Philadelphia Commercial contributes to Florida special needs school

Home Press Release Philadelphia Commercial contributes to Florida special needs school

Dalton, Ga.—Philadelphia Commercial recently donated carpet tile, resilient flooring and wall tiles to renovate two rooms of the Neva King Cooper Educational Center in Homestead, Fla. The facility is a special needs school in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools system that offers programs designed to provide educational services for students with severe intellectual disabilities, ages 3 to 22.

Kalyn Rothaus, interior designer, host of “Office Spaces” and guest host of this special edition of “Designing Spaces,” oversaw the improvements and chose the Philadelphia Commercial products. For the school’s sensory room, a space designed to help calm anxious students and stimulate nonresponsive ones, Rothaus chose Philadelphia Commercial’s Cradle to Cradle Certified Multiplicity, a carpet tile she had installed in a patchwork design in various colors. “I picked this modular tile in a variety of colors to appeal to the students’ sense of sight and the softness of the tiles to their sense of touch,” she said.

For the home economics room, an area that includes kitchen appliances, a luxury vinyl plank style, In the Grain, was selected, as well as ceramic wall tile. “Luxury vinyl plank is a wonderful product for this area,” Rothaus says. “It’s resilient and waterproof, and I love the durability factor and the wood visual.” All of Philadelphia Commercial’s vinyl flooring products are FloorScore Certified.

The project will be featured on an upcoming episode of “Designing Spaces,” which will air on Oct. 27 and again on Nov. 3.
