HGTV is one of the most popular networks on television. The process of house hunting, flipping, remodeling and more, seems to really strike a chord with millions of people who want to make the most of their "castle."  Add my wife Sara and me to the list.

In early March we moved into a 1960s-built home that was overdue for some modernization. We knew some fresh paint and new flooring would go a long way toward putting our personal stamp on the place and fortunately, our tastes are very similar, which makes the process fun and mostly conflict-free.

There are so many options and choices that the process of picking the paint and floor material can be overwhelming. It helps to have some professional help and we chose Standard Paint & Flooring to get the ball rolling.
