Hello everyone! Welcome to the May issue of Tomorrow’s Flooring.


This month is yet another exciting one for us, and possibly you, as we have officially announced the winner and two fantastic runners up in our Tomorrow’s Flooring Product Awards 2012! Head straight over to page 16 to find out who you, the readers, voted to be your overall winners.


As well as all the excitement with our awards, we have also featured Wood & Laminate, where we were suitably impressed with Lawson’s job at an alpine-style bar in Liverpool, and American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) blew us away with their beautiful refurbishment of a conference centre in Italy.


Screeds, Resins & Coatings was next on the agenda, and is this month’s biggest section with Altro, CSC Screeding, RSL, Resdev and Flexidry all making an appearance. The last area we looked at was Safety Flooring & Floor Protection, with brilliant solutions and tips from the experts at Host Von Schrader, Milliken and Buckeye International.


Picking up from his last column, F. Ball & Co Ltd.’s resident technical expert, Stephen Boulton offers guidance on preparing contaminated subfloors and Jason Kelly, our very own Flooring PR expert, discusses how getting online can help your customers become your brand ambassadors.


Our Makeover of the Month was carried out by Wilton Carpets, who gave a modern feel to a rustic pub in the heart of Cheshire. As well as all that, we’ve got all the usual News, Products and an industry insider answering the Tomorrow’s Flooring 10 Questions.


As always, I really hope you take the time to sit back, read through, and really enjoy the issue. If you ever have any suggestions, please feel free to get in touch. We love hearing from you, and you can tweet us @TomoFlooring!
