Hardwood Flooring is quite popular these days. New Construction Homes today are featuring more Hardwood than ever before. Prices of these homes have included more upgrades than ever before. The flooring of choice in the main living areas is hardwood. They are easy to keep clean and are great for those that have allergies.

Popular flooring trends for Newburgh NY show that  many people  purchase this type of flooring even if not buying new home, but remodeling instead. Debbie explains some great reasons for making your choices of flooring.

Hardwood flooring family room westchester NYFamily Rooms are one of the most popular spots of the home in Westchester NY.  It seems that this is where the bulk of the "awake" time is spent and it's a room that is fun and where the family just hangs out.

Because this room gets heavy usage (and often it's a key place to eat snacks), the floors often need to be replaced here more often.

Here's what I'm seeing from a trend perspective in Westchester NY.

1.  Hardwood flooring is usually the preferred flooring choice for family rooms in Westchester NY.  It looks great, it's warm and inviting and it last longer.  I see so many families trading up from carpet to hardwood...because, the carpeting gets dirty and worn down pretty quickly.  Hardwood flooring, especially solid hardwood, will last for centuries.  It's easier to clean up and less costly to maintain (you can avoid carpet cleaning annually, too.

berber carpet for family room westchester NY3.  When the budget only allows for carpeting, then looped berbers are the 3rd choice.  These carpets tend to be on the less expensive side, but more importantly, they tend to hold up fairly well (compared to a solid cut carpet) and with the multiple colors, they tend to hide dirt more.  Nylons and nylon blends will hold up better vs.olefin and polyester, but they do tend to cost a bit more.

Janis - Thanks so much for the reblog.  Yes, for sure, hardwood in the main areas is in. I'm constantly adding it and/or removing carpet and refinishing it.  It's a huge asset.  Thanks again.

Styles vary in different areas of the country.  In the southwest most homes have either tile flooring through out or with carpet in the bedrooms.  We do see some hardwood flooring it's rare.  I agree wood is gorgeous!

John~~ Different parts of the country all have their own styles and beauty. The wood flooring has gone in cycles and is now such a popular feature here. I would imagine at some point it will change again.

Linda~~ I would imagine that your area does more tile? Thanks for stopping by.
