Style Your Space 3

When it comes to home design, professionals have noted a shift toward turning your home space into your own personal getaway. For many, this means making the space both more practical and beautiful. But how can one make, say, a garage into a stunning, stress-free space?

The local experts at Tailored Living and Protect Floor Coating know that it’s actually easy to turn a boring garage or basement into a space you’ll want to celebrate.

Tailored Living

For a decade, Tailored Living featuring PremierGarage has been one of the premier home organization companies. Armed with expertise and 3-D technology, they flawlessly design and bring to life innovative and one-of-a-kind storage solutions. Whether you are looking to maximize closet space or renovate and redesign your in-garage workshop, Tailored Living will design and organize your space to better meet your needs.

“People are looking to simplify their life through organization,” says Shelley Sedor, owner of Tailored Living Strongsville. “We are here to guide them through the process of choosing and designing a storage solution to cater to their needs.”

The process, she explains, is simple—an expert from Tailored Living visits a home, analyzes the space, and discusses with the homeowner what they may be looking for to maximize the storage capabilities of each area. Then, they use their design software to virtually build your redesigned space. The entire process is interactive, and the end result will simplify busy lives by putting you in control.

“It’s really neat,” Sedor says. “We take measurements and draw the walls and doors in a 3-D model, and then we place the product in there. Homeowners can then see what they designed from different angles, so they can view the space and consider different options before committing.”

Of course, from there, the team of experts continues with installation and clean up. Right before your eyes, the 3-D model will come to life. Sound familiar? You may have seen the Tailored Living experts in action on TV shows such as ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover, HGTV’s Property Brothers at Home, or even W Network’s Love It Or List It.

“Lately, we have noticed a trend toward extending living space into garages,” says Sedor. “People throw parties in their garage, or they have a workshop or a man cave. Some people just get tired of the unnecessary clutter. No matter what you are dreaming, we can tailor an in-home or garage storage solution to fit your lifestyle and extend your living space.”

Whether you are considering custom office design or just looking to organize your laundry room, Tailored Living has the storage, cabinetry, and low-stress design process to get you organized.

Protect Floor Coating

For over 15 years, Maicon de Jesus, Owner of Protect Floor Coating, has provided a variety of stunning epoxy flooring systems to Northeast Ohioans. As epoxy is both decorative and durable, it is the flooring option for any and every home.

“Epoxy is an investment that will not only highlight the beauty of your home, but will also add great value for years to come,” says de Jesus. The value, he explains, lies in the toughness and durability of epoxy floor coating.

Epoxy is a material composed of epoxide resin and polyamine hardener. When applied to concrete, it acts as a durable sealant that both protects and preserves your floor. Epoxy can be paired with a number of base colors and patterns to create a shiny floor with showroom-quality style. It is commonly used in garages or workshops, though it is strong enough to be used in industrial settings and stylish enough to add visual interest to a bar or restaurant setting.

“Some of my favorite flooring projects were done for Tavern Six in Kirtland, the Nauti Mermaid in Downtown Clleveland, and Diamondback Bar and Grill in Eastlake,” he says. “But, epoxy is a perfect option for humidity-prone garages or basements because it seals out water and humidity and protects the floor from cracks or damage. It doesn’t matter what the current state of your floor is—we will repair cracks, even out the floor to create a smoother surface, fix broken water drains, and level your floor to ensure proper drainage.”

Whether you are hoping to achieve a sand, quartz, flake, or metallic effect, epoxy will provide your floor with a finish that is both beautiful and resilient. Neither chemical spills, impacts, nor scraping are likely to damage this tough-as-nails flooring solution. To top it all off, epoxy is easy to clean.

“I know a job was well done when a customer smiles and expresses contentment after the project is finished,” he says.
