Mapei Flexcolor CQ is a professional grade, ready-to-use specialty grout that is great for precision commercial and residential installations of porcelain, ceramic and natural stone tiles. It can be used to grout interior or exterior tiles. It uses DropEffect technology, which helps to prevent water-based stains by providing water repellency to the grout surface. Flexcolor uses quartz aggregate to ensure color consistency and is easy to apply and clean. It leaves little to no haze on the tile after the initial wash.
Want to give your walls a modern and more luxurious look? Then consider installing stone. Before you get intimidated by this idea, I’ll let you in on a secret: this is not heavy, back breaking stone. Stone used in ledger panels from Floor & Decor is lightweight enough for two people to easily install these panels. These instructions apply for any stone wall tile.
I'm somewhat of a newish homeowner when it comes to renovations. You see, I've done lots of upgrades from what was originally installed in my home: tile flooring in bathrooms, kitchen backsplash and appliance upgrades, hardwood flooring replacing carpeting, etc. But I've never done a replacement of a replacement. You know what I mean? However, I think it might be time to do just that in my kitchen.
Grout has come a long way from what it once was. It used to be that the difficult part of a redesign would be choosing tile, but now we are faced with a myriad of choices for grout too. Besides the normal grout we've all come to know, there's also a premixed grout that is stain and crack resistant, plus a glittery grout called Reflection. This fancy grout contains glass to give it a shimmery appearance.
Happy Halloween / Pumpkin Season! Right now I’m all about Pumpkin lattes and Pumpkin beer. And I just love seeing all the little ones in their cute costumes, don’t you? Halloween may be a fun time of year for adults and kids, but I wanted to share some scary mistakes I’ve made and heard about others making and there’s not fun in that. Here are some home improvement tips to remember.
We all know the difference between screws and nails. The design of nails is sharp with flat sides, whereas screws have ridged sides. These ridges are what make it easier to adhere to than nails. This might be obvious, but this small difference when installing flooring can make a huge difference in years to come.
My fiance is so handy! He's taught me so much about regular home maintenance as well as the how to's of small to large scale remodels. One of the things he mentions frequently is the importance of caulking. While it may seem like something you would hire a contactor to do, it is rather easy and inexpensive.
Wood Tile Planks have been a fantastic addition to the tile offerings available to floor a home. If you are very sure you want the look of wood, you can now put it in ANY room and not concern yourself with the possibility of any moisture damaging it, like hardwood flooring in a bathroom. When selecting your Wood Tile Planks, make sure to spend some time choosing a complimenting grout color to go along with the wood planks.
