The Hottest Trends in Flooring

Floor Installation - Hot Flooring Trends

Hot new trends in flooring may surprise you, even in light of recent hardwood flooring news. Here at Keith Clay Floors we keep a close eye on the flooring industry trends around the nation; and since hardwoods took a beating with the latest rounds of chemicals violations from Chinese manufacturers, be aware that superior quality in hardwood flooring is still out there.

Qualified installers can ease your mind by making purchases that do meet current specifications and industry standards. Keith Clay has been in business for over 25 years to make sure you have quality flooring, superior flooring installation, and warranty's on the products you select from manufacturers.

Bearing that in mind lets talk about what is going on right now as far as Hot Trends In Flooring you may find interesting, especially if you will be considering a new flooring installation or refinishing project to maintain the integrity of your investment.

Freelance writer Mary Umberger has covered real estate and home-related products for serious publications from California to New York, and her perspective is well respected in the flooring industry. In one of her latest articles she reports on luxury vinyl, carpeting, and wood flooring installation and types.

"In the flooring world, carpeting is getting softer. Wood is getting more roughed-up. And vinyl is getting more luxurious" Mary says. Armstrong flooring in the remnants collections speak volumes to what is available for you to purchase for your home, commercial, and industrial settings in beautiful flooring products.

Another item of particular interest in the last 2 years is vinyl. According to Scott Humphrey, chief executive of the World Floor Covering Association, he believes that the vinyls in today's marketplace define an extraordinary photo technology that mimics just about any material so close, that you have to look twice to see that it's really vinyl. Where needed these new technology breakthroughs are a positive for the industry as a whole. Daycare centers, institutions, to mention a few can benefit greatly on the design perspective and maintain health standards from frequent cleanings.

Wood floor discussions talk about many current design choices like the open concept, and the great room which have united kitchens and family rooms into one large expansive space. Consistent flooring materials of all types is a big part of that design aesthetic, as well as endurance over the life of the floor. Making it beautiful and on budget has never been easier.

On another note, new considerations you may want to educate yourself about are current trends in light of new design options. Laminate versions of wood with cores of other elements, do provide great structural stability. More stability means less movement and it's a win win if a strict budget is required.

Preferences for floor installations in most hardwoods selections are leaning toward the use of darker stains, and a growing interest in gray tones. Using larger planks, using multiple-sized planks, and using exotic species like hickory, cherry, walnut are all new options for consideration in this years projects.

Be on the lookout for more wood floors that have been hand-scraped and hand-textured. It is very likely that most people in home or business setting will be willing to pay for a new floor, but they want it to look old. Keeping an eye on the integrity of your investment in any location is a welcome priority in today's diverse marketplace.

What about the Green flooring aspects? A growing segment of the market is continuing turn to reclaimed woods, which have been salvaged from older residential flooring and even from old barns. The look is beautiful, sturdy and distinctively antique in visibility. Properly treated, installed, and finished is all part of the process and certainly requires someone like Clay Floors to get it done right the first time you install.

Tile of all types is truly larger than life. T size of each Ceramic tile is getting bigger - literally. In today's markets, tile now comes in formats larger than the standard 12-by-12 inches. While there are many geographical preferences, you may even see tiles that look like hardwoods... The digital print world is going crazy like that, using these new techniques on laminate counter tops, vinyl tiles, and ceramic as well.

Choose Marble Restoration

Food For Thought

Replacement vs restoration is always an issue isn't it. Marble floor restoration, hardwood floor restoration, tile floor restoration, all have different considerations that may determine for you what is best for your location. Let's discuss marble floor restoration in Dallas right now. The ongoing price for marble restoration could come in on a bid at several times lower than entire floor, steps, counter-tops, and tiles replacement, depending on sub straight and location. Remember restoration is a big time saver. In commercial settings, work may be completed at night and will go a long way in not shutting down large areas in retail or commercial building settings.

Restoration on a marble floor means you can be seeing a smoother surface and beautiful shine, just like it was brand new. Grinding and polishing can be fixed over the entire surface on those deepest scratches or gaps. Using colored epoxy, especially designed for such works is always an option. You are asking yourself is it really possible. Let's explore here what may effect the answer to that question.
