Houston Heights area homeowners are looking to stay on top of the latest trends when it comes to home design. With an abundance of materials, textures, and colors to choose from, it can be difficult to find the right combination to create the contemporary look you desire. Today, our experts at Floor Coverings International Houston Heights share 3 different flooring options that will help you achieve the modern look you desire.

White tile kitchen floor

Bright White Tile

Go bold with bright, white tile flooring in your kitchen. This chic design is sure to attract attention and make your kitchen the focal point you desire. Because tile comes in a variety of materials, shapes, and sizes, your creative possibilities are almost endless. Consider using large format tiles for an added sense of space and light, or take a modern twist on a classic design by using different patterns, such as herringbone or Lyon. If white is too bright for your taste, you can also achieve a similarly modern look by using off-white or light grey tiles.

Dark wood kitchen floor

Dark Wood

Nothing adds contrast to bright white cabinets and counters like dark stained wood flooring. Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular choices for homeowners, but when it comes to putting it in the kitchen, special attention must be given to protect the wood from moisture and high traffic. Fortunately there is a range of wood species and finishes that can be installed without issue. However, for that great wood look without the worry, consider engineered hardwood or luxury vinyl tile for your kitchen.

Concrete kitchen floor


For something different, consider concrete, which is arguably one of the most durable flooring options for your kitchen floor. Concrete is an increasingly popular choice for its contemporary aesthetic and ease of maintenance. Once poured, it can be stamped or textured, as well as stained, painted and polished. For some, concrete may be hard to stand on for extended periods of time, so we recommend adding mats and area rugs in busier areas.
