3 Tips For Selecting The Best Flooring For Your Commercial Kitchen
Businesses in all industries need high-quality flooring that is low maintenance, durable, and able to withstand heavy foot traffic. However, the need to get flooring that ticks all of these boxes and more is even more critical for a commercial kitchen. Choose the wrong flooring, and you could not only end up with an unattractive floor that needs replacing sooner rather than later, but you could also be putting the health and safety of your employees and customers at risk.
Fortunately, First Point Flooring can help you. We have a wide range of commercial non-slip vinyl flooring and other options available at affordable prices so that you can rest assured that not only does your flooring look great, but it will pass the test of time and keep everyone safe.
Here, we look at three tips to help you choose the perfect floor for your commercial kitchen.
Is Your Kitchen Open or Closed?
This is a pretty fundamental aspect to think about when choosing your flooring. If it is closed - the customers cannot see into it - then appearance may not be so high on your list of priorities. However, if it is open, where customers can see into it, you will need something that not only is dependable and safe but looks great too. First Point Flooring can help you choose the perfect commercial restaurant floor tile for either environment.
How Big Is Your Budget?
How much you have to spend on your commercial kitchen flooring will determine the materials and what you need to prioritise. For example, a smaller budget may mean that you need to prioritise safety and durability. On the other hand, if you have more money to spend, you can take other aspects into consideration, such as style. At First Point Flooring, there is a wide range of commercial kitchen flooring solutions for every budget, and affordability does not mean compromising on quality.
Is Your Flooring Safe?
It is vital that the flooring you choose is compatible with the surface it will be installed on. This is especially important in kitchens with uneven flooring. Even though it is possible to lay things like vinyl or ceramic on a concrete floor, a modest amount of preparation work is usually necessary. However, it is well worth the extra effort because the result is a flat surface, safe and comfortable to walk on that will last for much longer.
When at all feasible, choose slip-resistant materials, such as vinyl flooring. It will not only be safe but looks good and can put up with the high foot traffic that a commercial kitchen has.
