Keeping up with flooring trends can be a time consuming hobby. Here at Floor Coverings International Central Westchester, we want to help you find the best style for your home at a price that’s right for you. Whether you want the look of luxury hardwood, the cozy feel of carpet, or a floor that makes a statement, we can find the perfect product for your Mamaroneck home. Here are our favorite styles of 2017!
Wide Plank Hardwood
If you are looking for a way to make your hardwood floors stand out without having to pick a bold grain or color, consider wide planks! Homeowners love this style because it doesn’t stray far from the traditional look. However, the new widths open up your space and showcase the beauty of hardwood with fewer seams between the boards.
Standard hardwood planks are about 2 ¾” wide but trendier planks are commonly seen at 5” or more. Some homes are even opting for mixed width hardwood floors for more visual appeal. Ask us about our recommended width size depending on the dimensions of your room, your budget, and the species of wood you want to use.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Exotic hardwood and natural stone tile bring a unique elegance to your home. However, these styles are usually more expensive and can be hard to care for. If you love the look but need more flexibility with budget and durability, ask us about luxury vinyl flooring (LVF).
LVF planks and tiles are as versatile and easy to maintain as traditional vinyl tiles, but can mimic any luxury style using high-resolution imaging. You can now get the elegant look of hardwood in areas such as the bathroom or below-grade rooms where moisture would damage solid hardwood. While it will still feel like vinyl underfoot, it is easier to maintain, less expensive, and gives you the aesthetic you want.
Patterned Area Rugs
Homeowners traditionally gravitate towards neutral colored carpets and classic low-pile styles. However, if you’re looking to bring more color and life into a room, patterned area rugs are the way to go! Bold patterns and bright colors make rooms more vivid and lively.
Area rugs give you all the benefit of carpet, without having to pay for a full reflooring project. Furthermore, if you don’t want to completely cover up your existing flooring, they come in endless shapes and sizes to fit your space. When it comes to area rugs, the bolder the better. Opt for an intricate pattern, bright color, or interesting texture.
This is just a small sample of some of the most popular trends we’ve seen this year. If you are starting a new flooring project or want a design consultation, give us a call!
