Determining the proper size for a rug is just as important as finding the right color and pattern. At ProSource we can help you with the dimensions for your particular area as well. Keep in mind that we also offer custom-sizing for hard-to-fit areas and these can be made from every product we sell from High End Wool, Sisal, Cut and Loop Patterns or even Shag.

Here are some dimensions to keep in mind for the Dining Room, First measure the length and width or diameter of the table.  The recommended allowances are 30″ for side chairs and 36″ for armchairs.  Rugs should extend beyond the chairs in the pulled out position to allow room to get in and out of the chair comfortably.

Define your spaces within your Living Room. The size and shape of your rug can help determine and define furniture groupings as well as intended areas of use, such as conversation areas.

Multiple rugs can link one room to another.  Furniture can be centered on the rugs or positioned off the rug depending on the size of the room and feeling you are after.  Companion rugs can be of different patterns, but should share a similar color palette.

Custom Rugs help with the ability to flow from one room to the next.

In bedrooms, one large rug is luxurious, but the bed will cover most of it. Smaller equal-sized rugs used around the bed are another option. The soft comfort of a rug is most appreciated when stepping in and out of bed.

In hallways, the length is optional. Try to place a runner rug so it does not end in the middle of a doorway. In a very long hall, several small runners can work. They do not have to match but the colors should coordinate.

What Makes A Good Floor Tile?

How do we choose a good tile for our home? We all want to get the most “Bang For Our Buck” when it comes to our home remodel projects. Let’s face it, they can get financially out of hand quick if we are not careful. So today I want to look at shopping for Ceramic or Porcelain Tile and how to distinguish one from another. This is even difficult for most {especially untrained} Sales People. Let’s begin with how tile is rated:

When we choose the right the tile the whole room comes together.

When we choose the right the tile the whole room comes together.

Tile Ratings & Terms

All tile products are tested and rated based on a variety of factors so that you are sure to find the right product to meet your needs.

  • Abrasion (Wear) Resistance: This is the degree to which a tile’s surface (often a glaze) will withstand the wear of foot traffic, measured in PEI ratings. These ratings range from very low (Class 0 = wall use only) to higher wear ratings such as Class IV for heavy traffic (suitable for all residential and most commercial applications).
  • Breaking Strength: The strength of porcelain comes from unique clays, fired at extreme temperatures, which produce a harder, denser tile for unmatched durability and performance. Breaking strength is assessed by how much weight is needed to cause breakage. Porcelain tile surpasses the industry standard of 250 lbs.
  • Mohs: This is a scale of hardness ranging from 1 (talc) to 10 (diamond) used to determine a material’s scratch resistance. Porcelain tile often has a rating of 7, 8 or 9, while other, less scratch resistant non-porcelain tiles are rated at 5 or 6. In the Moh’s scale, each rating is 10 times harder than the previous number. For a point of reference, natural granite is usually 6 or 7.
  • Water Absorption: Water absorption is conveyed as the percentage of water absorbed by the body of the tile. Porcelain tile is ideal for wet-area applications such as tub surrounds, showers and any area where water may be present because it is “impervious” to water with a rating of 0.5% water absorption or less. Notably, the more impervious the tile, the more frost resistant, meaning it can be used outdoors. Be sure to check product specifications.
Tile used outdoors will  require a higher slip resistance that most indoor tile.

Tile used outdoors will require a higher slip resistance that most indoor tile.

  • Dynamic Coefficient of Friction (DCOF): Dynamic Coefficient of Friction is the latest, most reliable measure for indicating slip potential on a tile’s surface. Porcelain tile must have a DCOF of 0.42 for “level interior floors expected to be walked upon when wet” (as stated on the Tile Council of North America website). This new measure replaces the 0.6 reference that was formerly the standard for the industry.
  • Shade Variation: The color and details of porcelain tile may vary from piece to piece and from run to run. While manufacturers often have proprietary methods for conveying the anticipated variation for tile products, most reference terms such as “low shade variation” for very little color or design change from tile to tile and “high shade variation” to denote dramatic differences from tile to tile. It’s important to be aware of shade variation prior to installation to avoid surprises. Likewise, it’s recommended to work from multiple boxes of tile to achieve a favorable mix.
Slate looks tend to have more variation from tile to tile.

Slate looks tend to have more variation from tile to tile.

  • Through-body: This refers to the presence of color throughout the thickness of a tile. Some tile only has color on the top surface glaze; others have partial through-body color.

Porcelain tile outperforms other tile types on tests of strength and absorption.

The most important issues for most Home Owners start with Style, Color, and Patterns.

Large Format Tile
Large format tiles are extremely popular in today’s décor. Many Manufacturer’s product’s are available in large sizes up to 24″x24″. The beauty of the big size is that it creates an open field with less grout line. Whether you’re tiling a small bathroom or a sizable family room, consider using large format tiles to create a feeling of natural space.One of the most popular sizes I sell is 12×24 for a very Contemporary look.

12x24's give a very unique look to any room.

12×24’s give a very unique look to any room.

Color Options
Today’s tiles come in a diverse array of color palettes. Neutral and subdued or rich and opulent – no matter your color needs, ProSource Wholesale Floorcovering’s  has the right selection for you.

With more options than ever before, it’s important to answer some key questions prior to selecting your tile.

  • Does the space have natural, overhead or ambient lighting?
  • Is this a heavy traffic area?
  • What other elements exist in the room’s décor? Is there wallpaper, lots of furniture or a dominant color scheme?

With these questions answered, select a tile color (or colors) that complements your overall décor. Softer, neutral tones may be the right contrast to busy patterns on walls or upholstery, to create a more open feel for the room. Deep colors may add warmth to a large space or help to showcase light wood furniture or fabrics. The professionals at ProSource can always help you with your Design decisions.

Metallic finishes have unique highlights in their color variation.

Custom Patterns
Tile patterns mix colors and sizes to achieve clever designs that create an air of custom style. Create custom patterns using contrasting light and dark tiles or contrasting finishes. Frame the tile flooring with a border of mosaics or liners for an area rug effect. Mix modular sizes to add an unexpected touch of whimsy to a kitchen floor. The possibilities are endless.

Finding the ideal floor coverings for a Rustic Bathroom or Kitchen

For many clients, picking the perfect floor covering for a bathroom is as simple as looking for the best investment that will provide years of loyal service. However, for some consumers, finding the ideal flooring option that adheres to their interior design is just as important, so knowing the ins and outs of today’s most popular home design styles could prove to be invaluable in your sales pitch. The rustic decorative scheme is one that has remained popular, and it embraces light and airy furnishings, as well as blurring the lines between nature and the indoors. Here are a few flooring types that could be tailor-made to your clients’ design plans.

Porcelain Tile that looks like wood is a great choice for a Rustic Look with a versatile product.

Porcelain Tile that looks like wood is a great choice for a “Rustic Look” with a versatile product.

Wood grain vinyl flooring
Hardwood flooring is usually among the top choices for homeowners working with a rustic aesthetic, but hardwoods are not the ideal option for bathrooms. Your clients can replicate the look of wood flooring with ease by utilizing wood grain vinyl flooring. This floor covering has all the attractive wood grains and textures that you’ll find with hardwoods but is far more moisture and scratch-resistant, making it ideal for bathrooms. In addition, many of these vinyl floors come in sheets that can be custom-cut to fit the dimensions of the client’s space, which means that the installation process can be completed rather quickly and your clients’ bathroom can come together in an afternoon.

Vinyl is a very durable product and today's digital imaging gives you a very realistic look.

Laminate floors
Another option for clients who are looking to replicate the look of wood flooring is to opt for laminate floors. These floor coverings are among the most cost-effective products on the market and can be installed over an existing subfloor. Additionally, many of these boards snap together, making installation a breeze and ensuring a quick and easy process when replacing a floorboard in the future if needed.

Mannington Historic Oak would be an excellent choice for your Rustic Kitchen.

Tile and stone floors
The old mainstay in bathrooms is tile and stone flooring, and considering the wide range of options available to your clients, they’ll be hard-pressed to find a style that won’t pair beautifully with their interior designs. Tile is one of the most durable floor coverings your clients can choose from and will require minimal maintenance to keep it looking its best. If your customers are revamping the entire bathroom, suggest a glass tile backsplash behind their bathroom vanity that will pair very well with their floor coverings and introduce more dynamic hues in the space.

Natural Stone can give you a Rustic Feel with an added bit of elegance.

When considering a product to give you an authentic looking Rustic bathroom or kitchen, consider vinyl. Below is a chart comparing CORETECplus to other commonly used products.

Let’s Talk Tile

Which is better Ceramic or Porcelain Tile flooring?

I hear comments very often like this: “I only want Porcelain Tile” So I in turn ask: Why?
Let’s start the discussion. It is a passionate one for flooring experts I know, everyone has an opinion.

Keep in mind, when you comment on my opinion, that’s what it is, my opinion.

I personally have a Glazed Ceramic tile and a Glazed Porcelain Tile in my personal home, so some of my opinions come from actual life. So, I start my opinion with this comment: “In a normal family home, it does not matter whether your tile is ceramic or porcelain based, go with the color and style that suits you and your Interior Design, budget, and space in general, but base your selection on a few criteria.”

Porcelain is less porous, it is more dense, in most cases more scratch resistant, but ceramic will hold up in a normal family home. I have found over the last 25 years of flooring sales that Installation is critical, get a knowledgeable tile installer, if you don’t know one, call your local ProSource Wholesale Floorcoverings Store and they will guide you to some excellent people in the trade.

In my home I have a ceramic tile in my upstairs. My house is on a hill and I repaired some cracks above my door at the same time I set my Ceramic Tile. Years later, the cracks are back above the doors but my tile is fine, obviously my floor has moved. Downstairs on a concrete slab, I have a Glazed Porcelain Tile. I was moving a Freezer and one of the feet caught on ever so slight corner and my porcelain chipped. So, again installation was some of the reason this happened.

Tile can be used in many different patterns

Tile can be used in many different patterns

Let’s take a look at how I know if a Tile is suitable for my application. You will hear these terms about rating tiles, from knowledgeable Sales people: PEI Rating, MOHS scale, Dynamic Coefficient of Friction, Breaking Strength, these all matter depending on your application. All of these ratings should be readily available from the Store your shopping at, if they don’t understand or can’t get you that information — LEAVE Immediately and find a Professional Tile Installer that can guide you to the proper Store.

Tile is a great product for the floors and the walls.

Tile Performance Ratings

All tile products are tested and rated based on a variety of factors so that you are sure to find the right product to meet your needs. Here are key ratings for your reference.

  • Abrasion (Wear) Resistance: This is the degree to which a tile’s surface (often a glaze) will withstand the wear of foot traffic, measured in PEI ratings. These ratings range from very low (Class 0 = wall use only) to higher wear ratings such as Class IV for heavy traffic (suitable for all residential and most commercial applications).
  • Breaking Strength: The strength of porcelain comes from unique clays, fired at extreme temperatures, which produce a harder, denser tile for unmatched durability and performance. Breaking strength is assessed by how much weight is needed to cause breakage. Porcelain tile surpasses the industry standard of 250 lbs.
  • Mohs: This is a scale of hardness ranging from 1 (talc) to 10 (diamond) used to determine a material’s scratch resistance. Porcelain tile often has a rating of 7, 8 or 9, while other, less scratch resistant non-porcelain tiles are rated at 5 or 6. In the Moh’s scale, each rating is 10 times harder than the previous number. For a point of reference, natural granite is usually 6 or 7.
  • Water Absorption: Water absorption is conveyed as the percentage of water absorbed by the body of the tile. Porcelain tile is ideal for wet-area applications such as tub surrounds, showers and any area where water may be present because it is impervious to water with a rating of 0.5% absorption or less. Notably, the more impervious the tile, the more frost resistant, meaning it can be used outdoors. Be sure to check product specifications for details and recommendations for use.
  • Dynamic Coefficient of Friction (DCOF): Dynamic Coefficient of Friction is the latest, most reliable measure for indicating slip potential on a tile’s surface. Porcelain tile must have a DCOF of 0.42 for “level interior floors expected to be walked upon when wet” (as stated on the Tile Council of North America website). This new measure replaces the COF of 0.6 reference that was formerly the standard for the industry.
  • Shade Variation: The color and details of porcelain tile may vary from piece to piece and from run to run. While manufacturers often have proprietary methods for conveying the anticipated variation for tile products, most use terms such as “low shade variation” for very little color or design change from tile to tile and “high shade variation” to denote dramatic differences from tile to tile. It’s important to be aware of shade variation prior to installation to avoid surprises. Likewise, it’s recommended to work from multiple boxes of tile to achieve a favorable mix.
  • Through-body: This refers to the presence of color throughout the thickness of a tile. Some tile only has color on the top surface glaze; others have partial through-body color.

Here is a video showing the manufacturing process for tile. The process is the same for Ceramic or Porcelain but the temperature at which they are fired is hotter for a porcelain, closing more of the pores of the clay, thus making a more dense and less porous tile.

One of the problems encountered from Flooring Sales People that are not trained or experienced is that they tell Consumers that porcelain is the same color all the way through. This is simply not correct. In order for a tile to be the same color all the way through, it needs to be a through body porcelain tile.

Through Body Porcelain tiles are extremely hard and impermeable, which makes the tiles highly resistant to moisture, staining and wear. In producing this type of porcelain tile, a color pigment is mixed with the clay body powder, giving the finished tile a consistent color throughout the body of the tile. This type of tile withstands temperature extremes, and may be used in exterior applications, including pool linings.

Quick Tips

  • Darker grout colors are easier to keep clean than lighter ones
  • Small grout joints (1/4-inch) have a more contemporary feel and are easier to keep clean. A larger grout joint (1/2-inch) feels more rustic.
  • Choose the right size tile for each application. Large rooms will benefit from bigger tiles, such as 16 x16 inches, 18 x18 inches or even 20 x 20 inches. Smaller spaces, such as bathrooms, will look best in tiles 12×12-inches in size or smaller.
  • Ask your local flooring dealer for advice on coordinating different types of tile and mixing tile with other flooring materials.
  • Use a reputable installer to ensure the look and longevity of your tile installation.

Benefits Of A Tile Floor

  • Hard-wearing
  • Hygienic and easy to clean
  • Moisture-resistant
  • Won’t stain
  • Never needs waxing or sealing
  • Never needs refinishing
  • Comes in many shapes, styles and colors for every decor

What’s the Best Flooring for my Kitchen?

When it comes to putting a new floor in your Kitchen there are many options to design a beautiful room. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular.

Hardwood Flooring

The first option to explore is Hardwood Flooring and one of the”Most Popular” would be the ResistX Brand. ResistX offers a variety of textures, color washed planks and an assortment of exotics in contrasting light and dark tones. A lifetime of durability combined with a vision of elegance make this hardwood flooring collection a classic American work of art.

A quality hardwood floor isn’t just an aesthetic investment; it also helps boost a home’s selling price.

Wood floors don’t just benefit people looking to sell their home. They also offer many advantages for those looking to stick around for awhile. The average lifespan of a hardwood floor is 30 years. That may seem like a long commitment to a homeowner who updates and changes décor every few years. But, hardwood works well with many different decorating styles and offers timeless beauty.

New technology in stains and finishes makes it easier than ever to keep hardwood floors looking beautiful for decades. A regular schedule of sweeping or vacuuming and the occasional use of a professional cleaning product is all it takes.
