NEED FURNITURE TO TEMPORARILYSETUP YOUR NEW SPACE? WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW.

AND WE HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE BRAVELY SERVEDOUR COUNTRY.

GIVING THEM A HELPING HAND WHEN IT COMES TO NAVIGATING THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATIONLOAN PROCESS.

MUSICTODAY WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT VETERANS.

ALL AMERICANS OWE A GREAT DEAL OF GRATITUDETO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF WHO HAVE SACRIFICED FOR OUR COUNTRY.

AND THAT INCLUDES ALL THEWARS AND CONFLICTS WE FOUGHT TOGETHER AS A NATION.

BACK IN 1944 THE U.

S.

GOVERNMENT ESTABLISHEDTHE V.

A.

HOME LOAN.

BACK THEN IT WAS CALLED THE G.

I.

BILL.

IT WAS DESIGNED TO HELP RETURNINGWORLD WAR TWO VETERANS KEEP UP WITH THEIR CIVILIAN COUNTERPARTS WHEN IT CAME TO ESTABLISHINGLOANS AND GETTING CREDIT.

NOW, NEARLY 72 YEARS LATER, THE V.

A.

HOME LOAN IS STILL GOING STRONG.

BY SOME ESTIMATES SINCE WORLD WAR TWO IT'S BACKED MORE THAN 20 MILLION HOME LOANS.

FORSOME RETURNING VETERANS IT'S THE ONLY REALISTIC PATH TO HOME OWNERSHIP.

FOR SURE, THE V.

A.

HOME LOAN HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS AS THE GOVERNMENT'S ADAPTED TO OUR CHANGING ECONOMY.

BUT HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT TODAY? AND HOW EASY IS IT FOR RETURNING VETERANS TO ACTUALLY GETA V.

A.

LOAN? JOINING ME TODAY IS JOHN ALEXANDER.

JOHN IS THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF AFFINITY,LLC.

JOHN'S COMPANY, AFFINITY HAS CREATED A WEBSITE CALLED VALOANRANGER.

COM.

ALSO, JOININGUS IS CESAR SALGADO, CHEIF OPERATING OFFICER AND A VETERAN, AND SOMEONE WHO HAS USED THEV.

A.

HOME LOAN.

GENTLEMEN, THANK YOU SO MUCH, BOTH OF YOU FOR BEING HERE.

AND CESAR, I HAVETO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WELL, JOHN LET ME STARTWITH YOU.

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT VALOANRANGER.

COM.

VALOANRANGER.

COM IS A PLATFORM SPECIFICALLYDESIGNATED AND DESIGNED FOR VETERANS.

WE BELIEVE THAT IT'S VERY IMPORTANT AND CRITICAL THATTHERE BE A PLACE, A SAFE HAVEN, SO VETERANS CAN GO AND UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE LOAN PROCESSSO THAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY HAVE A GROUP OF BANKS AND LENDERS THAT THEY CAN WORK WITHTHAT ARE FOCUSED AND DEDICATED TO SERVING THEM.

AND WHERE THEY CAN ALSO SHOP ANONYMOUSLYAND BE ABLE TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT LOAN OPTIONS, DIFFERENT RATES, STRUCTURES AND PAYMENT STRUCTURESSO THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR THEM.

OFF CAMERA, YOU WERE TELLINGME THAT YOU ACTUALLY COME FROM A MILITARY FAMILY SO THIS WAS LIKE A LABOR OF LOVE FORYOU.

WASN'T IT? YOU KNOW, IT REALLY WAS.

I MEAN BOTH MY MOTHER AND FATHER SERVED.

I HAVE3 UNCLES THAT ALSO SERVED, RIGHT.

AND SO WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THEM AND HOW IMPORTANT THE G.

I.

BILL, AND ALSO THE V.

A.

LOAN PROGRAM HAS BEEN TO SO MANY VETERANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THISWAS SOMETHING THAT WAS IMPORTANT.

AND IT ALL CAME ABOUT BECAUSE OF AN ACTUAL MORTGAGE BANKER.

HE WAS A RETIRED COLONEL, AND HE SAID JOHN, YOU KNOW YOU BUILD THESE WEBSITES AND THESEPLATFORMS, WE NEED TO DO ONE FOR VETERANS.

CAUSE THERE'S ALOT OF VETERANS OUT THERE THERETHAT ARE BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND THEY'RE BEING BOMBARDED WITH SO MUCH ANNOYSAND INFORMATION THAT THEY REALLY SOMETIMES GET CONFUSED AND STRESSED OUT OVER WHAT THEYSHOULD DO.

RIGHT.

AND WE EVEN MADE THE LENDERS THAT WERE SELECTED, EACH ONE OF THEM HAVEBEEN HAND PICKED AND SELECTED BEYOND THE PLATFORM.

AND THEY'VE HAD TO AGREE TO A CODE OF CONDUCTTO BE ON THIS PLATFORM.

AND THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE VERY PROUD OF BECAUSE WEWANT THEM FOCUSED ON HELPING VETERANS.

NOW, JUST TO MAKE CLEAR, YOU'RE NOT THE LENDER.

NO, WE'RE NOT.

OK, THIS IS JUST THE PLATFORM YOU'RE KIND OF LIKE A MIDDLE MAN, RIGHT? ALOTOF PEOPLE SAY WE'RE THE SHERIFF.

OK, THERE YOU GO.

IN SOME RESPECTS IN THAT WE WANT TOMAKE SURE THAT WHEN A VETERAN COMES ON TO THE PLATFORM OR WHEN THEY'RE LOOKING TO GETA LOAN, THAT THEY'RE BEING BACKED AND THEY KNOW SOMEBODY'S GOT THEIR BACK.

AND SO WETRY TO CREATE THIS PLATFORM AS AN EDUCATIONAL SOURCE AND A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN FIND QUALIFIED,LICENSED, MORTGAGE PROFESSIONALS TO HELP THEM AND THAT HAVE THEIR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART.

SO CESAR, TELL US ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE IN THE MILITARY.

I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVEFOR 8 YEARS.

I WAS ABLE TO JOIN BACK IN 2002 AND I SERVED ONE TOUR IN IRAC.

BUT, IN DOINGSO, IT ALSO KIND OF SET US BACK A LITTLE BIT.

YEH.

AND SO THE V.

A.

LOAN WAS REALLY A WAYFOR US TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE BENEFITS THAT WE ALREADY HAD.

WE JUST DIDN'T KNOW THAT WEREAVAILABLE TO US.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND WE'RE ABLE TO GET LOAN WITH ZERO PERCENT DOWN.

AND WEHAD ALOT OF INDIVIDUALS THAT HELPED OUT AND IT WAS GREAT TO HAVE A GREAT REALTOR AS WELLAS A GREAT LENDER WHO KNEW THE INDUSTRY AND WHO WAS ABLE TO ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS.

ALOTOF TIMES THE LOAN OFFICERS THAT YOU'RE WORKING WITH, THEY'VE ACTUALLY BEEN IN THE MILITARYTHEMSELVES.

OK.

AND SO THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT THE VETERAN IS THINKING.

THEY UNDERSTAND WHATTHE VETERAN IS GOING THROUGH.

WHICH HELPS YOU? ABSOLUTELY, YES.

OK, NOW JOHN, WHAT ABOUTREFINANCING? SO WHETHER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR VERY FIRST HOME OR YOU'RE ALREADY INA LOAN AND YOU'RE TRYING TO REDUCE YOUR PAYMENTS OR REDUCE YOUR INTEREST RATE.

THIS PLATFORM,VALOANRANGER.

COM, IS A PERFECT PLACE TO GO.

OK.

IT'S A TOOL THAT'S BEEN PROVIDED TO VETERANSSO THAT THEY CAN GO ONLINE, SHOP IT, LOOK AT IT, AND THEN WHEN THEY'RE READY TO TALKTO A LENDER, THEY JUST CLICK THE BOX, SAY I WANT SOMEONE TO CALL ME AND THAT'S WHATHAPPENS.

WHAT ABOUT INFORMATION FOR V.

A.

BENEFITS? IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON V.

A.

BENEFITS AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU QUALIFY.

YEH.

COME TO OUR WEBSITE, PICK A LOAN OFFICER ORDIAL OUR 800 NUMBER, OUR TOLL FREE NUMBER, AND WE'LL GO AHEAD AND CONNECT YOU WITH ALICENSED MORTGAGE PROFESSIONAL AND THEY'LL WALK YOU THROUGH SO THAT YOU CAN DETERMINEWHERE YOUR BENEFITS ARE, WHAT YOU'RE ELIGIBLE FOR, AND THEY'LL BE THERE TO SUPPORT YOU.

JUST LIKE YOU'D SERVED US, THEY'RE THERE TO SERVE YOU.

AND YOU'RE NOT JUST A VETERAN BUTYOU'VE USED THIS SERVICE SO NOW I HEAR YOU'RE A LITTLE BIT MORE INVOLVED.

SO TELL US ABOUTTHAT.

YEH.

I'M THE CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER FOR AFFINITY PARTNERSHIPS.

NICE.

AND IN MYRESPONSIBILITIES WE GET TO REALLY POLICE THE LENDERS AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE DOING WHATTHE VETERANS ARE ASKING THEM TO DO.

WE MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE HAVING A VERY GOOD, POSITIVEEXPERIENCE.

AND WE ALSO SURVEY EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL THAT GOES TO THE WEBSITE AND SUBMITSA REQUEST TO SPEAK WITH A LENDER.

NOW YOU WERE ALSO TELLING ME ABOUT SOMETHING ELSETHAT YOU WERE DOING WITH YOUR DAUGHTER THAT I JUST LOVE THIS.

TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUTTHAT.

YES.

WE DECIDED AS A PART OF THE PROGRAM THAT WE WERE GOING TO COME UP AND CREATE AFOUNDATION.

AND SO WE'VE CREATED A FOUNDATION CALLED CANINE COMPANIONS FOR VETERANS.

THERE'SALOT OF VETERANS THAT COME BACK AND THEY'RE GOING THROUGH ALOT OF STRESS IN THEIR LIVESAND THEY FOUND THAT A CANINE COMPANION CAN REALLY BE A GREAT BENEFIT.

I TOTALLY AGREEWITH THAT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? HAVE YOU SEEN THAT TOO? ABSOLUTELY, ALOT OF PEOPLE JUSTNEED, THEY NEED SOMETHING THAT'S ALWAYS THERE FOR THEM.

RIGHT.

ALWAYS BE ABLE TO TAKE CAREOF THEM.

CANINE FULFILLS THAT.

AND YOU KNOW, THERE'S A GREAT DEMAND OUT THERE.

YEH.

FORTHESE KIND OF THINGS AND YOU KNOW WE WANT TO DO OUR PART.

RIGHT.

AND THAT'S WHAT THISPLATFORM IS ABOUT.

I LOVE IT.

AND THAT'S WHAT CANINE COMPANION'S FOR VETERANS IS ABOUT.

RIGHT.

IT'S GIVING BACK BECAUSE, LET'S FACE IT.

THAT'S WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING.

THAT'SWHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING.

YEH.

WELL, GENTLEMAN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

I REALLYAPPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE ANY PART OF THIS SEGMENT AGAIN.

JUSTGO TO OUR WEBSITE AT DESIGNINGSPACES.

TV AND THANKS FOR JOINING US TODAY.

WE'LL SEE YOUSOON.

BYE BYE.

MUSICA NEW JOB.

A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER CITY.

A SUDDEN TRANSITION CAN TAKE US BY SURPRISE SOMETIMES.

WHETHER SHORT TERM OR LONG TERM, ACROSS THE STATE OR ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

MOVING CAN PRESENTA WHOLE SET OF CHALLENGES.

FINDING A PLACE TO LIVE AND FURNISHING THAT NEW SPACE CANADD STRESS TO AN OTHERWISE EXCITING AND ALREADY STRESSFUL TIME IN OUR LIFE.

THAT'S THE POSITIONMARK ANDREWS FOUND HIMSELF IN WHEN HE GOT WORD THAT HE'D PACKING HIS BAGS AND MOVING3 STATES AWAY FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS TO OPEN A NEW BRANCH OFFICE FOR THE COMPANY HE WORKEDFOR.

I FOUND OUT THAT SOMEONE FROM OUR DEPARTMENT WOULD HAVE TO RELOCATE AND WE WOULDN'T KNOWUNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.

SO WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT IT WAS ME IT FORCED ME TO HAVE TO TRYTO FIND A PLACE LAST MINUTE AND SINCE IT WAS ONLY TEMPORARY, I DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE TO MOVEALL MY FURNITURE FROM ONE LOCATION TO THE OTHER.

ONLY TO HAVE TO RETURN IT 6 MONTHSLATER.

SO IT LEFT ME WITH NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO.

SO WHEN MARK STARTED TO SEARCH ONLINEAND CALLING AROUND TO FIND A PLACE TO LIVE, FORTUNATELY HE FOUND AN APARTMENT FAIRLY QUICKLY,AND THE LEASING AGENT RECOMMENDED THAT HE CONSIDER RENTING FURNITURE FOR HIS TEMPORARYLIVING SITUATION.

TO BE TOTALLY HONEST, I HAD NO IDEA THAT I CAN RENT AN APARTMENT ANDRENT THE FURNITURE AS WELL.

SO WHEN MY LEASING AGENT TOLD ME ABOUT CORT, IT SEEMED LIKE THEPERFECT SOLUTION.

MARK WAS ABLE TO GO INTO THE CORT SHOWROOM WHERE ONE OF THE CORT CONSULTANTSHELPED HIM PICK OUT THE FURNITURE HE WAS GOING TO NEED FOR EACH ROOM IN THE APARTMENT.

SOTHIS IS A TRANSITIONAL SETUP THAT WE HAVE HERE WHICH LENDS ITSELF REALLY WELL TO A CONTEMPORARYFEELING APARTMENT.

CORT HELPS INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES IN TRANSITION.

WE KNOW THAT RELOCATINGOR TAKING A TEMPORARY ASSIGNMENT CAN BE VERY STRESSFUL BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY MOVING PARTSIN THAT PROCESS.

AT CORT WE SIMPLIFY AND EXPEDITE THAT PROCESS SO THAT YOU CAN FEEL COMFORTABLEAND AT HOME AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, WHICH IS REALLY THE KEY TO ANY SUCCESSFUL RELOCATION.

OUR FURNITURE CAN BE DELIVERED PROFESSIONALLY AND SET UP IN AS LITTLE AS 48 HOURS.

SO THATYOU ARE READY TO START LIFE COMFORTABLY IN YOUR NEW LOCATION AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

AFTER MARK HAD SELECTED THE FURNITURE HE NEEDED, CORT MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO DELIVER IT ALL TOHIS APARTMENT AND SET IT ALL UP FOR HIM WITHOUT MARK EVEN HAVING TO BE THERE.

THE OVERALLEXPERIENCE WAS EXCELLENT.

MY COMPANY WANTED ME TO STAY WITHIN A BUDGET FOR THE FURNITUREAND CORT HELPED ME STAY WITHIN THAT BUDGET.

THEY DELIVERED ALL MY FURNITURE AND THEY SETIT ALL UP FOR ME.

THEY TOOK CARE OF ALL THE ACCESSORIES FOR MY BATHROOM, THE KITCHEN ANDEVEN MY BEDROOM.

I HAD COMFORTERS IN THERE, SHEETS, PILLOWS.

THEY TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING.

ALL I HAD TO DO WAS BRING MY CLOTHES, WALK INTO MY NEW HOME, AND I FELT AT HOME RIGHTAWAY.

IT TOOK ALL THE STRESS OUT OF MOVING AND I LITERALLY JUST HAD THAT ALL DONE WITHIN48 HOURS.

AT CORT, OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF TASTES AND NEEDS, AND WE'RE PROUDOF THE FACT THAT WE CAN ACCOMMODATE THOSE TASTES AND NEEDS WITH A VARIETY OF FURNITURE.

WE ALSO KNOW THAT THEY HAVE DIFFERENT BUDGETS AND WE OFFER PRODUCT THAT FALLS IN A WIDERANGE OF PRICE POINTS.

WE'RE PROUD OF THE FACT THAT WE OFFER BOTH AN ONLINE SHOPPINGEXPERIENCE, IF THAT'S YOUR PREFERENCE.

OR YOUR WELCOME TO COME INTO OUR SHOWROOMS ANDMEET ONE ON ONE WITH A RENTAL CONSULTANT WHO WILL HELP YOU DECIDE ON A CUSTOMIZED RENTALPACKAGE.

WHAT I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED WITH, WAS NOT ONLY THE STYLE OF FURNITURE BUT THEQUALITY AS WELL.

I WASN'T EXPECTING THAT FROM RENTAL FURNITURE FIRST OF ALL, SO CORT REALLYEXCEEDED BY EXPECTATIONS.

WE RECOGNIZE THAT STYLE IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO OUR CUSTOMERS.

AND WE'RE PROUD TO OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF FURNITURE THAT COVERS BOTH CONTEMPORARY AND MORE TRANSITIONALLOOKS.

WE ALSO HAVE OUR FURNITURE BUILT TO HIGHER MANUFACTURING SPECIFICATIONS SO THATIT STANDS THE TEST OF TIME.

WE'RE REALLY PROUD OF THE FACT THAT YOU CAN COME IN AND CHOOSEFURNITURE THAT REALLY SUITS YOUR STYLE AND NEEDS.

RENTING FURNITURE WAS THE PERFECT SOLUTIONOF MY SITUATION, AND I WAS REALLY HAPPY TO DISCOVER CORT.

IT SEEMS SOMETIMES THAT THEONLY THING THAT'S CONSTANT IN LIFE IS CHANGE.

WHEN THOSE TRANSITIONS DO HAPPEN IT'S GREATTO FIND THAT THERE ARE COMPANIES OUT THERE THAT UNDERSTAND HOW TO MAKE THOSE TRANSITIONSA LITTLE LESS STRESSFUL.

WHEN WE FIND THEM, WE'LL BRING THEM TO YOU HERE ON DESIGNINGSPACES.

MUSIC BETWEEN WORK, SCHOOL AND SPORTS, KIM, ELYAND THEIR 3 KIDS HAVE BUSY, ACTIVE LIVES.

SO WHEN THEY RELAX TOGETHER IT'S MOVIE TIME.

SPENDING QUALITY TIME IN THEIR LIVING ROOM INSPIRED THEM TO TACKLE A LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER.

AND DESIGNING SPACES WANTED TO FIND OUT WHY.

WE SPEND ALOT OF TIME IN THE LIVING ROOM SOWE JUST WANTED TO ADD A LITTLE MORE WARMTH TO THAT ROOM.

ADDING BEAUTY AND WARMTH TOANY ROOM IN YOUR HOME CAN BE A FORMIDABLE TASK.

BUT CREATING A BEAUTIFUL AND ATTRACTIVELIVING ENVIRONMENT THAT ACTUALLY MATCHES YOUR LIFESTYLE, WITH DOGS OR KIDS, IS EVEN MORECHALLENGING.

WE WANTED SOMETHING SOFTER.

WANTED THE REAL LOOK OF WOOD.

WE WANTED TO COMBINETHAT WITH CARPET SO CHANGE THE ROOM AND SEE IF WE COULD DO SOMETHING MORE WARM AND SOFTAND BEAUTIFUL.

AT DESIGNING SPACES WE LOVE TO HELP STEER HOMEOWNERS THROUGH THEIR EXCITING,YET DAUNTING JOURNEY OF PLANNING, IMPLEMENTING, AND LIVING THROUGH AN IN-HOUSE MAKEOVER.

TOADDRESS KIM'S FLOORING CONCERNS WE JOINED FORCES WITH INTERIOR DESIGNER, TRACY DAVES,TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT INTO CONTEMPORARY FLOOR OPTIONS.

CHANGING THE FLOORING HAS A MAJORIMPACT ON YOUR ROOM.

I LIKE TO CALL IT DESIGNING FROM THE GROUND UP.

FLOORING REALLY DOES CHANGETHE TONE AND THE FEEL OF THE ROOM.

AND WITH TODAYS ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES YOU HAVE SO MANYDIFFERENT STYLES TO CHOOSE FROM.

YOU CAN GET DIFFERENT FLOORING CATOGORIES, DIFFERENT STYLES,PATTERNS, COLORS OR TEXTURES.

SO IT REALLY IS POSSIBLE FOR YOUR FAMILY TO HAVE A BEAUTIFULFLOOR THAT'S ALSO FUNCTIONAL FOR THEIR NEEDS.

A COLOR MATCHING MOBILE FRIENDLY APP, CALLEDFLOOR VONNA MAKES IT EASY TO MATCH YOUR COLOR AND STYLE WITH THE PERFECT FLOORING.

THE ONLINEAPP MADE IT SO EASY FOR US TO MATCH COLORS FOR OUR ROOM.

IT WAS IT WAS SUPER USER FRIENDLY.

KIM DECIDED TO GO WITH DURABLE, RESILIENT, VINYL FLOORING THAT HAS THE REALISTIC LOOK,TEXTURE, AND STYLE OF NATURAL HARDWOOD.

LUXURY VINYL FLOORING IS VERY POPULAR, AND IT'S GROWINGAT AN INCREDIBLE RATE, AND FOR VERY GOOD REASON.

LUXURY VINYL FLOORING IS SUPER DURABLE BUTIT'S ALSO VERY RESILIENT.

IT'S WATERPROOF AND IT'S RESISTANT TO STAIN, AND IT'S RESISTANTTO MILDEW.

SO IT'S GREAT FOR WET AREAS, YOUR KITCHENS, YOUR BATH, YOUR LAUNDRY ROOMS, ANDYOUR BASEMENTS.

AND IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL IN HARDWOOD TONES OR IN TILE LOOKS, THAT ARESLEEK OR MODERN.

AND THE BEST THING IS IS IT'S AFFORDABLE.

WE DECIDED ON THIS BECAUSEIT WAS SO EASY TO CLEAN AND THIS WOULD BE A GREAT OPTION FOR US.

ESPECIALLY TO HAVEIT SO THAT IT WAS JUST EASY TO TAKE CARE OF.

SHAWS RESILIENT, LUXURY VINYL FLOORING HASTHE LOOK AND FEEL OF REAL HARDWOOD.

IT'S DURABLE AND WATERPROOF, EVEN AT THE SEAMS.

PLUS IT'SEASY TO INSTALL.

MUSICTHERE ARE MANY ADVANTAGES TO INSTALLING LUXURY VINYL FLOORING.

IT HAS PRECISION ENGINEEREDFOLD-IN LOCK-IN SYSTEM, WHICH MAKES INSTALLATION EASY.

AND IT CAN GO DIRECTLY OVER THE SUB-FLOOR.

IT'S SUPER FLEXIBLE SO IT HELPS TO CONCEAL ALL OF THOSE IMPERFECTIONS UNDERNEATH.

JUSTLIKE WITH CERAMIC TILE IT CAN GO OVER IT AND NOT SHOW THE TILE GROUT LINES.

AND IT TRANSITIONSSEAMLESSLY TO OTHER FLOORING PRODUCTS.

WE WERE A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT HOW THE FLOORINGWAS GOING TO TRANSITION INTO THE HALLWAY, BUT IT CAME OUT BEAUTIFUL.

JIM DECIDED TOGO WITH THE POPULAR TREND OF COMBINING THE NATURAL LOOK OF HARDWOOD FLOORING WITH A CUSTOMDESIGNED RUG.

WE LOVE THE LOOK OF THE CARPET, THE DESIGN, THE COLOR.

IT JUST ADDS SO MUCHWARMTH TO THE ROOM.

IT'S COZY.

WE REALLY LOVE IT.

PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING OUR CUSTOM CUT-A-RUGPROGRAM FOR THEIR HOMES.

COMBINING FLOORING WITH AREA RUGS IS A GREAT WAY TO ADD VERSATILITY,TO ADD STYLE, TO ADD WARMTH, AND TO ADD COMFORT.

IT REALLY ADDS A FOCUL POINT TO THE ROOM WHENYOU ADD A CUT-A-RUG AREA RUG.

YOU CAN CHOOSE COLORS AND STYLE AND PATTERN TO REALLY SETYOUR STYLE FOR THE RUG THAT YOU LIKE.

IT'S A WONDERFUL ADDITION BECAUSE IT'S AFFORDABLEAND IT'S AN EASY WAY TO CHANGE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF THE ROOM.

THE ENTIRE LIFE HAPPENSCARPET COLLECTION FROM SHAW STANDS UP TO KIDS, PETS, AND JUST ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE.

IT'S STAINRESISTANT AND HAS A WATERPROOF BACKING FOR EXTRA PROTECTION.

SPILLS ARE NO PROBLEM.

ANDTHERE ARE NO SURPRISES LEFT UNDER THE RUG.

IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.

I'M VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULT OF THE ROOM.
