Joe Boehm, senior interior designer for Better Homes and Gardens, took some time out of his busy day to give Shaw Floors a look into the world of interior design and style. Style is broad and has become highly influenced by the internet which allows consumers to add their own personal influence when decorating. Ethnic and global styles, where consumers decorate with items from their travels is one trend Joe has been seeing. Another trend is the revival of the bland color palette, full of whites and grays where colors and textures are built up. This could be in the form of a rough textured carpet complimented by a grey stained hardwood floor. Shaw Floors offers a full range of flooring in colors and styles to meet your needs

By: Latricia Thomas A local company that's known for its carpet is taking the hardwood flooring world by storm with their engineered product called Epic. When you see Shaw trucks on the Interstate, you might assume they're carrying carpet.Shaw's Vice President of Hard Surface Business Development Scott Sandlin says, We're becoming more than just a carpet company and it gives people a lot of opportunity.But if those trucks came from the South Pittsburg plant, the freight actually comes from a forest. After adjusting to the temperature in the factory for a few days, stacks of wood veneers made from hickory, walnut, oak and cherry, move on to the assembly line. You have a back veneer and a face veneer and they will go into the press and they will be adhered to an HDF board, like a sandwich, Sandlin says.When the humitidy changes in your home, or the temperature changes, it doesn't shrink or grow.After the press, it's time for a quick touch up before the wood is sliced into strips. The 145 employees that work in the South Pittsburg plant check the planks during several steps of the manufacturing process, thankful these jobs returned after Shaw shut down the outdated yarn facility that once stood here.It was devastating when we shut it down so we were glad we could bring wood into this community to make it into what it is today, says Sandlin. So that made a big difference for South Pittsburg and Marion County.Back on the line, it's time for cosmetics. It goes down this line, with 8 or 9 stages of the finish being put on. It's just impractical to do it outside of the factory. It's almost like paining your car out of the factory, according to Sandlin.Add the Made in America box, and it's time to ship to distributors and then to a home near you. We are very proud that this product is made in Marion County and ships out of our distribution facilities in Northwest Georgia, Sandlin says. That's very important to us.

Design creative carpet solutions. Many people would like to vary the color of wall-to-wall carpet in their house, but don't like the chopped up look of one color meeting another at a doorway. If you want your main living areas to have gray carpet, but want the bedroom to be burgundy, let the gray carpet run around the perimeter of the bedroom and put the burgundy in the center.
