Some Exciting New Changes At Stone Wood!

As you've probably noticed, Stone Wood has been going through some major changes the past few weeks. We realized that offering beautiful flooring and home improvement products at low prices was great, many of our customers were also looking for expert design advice. That's why we've changed the focus of our business from outlet-style sales to professional design and high quality products. Say goodbye to Stone Wood Outlet - say hello to Stone Wood Design Center!

A Brand New Look
With a brand new name comes a brand new look. We've changed our logo, the color scheme of our website, and the look of our blog and social media accounts. We have a brand new Facebook page, a new Twitter handle (@Stone_Wood_DC), and a brand new website URL ( What do you think of our new look? Leave us a comment and let us know what you do or don't like.

More New Arrivals
We knew that if we were going to make the switch from outlet store to design center we would need a lot of beautiful new products to go along with our expert design advice. The new Stone Wood Design Center features the latest in contemporary tile, mosaics, and hardwood flooring products. We still offer all of our tried and true flooring, decking, cabinets, and countertop products, we simply have made a commitment to adding new and exciting products as often as we can.
