I have had the privilege of writing for the World Floor Covering Association for many years now (and hopefully for many more.) What an incredible organization. They are all about education—for floor covering specialists, for their skilled installers, and especially for YOU, the professional designer and the public. I am aware that professionals from a cross-section of specialties read Designer’s Corner and FloorTalk. With that in mind, my goal is to present relevant, timely topics in the months to come to help you make important flooring choices in sync with current design trends.
Some of the readers’ comments have fueled my excitement for doing what I do, and I wanted to share that. A recent column featuring important “must-haves” for aging in place elicited quite a few comments. One reader commented that they are downsizing to a new home for retirement, and this article opened their eyes as to exactly what they should be looking for, especially in flooring.
Floor covering is a big investment, and my features on porcelain, luxury vinyl planks, hardwood choices and carpet seem to earn numerous comments. That tells me that this information is helpful in guiding readers through the selection process. It’s the first step in leading you to the right choices for your home.
The fact that through this website you can find quality WFCA members—professional retailers who you can trust to continue the learning curve and help you find the right floor coverings, is invaluable. Be assured these retailers are among the best in the nation.
So to that purpose, I want to extend a sincere “Thank You” to the first-name readers who leave their comments for me. It is more than gratifying to know you are out there—and looking for more solid information to come your way in the future.
Best to all of you,
