Floors steal the show in NJ kitchen remodeling trends for 2014. Kitchen makeovers are one way to increase the value of a home as we discussed earlier, but the focus needs to be on functionality. Flooring gives you an opportunity to add extreme style to the mix and get something really distinctive for your home, while ensuring sturdiness to last for years ahead.
Bold Patterns are Key
Overall, kitchen remodeling in Bergen County, NJ is focusing on color to create dramatic flair. You can top off a balanced kitchen with a fancy floor with a pop of color to give everything just a little more punch. Patterned floors are in this year, and an experienced firm like Trade Mark Design & Build has access to some eye-catching products that enhance the kitchen color palette.
A kitchen with white walls and cabinetry for example, will really stand out with a white and black beveled cube design on the floor. Look for a pattern that creates depth using colors and lines to make the geometric designs stand out.
The Art of Illusion
The nice thing about vinyl flooring is the ability to create illusions with it. Vinyl is a common choice for kitchen floors because of its low cost and resilience. You don’t have to settle for boring just because you opt to save. Choose a pattern that imitates tumbled marble or hardwood. You get a nostalgic look that adds to the kitchen’s appeal without the expense of real wood flooring.
The focus of the International Ceramic Tile Fair in Spain this year was creating oxidized looks that give the appearance of stone, metal and wood for contemporary flooring, proving illusion as a design concept works.
Flooring designs are the style anchor for any room. Make your kitchen stand out with bold choices for 2014. Contact the Trade Mark Design team to see what flooring options we create for your home.
