In April, the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) will celebrate the excitement of spring by kicking off the first annual National Floor Covering Month. The event is designed to educate consumers about the wide variety of fashionable floor coverings available and encourage them to "Look Down for a Change."

During April, retailers, distributors and manufacturers will be encouraged to work together to draw more attention to floor coverings as one of the primary considerations in any room remodeling project. To promote this effort, WFCA has signed Lauren Koslow, star of the NBC daytime drama "Days of Our Lives," to serve as National Floor Covering Month spokesperson.

On the show, Koslow plays Kate Roberts, a sly but very stylish fashion publicist. As spokesperson, Koslow will offer consumers fashionable floor covering tips - including how to update a room on a budget, how different types of flooring can accent a room, and what subtle updates can make a home spring-ready - and present the latest flooring styles for spring.
