We recently had some of our work immortalized by professional photographer, Chad Jackson. See what you think:
Interior Surface was privileged to be a part of an amazing project that brought athletes, designers, and builders together to create a fun space for families of children in hospital care and let them have a little joy as they face difficult days. Tile Division Project Manager, Don Planinshek, organized and supervised the tile installation for the bathroom tile work (as shown below). According to Holly Buckendahl, the Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House, her staff expects to serve 6,000 families this next year in the new space.
Sporting KC sponsored the $100,000 renovation and decoration of three rooms at the house which caters to kids, tweens and adults with televisions, video game systems and Sporting-themed decorations.
“This room is full of positive energy and when you’re going through a sickness like that, you need positive energy,” Sporting KC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen said. “This room here is amazing and when I walked in here, I got a little boost of energy myself. It is a very happy room.”
The designer of the rooms, Jennifer Bertrand, who was the season three winner of HGTV’s “Design Star,” had a very special insight to what was needed for the space. Her son, Winston, who is 4 years old has already had 19 surgeries related to two malformations. Her family has received services from a branch of the Ronald McDonald House in New York close to where her son has been hospitalized.
“Our aim is to really provide a home away from home for families who need it in incredibly scary times of childhood illness,” Buckendahl said. “They have created a place that is an oasis for families in the basement that will make toddlers, teens and parents happy, and take them out of worrying for a little with what they face at the hospital.”

Interior Surface is very proud to work together with General Contractor Universal Construction Company on the new Joplin East Middle and Elementary Schools after the Catastrophic E5 Tornado Devastated the Joplin Missouri area on May 22nd , 2011.
Here is a “Sneak Peak” of the beautiful Interface “Walk The Plank” 9.84” X 39.37 ” carpet tile that is being installed with Interface “Viva Colores” “19.69” x 19.69” carpet tile to create a very visually striking “BOXED IN” pattern.
The concept of Bibliothek is to act as a resource for local Architects and Designers or members of the AEC Community, a place they can go to use the resources the library has to offer. In fact, they are the first of their kind – the “first open resource Finish & Material Library in Kansas City.” Vicki McGuire, with Interior Surface said, “There are shelves filled with flooring, textiles, tile, furniture, and other miscellaneous items a designer may need to choose for a project.” It’s a great resource for starting to work on a project.
What commercial flooring projects do you need help designing?
“A Bolon floor will stir your feelings – the design, colours and texture will excite surprise and trigger inspiration. Much is determined by the specific flooring but just as much depends on the vision of the architect or interior designer. . . Patterns can look completely different depending on the choice of colour, the architecture of the room and the fall of the light. The tiles are available in different shapes. Mix and match them as you will.” Bolon Studio
When first seeing the product, Janell Porter, with Interior Surface, said “This is another new, hot product that is going to take the architectural world by storm. Very unique and versatile patterns . . . really cool product. I haven’t seen anything like it.”
Their newest product lends itself to an even more modern feel allowing you to create various geometric shapes making for different types of 3-D type looks. As you can see from the illustrations below, the flooring sets itself apart from the others. This is only one style that Bolon has – there are many more styles to choose from.
