Shaw Floors provides style for makeover on ‘Designing Spaces’

Episode airs this morning

Flooring plays a critical part of any home’s functionality and décor. Tune in to see Shaw Floors on the popular home improvement show “Designing Spaces” airing on Lifetime TV today at 7:30 a.m. as the company donates flooring to the Taylor house for the program’s “Project Homeward Bound” series.

“Project Homeward Bound” chronicles the transformation of a dilapidated foreclosed-on house into a dream home for the Taylor family. Army Pvt. 1st Class Jeff Taylor was wounded in Iraq in a mortar attack. Since his return, he and his family have lived in a cramped mobile home facing daily struggles until “Designing Spaces” and its valued partners like Shaw — the world’s largest carpet manufacturer and leading flooring provider — teamed up to renovate the house.

Shaw Floors Design Center Manager Tracy Daves, who will be featured in the segment, was on hand at the Jacksonville, Fla., makeover site to discuss the various flooring products chosen for the project. Knowing that a balance of beauty and durability was a major consideration for the Taylor home given the family’s three children, Shaw donated the following flooring styles to the renovation: Cashmere II from the Caress by Shaw carpet collection; American Restoration from Shaw’s Epic engineered hardwood collection; and Resort Versailles Tile from Shaw’s Array resilient collection.

“On behalf of everyone at Shaw Floors, we’re honored to help a Purple Heart veteran and his family obtain the home of their dreams,” said Daves. “Pvt. 1st Class Taylor risked his life for our country, and we’re proud to know that our flooring is being used in the home of a true American hero.”

“We’re thrilled that Shaw Floors has been a huge part of this inspiring series. The company’s donation of carpeting and flooring throughout the Taylors’ home is appreciated, and we know the family will enjoy the style and durability offered by Shaw’s products for many years to come,” said Lysa Liemer, “Designing Spaces” on Lifetime executive vice president of programming and chief operating officer.
