MultiStone Countertops garbs kitchens in a wide selection of speckled stones. With today's Groupon, homeowners can invite their knowledgeable staff into homes to ask questions about each mineral's durability, color, and mouthfeel. Adopt 30 square feet of level-one granite ($35–$45/sq. ft.) or 55 square feet of rare level-three granite to cap a mid-size kitchen's cabinetry with complexly colored swirls ($2,200 with installation). Marble or Zodiaq and Caesarstone quartz are also available and usually take under a week to complete a job from measurement to installation. After installation, all countertops are topped with Stain-Pro of sealant to protect them against grease, grubbiness, and late night pig-outs.
Sometimes, it's the little things that transform a room—a vase of flowers here, an inconspicuous duck blind there—but other times, something more drastic is necessary. That's where Ultimate Stone comes in. Their technicians upgrade kitchens, bathrooms, and even office spaces with surfaces of sleek natural or engineered stone. Besides elegant countertops and vanities, the craftspeople provide tiling services for floors and walls, and are available for maintenance and repairs should any of the tiles gain sentience and escape during the night.
Century Tile helps dress naked or aging floorboards with a sweeping selection of more than 10,000 carpet, tile, hardwood, and laminate options. Customers can disguise trapdoor entrances to vampire sleeping spaces with 3/4-inch solid-oak planks ($3.59/sq. ft.) to prevent nosy houseguests from disturbing an undead roommate’s daytime nap. Or patrons may opt to cover kitchen floors with durable, low-maintenance Terra Stone vinyl tile ($2.99/sq. ft.) or Allure Foundation laminate flooring ($1.59/sq. ft.), which provide a sturdy stage for impromptu break-dance competitions. Appalachian Trail broadloom carpeting ($2.49/sq. ft.) adds cushion to rough foot highways, and random-length linear glass-mosaic tiles ($11.98/sq. ft.) add a pop of color to barren backsplashes and bathrooms.
Dedicated to conserving the globe's forests, Mr. Bamboo, Inc.'s technicians crown surfaces with durable, lustrous flooring and accessories forged from strand-woven bamboo—which can regrow on its own and sprouts faster than other trees traditionally cut down for hardwood flooring. Professional staffers arrive at homes and offices to install BamStrand flooring with glue or nails, or the BamLoc variety, which they snugly snap into place. Both styles—which are naturally harder than conventional red-oak and maple flooring—are safe for pets and come prefinished with six coats of German ceramic finish.
To further support its environmentally conscious philosophies, Mr. Bamboo, Inc. harvests only the moso bamboo species, which is too large for pandas to eat or whittle into snow globes for their gift shops. The company also frequently collaborates with the U.S. Green Building Council and local contractors building sustainable homes.
