal choice for use in kitchen and bathroom areas. Unlike many floors, Karndean PVC doesn’t have grime and dirt traps making it easier to clean! The enhanced surface treatment of PVC defends against those damages that can easily spoil the look of traditional floorings. Maintaining PVC is polish-free, greatly reducing both chemical and water usage (making it more environment friendly) compared to traditional maintenance routines.

Overall, Karndean PVC flooring is durable, easy to clean, and comes in a style that is sure to fit your decor! We think it’s a great choice to have in your home when entertaining during the holidays.
