Trends in Kitchen Floors for Westchester NY

Hardwood floors in kitchen Westchester county in styleKitchens are the heart of the home and remodeling kitchens is a hot ticket item for many homeowners in Westchester County. When you are remodeling your kitchen, there are a lot of considerations as you need to color coordinate floors, cabinets and countertops. On top of that, there are functionality considerations for the floor in terms of use, subfloor and cost. So, everything needs to be considered in the context of the whole room.


Below are the trends I’m seeing for kitchen floors in our area.


Kitchen Flooring trends in Westchester County

1. Hardwood Flooring - Yes, this is now the #1 surface we install in Westchester kitchens (followed by tile). Benefits of hardwood: 1) easier on feet, 2) more in style, 3) less expensive, easier to clean, 4) usually lasts longer and never goes out of style.

Tight grout lines are also in (and helps preserve grout life).  Often the rectangular shape will be used both on the floor and on the backsplash.


Cork flooring kitchen trends Westchester County3. Cork Flooring – Yes, this green flooring option is on the rise. It’s good for the environment and good for your feet. Cork flooring comes in a variety of colors and patterns…it’s really come a long way. Cork flooring material is generally more expensive vs. hardwood flooring, but often the installation costs are lower. If your floor is level, cork can often be installed directly on top of your existing floor.


4. Laminate over vinyl flooring – If you have to go fake and can’t afford the real stuff, laminate is strongly preferred over vinyl. Laminate has come such a long way and usually looks more upscale vs. vinyl. It usually looks like hardwood, so it also fits well stylistically. Plus, it uses recycled wood shavings so is a “greenish” product. It can often be less expensive to install vs. vinyl as it usually requires less floor prep.
