Floor360, a Wisconsin-based provider of high-fashion flooring and designs, announced two local non-profits will receive 2022 Design for a Difference Makeovers free of charge: Common Threads in Madison, Wisconsin, which provides support to families with individuals with autism, mental health, and sensory differences; and Grand Avenue Club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which provides adults who have experienced mental illness with pre-vocational training, paid employment opportunities, supported education and special programming.
An all-volunteer group of interior designers in each city will work with a group of local businesses, suppliers, installers, painters, and other volunteers to plan and provide a much-needed interior design makeover for Common Threads and Grand Avenue Club.
“We selected Common Threads and Grand Avenue Club to receive makeovers because it was clear that new design and finishings are needed for everyone who uses the space,” said Ryan Koechel, president, Floor360, “I’m confident we can deliver the wish list of items necessary to execute the makeover with generous support from the Madison and Milwaukee interior design and business communities.”
Floor360 collected nominations for the 2022 Design for a Difference Makeover from March through May of 2022. The Design for a Difference selection committees met and reviewed all the nominations then performed site visits to see a select few in person. To date, cumulatively, there have been more than 500 Madison volunteers and businesses involved, over $2 million in labor and materials donated, and more than 40,000 individuals impacted.
A variety of sponsors and volunteers have donated time, money and materials to make the Design for a Difference makeovers happen since 2015. Floor360 coordinates the services of local interior designers and business partners to help a local non-profit make over their space so they can focus on their programs, services and mission.
