When you first establish a business, your main concerns are how to set up quickly with the lowest start-up costs possible. There are often areas where savings can be made in the short term, but which turn out to be major cost problems in the long term. Making the right decisions early can help to save time, money, and sometimes customers. Your floor covering are one decision that fit into this category.
The temptation is often to go cheap. Carpet or linoleum are common choices, however, in a busy retail environment, they will soon wear and require replacing. Replacing floor coverings is not always an easy task. You need to empty your retail space, have the old covering removed, then have the new coverings installed. You then need to return your stock to that retail space. That’s time, that’s money, and if you have to close that space for a day or two, perhaps lost business.
Retail ceramic tiles solve this problem. In fact, ceramic tiles may well outlive the business. Tiles designed for retail space are long wearing and require little in the way of maintenance, apart of course from regular cleaning. Tiles will certainly withstand traffic far better than carpet or linoleum, so that’s a cost savings to begin with. Tiles won’t rip, tear, stain or bubble the way carpet and linoleum do either.
If you’re looking for durable low maintenance flooring for your retail space, consider tiles. There is a wide range of retail tiles available through Éco Dépôt including ceramic tile, granite tile, slate tile, and porcelain tile. We can help you find the right tile for your retail space, advise you on how to have them laid, and on how to best maintain them. Tiles are not just hard wearing, they add character, charm and life to your retail space.
