Customers can choose from alder, cherry, hickory, laminate, maple, oak, rustic alder, and thermofoil wood types. Customers can also choose from more than 20 different door style options.
We offer more than 30 custom finishes and glaze techniques. Customers can order anything from natural to premium finishes and we can also order elegant heirloom finishes upon request.
Our cabinet lines allow us to design layouts with several upgradeable options. We can upgrade the drawers to include features like dovetailed joints and self-closing mechanisms. Authentic or finished ends are also available; they provide a more decorative look to the sides of the cabinet. Cabinets can be ordered with custom features like glass, mullions, or peninsula doors. We can also upgrade the construction of some of our cabinets to have plywood ends or all plywood construction. Finally, we can upgrade some of the dimensions of cabinets to fit your area.
Our 3D design program allows us to show customers what their project will look like with different finishes, flooring materials, and more. This helps customers visualize their projects so they can make changes according to their individual tastes. The 3D design also helps to answer some common questions you may have.
Carpet fibers and how carpet is constructed affect its appearance, performance, and value. During its manufacture, fiber is converted into yarn, which is tufted or woven to form the pile (the surface you see and walk on). Carpet samples are labeled to identify fiber content. The two fiber classes are natural (wool) and manmade (Nylon, Olefin, Polyester). Each has different characteristics. Most carpet styles are made entirely from one fiber type like nylon, olefin, or polyester. Some styles may contain a blend of these fibers.
You should choose your type of carpet based on its look and feel.
The most common types of carpet are Saxony, plush, texture, cut-loop, level loop, multi-level loop, and frieze.
Each type of carpet is manufactured differently, allowing for a wide variety of options in texture, color, and style.
Certain types of carpeting are ideal for specific areas and applications.
Carpet usually comes in rolls that are 12 or 15 feet wide. It can also be seamed in rooms larger than 15 feet and sometimes the material is only available in 12 feet widths. Be sure to plan for material matching and seams when installing.
At CHDC we have many rolls of carpet, more than 100 carpet remnants, and several area rugs in stock. This helps us give customers a variety of items to choose so they can achieve a desirable look.
There are several types of materials that can be used for countertops. Some of the most popular countertop materials are granite, quartz, marble, laminate, and tile. The type of countertop you have installed in your home should be decided based on your plans for its use, stylistic goals, and budgetary needs.
We offer many different edge profiles for you to choose from depending on your countertop’s material, shape, and number of sides. Granite, quartz, laminate, and corian each have their own specific edge types for you to choose from when you order your countertop. With tile countertops, you can choose one of our Schluter Finish Profiles that makes a smooth transition from countertop to backsplash. We have samples of the edge options and finish profiles at our store.
A tastefully bookmatched backsplash can add tremendous value to your kitchen, making your countertop a conversation piece for friends and family. When we choose a slab for a stone backsplashed countertop, we carefully inspect the stone’s grain before cutting it at a carefully selected spot to ensure the grain flows well where the two edges meet. Laminate and tile backsplashes are also available and they can be built on or adhered to the countertop.
With solid hardwood, each plank is made from a solid piece of wood. Solid hardwood can be nailed, stapled, or glued depending on manufacturer’s recommendations. Be sure to read the specifications before purchasing. Solid Hardwood cannot be installed below grade in basements or over radiant floor heating and concrete. These areas are better suited for other types of hardwood.
Unlike laminate, which mimics the look of wood, engineered hardwood floors are composed of several layers of wood to form planks. This flooring can also be nailed, glued, stapled, or floated depending on manufacturer's recommendations. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered wood can be installed over radiant, in-floor heat.
Laminate is available in many different wood looks with everything from handscraped hickory to glossy cherry.
Want the look of tile? No problem! We have laminate available in tile patterns!
Laminate is an engineered wood product that was invented in 1977, designed to simulate the look of wood. Since then, it has evolved to not only simulate wood, but also tile. Laminate is easy to install because it comes in tongue-and-groove planks and clicks together without the use of fasteners or binders like glue, staples, or nails. Like wood products, laminate is available in different lengths, widths, and thicknesses.
We offer several kinds of tile including, but not limited to ceramic, porcelain, thru-body, glass, metal, stone, and marble.
The size of tile differs depending on its manufacturer, type, edges, and other variables. Many of the tiles we order are available in an array of sizes from 2"x2" mosaics to 12"x12" floor tile to 12"x24" floor tile.
The variance in size and shape of the tiles allows them to be set in unique patterns instead of straight or staggered settings. This allows us to create intricate designs that match the colors and shapes of a room’s existing fixtures.
We carry a number of Schluter Systems underlayment materials to be used with ceramic and porcelain tile. Some of these products take the place of cement board, providing a waterproofing, uncoupling membrane.
At CHDC, we commonly stock sheet vinyl. We recommend this type of flooring in bathrooms, kitchens, and other rooms that get a lot of traffic and moisture. While tile would be another option, we have found that vinyl can achieve the same look without having to mess with a tile saw, grout, and other setting materials.
