Bring the Look of a Checker Board or a Serene Outdoor Patio Into Your Home with Tile

Do you know the difference between natural stone tile and ceramic tile?”

Tile Flooring Guide
Versatile. Beautiful. Distinctive. With its wide range of materials and colors, tile offers endless possibilities for creating your vision for a room. In addition to its variety of decorative design options, tile is very durable and easy to maintain.

There are a number of common tile materials, which each offer their own unique characteristics. Natural stone, such as granite or limestone, are naturally formed so no two pieces are exactly alike. This helps create floors that are elegant and distinctive floors. In either glazed or unglazed styles, ceramic tiles are a popular choice for attractive, long-lasting floors. Glass, mosaic and metal tiles provide opportunities for fresh creative expression in flooring design.

While it requires careful installation, tile is a preferred choice for high traffic areas, like entranceways, and places where moisture is an issue, such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Tile Flooring: Guide for Home Decorating
Durable, easy to maintain, and water resistant, tile flooring offers a number of advantages for use in practically any room in your home and even outside. While the choices are nearly limitless, there are a few key things to consider. Consider this tile flooring guide when choosing ceramic tile for your home.

Simply Amazing's Grand Reopening A Sweet Event

Simply-Amazing-Grand-Reopening-1Check out photos from the event here!

The gray, rainy skies this Saturday, November 13, couldn’t dampen the cheer of hundreds of kids at the Simply Amazing Market’s Grand Reopening. A colorful, giant Candy Land game board covered the floor in the warehouse, with real life characters from the game at stations around the room. Face painting and coloring stations provided kids entertainment while they waited for their turn.

Kids walked through Gum Drop Lane, the Peppermint Forest, and past the Taffy Waterfall. Students from the Alpha Lambda Delta sorority at VU, the freshmen service sorority, dressed as gingerbread men, Princess Lolly, and other characters from the game. As they made their way around the board, there were special spots they could land on and win prizes such as fudge. At the end, they were met by the Queen in front of her “castle”, a bounce house, and given tickets to pick out a prize.Simply-Amazing-Grand-Reopening-2
