Richmond Restaurants

One of the great things about living in Richmond is the way that the community comes together to support one another in challenging times. Local restaurants add so much life to Richmond neighborhoods, and are also among the businesses hardest hit by the coronavirus crisis due to restrictions on public gatherings. The good news is that there's still plenty you can do to support your favorite local businesses – from buying t-shirts to ordering takeout – and our real estate agents have all the details on how to Keep Calm and Nom Nom. The Keep Calm website was created by a Richmond ad agency, Familiar Creatures, to help area businesses during this time. We highlight some of our favorite Richmond dining staples and how you can support them below! 

  • The Fan
    Can't get enough of Richmond's historic architecture? The Fan neighborhood is loaded with historic homes, museums, and beautiful boulevards, conveniently located near Richmond homes for sale. There are restaurants here for every taste, from basement bars where you can dance the night away to quiet coffee shops perfect for escaping from a busy day. Right now, you can still pick up pizza and craft beer from The Hop, order something sweet from Red Eye Cookie Co., or grab one of the legendary sandwiches from Garnett's Cafe.

Laminate vs Hardwood Flooring

If you're getting ready to install new flooring, you'll be faced with a choice between laminate and hardwood. Though they may look similar, each of these two flooring options has its pros and cons. Our real estate agents have summarized a few key factors to help you decide which is best for your home.

  • Appearance and Aesthetics
    When it comes to aesthetics, the difference between laminate and hardwood flooring is glaringly obvious. Hardwood has a timeless appeal and tremendous texture variation of the wood grain. No two planks of hardwood flooring appear exactly alike. They can also take on different finishes and stains.

    When copying real wood, laminate flooring cannot look as genuine due to repeated patterns in the photographic layer. While the quality of synthetic materials continues to improve, repetition is unavoidable because it's impossible to replicate the uniqueness of authentic wood grains.
