Atlanta fine carpetIn addition to hardwoods, tile and the finest options from Mohawk, Construction Resources and Builders Floor Covering and Tile have one of the best examples of traditional American carpet, Karastan. Karastan carpets are high quality, environmentally-friendly wool carpets that you have to feel to believe. Karastan carpets have impressed and amazed since the 1920s, and these rare and wonderful carpets and rugs continue to be sought after by homeowners with distinctive tastes for quality and beauty.

Karastan carpets use the finest in imported New Zealand wool, and there are a number of advantages that make them an attractive option for those considering new, high-tech polymer carpets. For instance, Karastan offers benefits like:

  • Comfort. Inherent bulk and resilience gives Karastan wools superior sound and heat insulating properties.
  • Easy to Clean. Natural resilience to dirt and soiling make Karastan wool carpets easy to maintain.
  • Non-Allergenic. Karastan wools are safe for your family. Wool is a non-allergenic fiber; it does not promote the growth of bacteria or dust mites, or give off harmful emissions.
  • Environmentally Friendly. Karastan practices environmentally responsible, energy-efficient, and safe manufacturing procedures that pair well with the natural beauty and sustainability of New Zealand wool.
  • Strong and Durable. Patented woven technology ensures Karastan wools are incredibly durable and strong, and are built to last. Today’s Karastan carpets are made with the same care as the carpets the company premiered at the World’s Fair.
  • Crush Resistant. The carpet’s natural crimp gives Karastan wools built-in resilience to crushing. Furniture marks disappear when the fiber is gently moistened and allowed to recover naturally.
  • Inherently Fire Safe. Naturally flame retardant, Karastan wools are difficult to ignite, do not melt and are self-extinguishable.

When choosing your next carpet, keep Karastan in mind, and stop by our Atlanta design centers to see the color profiles we have available and try out samples of this luxury natural carpet for yourself!

2013 Consumers ChoiceConstruction Resources, Inc. announces that Atlanta Kitchen was recently honored with a Consumers’ Choice Award from Survey Sampling International, a global leader in consumer polling, in the Custom Granite Countertops Supplier/Installer category. Held at the Grand Atrium on Thursday, Nov. 14 in Atlanta, the awards exemplify business excellence in customer service and superior value.

“This marks the second year in a row that Atlanta Kitchen has received this award,” explained Mitch Hires, president of Construction Resources, Inc. “We have worked hard this year to go above and beyond for our customers in order to provide them with quality products. We couldn’t have won this award without them.”

Award recipients are determined through customer service ratings as a result of a three phase process. Atlanta Kitchen was first nominated by consumers based on its service, value and professionalism. Then, a yearly open ended survey was conducted followed by an ethics review in which Atlanta Kitchen came out on top.

In addition to its Consumers’ Choice Awards, Atlanta Kitchen is also accredited by the Marble Institute of America. This accreditation recognizes companies that meet the industry’s highest standards for business activities, product knowledge, fabrication and installation.

“After going through the accreditation process and then being awarded based on our customers’ satisfaction, it just shows that Atlanta Kitchen is the primary choice for countertops and other specialty home improvements in Atlanta,” continued Hires.

After enjoying a night of good food, hearing guest speaker and bestselling author Myra Golden discuss her book Beyond Wow and meeting guest of honor Belinda Skelton of WSB Radio, Atlanta Kitchen is looking forward to serving its customers even better in 2014.

Atlanta Flooring Experts Give BackAt the beginning of November, in a partnership with  SR Homes, Builders Floor Covering and Tile gave back to a local Atlanta shelter, Jesse’s House. A not for profit organization  that offers emergency and long-term housing to at-risk girls from 7 to 17 years of age. The youth served at Jesse’s House have been removed from their home due to abuse, neglect, abandonment, and/or delinquency.  Jesse’s House ensures these girls have a safe and caring place to call home until a permanent placement is found.  Since inception in 1998, Jesse’s House has served 710 girls across the state of Georgia.  In 2012, Jesse’s House served 46 girls from 15 different counties. Their mission is to provide safe and structure care in a nurturing environment in order to adequately prepare them for life.  Read More→

High Sales mean big charity donationAnother year, another record broken! Georgia buyers looking for great deals on home upgrades have helped us make another entry in the history books for raising money for the Homes for Our Troops charity. Last year, we donated $7,741.40 to this Artisan-sponsored organization from the October Counters for a Cause clearance sale. Based on this year’s sale revenue, our contribution will be $8,211.91, and we are hoping that this new amount will keep us as the top donor to the Counters for a Cause fund put together by Artisan!

While it beats what we raised last year, the amount donated is just the start, as it will be pooled with other fabricators from all over the country; and Artisan Group members in total have raised nearly $60,000 for Homes For Our Troops in the past two years. This national sale event is just one way we all work together to give back. Another way is through the donation of products and services, like with the construction of two modified Hawkinsville, Georgia homes for Homes for Our Troops earlier this year.

Even if you missed the sale, you can still find the perfect addition for your home at our Atlanta design centers. We are even expanding the facilities in our Decatur Design campus, and will soon have a larger selection for glass in addition to our 10,000 square foot design studio and 20,000 square foot slab gallery. If Decatur isn’t convenient to you, we have design centers in Buckhead, Alpharetta and Gwinnett that are ready to help you bring your home personalization for kitchen or bath from design to life!

Color options for marble countersWhile we quite frequently explore the virtues of classical white marble countertops for kitchen, bath and accents, simple white is not the only option available when it comes to marble surfaces. Another popular option we carry is Bardiglio Nuvolato marble, which takes the traditional white options for marble and turns them on their head.

This is because Bardiglio marble is a more clay-rich metamorphic rock, though it is quarried in the same Appenine Mountain region that produce the sought-after white marbles like Carrara, Venatino and Callacatta. Bardiglio has the same gorgeous texture and finishes, and comes in darker tones as light veining plays across a darker base surface in unique movements. This darker base color can make a luxurious imprint on areas where lighter marble would not work, or can give an amazing contrast or detail to white marble or white traditional surfaces. With Bardiglio marble, you can get the sought-after properties of marble but do something outside of the ordinary. Read More→
