MADISON, WI (May 24, 2022) – FLOOR360, provider of high-fashion flooring and designs announced that Common Threads in Madison, WI will receive the 2022 Design for a Difference Makeover free of charge. An all-volunteer group of interior designers will work with a group of local businesses, suppliers, installers, painters, and other volunteers to plan and provide a much-needed interior design makeover for Common Threads, 1717 N. Stoughton Road Madison, WI.

“We selected Common Threads to receive a makeover because it was clear that new design and finishings are needed for the children and therapists who use the space,” said Ryan Koechel, President of FLOOR360, “I’m confident we can deliver the wish list of items necessary to execute the makeover with generous support from the Madison interior design and business communities.”

FLOOR360 collected nominations for the 2022 Design for a Difference Makeover from March through May of 2022. The Design for a Difference Madison selection committee met and reviewed all the nominations then performed site visits to see a select few in person. FLOOR360 representatives gave the news to Kate Poppe, Executive Director of Common Threads that her organization was the recipient of the makeover on May 24, 2022.

“We’re looking forward to having a new space that will meet the needs of our therapeutic team and neurodivergent individuals we serve,” states Kate Poppe, Executive Director of Common Threads, “A makeover will definitely have a positive impact on the kids and allow families to feel even better about trusting their children with us.”

There are four phases in the 2022 Design for a Difference / Common Threads makeover process:

  • Planning – June
  • Designing – July through August
  • Procuring Elements – September
  • Installation – October

A variety of sponsors and volunteers have donated time, money and materials to make the Design for a Difference Madison makeover happen since 2015.
