Master Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

In continued celebration of National Kitchen and Bath Month, let’s discuss ideas for a master bathroom remodeling project. When you are having your master bedroom redesigned, you want to incorporate luxury into the design in order to create a customized retreat.

First you want to figure out the style of your bathroom. Visiting kitchen and bath showrooms can help you decide on a style that matches your tastes and current bedroom interiors. Then you want to think about the materials. Since it is the master bathroom, go luxurious with things like granite countertops and stone flooring. When it comes to bathroom flooring, remember to go with options that are moisture resistant. Water damage can really reek havoc on the wrong type of flooring.

For your plumbing, custom showers are very popular these days. But if you prefer the big bubble jet tub, by all means – indulge!

If you need flooring for your bathroom remodeling project, make sure you stop by Ambassador Floor Company in Chesterfield, MO.

5 Tips for a Well-Designed Room

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, slider

Of course you want your St. Louis home to be beautiful, comfortable and welcoming, but do you know how to achieve those results? For those who do not have a design education it can seem like an overwhelming task to decorate a room, but fortunately there are some great tips that can help you succeed. Take a look at some helpful ideas from House Beautiful to help you design your ideal home.

  • Create a seating area that encourages conversation. There’s nothing more awkward than an oddly-arranged seating area.
  • Include a coffee table that is both fun and functional. The coffee table is a great place to show off some interesting items or books, but remember to leave enough room that you and your guests can actually sit your beverage down!
  • It’s so important to make sure the flooring and wall color work together. A lighter colored tile, natural stone or luxury vinyl floor can work extremely well with a dark wall color, because the floor will reflect the light from above.

If you are ready to enhance your Chesterfield Valley home with beautiful new floors, come visit our showroom! Ambassador Floor Company carries a huge variety of carpet, laminate, luxury vinyl, natural stone, tile, vinyl, and wood, so you’re sure to find the flooring that’s just right for your home.

Choosing the Right Color and Design for your Floor

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Once you have selected a flooring material that you would prefer in your room, it is time to decide upon the color and design of the floor. You want to begin making your decisions based on coordinating or contrasting with the existing color and wood scheme in the room, or if it is a newly renovated room, the new schemes when redecorating. It is important to note that the wood finish you select should complement the colors and wood schemes in the room but not dominate the room.

Another important thing to remember is that the style of the flooring and its planking should also be consistent when compared with your decorating style for the room. Whether it is contemporary, country, formal or casual, you want to make sure the entire room comes together from ceiling to floor.

At Ambassador Floor Company, we carry a huge range of carpet, ceramic, hardwood, vinyl, marble, and granite flooring products to suit any customer’s personal style and functional needs.

Choose the Right Bathroom Floor

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, Maintenance Tips

Want to give your home a quick makeover, but don’t have the time for a large-scale remodel at the moment? If so, transforming your bathrooms is a great option. These spaces are usually fairly small compared to other rooms, but with new flooring, a sophisticated paint color, and some new hardware, even a small bathroom can pack a big visual punch for not a lot of money.

However, bathrooms do have a few practical concerns that must be addressed when it comes to flooring. Read on for some tips from HGTV to help you choose the bathroom flooring that’s right for you.

  • Ceramic tile– Classic, durable, hygienic, and versatile. Tile is easy to clean and comes in a myriad of sizes, colors, and patterns to complement any decor style.
  • Laminate– Also quite durable and easy to clean, but you can achieve a wood floor look.
  • Natural stone– Easy to maintain while also durable, yet unpolished varieties will need to be sealed to prevent stains.
  • Carpet– This comes as a surprise to most people, but if you choose the right kind of carpet, it can be a great flooring material for a bathroom, and obviously much warmer on your feet than tile or stone. To work in a bathroom, the carpet must be water-, mildew-, and stain-resistant, and have a backing material that won’t let water seep in to the pad.

At Ambassador Floor Company, we carry a huge range of carpet, ceramic, hardwood, vinyl, marble, and granite flooring products to suit any customer’s personal style and functional needs. Visit our showroom in Chesterfield today and let us help you find the perfect flooring for your St. Louis area home!

Pet Friendly Flooring Options

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

For the animal lovers of the world, a little extra effort, and maybe even some wear and tear on the house, is a small price to pay for the unconditional love and loyalty pets bring to our lives. With that said, you still want your home to look nice, no matter how much you love Fido.

Dogs and cats can wreak havoc on both hard and soft flooring options, from the dirt and stains they may leave behind on carpet to the almost inevitable scratches their claws leave on wood floors. Fortunately, there are many new options in durable, attractive flooring, so you can get the look you want for your St. Louis home and enjoy the company of furry family members.

Take a look at this list of pet-friendly flooring options from the Do It Yourself website, and contact Ambassador Floor Company to help beautify and pet-proof the floors in your home!

  • Carpet– Choose non-loop polypropylene and polyester fibers. This kind of carpeting is easier to clean, as long as you take care of it promptly. Looped carpet fibers can get caught on a pet’s claws, pulling out the yarn and causing permanent damage.
  • Laminate– This kind of engineered wood flooring is extremely tough and durable if you invest in a high-quality option. However, Scratches cannot be sanded out like regular wood floors, so if the floor is damaged, it will have to be replaced.
  • Hardwood– The upside of this flooring material is that it can be refinished, and you can even have a particular spot done without having the whole house re-finished. If you do opt for hardwood, make sure the floor is finished with 3 coats of oil-based urethane finish in a satin sheen, for maximum protection.
  • Bamboo– A fabulous choice for pet-owners, bamboo is eco-friendly, extremely durable, naturally stain-resistant, and affordable.
  • Luxury vinyl– This type of product is moisture-resistant, making for easy mess cleanup, easy to care for, hard to scratch, and has the added bonus of quieting the click-clack of your pet’s nails.
