New Kitchen Floor Choices: Is One Right for You?

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

By Barbara Pronin
Kitchen Floor Choices: Is One Right For You?The kitchen floor, besides being practical, has become a major design statement—with a bigger choice of colors, styles and textures available today than ever before.  So before you decide on a new kitchen floor for your Green Valley, AZ home, take a minute to read about the many options available. 

“You need to consider practicality first,” said Home and Garden TV’s Katie Allison Granju. “How much time do you spend in the kitchen? What’s most important to you?”

Granju offers a brief description of the newest flooring options to help you make the right decision:

Porcelain tile
—Porcelain tile is very durable, and is available in a wide range of colors, designs and prices. It is tough enough not to chip, crack or discolor under most circumstances – and more affordable than natural stone. Limestone, slate and travertine lend character to the room, but they are absorbent enough to stain to an extent and they tend to scratch more easily than porcelain.

Wood—Wood flooring is making a major comeback. Wood adds charm and comfort to the kitchen and is easily continued into adjacent rooms. Properly installed and maintained, wood floors are durable and easy to clean – especially if factory pre-treated with a polyurethane sealer, which eliminates the need for anything more than regular sweeping or mopping.

Cork—Soft, comfortable, and remarkably resistant, a cork floor “remembers” its shape, preventing furniture dents and scuffs. Dropped dishes and glasses Kitchen Floor Choices: Is One Right For You?probably won’t break on a cork floor – a bonus if you have small children – and cork is extremely water-resistant.

Brick—Brick flooring pavers come in many colors and textures, and they can be laid in interesting patterns. Like tile, they require some grout maintenance, but they are practically indestructible and offer a homey look reminiscent of the vintage farmhouse kitchen.

Rubber—Today’s manufacture rubber flooring is environmentally friendly, often made from recycled tires, and offers a dazzling array of colors. They are durable, easy to clean, and easily withstand busy kitchen traffic while offering busy cooks an easy-on-the-feet surface.

Canoa Ranch Dragoon Has All The I Wants: Virtual Tour

Real Estate sales in July 2014 continue to trail behind 2013 with 73 sales as compared to 89 in July 2013, a 18% drop.  Year to date (YTD) there have been 609 sales as compared to 774 for the same time period last year, a 21% decrease.

The slow sales are definitely having an impact on the "absorption rate" which has to do with demand.  It is the rate at which the market absorbs the inventory of homes that are for sale--in other words how fast are homebuyers buying the homes that are available.  In July the absorption rate was 11.08 YTD. According to the National Association of Realtors, a Seller's market occurs when there are less than 6 months of inventory on the market and a Buyer's market when there are more than 6 months of inventory on on the market.  In other words the greater Green Valley AZ real estate market is still very much a Buyer's market. 

If you are thinking about selling your Green Valley AZ home give me a call, I'd love to hang an Another SOLD By Judi in front of YOUR house.  With more than forty-five of my listings selling in 2013--and 40 are already under contract or sold in 2014, including 2 that were on the market less than a week--I'd love to make yours the next one.  My extremely successful marketing plan WORKS...let me prove it to you.
