Recent floor and decor articles

By
Home Builder with The Flooring Girl

While I may have been a bit absent in the Rain lately, I can assure you that I've been a busy bee on my own blog and on Pinterest.

 

Here are some of the recent articles I've written:

2018 Hardwood Flooring Trends - I just published this yesterday and it has historically been my #1 article for the last few years.  In 2016, it got over 100,000 clicks.  Last year's didn't do as well, as I only ranked #2.  My competition wrote an article on this Oct 2nd of last year and beat me to the punch.  Hence I published early this year.

 

I hope this article does well.  If you want to help me out, pls go to the article..and leave a comment.  It would also be awesome if you shared it on social media.

 

What are the most popular shades of gray paint?  This is my first article on painting.  I plan to write a bunch more.  It provides a guide on the most popular shades of gray and how to coodinate the shades for a gray accent wall.  I created a pin on pinterest and it seems to be taking off pretty quickly. It already 584 repins since Saturday.

 

How to keep dark hardwood floors clean.  Yes, I get this question all the time - is it hard to clean and maintain dark floors.  So, I provide 10 tips to make things easier.

 

How to save hardwood floors from water damage (or a flood) - While this may not help some of the recent hurricane victims with major flooding, it certainly can help many where they've had moderate damage, as well as all the water damage that happens throughout the year.  Here in NY, we have a lot of issues in the winter with pipes freezing or ice damming.  But, the truth is, it can happen at any time, especially if you have a toilet leak or a water heater burst.  So, I hope this comes in handy for when people need it the most.

 

My traffic from pinterest continues to grow.  I'm now a bit over 16,000 clicks/month.  You can read about my pinterest tips here.

I would think that your post on keeping dark hardwood floors clean should get plenty of hits as well!  It always seems to be a challenge to keep dusty footprints from showing.

All good stuff, Debbie.  However, the most popular shades of gray are definitely burgundy and gold.

Always, burgundy and gold.  Hail to the Redskins!

I left a message for you, Debbie, because I know how important comments are in a professional's personal blog. However, I disagree about bamboo. I had the same thoughts, and then last winter I went to a store and the clerk laughed at me. She said that was the old bamboo. The new bamboo holds up to pets and high heels and doesn't scratch. She gave me a sample. I tried to scratch it, banged it hard with a hammer over and over, nothing. Soaked it in a sink of water for 5 hours, and nothing happened to it. Very different from the bamboo I installed 15 years ago. Maybe you should take another look?

Hi Debbie - the article on protecting wood floors from water damage is particularly helpful.
