Stoneridge Voted Best of Houzz
Stoneridge has been recognized in the 2015 Best of Houzz awards, and we couldn’t be more excited!
Houzz is a wonderful community and resource for homeowners, and one we at Stoneridge Flooring Design are very proud to be a part of. For those of you who haven’t heard of Houzz, it’s essentially a one-stop shop for all businesses and industries that fall in the “home” category.
In a recent press release, Liza Hausman, vice president of Industry Marketing for Houzz, captured the spirit of the community brilliantly.
“Houzz connects people with the best home professional for their project by providing the only 360-degree view of a professional, from their portfolio, client reviews, awards and accreditations to their work style and expertise based on their participation in the Houzz community,” said Hausman. “We’re delighted to join our community in recognizing the talented professionals on Houzz who are delivering incredible designs and delightful customer experiences.”
Houzz recognizes those community professionals that go above in beyond in Customer Service or Design, in what they call the Best of Houzz. We at Stoneridge are thrilled, honored, proud and incredibly humbled to have been awarded a Best of Houzz 2015 for Customer Service. This designation was awarded based on several factors, including the number and quality of client reviews.
So you—all of you. Our wonderful Stoneridge customers. We have you to thank, which we do, from the bottom of our hearts. It is an honor working with each one of you.
It’s official—the holidays are behind us and there are twelve (well, eleven and a half now) months ahead. January brings with it a clean slate, as well as an endless list of possibilities for the year ahead. Is this the year you’ll finally tackle that kitchen remodel? The year you’ll add your ideal shower to your master bath? The year you get that Mohawk hardwood floor you’ve been dreaming about?
Whatever your plans for 2015, the annual Home Show, presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield, is a fantastic place to start. You get to interact with builders and contractors who can help answer questions you might have about an upcoming project or provide inspiration for future projects. Learn about new products for the home and add to your list of must-haves for your future dream home. If you’re thinking about buying or building a home, or simply want to remodel your current home, the Home Show will provide an endless amount of information and inspiration.

Merry Christmas to You
One of the most pressing conundrums you’ll face this holiday season—what should I get for Christmas?
We’ve all been there. In the mad shopping rush, we naturally begin to consider what we’d like to see under the Christmas tree. This is especially true for homeowners, because no home is ever completely finished. Whether this is the first Christmas in your home or the twenty-first, every homeowner has a magic someday list for upgrades. The perfect escape in a bathroom. The remodeled kitchen. The hardwood floors you’ve wanted for years. This holiday season, consider getting yourself something that will last for many years to come, with improvements and updates from superior manufacturers that are built to last.
Whether it’s the perfect bathroom—and who hasn’t fantasized about their dream shower?— Anderson hardwood flooring for the living room, Mohawk carpets for the bedrooms, or American Olean ceramic tiling for your kitchen, Stoneridge is here to help you realize your home’s full potential.
You’ve heard that your home is your largest investment, and it’s the truth. Aside from giving you the home you’ve always dreamed of, upgrades are a fantastic way to increase property and resale value. It’s a gift that doesn’t pause before giving back. So this holiday season, give yourself a gift that will last this Christmas and many more to come.
'Tis (Approaching) the Season
As the first day of autumn passes us, we have to face reality: the holidays will be here before we know it. Which means, of course, it’s time to start planning. And decorating.
One of the things we love most about the holidays is the chance to see our homes dressed up as they aren’t ordinarily. Whether the decorations are for you or your guests, there is something about this time of year that can coax the most hardened heart to get into the spirit. Be it awesome fall parties, preparing for Thanksgiving, or the nonstop extravaganza that hits us in December, odds are your home will be more open now to family than it is at any other time in the year. Which makes this the best time of year—right before the madness really begins—to consider redoing your floors.
Let’s face it, one of the things we love most about entertaining friends and family is the chance to really show off our homes. And why shouldn’t we? For most people, a house is the largest investment they will ever make. Updating the home adds to the value, keeps your look modern and fresh, and gives your holiday guests something to talk about over turkey dinner.
Right now, Mohawk is hosting their Anniversary Sale, where you can save on select carpets, hardwoods, and tile with instant discounts. Come visit one of our store locations for details or to discuss other ideas on how you can prepare your home for the holiday madness. With September behind us, the time to make your plans is now.
Flooring is an investment, and when you make the decision to remodel your kitchen and bathroom, you might find yourself weighing the pros of look versus the cons of practicality. Hardwood floors remain one of the most popular flooring selections for achieving a classy, timeless look. However, when it comes to rooms where water is frequently run or hard, heavy items are more prone to being dropped, hardwoods are less practical.
For those homeowners planning or considering a remodel, the hardwood look isn’t completely out of the question. After all, if you have your heart set on hardwood, it might be difficult to envision your new kitchen with any other floor. For this reason, wood grain tile has recently spiked in popularity. Ceramic or porcelain tile is known for strength and durability in the kitchen or bathroom, but with a wood grain overlay, hardwood-loving homeowners can achieve the look they want without the expense and extra maintenance.
If you’re thinking of remodeling your bathroom or kitchen and can’t picture anything but hardwood, call or visit the friendly staff at Stoneridge Flooring Design at any of our three locations. We carry Marazzi and Mohawk wood grain tile in a variety of looks, including rustic wood, modern wood, and traditional wood. Want ideas for redesign or feedback on your plans? We love talking floors and helping you bring your vision to life just as you pictured it, if not better.
Don’t forget to stop by our Nixa location (1550 N. Main) when you have a moment to take a look at the updates we are making to our showroom!
