FLOOR360 brings together interior designers and local businesses to provide a free makeover for local non-profit


MADISON, WI (April 30, 2019) – FLOOR360, provider of high-fashion flooring and designs announced that Wil Mar Neighborhood Center in Madison, WI will receive the 2019 Design for a Difference – Madison 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 Wil Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jenifer Street Madison, WI.

“We selected Wil Mar Neighborhood Center to receive a makeover because it was clear that design will have a real impact on the facility and the people served by it,” said Bob Tobe, CEO of FLOOR360, “With the generous participation of the Madison area design community and businesses, I’m confident we will deliver a result that will provide benefits that Wil Mar will enjoy for years to come.”

There are four phases in the 2019 Design for a Difference / Wil Mar Neighborhood Center makeover process:

  • Planning – April and May
  • Designing – June and July
  • Procuring Elements – July through September

A variety of sponsors and volunteers have donated time, money and materials to make the Design for a Difference Madison makeover happen each year since 2015. FLOOR360 coordinates the services of local interior designers and business partners to help a local non-profit make over their space so they can focus on their programs, services and mission. The numbers generated by these makeovers are impressive.   To date, cumulatively, there have been over 500 Madison volunteers and businesses involved, 1.2 million dollars in labor and materials donated, and over 25,000 individuals impacted.
