Flooring dramatically influences the style and character of a space, it's purpose is more or less to increase the functionality while its visual appeal can alter the unique elements of a design. Even with a turbulent year that we have witnessed which has caused an abrupt halt to major construction and renovative projects, pre-COVID-19 preferences amongst consumers for commercial flooring suggested a drastic change in the relevance of flooring designs and materials.
The need to manage high footfall and high-traffic areas in commercial spaces while ensuring that the maintenance costs are kept at a bare minimum is rapidly causing the growth in preference for polished/glazed flooring. These materials offer a viable alternative to traditional carpets and can be designed in a bespoke manner to fit the unique style of modern commercial spaces.
Porcelain Stone: One of the foremost requirements with commercial floorings is the minimal maintenance needs as it is not feasible to regularly suspend official operations to maintain the integrity and functionality of flooring. While natural stone offers a luxurious aesthetic appeal, they require a significant amount of care and maintenance causing some to shift away from the elegant stone options. Artificially produced materials which offer a similar appeal and texture to that of natural stones are expected to be the trendsetters in commercial flooring applications in the forthcoming future.
While flooring is an essential component of any design, the material should be determined post identifying the suitability and unique requirements of your space.
