Design for a Difference



This year, Milwaukee Magazine is partnering with FLOOR360 to make a difference in our city.

FLOOR360’s charitable program “Design for a Difference” is a community-driven movement that unites socially-conscious, design-driven flooring showrooms with interior designers and other businesses to make over much needed spaces at local charities.

This project extends goodwill to local charities who give back to our communities, provides an opportunity for local businesses to be recognized for their charitable contributions and demonstrates how design can positively impact living environments.

 In the past, FLOOR360 has expertly renovated spaces for The Rainbow Project, Centro Hispano, and East Madison Community Center. In honor of FLOOR360’s new Milwaukee location (12500 W. Silver Spring Dr.), the organization is renovating a Milwaukee charitable organization for the first time.

Interested in getting involved in this project? We’re looking for any person, business or organization that has the passion to make a difference, including design professionals such as interior designers, architects and design students. For more information, contact Kelly Kuehn, Kashou Design Studio Manager at FLOOR360 Milwaukee. 

The Milwaukee non-profit will be selected in June, with the planning and designing taking place over the summer and installation beginning in October. The publicity generated during the makeover process will benefit the people in need served by the selected non-profit as well as its staff and volunteers.
