Glass Backsplashes in the Kitchen

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

According to the The National Kitchen & Bath Association, glass has become an increasingly popular material with designers for use in the kitchen. Although kitchen designers commonly use it for countertops, more than half use glass for backsplashes.

Glass is a diverse material that you can have cut into clear or colored tiles to create mosaics, or into square or rectangular sheets and other shapes to match any style of kitchen. Unlike natural stone backsplashes that sometimes show grease stains, or lose color with age or exposure to direct sunlight, glass rarely stains, provides an easy to clean surface and retains its color over time.

At Ambassador Floor Company, we offer a wide range of services. Besides wood, carpet, vinyl, laminate and cork flooring, we also offer a wide range of other eco-friendly flooring solutions for St. Louis, as well as backsplash design and installation services.

Feel free to visit our Ambassador Floor Company St. Louis showroom where we can help you to create a beautiful, long-lasting glass backsplash for any style home.

The Timeless Elegance of Natural Stone Countertops

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Want to add timeless elegance to your kitchen or bath? Using natural stone as your countertop material will do just the trick. Stone is a unique product of nature that is a perfect option for your countertops or surrounds. The five types of stone you can choose from are: limestone, granite, marble, travertine and slate. The differences in each of these stone types is simply the hardness and porosity. To best figure out which style best suits the area you are considering it for, contact an Ambassador Floor design consultant to match up the right style with your needs and lifestyle.

The Endless Possibilities with Tile

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

You are a unique individual, one of a kind, with one of a kind tastes. Your floors should reflect you personal style and contribute to the comfort and uniqueness of your home. Don’t think you have to settle for plain squares with no patterns. Tile is available in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Tile flooring is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update and personalize your living space. The choice of size, shape, and texture of tile is virtually endless. You can choose from vinyl, cork, ceramic, even glass. Be creative, be daring, be bold. The way the tile is laid out can be customized too. Why subscribe to the grid when you can have circles, or a mosaic pattern.

Even if you are a Do-It-Yourself kind of person and you have limited tile flooring experience do not fear. Nowadays exciting patterns, colors and textures even come confined to a square piece for easy installation.

So don’t be shy. Dig in and express you yourself with a new tile floor or even an impressive back splash. Ambassador Floor Company offers the St Louis area flooring that can help make your tile fantasies become reality.

Cork Flooring: Eco-Friendly and Stylish

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

When you want the feeling in your home to be stylish, eco-friendly and warm, your first step is to install cork flooring.

Cork is produced by the natural shedding of the thick outer bark of the cork oak tree, which occurs every nine to 12 years. No trees are cut down and a single tree will produce bark for hundreds of years. Cork harvesting is done only with hand tools.

You can take the eco-friendly theme a step further with cork tiles made from recycled waste, like wine bottle stoppers, to add a dimension of visual interest. Cork tiles are manufactured in patterns and in creative shapes like triangles and polygons, and they can be installed in unique custom patterns.

Cork is naturally impermeable, and flooring is usually sealed with polyurethane to further protect it from damage. Still, it’s advised that you do not wet mop a cork floor, but clean spills immediately with a damp cloth.

Cork flooring comes in a number of natural colors, plus even more water-base stains to simulate hardwoods or other stylish earth tones. It is soft, and a good insulator.

Ambassador Floor Company has cork flooring for all your home’s needs.
