Primera is a designer’s best friend

Primera helps Southwest designers with all the interior home materials they need for their projects.

Primera works with a wide range of clientele. Whether you are a designer, builder or home owner, we have tailored systems that we have molded throughout the years to create benefits for you. If you are trying to remodel your home, design home interiors for several clients or if you are building a community, Primera has answers and expertise to share with you.

Some of the builders we have established relationships with over the year include: Blandford Homes, Keystone Homes and Shea Homes. Builders, designers and homeowners all find Primera to be the perfect fit for their home interior needs. Right now, we are going to take a look at 5 of the benefits that designers will get when they work with Primera Interiors.

1. One-for-all-and-all-for-one: When you are a professional designer, it is normal to be juggling numerous balls in the air at one time. Through our experience with working with designers, Primera has learned that one of the best ways we can support our designers is by being a one-stop-shop for them. When designers work with Primera, they will be working with one company that can supply all of the granite countertops, hardwood flooring, cabinetry, tile and hardware that the interior of a home needs. When you work with Primera, Primera is all you need. If you are a designer, you know how great it is to work with one instead of four different interior design companies; it simplifies and streamlines the entire process.

2. No calculators needed: Primera builds their mock ups right into their products. We build all of the extra costs into the prices that designers view, including installation costs, so there is no figuring or calculating needed, which simplifies everything. Primera knows that it is important for a designer to know immediately what they are going to be paying for each item, so we do the math for you.

3. Large buying power: Primera is a down-to-earth and local company, but we have a long reach. Our size helps us buy in bulk which saves us money and that is a savings that we pass down to our designers. We are established and have solid relationships with many of the builders, contractors and different designers in town that come to us again and again for our large selection and extensive inventory.

4. You will find what you’re looking for: Primera works in Nevada, Colorado and Arizona; in order to cover and supply the range of styles and materials designed in these different regions, Primera offers a vast selection of products. Our lovely showroom near Phoenix, Arizona is a great place for designers to go to see our products in person, instead of picking things out in a glossy catalog. Primera is a one-stop-shop, but just because we have our hand in every pot doesn’t mean that our selection suffers. You are sure to find interior products that satisfy even the most unique and particular project.

5. Streamlined process: When designers work with other interior design contractors they are going to be able to help you pick out and deliver you the raw material. The problem is, as all designers know, raw material isn’t what most homeowners want in their houses. Primera will fabricate, cut to size, and install of the products that you buy from us. We have a simple and streamlined process that enables everything to be done smoothly with no headaches. As a designer you can be as hands on as you want or take your hands off the wheel and let us take care of it for you, knowing that you are being steered by experienced hands. We are licensed, bonded and insured so we can take care of and do it all for you.

Primera appreciate and enjoys working with our designers; that is why we have created such a simple and inviting process for them. You do not need an appointment in order to take a look around our showroom so feel free to come in any time, and you are welcomed to bring in your clients as well. So many of the designers we work with come back to us again and again for their on-going projects, so we are able to continually improve our systems and keep repeating the things we are doing right. Contact Primera today if you have any specific questions you would like to ask, or pop into our showroom and say hello.

4 hardwood flooring tips for your phoenix home: the southwest can enjoy wood flooring too



Hardwood flooring is often equated to the older homes of the Midwest and the East Coast. Much of their structural design reflects a timeless, strong, resilient and traditional time period.

Here in the wild, wild Southwest our architecture is newer and more modern, usually portraying a ranch-style or adobe/stucco look, with geometric designs and clean lines.

Even though Arizona is one of the younger states in the union, we still reach for a little tradition every now and again. Our climate has always stretched builders and architects to think outside of the box as they try to create aesthetic appeal in a design that can also combat the heat, dust and low humidity of the desert.

Tile was, and still is, a very popular flooring choice for Phoenix and Scottsdale homeowners. But hardwood flooring has been springing up in more and more homes and is becoming a much more popular choice. Even though we live in the desert, we too can enjoy the beautiful sheen of hardwood flooring.

When installing hardwood floors in the dry, hot climates, here are 4 tips to keep in mind so that your investment will stay beautiful for many years to come.

1. Types of Wood – Wood does not all have the same destiny. Some are much softer than others and can get more easily damaged by dust and moisture. So talk to your installer about the right type of wood for your flooring and install a wood that isn’t too soft for your needs.

2. Proper Sealant – The 3 most important things to remember when you choose to install hardwood floor are, seal it, seal it, seal it. Hardwood floors, no matter what climate you are living in, need to be protected. Properly sealing your hardwood floors when they are new and periodically throughout the years is the most important thing you can do for a hardwood floor.

3. Humidity Issues“Yes, it might be 132° outside, but at least it’s a dry heat.” Everyone who spends any amount of time in Arizona is bound to hear a Phoenix or Scottsdale homeowner say that, it is how Phoenicians get through the summer. Our lack of humidity in Arizona might make June and July bearable, but it is very hard on our hardwood floors. Properly sealing your hardwood floors will help with this, but you might want to look into getting a humidifier for the rooms where the wood floor gets installed, to bring a little more moisture to the interior air.

4. Texture – This point is important for homeowner who own pets. Pet traffic can take a toll on hardwood floors but by choosing darker colors and a more rustic topical finish it can help to mask the little daily traffic marks.

There are few flooring choices that are as luxurious and alluring as hardwood floors. They are becoming more and more affordable and can be adapted to beautify the interiors of any home in any region. If you have your heart and mind set on hardwood floors, contact one of Primera Interiors’ design consultants who can help get you started and walk you through the process of installing beautiful wood flooring into your project or home.
