Cramers Carpet One Floor & Home Projects 

John and Sarah's Townhouse in Morristown

This four-story townhouse in Morristown needed a stair runner that would work from the basement family room all the way to the fourth floor bedrooms. John and Sarah's style is modern and fashion forward, but they also needed durable and practical for their high traffic and pet. This geometric pattern on a chocolate background gives them plenty of style while hiding soil. And the commercial construction gives them all the durability they will ever need.

 

After installing the geometric runner, the homeowners decided the pattern was just not right for their taste and for the style they are trying to achieve in their home. Thanks to Cramers Carpet One's "Beautiful Guarantee," they were able to change the runner to this much simpler wool sisal. It adds warmth and texture, while creating a simpler backdrop they can build on going forward. And, with the "Beautiful Guarantee," this second try do-over didn't cost them a thing!

 
   

Basement Made Beautiful in Chatham

Too often our basements are treated as afterthoughts during our home decorating process. But, in fact, these below-grade areas can be inviting, integral spaces in our homes and in our family life. We're always afraid of water in the basement, so we feel we don't want to invest too much in this space. But with the right products, water can be far less of an issue, and can truly elevate that otherwise castoff room. Look what one Chatham homeowner did, installing waterproof vinyl flooring to look like wood. Would anyone call this beautiful space "just a basement?"

Even in small, compact kitchens you can have a backsplash that makes a statement. This tumbled marble backsplash that we did for a condo in Madison makes use of the space over the sink.



   

From Beige to Gray - An Update for a Chatham Colonial

As greys and greiges come more and more into home fashion, we're finding ourselves changing out the beiges of the 2000's and welcoming these cool, modern colors.

 
   

An Elegant Staircase in Madison

When Marilyn wanted to add a more modern finish to her newly built center hall home in Madison, we took a traditional approach with a custom fabricated runner, but with a more transitional floral design. Her classic tones of white, ivory and beige get a modern lift with the gray-on-cream pattern as it comes down the staircase.

Because of her curved walls in the upper hall, we custom fabricated a runner to follow the form, maintaining the right amount of wood exposure, for a contiguous, cohesive design.

 
   

Keith's Master Bath, East Hanover

As part of his complete renovation project, Keith added this master bath with old world traditional touches. The ceramic floor tile was installed on the diagonal, adding width and volume to the space. We did the walls in a coordinating 12" x 18" porcelain tile, installed brick-jointed or "subway" style. We topped them with a double row of stone chair rail outlining a vintage-style vine listello. The chair rail carried into the shower, adding coordinated mosaics for the floor and granite for the seat tops.

An Upscale Basement Makeover for a Florham Park Colonial

This homeowner wanted an upscale entertainment room that didn't feel like a basement. In addition to the brick fireplace with bluestone hearth, he added bead board wainscoting and a moveable bar. We installed an exotic species of hardwood flooring for a modern, upscale aesthetic. The hardwood was prefinished for a quicker, more expedient installation. We floated the hardwood over a moisture barrier to protect it from any dampness coming from the concrete slab. A little insulating underlayment gave the space the added warmth and comfort needed to forget that you were in a basement.



 
 

A traditional Approach for Mrs. P.'s Split in Florham Park

Split level houses are really best suited for wall-to-wall carpet. But, with today's trend to hardwood floors, everyone is ripping out the carpet and refinishing the wood. Then, the next question is how do we add area rugs to define and soften the spaces?

 
   

A Touch of Coastal Styling in Chatham

This carriage house in Chatham has hardwood floors throughout, and the homeowner wanted to keep that clean, classic look while adding a stair runner for safety. We custom fabricated this wool sisal stripe into a custom runner that complements the light and airy feeling of the house.


   

Formal and Sophisticated Foyer in Berkeley Heights

For this contemporary center hall in Berkeley Heights, the homeowner wanted to make a refined statement for visitors coming through the front door. They decided on this contemporary floral vine in taupe wool with viscose highlights. The viscose fibers add dimension and shimmer, much like silk would, with much higher durability.

Updated Ranch Kitchen in Morristown

When the homeowners of this 1950's ranch in Morristown, NJ decided their kitchen needed an update, they opted to change out their dated vinyl tile flooring in favor of a more fashion forward hardwood floor. 

Since the house is traditional, their choice of a wider plank with a subtle hand-scrape bridged the gap between a truly rustic scraped floor and the 2-1/4 standard oak that exists throughout the rest of the house. 

Getting away from oak altogether and using the less grainy species of sweet gum, allows the new floor to make a subtle statement that doesn't compete with the uba tuba counters or glazed cabinets. The room is not especially bright, so they chose a color with some golden hues that give the floor a brightness. The brown tones also bring out the chocolate glaze on the ivory cabinets.

The final result is a warm, rich floor that enhances this traditional kitchen with touches of modernity and style.
