Preparing Your Floors for the Winter Weather – Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Willowbrook, Carol Stream, LaGrange

Fall is already upon us, which means colder and wetter weather is just around the corner as we prepare for Winter! Not only do we have to start bundling up and protecting ourselves from the harsh weather, it’s time to do the same with your flooring!

When you think of fall and winter weather, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Rain? Snow? Both? Of course it is! And we all know that means there is going to be a lot of muddy and slushy shoes walking through our homes, which is a nightmare in itself for your flooring.

We all obviously have a million other things to worry about but just doing a few simple, routine tasks can help you prevent any wear and tear to your floors!

  • ALWAYS keep a mat or plastic tray by each entry way so that you can remove your shoes and not track the snow or rain on your shoes through your home.
    • When you have carpeting, the water will be absorbed into the carpet and any dirt will stain the carpeting as well
    • When you have hardwood flooring, ANY moisture is bad! The salt residue and dirt on your shoes can also scratch the wood.
    • Added moisture on tile, LVT, laminate flooring will make the floor very slippery and difficult to walk on without slipping and possibly falling
  • You should also keep a towel or mop near the entry ways so that you can be sure to wipe up any wet spots right away!
  • It’s recommended to do one good cleaning on your floors before the really harsh weather conditions hit so that you can continue with routine maintenance during the fall/winter months
  • When you have hardwood flooring, you have to consider the humidity level in your home. With not enough humidity in the air, you can get cupping and gaps in the hardwood flooring
  • Area Rugs are great additions for design appeal but also serve as added protection to your floors

Interior Decorating & the Colors of Fall – LaGrange, Western Springs, Carol Stream & Glen Ellyn


We know Fall is upon us once we see the leaves start changing colors and feel the crispness of the cool air. While each season is known for it’s own specific holidays, weather changes, types of activities, etc., there is no argument that Fall is simply beautiful with all of it’s amazing colors all around us that paint different pictures every where you look.

When you think of Fall, what comes to mind? Is it the colorful leaves, the falling of the leaves, or the warm comfort food cooking on the stove or in the crockpot? Could it be the yummy smell of homemade treats baking in the oven? Can you imagine the smiles on people’s faces when they are jumping in the piles of leaves in the yards? Do you get excited just thinking about Halloween, Thanksgiving or other times you gather with your family and friends? You may simply start thinking about hot cocoa and movies while cuddled next to the fire or under blankets. Whatever it is that comes to mind when you think of Fall, it’s a given that they are happy thoughts and a time to look forward to. Fall gives a sense of change all while allowing you to feel comfort and peace.

With such wonderful feelings associated with Fall, it would be silly to not consider using the colors of Fall to transform your home’s interior. Bring those feelings into your home! It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to change every aspect of your decor, just add a few things here and there. You can choose to change the flooring completely and go with an earthtone or somewhat neutral color or you can even add an Area Rug to be a design piece in your room! Even if you’re not willing to change up your flooring just yet, how about considering changing the color of the paint on your walls or adding an accent wall? You can also do simpler things, such as incorporating throw pillows or decorative items that show the colors of Fall or bring the sense of Fall into your home.

Whatever you decide to do, make it yours! Your home should be a reflection of those that occupy it and not necessarily have to show off the newest and latest trends. A happy home is one that you love to be in and share with one another.

November’s Designer of the Month – Interiors by Maribeth in LaGrange, IL

Whether you live in a house, condo, townhome, apartment, etc., you want to feel comfortable where you live. The space should feel like it is yours and should reflect your design and personality tastes. While this sounds great, it is not always easy to do and people often need help figuring out how to design their interior spaces. Not only does DeSitter have a large variety of flooring products to choose from, as well as the best installers around to install it, we also have sales people who are great with designing rooms and we have business relationships with some of the best interior designers too!

Each month, DeSitter takes time to recognize an interior designer that we’ve built a solid business relationship with and this month, it’s Maribeth Marinich from Interiors by Maribeth in LaGrange!

A personal message from Maribeth Marinich:


Congratulations! You are thinking about updating your flooring from subtle to statement! As you know, choosing the right flooring may be a bit overwhelming when designing your new space. Using a designer will take the stress right off your shoulders. They will help you determine what factors you should look for when picking out perfect material, color, texture, and style for your space. 

When working with the existing décor, a designer will help determine whether your room needs a splash of color, a contrast of texture or the addition of a print. DeSitter offers a wide variety of high quality options in each of these categories.

Many questions arise when choosing new wood flooring- what tone and size planking would you like? Do you want an inlaid pattern on the floor or just a classic installation? A designer will help you choose the correct wood flooring with answering all your questions in mind. DeSitter offers a large variety of prefinished and finished planking to accomplish all your design needs.

DeSitter has many diverse vendors who offer pre-made rugs with a mixture of sizes. The use of a designer can help the selection of prints and colors that are appropriate for your room.

Whether you are remodeling a kitchen, bathroom or bar, tile selection can be an overwhelming experience. A knowledgeable designer will assist with picking the right material, pattern, function, and focal points needed for your space.

I have been transforming spaces and working with my clients on the most cost effective methods of space planning for over 30 years. I believe that no project is too big or too small. I prefer to work hand-in-hand with my clients to create a space that reflects their personality and style.
