Selecting the right Basement Floor

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

If you are remodeling your basement, chances are you are looking for the right flooring to include in the space. There are quite a few options that are available to you when deciding upon a basement floor. But the key to selecting a basement floor is looks and flooring materials that suit the design of the space.

If you plan on converting your basement into a bedroom, a good flooring choice would be ceramics or vinyl tiles. But if you are going for a remodel that is grander, natural flooring like granite can be considered. Or perhaps your basement is being converted into a play room or family room, then hardwood floors could be a better pick. However, you may want to use an area rug to add a more decorative touch to the family room. Carpeting is also good for a family room or playroom.

Keep Your Carpet Looking Great With These Tips

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Maintenance Tips

Carpet is a stylish and comfortable flooring option, and at Ambassador Floor Company in Chesterfield, Missouri, we carry a huge variety of high-quality carpets from the best brands, like Karastan, Mohawk, and many others.

Stains happen, but you don’t have to let them ruin your carpet! Find out how to keep your carpet looking great with these helpful tips from Real Simple.

To clean stains from wine, ketchup, chocolate, coffee, tomato sauce, juice, etc:

  • Use a white cloth and detergent solution to dab at the spot repeatedly, then hold and press the cloth on the stain for a few seconds. After 15 minutes, soak up any excess liquid with a dry white cloth.
  • Next, repeat step one but use white vinegar instead of detergent. Wait another 15 minutes, allowing the white vinegar to remove any detergent left in the carpet fibers, which if left will attract dirt.
  • Rinse the carpet by blotting with a cloth and lukewarm water. Let dry.
  • If the spill is particularly bad, put a 1/2 inch stack of white paper towels on the stain and sit a baking dish on top for 15 minutes.

(Tips are for synthetic fiber rugs. For tips on cleaning natural-fiber rugs, check out the article linked above.)
