Union Furniture and Flooring wants to ensure customers are taking a step in the right direction when selecting flooring. Being the oldest flooring retailer in Franklin County, Interior Designer Danielle Buschmann and Flooring Specialist Linda Buhr are excited to help customers find affordable and stylish flooring for their home or business. Union Furniture and Flooring has a full-line flooring showroom with any type of flooring you could possibly need from reputable brands like: Shaw, Mannington, Bruce, Mohawk, Beaulieu, American Olean, Marrazzi, and Armstrong.

When choosing the right flooring, a few simple questions will need to be answered so that the professionals at Union Furniture and Flooring can understand your living space, lifestyle and expectations such as: What rooms in your home are you making selections for? How much traffic will you have in the area? Do you have pets? What kind of flooring do you currently have? This is important for installation preparations. Do you have a budget in mind?

Union Furniture and Flooring professionals say the newest trend in carpets is luxury soft. All the manufactures are combining performance with softness. The styles will vary from solids, patterns, and textures with flecks. Union Furniture and Flooring also have a great line of area rugs that also have the capabilities for custom designs.

When selecting a hardwood floor, you will have several different types of solid hardwoods to choose from. You will find a very contemporary sleek hardwood to a rustic hand hewn distressed wood. Important aspects in wood selections to keep in mind are correct subfloor and the type of traffic it will have. If your home is very active with kids and pets, the distressed woods would be a great selection for your family’s lifestyle.

One of the newest types of flooring is Luxury Vinyl tile. It is available in both ceramic looks as well as a wood plank style. According to Union Furniture and Flooring professionals, the biggest advantage it has is that it is both warmer and softer than a normal hard surface floor. It has the capability of being installed over most existing floors and can even be glued directly to concrete if being used in a basement.

Laminate flooring is still very popular for those who want the look of real hardwood. Performance is excellent, and it is very easy to maintain.

There can be many different looks achieved with tile and it is found in many different areas of the home. Besides floors, designer tiles have become very popular for showers, tub surrounds, backsplashes, accent walls, and poolside patios. The possibilities are endless at Union Furniture and Flooring.

“When working in a family business, we look at each customer and project individually, Buschmann and Buhr said. “We treat them as we would our own family. We love what we do and we want the customer to love what they select for years to come.”
