Flooring on new construction allows for a blank canvas. East Coast Flooring & Interiors offers some flooring installer insights into trends to consider for your new residential flooring.
These trends bring style and function to any space:
Bamboo Flooring Installation
While technically a fast-growing grass, bamboo is just as hard, or harder, than most hardwoods when dried. Bamboo has been around for a long time, but we are just beginning to see an explosion in color and style. Newer products called strand-woven bamboo, a highly engineered product using the inner fibers, are twice as hard as traditional bamboo flooring. In addition to the common thin-banded styles consumers have purchased, bamboo is offered in wide-plank styles that mimic the look of classic hardwoods. As with all wood flooring, it’s best to keep bamboo out of moisture-prone rooms like kitchens and baths.
Reclaimed Wood Flooring Installation
New factory-finished hardwood flooring offers all the charm of reclaimed timber – right down to that timeless hand-hewn look – but without the high costs associated with true salvaged lumber. Factory-finished wood stands up to moisture fluctuations better than any wood flooring that is finished onsite.
Large-Format Tile Flooring Installation
Consumers are now able to purchase a wide variety of sizes, shapes, materials and patterns. Particularly trending these days are large-format tiles – tiles that come 24 x 24 and 36 x 36 – as opposed to the traditional 12 x 12 tiles. In addition to looking great, larger sizes mean more tile surface and less grout lines to clean. East Coast Flooring & Interiors cautions that large-format tiles are heavy, requiring a perfectly level substrate and a professional tile installer.
Cork Flooring Installation
Selected primarily for its amazing acoustic-insulating qualities, cork flooring installation adds a unique texture and look in a room. It is much more comfortable to walk on than traditional hardwood and tile. And thanks to new factory finishes, cork is far more durable than it was just a few decades prior and is available in a variety of colors. Be aware that it is susceptible to moisture damage and will fade when exposed to sunlight.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring Installation
Luxury vinyl is a new category of flooring that combines the high-end look of hardwood or stone with the durability of vinyl. Because it stands up to moisture, wood-look vinyl, also available as planks, is a natural fit in kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms. It’s also durable, easy to clean and comfortable to walk on.
Cut-Loop Carpet Flooring Installation
In the world of carpet, we are seeing more patterned carpets. By using a technique that combines both loops and cut loops, manufacturers can create a carpet with patterns that range from subtle to bold. Big improvements have been made in the design and manufacture of carpet pads, with high-quality dense rubber replacing the more commonplace loose fiber.
Hardwood Flooring Installation
Though not a new trend, hardwood is an option that always remains in style. With a broad range of choices – from domestic woods to imported ones – hardwood flooring has the advantage of being extremely versatile; it can work with furniture and décor that is contemporary, rustic or traditional. Since hardwood tends to be on the pricier side of options, it’s an optimal choice for adding value to your home and can also be a great selling point if your home is on the market.
