Have you’ve heard an idiom ‘home sweet home’? I think everybody know about it. And we also know that the most crucial aspect to achieve the mentioned idiom is not the home interior, of course. But I think the home interior took the second place to help people feel ‘home sweet home’.
As an architect I always excited to talk about home interior or home improvements. And what I want to talk about right now is the Empire Today, the Illinois-based home improvement and home furnishing company, specializing in hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, ceramic flooring, window treatments, and Bath & Shower Liners. As mentioned by Wikipedia, the company was named the #1 Specialty Flooring Retailer in the U.S. that offering more than 50 major metropolitan areas both in the U.S. and Canada.
The company was founded in 1959 by Seymour Cohen and was a family-run business under its original name, Empire Carpet. Featuring the well-known “Empire Man” character since 1977, the company’s advertising jingle “800-588-2300, Em-pire!” make the company’s phone number become one of the ten most recognized phone numbers in America.
Regarding installation, the Empire Today provides next day installation on all products including Carpet, Hardwood, Laminate, Ceramic Flooring, Window Treatments as well as Bath and Shower Liners as mentioned above. And interestingly the company doesn’t have showroom in order to cut the improvements costs, so customers win. They believed that you don’t need to go to showroom to improve your home, what you need just making an appointment (it’s free) and then the professional Empire Today Representative will come to your home to show you samples and allow you to choose from various samples that suitable for your existing interior. After deciding your choice, the representative will measure and give you a fully installed price. If you agree with his/her cost estimation (it’s promised to be accurate), the installation could even be next day!
Regarding Carpet, the Empire Today offers wide range of style options including Frieze, Berbers, Loops, Wool, and Indoor Outdoor. All styles are available in various colors to choose from. The style of Hardwood Flooring includes traditional hardwoods and specialty hardwoods, the style of Laminate Flooring includes wood laminate and ceramic/slate laminate. But if you prefer ceramic flooring, wide variety of ceramic styles, patterns and sizes also available from Empire Today.
