Blog Thinking about flooring options for your retail premises If you are considering how best to floor, or re-floor, your premises, you'll have a range of possible options to consider. Here's an interesting question to consider: how much attention do you want customers to actually pay to your floor? In some premises, the flooring will be a key element in creating the kind of overall ambience you want to produce. For example, a high end restaurant might opt for hardwood flooring, while accepting that the initial cost will be higher than some other options, and also that a greater degree of maintenance may be required. The same points can also apply to another high-effect flooring possibility, one where tiles might be the best style choice. In other premises, the flooring will simply be the surface customers walk over to look at all the other interesting stuff! Of course you'll still want it to look good, be easy to clean, and be a safe footfall environment. In such cases, rubber flooring or non-slip vinyl could be the best choice - especially in places where safety might be a key, and there may also be frequent spillages to be dealt with. These surfaces come in a vast array of possibilities, and can be neutral in appearance. They are also usefully quick to clean where high customer use, and perhaps heavy duty footwear to boot, means that muck, mud and mess needs to be easily and frequently dealt with. A final frequently considered option is the choice of carpet tiles, or even sheet carpeting. Again, this is higher maintenance, but can add much to the ambience. A good example might be a shoe shop, where much customer attention will be given (even if sub-consciously) to the flooring; or also in places where sound absorption qualities can help reduce noise levels where these are likely to irritate customers. Therefore, when making a choice of flooring for retail premises, the impression to be made, the practicalities of use, and the initial cost are all key decision drivers.
