Attractive Retail Flooring Leaves A Lasting Impression

The right retail tile flooring can leave lasting impressionsReputation is an important factor when trying to build a business. This is particularly true in a retail environment where your customers are right there on your premises. Whilst product quality and service are important, your retail space should not be ignored.  When a customer leaves your business, what impression are they taking with them? Good product, good service, but a poor atmosphere. The latter is the last impression that a customer has as they leave.

Most retailers spend a lot of time and money dressing up their retail space. You should never underestimate the effect that an attractive floor has on customers. Retail floor tiles come in a wide range of colors and textures. Ceramic and porcelain have been popular choices for many retailers for a number of reasons. Cost is an important factor, and ceramic tiles are priced at the lower end of the market. Combine that with the ceramic tile’s longevity and low maintenance costs and you can see why it so attractive.

You are not restricted to ceramic floor tiles. Granite is another option that looks at home in a retail environment. Granite tiles are also available in a range of colors and textures, and they will generally fit in with any decor, even the modern trendy decors.

When considering retail flooring, consider how much traffic your retail space is going to receive, not just from customers but also from your own retail staff and the movement of stock (boxes and trolleys for example), and the movement of display units. Ceramic and granite will take a lot of punishment – punishment that softer options like timber, vinyl and linoleum would fail to handle.

Retail flooring needs to be scratch- and crack-resistant, easy to maintain and keep clean, and above all, flooring that adds to a business’s decor. The tile experts at Éco Dépôt can help you design your retail flooring to ensure you have the most appropriate floor tiles for your environment.
