DIY Home Gym Floor – The Home Depot Flooring A-Z


What’s under your feet (or however you get around) is as important as anything when it comes to home. That’s why this fall, we collaborated with The Home Depot on an A to Z guide that’ll give you the confidence to make flooring choices you’ll love. Check out the A to Z handbook here.


If you’ve ever accidentally roundhouse-kicked a floor lamp while following along with an exercise video or dropped a hand-weight on your kitchen tile, you know how difficult it is to work out at home without a designated space. When you’re ready to carve out space for your own home exercise room, installing the proper flooring is critical for both your physical health and the longevity of your freshly-created workout zone.

Lowe’s, ‘Shark Tank’ star Daymond John launch effort for small businesses

As many small businesses face challenges during the coronavirus pandemic, Lowe’s is giving them a shot to get their products on its store shelves and website.

Lowe’s CEO Marvin Ellison said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” that the home improvement retailer is teaming up with Daymond John, a star of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” to mentor entrepreneurs across diverse backgrounds, listen to their pitches and narrow the pool to standouts.

Lumber industry feeling toll of COVID-19 pandemic

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – The construction and lumber industry is seeing rising costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Doug Barr with Palumbo Lumber, prices are about 50 percent higher than last year.

Barr said as people are staying inside, home improvement projects have become a focus, so demand is high. A consumer specialist survey found 57 percent of homeowners made improvements this spring.

However, the product is low because mills and production were forced to shut down. He said the effect has trickled down, forcing some big projects to be put on hold.

Even though you don’t see it after installation, the quality of any tiling project rests on mortar, the thick cement and sand adhesive that secures tiles to a home’s subfloor, or substrate. Selecting the right mortar is paramount, especially if you’re planning to DIY a tile floor. You might not want a version that dries so fast you can’t get tiles secured in the right place, but you also don’t want a process that drags on so long that you’re quite literally watching the floor dry.

Fortunately, there’s a type of mortar out there for every
