9. Ceramic/Porcelain Tiles

Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring has been in slight decline over the past two years, but it remains the most popular of all materials, specified by 83% of the survey participants this year — down from 93% in 2011. Natural stone tiles have also declined since 2011 dropping from 77% to 59% in 2012, and to 57% this year. However, they have been the second most popular type of flooring used since 2011.


10. Undermount sink

Undermounts are in slight decline this year, dropping from 94% in 2012 to 87%. But here again, they remain the most specified type of lavoratory sink — not just in the latest poll, but over the past 3 years. Integrated sink/tops have seen modest growth, increasing from 35% in 2012 to 41% currently.
