Karen Kaiser Sharp owns a local shop in the community called Madison Avenue. Although the store is spaciously filled with inventory, the decor could use some major work. It speaks for itself and not in a particularly good way. To start, Berkus and Brent decide to rip out its aged green carpet and replace it.
In replacing the floors, the dynamic duo starts by first fixing the subfloor due to previous water damage. After that, they added in new flooring for a more stylishly graceful look: vinyl flooring. Vinyl flooring is an excellent option because it’s affordable, easy to install (save money and do it yourself!), and it’s water resistant, according to Forbes. Vinyl is also versatile because it comes in a huge range of finishes. Berkus and Brent decide to go with a distressed wood-looking finish, which revives the shop with a new modern look. With new floors, a fresh coat of wall paint to light up the room, and upgraded furniture, the transforming renovation looks nothing like before.
