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.
Family 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.
2. When hardwood is too expensive, laminate tends to be the next choice for the family room. Laminate shares similar properties to hardwood in terms of look and ease of use and it will last a heck of lot longer than carpet.
3. 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.
