The flooring used in the hospitality industry is one of the first ways to welcome and impress guests upon their arrival. The whole point of hospitality is to make people feel welcome, and this can be extended to all kinds of businesses including hotels, restaurants, and even cruise ships. Regardless of the establishment, hospitality focuses on customer care and service. By creating a space and atmosphere that encourages guests to feel comfortable and at ease, you can create a good reputation for yourself. Here are some floor tile trends that are popular for the hospitality industry in 2018.
Easy to Maintain Luxury Vinyl Tile
One of today’s popular choices for hotel flooring is luxury vinyl tile. This material is both practical and visually pleasing. It is easy to clean, durable, and resists stains, and it is available in a variety of colours and designs. Luxury vinyl tile is often inexpensive but can simulate the appearance of more expensive floorings like wood or marble. American Biltrite is one example of this versatile and beautiful tile.
Mid-Century Modern Porcelain Tile
Porcelain tile is another great option for hospitality flooring. It can combine the look of materials such as marble, wood, and stone, at a more affordable price. These stunning designs can be achieved without compromising the advantages of durability and easy maintenance. Abstract patterns inspired by nature are becoming more popular in tiling, and designs like Hydraulic and Encaustic bring a mid-century modern look your guests will love.
Aesthetic Wood-Look Floor Tile
For enterprises that cannot afford the higher prices of natural wood, there is wood-look tile that looks almost identical. This popular alternative is more reliable than natural wood. Wood-look tile provides good noise attenuation for a quieter environment, and is more durable and easier maintained. Wood-look tile like Berkshire and Etic also enable you to choose from a variety of patterns and colours. It still feels natural and genuine like untreated wood and creates a beautiful atmosphere with tradition and charm.
Durable and Eco-Friendly Rubber Flooring
American Biltrite rubber flooring is a terrific option for the hospitality industry. It is durable, resists scratches and damage, easy to clean, and eco-friendly. Quality rubber flooring is easy to install, and can look indistinguishable from wood flooring with its wood-look designs. Despite its affordability, you never compromise on quality. Our rubber flooring is versatile in both appearance and function, whether you want a sophisticated or casual look.
Easy to Install Broadloom Carpet
Broadloom carpet is woven on a very wide loom and provides considerable creative possibilities, whether you want rich traditional colours and patterns or expressive contemporary designs. This material provides a more insulated floor than a hard surface material, making it a great option for lobbies, waiting rooms, and hotel bedrooms.
Contemporary Look in Large Format Tiles
Large format tiles are elegant, classy, and timeless, and are versatile to be incorporated into a contemporary design. They come with a variety of benefits including the following: easy maintenance, elegance, expands the space, covers a large area, and versatile. Avenue and Marvel Gems are two options that work great!
