Safety: You are responsible for what takes place on your commercial property. If you are negligent in the flooring you pick, you may be held liable. Look for flooring that has an anti-slip surface to help prevent slips or falls, even when wet.
Noticeable: The flooring is one of the first thing people notice when they step into your commercial space. Neurology studies have proven that it only takes a split seconds for an individual to form a first impression, so it only makes sense to choose flooring that makes a statement – well-thought-out, positive one. If you’re going to skimp on anything, make sure it’s not your flooring.
Brand Identity: Every brand has a story – yours included. Like your logo and other features of your brand identity, your choice in flooring gives you an opportunity to reinforce what your company represents, your values, and what you hope to accomplish. If you want your company’s identity to be powerful, go with flooring that gives off a strong air such as natural stone, dark wood planks, terra cotta porcelain tiles, or marble or granite tiles. For a sophisticated or luxurious atmosphere, plus carpet, lighter solid hardwood flooring, or large glazed porcelain tiles would achieve the task.
Cleanliness: Dirty, dingy floors are a turn-off. Keep your floor clean to show respect to your clients, employees, and anyone else who comes to your place. If your floors are dirty and you’re selling something, you can only imagine how your customers will feel about that. Consider the cleanability of flooring prior to purchasing it and stick with styles, colors, and materials you know you can keep spic and span.
