Like the "magic carpet" of myth and fable, area rugs truly can transport you, and your house guests and friends. They can transport your rooms from ordinary to extraordinary. In fact, the fastest way to change a mood or character of a room is to add an area rug. Using the appropriate underlayment, area rugs can go on top of any kind of flooring, usually with dramatic, magical results. Area rugs also can transform and translate.
The right color and texture area rug can transform your room from plain to passionate, from ho-hum to yum-yum. The correct pattern and placement can translate your style into a language all can understand. Or think beginning and ending. A fabulous area rug can make a unique foundation or starting point around which your entire room’s décor can be coordinated. The rug becomes your design centerpiece.
Ceramic tile has been around for centuries, and with today's technology manufacturers have created new design and application possibilities that were not available a decade ago. If you have never lived with ceramic tile before or if it has been a long time since you have done so, you will be amazed at the wide selection of colors, sizes, shapes and new textures that are now available. Natural ingredients make it naturally beautiful. Ceramic tile is a natural product made up of clay, a number of other naturally occurring minerals, and water. Glazed ceramic tile has a ceramic coating applied to the tile body, which gives the tile its color and finish. Glazed ceramic tile is the natural choice for your interior floors and walls. And there’s logic to glazed ceramic, through these numerous qualities. Durable - a properly installed ceramic tile will outperform and outlast nearly any other floor covering product created for the same application. Easy care - and that’s for you, right? Glazed ceramic tile resists stains, odors, and dirt and can be cleaned up with a damp mop or sponge or common household cleaners. Scratch resistant - Grade III and Grade IV glazed ceramic tiles are extremely resistant to scratching and you never have to worry about a cut or tear like you do with some other types of floors. Environmentally friendly - ceramic tile is manufactured using natural materials and does not retain odors, allergens, or bacteria. Beautiful and versatile - modern ceramic manufacturing technology has created virtually an unlimited number of colors, sizes, styles, shapes and textures that will add rich beauty and character to any room’s decor. Fire resistant - ceramic tile doesn't burn nor emit toxic fumes. Even hot kitchen pans or skillets will not scorch or melt the surface of glazed ceramic tile. That can be a comfort when you’re actively preparing food. Water resistant - most glazed ceramic tile has a dense body that permits little or no accumulation of moisture. This means spills from common liquids found in a kitchen are not a big concern. In summary, ceramic tile is a practical, functional choice for your floor that offers you a unique opportunity for self-expression because of its beauty, flexibility and design potential.

We also carry only the highest quality, most trusted brands in stone flooring. Your investment in stone flooring for your home requires doing business with people who have the highest marks for honesty and integrity. Galleria of Floors delivers on both. Why build with natural stone? For a number of solid, natural reasons. Natural stone is strong and stable to live with. It exudes a rich, organic, beautiful surface and has a confident, timeless “presence” in any room. Go ahead -- rub your hand across any natural stone product. Can you feel the eons of time it took to produce this natural wonder of Mother Earth? It’s a fact. The formative process for natural stone began millions of years ago, deep beneath the surface of the earth. A combination of heat and pressure created blocks of natural stone, including granite, marble, travertine, limestone, and slate. As the earth's crust began to grow and erode, it pushed minerals up from its core, forming massive rock deposits, which we refer to as “quarries”. Walk across a natural stone floor and tread on the same material quarried and constructed by ancient people of nobility and notoriety. From ancient monuments like the pyramids in Egypt and the majestic Greek and Roman temples, to the great civilizations of India and China, natural stone has been an important part of architecture throughout history. It is the world’s oldest building material -- imagine its beauty and elegance in your new home or remodeling project.
