throughout the design world.

Cork in the Kitchen

Cork flooring has seen a huge uptick in popularity in recent
years, and for good reason. Not only is cork gorgeous to look at, it’s also
incredibly great at insulation, making it ideal for costumers interested in
energy-efficiency. Most recently, we’ve seen a ton of clients looking to
install cork in their kitchens. Cork is naturally fire resistant, making it
ideal for the kitchen, and it is also resistant to the growth of mold and other
bacteria. Add to this the fact that cork tends to have a very long life and can
be easily repaired if damaged, and it’s easy to see why cork flooring is on the
rise.

Concrete Flooring

Beloved for its heavily-industrial look, concrete flooring
is making major inroads in contemporary home design. Concrete is certainly
popular for its design properties, but it also offers numerous other benefits
to the modern homeowner. For one, concrete is incredibly durable and easy to
maintain, making it ideal for clients looking to get lots of years out of their
flooring choice. Also, concrete flooring can be very eco-friendly if a concrete
subfloor already exists in your home, making it a great option for the modern
home.

Large Format Tile

In the world of tile, which has always been a popular
flooring choice, we’re seeing an explosion of sizes, shapes, materials and
patterns. One of the trendiest contemporary options is large format tiles –
tiles that come 12” x 24” and as high as 36” x 36” – which are a sophisticated
choice for most homes. Whereas tile flooring has traditionally come in much
smaller options, many home magazines are putting an emphasis on their larger
brethren. Floor Coverings International of Flagstaff has a number of different
sizes and shapes on offer, so you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking
for.

Natural Stone

Stone floors are natural, beautiful, and quite stylish. The
naturally cool, hard surface is ideal for warm climates as well, making this a
trend that makes a lot of sense for our customers in Flagstaff and Prescott. Be
it marble, limestone, or travertine, natural stone flooring is perfect for
high-traffic areas such as the kitchen or shared bathroom, and with natural
stone making a run at trendiest flooring option, it’s a perfect option for most
contemporary homes.
