Tile Information In Brunswick, ME

Durfee’s Flooring Center Offers a Diverse Choice of Tile for Flooring, Walls and Custom Shower Surrounds at Affordable Prices 

 

Tile is the best choice for use in kitchens, bathrooms, and other moisture-prone areas and we offer a complete selection plus professional installation. If your home remodeling project includes new bathroom flooring and shower surrounds, you should seriously consider tile for these areas. The tile might as well have been created specifically for areas where moisture is prevalent because there is no other product that offers such perfect benefits. From the design perspective, tile offers a wide variety of options to choose from. You can obtain a complete range of tile from the classic tile you’ll find in many bathrooms and kitchens, to high-end luxury tiles. This diverse set of choices makes tile an affordable option for nearly every remodeling budget. Consider these benefits:

  • It’s Waterproof – Glazed ceramic or porcelain tiles are waterproof, which makes them number one choice for household areas that are regularly exposed to water, such as the kitchen and bathrooms. Using tile for a shower surround, wall covering, or flooring in these rooms can prevent water damage to underlying structures.
  • It’s Hypoallergenic – Since many of today’s tile materials are from natural sources such as stone or ceramic materials, they don’t give off any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which frequently kick off allergies in some individual. Tile surfaces that are also non-porous and easily wiped down, such as glazed ceramic tiles and glass tiles, are also far less likely to attract and harbor dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens. Moreover, they are also resistant to the growth of mildew and bacteria.
  • It’s Durable – Floors and walls that are covered by synthetic materials are very easily damaged. A chair being dragged over a tile floor, or an overzealous youngster armed with crayons can create artwork on the surface that won’t easily be removed, if ever. It takes much more effort to create permanent damage in tile. While tiles can be chipped or cracked by dropping a heavy object upon them, damaged tiles are easily removed and replaced without affecting the undamaged tiles.
  • It’s Easy to Clean – One of the major problems with synthetic materials is that you have to be cautious about the chemicals that you clean them with. Tile is much easier to clean since you can scrub harder with any chemical cleaner. It is also very difficult for dirt or stains to gain any real foothold on the surface of the tiles.

Installing Tile is Usually Not a DIY Project

Professional tile installers have years of experience in preparing and setting tiles, which means they can quickly handle and solve problems that may occur. Tile installation also necessitates having special equipment that can cut tile smoothly to fit into odd-sized spaces. Because of the experience and necessary, contracting a tile installation expert at Durfee’s Flooring Center is recommended.

Area Rug Information In Brunswick, ME

Durfee’s Flooring Center Offers a Complete Selection of Beautiful Karastan Area Rugs in Diverse Styles, Sizes and Colors 

Many homeowners have discovered that the proper placement of one or more colorful area rugs in their rooms and be a great way to enhance their interior décor without requiring the installation of all-new flooring. The best way to understand why this works so well is to dig a bit deeper and explore the world of colors, patterns, and textures found within today’s new area rugs. These rugs can create a ‘focal point’ of color within your rooms overall décor.

Make color work for you when using an area rug

From flooring to ceiling, color is what keeps the room together. Flooring makes up almost 30% of the color in a room. If you plan to use an area rug to be the dominant element within the room, select a patterned rug that has distinct color combinations. Use shades of color from the area rug to select paints and accessories; then extend those colors into adjacent rooms by using coordinating Karastan rugs. Durfee’s Flooring Center provides a very complete selection of Karastan area rugs for homeowners in Brunswick, Bath, Freeport, Topsham, Harpswell, and other nearby Maine communities.

The importance of a pattern in an area rug

Choosing the right area rug is a very personal choice when it comes to the pattern. Whether it is traditional or contemporary, the most important thing is how the pattern will make you feel.

Patterned rugs lend an aura of richness and intimacy to larger rooms. They also provide immediate personality and character, which will permit you to create a certain style. Mixing patterns can be a bit tricky. Keep in mind that if the patterns are related by texture, form, or color, the mix is more likely to be effective.

When used together effectively, complementary patterns are great at defining areas. Use them to define conversation areas in larger rooms, or to separate a dining area from the rest of the space. Don’t be reluctant to use them underneath tables where spills are apt to occur. Patterned rugs are far better than solid rugs when it comes to hiding spots and stains.

Karastan area rugs

If you are using your area rug under a dining room table or you have pets and children who may have accidents, you’ll want to be certain that your new area rug will be easy to clean. The best natural product for dealing with accidents is wool. Our Karastan selections of wool rugs are superior because they have built-in stain-resistant features. Their scaly structure in the wool fibers keeps dirt well up on the pile, thus making vacuuming away dirt more efficient.

Placing an area rug over hard-surfaced flooring can help with noise echoing in a room. Using plush materials like Karastan area rugs, with fabric window treatments and upholstery will help absorb sounds so that your home will be more serene and relaxing.

If you would like additional information about or an extensive collection of Karastan area rugs, to see samples personally, phone us, e-mail us, or stop in at our showroom in Brunswick, ME to discuss your interest in area rugs with one of our flooring consultants.
