Glass Shelves in the Bathroom

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Bathroom, Design Tips

Glass shelves are a versatile storage option for the bathroom.  Glass shelves can be hung throughout the bathroom. In smaller spaces like a bathroom the glass will take up less visual space than a wood or painted shelf.

 

Glass shelves virtually disappear into the wall behind them. If you use a floating shelf design like in this bathroom, the shelf will blend in with whatever is behind it. This allows your beautiful backsplash to be uninterrupted by the shelf. This is important when you have an intricate pattern like a mosaic or border.

 

Tempered glass is always a good idea in a bathroom for a shelf or a shower door. Tempered glass will not shatter into shards, which can be dangerous in a bathroom with its tile or wood floor.  If you have a glass shower surround, glass shelving in the room can unify the design.

 

Glass shelves can be hung above the toilet as well as above the vanity.  You can vary the depth of the shelf depending on its use and placement in the bathroom. Thicker shelves can be used to store extra toilet paper, jars of Qtips and cotton balls, or even extra washcloths and hand towels in neat rolls. Smaller shelves can hold toothbrushes and toothpaste.

 

No matter the material you choose for shelves in the bathroom, make sure you secure them to the wall with the proper screws for your wall type. Going into a stud is always a good idea when hanging a shelf that will hold any weight.

Flooring Decor for the Living Room

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Every room has to have a foundation, both literally and figuratively, and it’s easy to see what it is- the floor! Flooring is such an important part of any interior design plan, and it is the basis upon which you will build the entire room. Take a look at some inspirational flooring ideas from Good Housekeeping to see the difference a beautiful floor can make.

Millwork columns, a stone hearth and beautiful wood floors give this great room a comfy, warm glow.

Gorgeous reddish floors contrast beautifully with contemporary couches in a subtle cream color.

Large cream-colored tiles paired with a textural, earth-toned rug give this living room a sleek and modern feel.

Beige wall-to-wall carpet and a warm area rug make the perfect backdrop for this bright, pumpkin-hued sofa.

Make Your Well-Lived In Spaces Beautiful With Durable Flooring

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

That worn out, white floral patterned linoleum that you have in your mudroom just doesn’t cut it when compared to the rest of your interior. Why do we settle for less style in rooms that require a little more TLC? There’s no reason why your mudroom, entry way, or workroom can’t have beautiful flooring, too.

This tile-like vinyl has the look of old world tile with the durability of vinyl. "Cantina" from the Resilient Line from Mannington, available at Ambassador.

Vinyl flooring has come a long way since the white floral pattern days. It now mimics the look of hardwood, fine tile, bamboo, and other surfaces while holding up to all of the wear and tear you offer it. It’s still easy to clean and manage, with many more options available as far as look and design go.

Ambassador Floor Company has a selection of vinyl flooring (and luxury vinyl soon to come) that can look great in any space. Contact us today to learn more about the new products that are on the market and how they’ll work in your well-lived laundry room, mud room, or entry.

Mohawk Carpet Goes Social With an iPhone App

Mohawk Screen Shot of the iPhone App

Download the applications so that you can...

It seems like there is an app for everything, and carpeting did not want to feel left out. Mohawk is leading the industry with their social media programs and approaches, and, in keeping pace with their progress, they’ve just launched their own iPhone application.

Shopping for flooring materials can be a bit stressful for some, as picking the right color, design, and warranty level can be a little daunting with the large number of choices available at Ambassador Floor Company. To give you a little stress relief and to give your mind a short break during the design process, Mohawk’s app, “Mohawk ME!” will put a mohawk on anyone’s face photo, so you can see what you would look like as a rock star. The application is not only good for stress relief, but can also keep get your creative mind going while you’re designing the perfect living room or bedroom with Mohawk carpet.

The new application will also go towards connecting Mohawk to an entire new category of customers, the “digital generation.” If you’re wondering what a mohawk hairstyle has to do with carpeting, then you have to try out the application. There are 8 mohawks to choose from; after you make your choice, the application matches you with one of Mohawk’s products, basing their selection on your style and taste in a mohawk. (More traditional clients can always use Mohawk’s RooMMate program for suggestions).
