Painting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make an impact in a room. Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional painter, painting can turn a drab room into something special. Add colorful pillows, a new area rug or a comfortable throw. Voila! You are on your way to creating a restful retreat, a fantastic entertaining space or something magical you didn’t know you wanted until now.

What are some of the color trends expected for 2018? Check them out below and let us know your thoughts.

Do you plan to use any of these colors next year when decorating? Which ones do you like?

Unique Flooring Options

 You can create a unique look with simple upgrades such as borders, medallions, distressing, painting floors, mixed media and staining.

  • Borders create a frame effect. They can incorporate multiple wood species, stone, marble, brass, stainless steel, nickel and other metals.
  • Medallions are installed in the main field of the floor. They can incorporate multiple wood species, stone, metal and leather. Medallions also can be routed into existing floors.
  • Distressing offers an antiqued appearance. Hand-scraping is the most-common distressing technique used to achieve a worn look.
  • Painted floors transform an ordinary wood floor into something unique. Features such as borders or other design elements can be added and sanded off later.
  • Mixed media mixes wood with other materials. A marble and wood foyer makes a dramatic entryway, while brushed nickel accents in your kitchen wood floor could showcase your appliances.
  • Staining can give your existing wood floors an entirely new look very affordably. Light, medium and dark stains transform your floors without replacement

Shaw Floors Announces Color of the Year

Every year since 2014 Shaw Floors has named a Color of the Year for the upcoming year. (Royal English Navy, Lady in Grey, White Hot, Lush and now Gold Rush) Shaw says these colors work well alone and can deliver even more pizazz when they work together.

Gold Rush brings energy to a room, creating a range of emotions from warmth to excitement, from serious to playful. What do you think about the color? Will you use it in your home?
