Hardwood Timber Flooring

For a touch of timeless elegance, luxury and sophistication in a commercial setting, hardwood timber floors are hard to pass up. Despite not being the cheapest on the market, well maintained hardwood timber floors will also outlast all other flooring options available. Environments where they work well include multi-purpose school halls, high end retail environments, product showrooms, restaurant floors, bars, homeware stores and many more.  A similar look (albeit less durable) can be achieved at a fraction of the cost with laminate flooring which is available in many different coloured timber finishes.

Resilient Flooring

Consists of manufactured materials and is typically linoleum and vinyl. This is a very popular choice for commercial kitchens, due to the fact that it is very easy to clean and resists moisture. Sheet vinyl also reduces grime, dirt and germs which can be trapped in any joints making it ideal to be used in medical and food service businesses including restaurant and café dining areas.

Commercial Grade Carpet

Carpet tiles are very easy to replace if one section is damaged or to mix and match different patterns and colours to create a personalised design. Choosing carpet tiles and a commercial grade carpet mean they are designed for high foot traffic and wear well.
