Covering Ground Blog

Home design is never static, and each year brings new innovations and trends to help homeowners find exactly the look and feel they desire in their homes. The style options for floor coverings fill home improvement stores, masonry yards, and design centers with myriad choices that both delight and confuse shoppers.

With New Year’s right around the corner, have you made your resolutions yet? Concrete Craft® would like to help you make a New Year’s Resolution that is unbreakable--and literally set in concrete. That way you’ll rise above the 80% of people who don’t stick to their resolutions for various reasons.

The holiday season has arrived, and thoughts turn to gift giving. Some people on your list are easy to buy for, while others keep you searching the malls and online stores for that “perfect something” that will delight a favorite person. With celebrations for Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice and New Year’s, there are lots of opportunities to say “you’re special” or “I love you” with a well-chosen gift.

With the holidays coming, there’s certainly a lot to worry about. The endless shopping, cooking and baking, decorating, cleaning, parties, overnight guests, kids home on school break, and visits from invited friends and relatives who bring their uninvited pets. With all that going on, there are bound to be problems!

Halloween is right around the corner and this means your yard will be invaded by excited little monsters, princesses, pirates, super heroes and the entire cast of Star Wars. Are your walkways and entryway ready to safely engage all these visitors of the galaxies?

If you’re looking ahead to fall entertaining, it’s time to get your outdoor spaces ready for enjoying crisp, cool evenings in complete comfort. An easy-care decorative concrete patio from Concrete Craft® will make you the “hostess with the mostess,” and you’ll spend less time getting ready and more time having fun. A concrete overlay can resurface even a well-worn patio, covering up years of use and weather abuse, and have you sitting pretty for your first fall get-together with a stainedstampedor hand-carvedand custom-colored decorative concrete patio. Our craftsmen can match existing architecture or hardscapes, as in the image above, or you can make a completely different style statement.

Are you ready for the last big summertime bash … the three-day Labor Day weekend? It’s a time to celebrate and honor American workers, like you, who work hard supporting their families, contributing to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our great country.

In most households, back to school is a mixture of excitement and anxiety. It’s sort of the equivalent of starting a new job for adults, but at kid level. The anticipation of a new adventure and the fear of the unknown collide, making back to school a major annual event for everyone.

Sometimes summer vacations can be so much “fun,” you have to get back home to relax! Airports, long road trips, and hotels with paper-thin walls can all conspire to make your restful vacation less than restful. If your family summer vacations are not eliciting the desired result for the time and money spent, maybe it’s time to join the millions of people who choose family staycations instead of heading out to find the elusive ideal vacation spot. Transform your own pool and patio into a destination-style location that will enchant the whole family.

Summer is a major season for remodeling, coming right on the heels of National Home Improvement Month in May. People start lining up projects they want to get done before the end of the year. Kitchen and bathroom remodels, basement conversions and replacing worn flooring are popular summer renovations.

If new floors are your summer project and you’ve been running all over town to check out what’s available in flooring, you might end up discouraged and putting it off for yet another year.
