Haley Carroll Atlanta Kitchen Haley Carroll joins Construction Resources as the new Design Consultant at the Design Center for Atlanta Kitchen, a Construction Resources company.

Haley is passionate about art and design, and as a Design Consultant, she works with clients to help them fulfill their visions for kitchen and bath renovations.  Whether a client is just updating a few products or creating an entirely new space, Haley enjoys seeing the designs and helping the products come together to personalize a room that meets the client’s vision.

“I enjoyed helping my parents when they were building their home. Seeing it all come together from the ground up was fun. In high school, I always loved art, but I played travel soccer so I never had time to really focus on art or design. When I decided I did not want to play soccer in college anymore, I looked at the ending of my soccer career as an opportunity to finally explore something that I was always passionate about,” says Haley.

This carpet features premium softness with a pattern loop that is sure to create elegance in any room. It is perfect for high traffic areas because it features SmartStrand Technology with Nanloc spill protection. This means it is quick and easy to cleanup any spills. As the only carpet with permanent built-in stain and soil protection that won’t wear off, the SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet is made with renewable materials such as Dupont™ Sorona® polymer, which is OEKO-TEX® certified free from harmful substances. Families will love knowing their carpet is not only soft and beautiful, but is certified for a safe and healthy home.

This carpet proved to be the perfect solution for Sunshine on a Ranney Day’s home makeover for Bobby Hill. A passionate 14-year-old born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalous, Bobby Hill is working to recover from the side effects of neurosurgery.  As part of this dream room makeover, Mohawk Flooring will donate and install Karastan’s Avalon Park carpet with built-in SmartStrand Forever Clean technology.

The renovations for Bobby will include wider doorways and new flooring which will make the daily routine easier and facilitate the use of Bobby’s motorized wheelchair throughout the home. The renovation of two bedrooms will create a therapy suite large enough for medical equipment and a room with a sleeper sofa where one of his parents can rest without needing to leave his side.Bobby Sunshine on a Ranney Day

Although his road to recovery has been challenging, this room makeover from Sunshine on a Ranney Day will spread a little sunshine to Bobby and his family. For more information about Bobby’s story, and other room makeovers, visit www.sunshineonaranneyday.com.
