We may not be interior designers, but we are flooring contractors and we know a thing or two to help you upgrade your commercial place. The type of flooring you choose can be of great importance in your business.

Let me tell you now, you don’t need the most durable flooring out there or the best commercial flooring for high traffic areas. What you need is floors that get the attention from potential customers and are functional enough. Find out what type of flooring better suits the business you own.

Why is tile the best flooring for a restaurant

To keep your kitchen up to code, flooring has to be a non-slip surface, safe in wet and greasy environments. Commercial kitchens are a busy place, having stain-resistant and easy to clean up flooring, saves time and money.

Either Glazed Ceramic tile or Porcelain tile flooring are the best commercial flooring for kitchen or any restaurant.

Porcelain tile is the most durable flooring out there, withstands scratches and high temperatures and simulates a clean and wipe space.

Glazed ceramic tile is an affordable alternative, its additional surface application, makes the tile better resistant to stains than unglazed ceramic tile does. Glazed Ceramic tile does not absorb water easily, hence water damage is kept at bay.

Why is carpet the best flooring for an office

You can choose according to your budget because in fact, any kind of looking can work for an office space. Commercial carpet is the common choice. Why? It has an attractive look, it is sound resistant, and it is the most comfortable flooring not just for walk in customers but 8 hrs shift employees.

Commercial carpet has durability. Carpet is designed to resist heavy foot traffic and requires low maintenance. In fact, commercial carpet can be cut, in such a way, that, in case the carpet gets damage, you don’t have to replace the room entirely only replace “carpet tiles”, which could be conveniently cheaper.

Why is Laminate the best flooring for an office

Laminate and Luxury Vinyl floors can perform efficiently in a reception area or lobby. They have a refine appearance that can mimic tile or look like wood (wood laminate floors being the most popular) plus they’re effortless to clean up.

Given the proper maintenance, Laminate floors can be a visually welcoming to your customers.

Why is Natural Stone the best flooring for a salon

If your goal is to impress the public, natural stone is the right way to go.

For example, places like banks, fancy stores, retail showrooms, beauty salons etc. where you may see marble, slate, or mosaic porcelain tiles.

Depending on its level of moisture, stone floors can be slippery, but some stone floors are brushed or clefted in order to provide extra traction for the feet. Stone flooring has such a strong presence, you cannot go wrong with natural stone.

Slate and granite are popular choices, as they are highly stain and water resistant while being incredibly easy to clean.

However, stone tile flooring is usually expensive. If this is an issue for you, consider tile flooring.

Tile flooring can be an affordable alternative. Mosaic porcelain tile for  example has a luxurious appearance and it is durable (it’s a win-win).

Your investment should be worth it. Try to harmonize the commercial floors with the interior concept you have in mind. There are a variety of colors and designs for any type of flooring.

Consult a flooring contractor for unique circumstances such as extreme weather, rooms exposed to chemicals, vehicle traffic areas, etc.

I hope this information helps you find the suitable flooring you’ve been looking for.
