If you think your restaurant floor’s tile won’t have an impact on your bottom line, then you don’t understand restaurant management. Your floor tile makes a big difference. Especially in the foyer or entranceway.
Your floor tile is going to be one of the first things that patrons notice. They’ll walk in the door and wait to be seated. If they show up at dinner rush, then they won’t have anything else to do but criticize your interior decor. Believe me, they’re looking.
If your tiles are cracked or broken and crooked or out of place, that will make a bad first impression.
Do yourself and your customers a favor. Replace your old, decaying, and falling apart floor tiles. When you do, choose a replacement tile that will fit in with the rest of your restaurant’s decor. You don’t want to create an incongruous atmosphere.
Any incongruity in your restaurant’s decor will leave your patrons feeling confused. They may not even notice what the problem is, but they’ll notice the problem.
For instance, if your theme is the future and your restaurant is decorated with rounded table corners and futuristic space design but you opt for a natural stone tile that harks back to the past, that will leave your customers feeling out of sync. They may not come back.
Your restaurant’s floor tile is very important. It will affect your bottom line, so give it some thought.
