Flooring options for any room of your home is an important decision but the kitchen may be the most critical. Subject to everyday use, a lot of foot traffic from entertaining and family gatherings, selecting the best possible material for this area can be a difficult decision. Today, often homeowners are electing to create open floor plans and having a suitable surface that can easily transition from one area of the home into the specifics needed in a kitchen can seem to be a difficult task. Fortunately, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) options allow for the best of many different flooring surfaces to be combined into one specific look that can check all of the boxes for a homeowner.

While hardwood floors are extremely durable, they can also be expensive and hardwood kitchen flooring comes with its own special set of circumstances. Subject to water damage and especially spills in the kitchen, putting such an investment at immediate risk may be something that homeowners need to consider when choosing a flooring option. Fortunately, LVT floors can withstand the heavy amounts of traffic and potential for water and spill damage, in addition to other significant benefits.

Being subject to spills associated with routine work in the kitchen, having a surface that can clean up easy is important. With LVT flooring, individuals can utilize all of their cleaning mechanisms to ensure the surface stays free and clear. Vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping are all suitable for LVT floors, unlike some of the other options.

LVT flooring can be made to look like traditional tile sections or even replicate the hardwood flooring patterns throughout other portions of the home. Depending on your current situation, there is guaranteed to be a LVT flooring option that fits for you.

Choosing Between Denver Countertop Color Options


July 10, 2019

Whether you are faced with making decisions revolving around a new construction project or in the middle of a kitchen remodel, choosing your countertop color is an extremely important step in the process. Almost as difficult as the decision for what type of surface will be used, knowing and understanding the color options available and veining potential for the specific material selected is also an important feature.

Kitchen countertop color styles range from wooden tones to black or even white. Advances in modern technology have allowed for homeowners to enjoy almost the full color range when deciding what to use despite what material they ultimately select. Once a choice has been made as to whether granite, marble, quartz, wood, or another option will be selected then the color immediately becomes primary.

Matching paint colors, the floor, and backsplash options are all important factors to take into consideration when choosing a countertop color. Depending on your style and thoughts, there are essentially three main options to choose from no matter what color you pick.

Bold
Homeowners wanting to make a bold statement with their color choice may choose something bright in an otherwise dark room or something out of the ordinary. Both of these features involve lighter colors or a unique option. 

Mesh
Another characteristic is to mesh your countertop color with the floor, backsplash, or cabinet hues. Opposite those homeowners who wish to make a bold statement - warm, countertop complements are typically important as individuals choose their kitchen countertop color. For those on the opposite end of the spectrum, getting something with a little more flow, that still has character can be important.

Options
There are also options for those families or individuals who cannot decide on one particular color. Depending on the style of your kitchen, in particular those that have either an island or a bar countertop surface area - mixing and matching countertop materials and colors is also a quality option.

These particular cases open up a variety of different options for homeowners and also allow those who may be indecisive the ability to incorporate more than one color or material.

Denver Countertop Prefabricated Slab Options


July 3, 2019

Whether you are making decisions regarding a brand new construction project or involved in a residential remodel, the topic of countertops is going to be broached at some point in the process. There are multiple surface options to choose from, ranging from natural stone slabs to laminate and even prefabricated solutions. Depending on the location and surrounding components of the room, getting a proper fit will be extremely important to the homeowner.

Unlike the kitchen, where large natural stone slabs can be easily administered due to the nature of countertop surface space, including potential islands - there are many other areas of the home where utilizing a prefabricated slab makes perfect sense. There is no question that the countertop surfaces increase home value but ensuring that you have a solid fit for your particular home is important. Making an over-the-top adjustment that ultimately doesn’t jive with the remainder of the house can cause issues, so getting a good fit is important.

Bathrooms


Almost always a smaller room than the kitchen, utilizing prefabricated natural stone solutions inside a bathroom is a viable option. These surfaces traditionally aren’t as elaborate as their kitchen counterparts, although the transition feel and linking common characteristics throughout a home is important.

Bar Tops

Another area that utilizes a smaller countertop surface space is the bar top. These areas can be constructed with a prefabricated slab to either match or appear in contrast to the remainder of the kitchen countertop surfaces.

Laundry Rooms

Another area of the home where creating ample surface work space is important, often homeowners can save a little by choosing a prefabricated stone piece instead of a full slab for the restricted work space.

Vanities

Bathroom vanities are similar to bars or kitchen islands where a smaller surface space is needed but one that homeowners still want to look its best. Choosing a prefabricated option can not only help to extend the flow from other design styles associated with the vanity but also allows for a more cost friendly option.

Denver Limestone Upgrades for Your Outdoor Space


June 26, 2019

Summer is here and that means everyone is emerging from the cold and bitter winter to engage in outdoor activities. Not only does this include enjoying parks and many other recreational activities but also the entertainment spaces available in our own backyards. If you’re interested in upgrading these spaces or building something new to enjoy this summer then consider using limestone to make an impact.

Not only can limestone be used as a patio flooring surface but the benefits and flexibility of the stone allow for it to be implemented in a number of other areas as well. Instead of just providing an area for outdoor gathering and eating, up the ante this summer and add something that can be used all year long - in addition to changing the floor. 

Fire Pit

A limestone fire pit can provide year round use, a fun gathering spot, and even some cooking benefits. These also help to knock off any chill in the air throughout the fall and winter months, plus an enjoyable evening to a summer night. The fire typically keeps bugs away and families can make more use of their space and home when it can be used at any time of the year. 

Seating

If you’re going to add a fire pit then you’ll need seating as well. Limestone can be used for a variety of construction projects, including being shaped into benches or individual seats. There are many advantages to limestone, including the ability to create an elegant look and feel to your area through its implementation.

Outdoor Kitchen

Another useful tool that can enhance your outdoor space and be provided through the use of limestone is building an outdoor kitchen. By blocking in a grill or outdoor cooktop and providing a solid countertop space to boot, the opportunities for engaging and using this newly created space are seemingly endless. If the space is covered, this new addition can be used during most weather scenarios, including for a majority of the year. Get out of the house and begin to explore the areas around your own home or entertain friends and neighbors by implementing the use of limestone and making something new today.

If you’re ready to consider any of the above suggestions or have other outdoor enhancement project ideas for natural stone surfaces then we’re ready to help.

Denver Natural Stone Porcelain Tile Flooring Benefits


June 19, 2019

Whether you’re involved in the construction process or remodeling a kitchen, bathroom, or any other area of the home, finding the perfect flooring is important. One of the main attractions in every room of the house, flooring surfaces need to serve a variety of purposes in order to ensure homeowners are receiving the best benefits from the material selected. Depending on the room in question, these characteristics can vary significantly.

For example, some prefer to have carpet in their bedrooms but another material in other areas of the home. Picking the perfect floor can take time and all factors should be considered but there are options now available for everyone. Porcelain has been around for many years and more recently has built up momentum for use due to a variety of different characteristics. The following shows exactly why this surface may be your best bet.

Design Options

Porcelain floors come in a variety of different colors and can even be manufactured to appear as another material. By imitating these other flooring surface types, homeowners get the long list of benefits from porcelain with the look they desire.

Stain Resistant

A rising option for both kitchens and bathrooms, porcelain floors are incredibly stain resistant. Able to withstand any long-term effects of spills and messes, these floors can benefit homeowners when installed in these high traffic areas or any other area of the home.

Wear Resistant

Not only are porcelain floors able to maintain their color and shine after a spill but they maintain this look well into the future. An extremely durable material, porcelain tiles won’t show use in the same way as hardwoods or carpet will. 

Water Resistant

Similar to how porcelain floors can withstand spills, these surfaces are also extremely water resistant. One of the best possible options for areas that may be subject to an abundance of water use - the bathroom and kitchen, these flooring types offer many benefits over other options. Adding a gloss to porcelain tile can provide an extra layer of protection against any ill side effects associated with water exposure.

If you’re at a place where flooring options in your own home or as part of a new construction need to be determined, then don’t forget that porcelain can be a literal solid choice.
