Welcome to Floor Decor Design Center and to this blog, Michael's Floor Talk Blog.

This is where we share our passion for flooring, whether it's when you visit us in our Orange, Connecticut showroom, prefer that we come to you with our Shop@Home service, connect with you online or meet with you in Middletown, Connecticut at the Galleria Design Center.

Helping Orange and Middletown, Connecticut Homeowners Transform Their Floors

Floor Decor Design Center is a family-owned business that my daughter Janine and I run. We are passionate about helping homeowners in the Orange and Middletown, Connecticut areas transform their floors and their homes.

In fact, since 1998, we have been committed to doing so. From vision to design, execution to meticulous installation, we can transform your home room by room to a haven to be enjoyed by you and your family for years to come. 

Our goal is to make it easy for you from beginning to end. We count on the reviews customers like you leave to confirm that we've been successful and determine how to improve.

That success has allowed us to also help local businesses.

We care intensely about making sure that your finished project looks amazing, so we can hear how much you love the job we did.

From Floors, Back Splashes, Counter tops to Custom Design Area Rugs and More

To give you an idea of what to expect from a product and services perspective, here are our areas of specialty:

  • We sand and refinish hardwood flooring. 
  • We install pre-finished and site finished hardwood floors in all species.
  • Browse through our full selection of natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tile for floors, walls, and back splash installations.
  • You'll find granite, marble, and quartz counter tops for kitchens, wet bars, and baths.
  • In terms of carpet and custom rugs, you'll discover a full selection for all the areas of your home. This includes well-known brands such as Stainmaster, as well as Wool, Sisal, and other pet and kid friendly carpets to meet the needs of active families.
  • Look no further for eco-friendly Flooring Specialists in bamboo, cork, re-claimed hardwood, and linoleum.
  • Need waterproof flooring solutions? We carry Luxury Vinyl Plank and tile waterproof flooring for basement, laundry rooms, sunrooms, and any areas of the home where water or moisture is a concern.

What to Expect from Michael's Floor Talk Blog 

On this blog, we'll share with you our passion and knowledge for flooring and home design materials.  That includes advice on how to select flooring, how to care for it, before and after transformation stories, floor and home design trends and related topics.

We invite you to respond, add comments, make suggestions and even disagree - with one caveat:

Please keep comments relevant to the conversations taking place, maintain respect for all those involved and contribute value and depth to the discussion.

We will moderate comments and quickly remove (or not publish) any that are offensive, disrespectful or irrelevant. Please don't bother commenting to advertise or promote yourself; those are particularly tiresome.

One more observation, please don't post private information in this public forum. If you have comments that relate specifically to your own installation, rather than post them here, please contact us directly

Thank you for reading, visiting and being part of this conversation. Let us know about any flooring questions we can help you with.

I went to the store to purchase some materials. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They helped me locate the materials and pick what would work best for me. They were knowledgeable and informative. They answered questions and got me in and out quickly as I was in a bit of a hurry. The pricing was very fair. They had a wide selection of products which made it a great shopping experience.
