Hardwood Flooring is a Timeless Trend for Construction Projects in New York City

by Oct 5, 20210 comments

Hardwood flooring is timeless; its popularity in the New York City and surrounding NY, NJ and Philadelphia metro markets has only gotten stronger over time. It has been proven time and again to be the top choice for designers and architect in those areas as well. When it comes time to build or renovate larger construction projects, hardwood flooring is still the preferred choice for luxury homeowners.


The Vision

Each project starts with the design team. The architects and interior designers are searching for a look and feel for certain rooms and amenity areas. When trying to ascertain a certain color, look and style, it is the mission of the flooring contractor to first provide samples for the design team to approve. Often custom samples of hardwood flooring are created and presented and will vary in tone, consistency, color, or finish coat. In certain instances, LVP (luxury vinyl plank) flooring samples can be viewed and selected for areas with higher traffic, or in areas that need an extra level of water resistance.

One of the main advantages of hardwood is its ability to age; the older wood gets, the more character and personality it takes on. Designers are always trying to find new innovative ways to ascertain a certain color or look. It is the mission of the flooring company to deliver on the vision created by the designer. As the designers set the trends, the look, feel and style of the wood becomes critical to the overall look of the space.

The attention to detail is set into motion at the beginning of a project and follows through installation, including controls on stain application and finish coats. Floor remediation (floor leveling) is required to eliminate dips and sags in the concrete. It is important to hire the right company who can provide the right products and understands the installation process to ensure the flooring will last for many years. And in many luxury lifestyle buildings throughout the New York Metro area, we often see designers integrating the flooring throughout the entire building, which includes common spaces, amenity areas, residences and specialty spaces.
