If you have a showroom, then you no doubt want to create a warm, welcoming environment. The flooring that you choose plays a huge role in that effort.
But how do you know which flooring option is right for you and your showroom? Obviously this can depend on the type of showroom you operate. Is it a retail showroom? Do you have a showroom for your car dealership? Do you have some kind of sales showroom?
Different types of showrooms means there are some types of flooring you can consider and others that you should ignore.
So let’s get into the best types of flooring for showrooms starting with…
Hardwood is an option that many people are drawn to because of its organic look and natural beauty. Though this isn’t something you would want to install in a car dealership.
Hardwood floors are better for retail showrooms that really only have to deal with foot traffic from customers and employees.
If you are looking to create a sophisticated space, then this is a great option for you. Of course, there is some maintenance involved (cleaning, regular dusting and the occasional refinishing), but the payoff is a very attractive space that will definitely impress any visitor to your showroom.
This is the choice of many different types of showrooms like car dealerships.
Tiles are easy to clean and are easy to maintain, which is one reason why you’ll see them in showrooms with cars driving over them. Additionally, they are very durable and can stand up really well to foot traffic.
But tiles offer so much more than durability and easy maintenance. Tiles look great and come in many different designs. They offer showrooms and clean and pristine look that other flooring options cannot match.
If your primary concern with your showroom is that it makes people feel comfortable, then carpet is a good option for you.
This is great for sales showrooms and showrooms that display products.
Carpet stands up well to a lot of foot traffic and is comfortable to walk on. These are things that will help you create a more inviting environment for your customers. This will also help you establish a more comfortable space that will facilitate more conversation between your employees and your customers.
Laminate is a great choice for anyone that wants hardwood floors, but also realizes that hardwood floors may not be the most practical choice for their showroom.
Whether it is because of maintenance or durability, hardwood floors may not be the perfect fit for your showroom.
Well the good news is that you can still achieve that hardwood look with laminate flooring. On top of that, laminate floors are extremely durable and usually cost less than hardwood floors.
Furthermore, laminate floors are stain and moisture resistant, which means that these floors require very little maintenance. So you only have to worry about running your showroom and not the state of your floors.
