primera  blog

One of the very first things you notice when you walk into a kitchen is the countertops.  If they are glossy and perfect you can’t help but drag your fingertips over the finish; imagining the dinner parties and delicious meals the room and countertops will inspire.  Kitchens hold great weight for contractors and designers because they are the number one room that can win or lose the heart of a buyer.

1.  The thing to remember when designing and choosing kitchen countertops is that consumers want one thing above all else: uniqueness.  The kitchen must be functional, but not give off the feel of a-dime-a-dozen, focus on choosing colors and material for kitchen countertops that are unique.

2.  What are some of the choices you can make to create unique kitchen countertops that are guaranteed to stand out? After buyers select the countertop, whether the material is: granite, marble, limestone, or quartz, they can then customize the edge detail’s style and thickness.  Another distinct feature is creating island tops that look more like furniture pieces with pop outs and/or radius’s.  Customizing tile backsplashes, whether simple or complex, is also an area where creativity and uniqueness can be displayed.

3.  Some of the popular trends in the Phoenix market right now are in the contemporary realm.  Primera Interiors is seeing more quartz countertops being installed than ever, as well as marble and limestone.  These materials are popular because they give a clean look to a kitchen and support this increasingly popular modern look.

4.  As far as color goes, lighter colors seem to be more popular with Arizona home buyers; especially the colors white and cream.

Southwest flooring: a guide to flooring in arizona

primera-interiors-flooring


The challenge of installing new flooring in Arizona can be a unique experience. Humidity, temperature, and sun exposure are all variables that can have a dramatic impact on the quality and lifetime of your flooring. Here are a few important considerations that should be made before committing yourself to a new installation.

Style Decisions

Matching the new floor install to the trim and cabinets may be important to you or your client, but the ultimate style choice of the new install should be influenced by the three general characteristics of flooring: Type, Color, and Texture.

 

Type


Perhaps the most significant style decision that you’ll make before installing a new floor or replacing an existing one is the type of flooring that you’d like to use. In the dirty desert, using glazed ceramic tile instead of unglazed ceramic could make all the difference in the world when you consider how much dust and debris is found in Arizona! Left unconsidered, this seemingly minor difference could contribute to a regretful headache a few years down the road as you realize that some minor research could have potentially doubled the lifespan of your new tile work.
Granite is an attractive and durable material that is making a resurgence in the southwest flooring market as many Arizona contractors embrace the increasingly low cost of installing it.

Color


Once you’ve chosen a floor type, you may be somewhat limited by the amount of control you have over the color of your floor. After all, hardwood (usually) only comes in shades of brown! Although creamy maple and dark walnut tend to go great together, perhaps that’s just not your fancy. Why not let some of the alluring sample project photos on our resilient flooring page influence your color decision?

Texture


Like many other contractors and homebuilders in Arizona, you may have a bleak attitude about installing hardwood or other flooring types in a desert home, and you feel may feel that way for good reason. Perhaps you’ve had a dissatisfying experience with your hardwood scratching or warping after a particularly hot summer. The valley of the sun can take a toll on your new floor, but don’t be discouraged! The Southwest can enjoy wood flooring too.
Quick Tip: All types of wood come in varying degrees of hardness. Harder woods tend to fare better in the desert heat but that’s not always the case. Lucky for you, we’re here to answer all of your ‘Arizona Flooring’ questions.

Gathering Inspiration

After making some decisions about the type and style of the flooring that you’re going to install, it’s time to gather some inspiration from others! We recommend some of these inspirational sources:
1. Our portfolio gallery contains some stimulating imagery from past projects we’ve had the opportunity to work on.
2. Solicit your friends and family for advice.
3. Content aggregators online like Houzz and Pinterest let users upload their own content. A two-minute browsing session is sure to turn up a wealth of handy inspiration.
4. Follow your favorite industry leaders on Twitter and Facebook to see photos, gather tips, and keep up on recent news.
5. Subscribe to blogs from contractors that exhibit and explain their previous work

Research & Final Decisions

So you’ve narrowed it down to a few different choices, gathered some inspirational imagery, and you think you just about have your flooring choice figured out. There are just a couple of things worth considering before jumping into the installation process.

Health & Environmental Sustainability Considerations

Your ultimate choice of flooring is usually going to be influenced by your aesthetic preference to a certain look or your modest attempt to establish some visual consistency between the flooring and the cabinetry. Attempting to be environmentally responsible should also be a priority of yours and some types of flooring materials are undoubtedly more problematic than others.
“Vinyl presents a health hazard across its entire lifecycle, from production to installation to use and disposal,” says Marian Keeler, author of Fundamentals of Integrated Design for Sustainable Building, citing the correlation between vinyl plasticizers and asthma in young children.
This is one example of the various concerns that manifest themselves as you research the benefits and drawbacks of flooring that you’d like to install.

Follow the Trends

In the Southwest, residential architecture trends towards a stucco/adobe style; this is apparent in almost any neighborhood valley-wide and for good reason. Synthetic stucco brings with it many advantages including low maintenance requirements and impressive longevity. Similarly, some flooring materials are more commonly found throughout Arizona. In Phoenix, ceramic tile is popular for its easy maintenance, climate resistance, and cool aesthetic, hardwood flooring, always popular for its easy installation and maintenance, remains a trendy choice in the Southwest. Carpet goes in and out of style more frequently than other materials but will always be popular thanks to its easy installation and low cost.

Choosing a Provider

Installing new flooring can be an enormous project, consisting of an (oftentimes) rigorous research effort, in-depth analysis of your strategy, cataloguing your materials and ordering them, and taking time off work to complete the project before winter. Unless you plan on undertaking this massive responsibility yourself, you should find a local contractor to help you manage your flooring project.
In an ideal world, you’d have a competent contractor that manages a local and diverse product offering, capable of being your one stop shop for all of your contracting needs. Look no further, my friend. Primera Interiors is prepared to be that competent contractor, exceeding your expectations by providing you with everything you need to complete your project on-time and under-budget.
No need to thank us when all of your needs are met and your dream flooring is installed. Just make a casual recommendation to a neighbor, when they notice your beautiful new floor, and we’ll call it even.
