A new cable TV home make-over show that highlights "unique or extreme design" will give prominent exposure to hardwood product from Mullican Flooring. The company said it supplied more than 1,000 square feet of its 2 1/4-inch solid oak saddle hardwood flooring for a house in Beltsville, Md. featured on the TLC show "Moving Up." The hour-long episode, titled "Calamityville Horror," is set to run on Saturday, April 9, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
"I was out of this world when I found out that Mullican was interested in donating flooring, because I knew it was a top-of-the-line hardwood flooring company," said homeowner Rebekka Popov. She added that Mullican representatives helped her choose flooring for the kitchen, living room, dining room and three bedrooms of the home.
Hosted by Trading Spaces designer Doug Wilson, "Moving Up" offers a slightly off beat take on home make-overs. The show follows families who have moved in to a new home and want to decorate in ways described as "unique or extreme." The title of the episode, "Calamityville Horror," is a spoof on the 1979 horror film "Amityville Horror" which was inspired by the true story of a Long Island, N.Y. house that was said to be haunted. A remake of the file is due out soon.
Mullican's involvement in "Moving Up" comes on the heels of the company's January introduction of engineered product available in a number of species and featured in 9/16-, 1/2- and 5/16-inch thicknesses and three- and five-inch widths. It is also offering 1/2-inch hand-sculpted engineered product available in five-inch widths of oak, hickory, maple and walnut. The company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, offers a complete line of unfinished solid flooring including clear, clear-quartered and select-quartered oaks, herringbone slats and specialty species such as ash, cherry, walnut, hickory, and hard maple.
Popov said the newly installed floors are a highlight of her new digs. "The hardwood floor has really made the home," she said. "Everyone who comes in is just in awe of the floor. You couldn't ask for a more perfect floor."
