When it comes to getting a good quality type of flooring such as F&B outlets, cafes and restaurants. These 4 main benefits must come into mind. First, the flooring must be able to withstand high level of impact from the walk in patrons. Second, it must have slip resistance level. Thirdly, it must be easy to maintain & lastly, it must appeal to the consumers for the different types of restaurants.
Here are the three recommended flooring option for restaurants and its individual benefits.
High end resilient flooring (HERF)
High end resilient flooring (HERF) is recently one of the most popular options for some restaurateurs. It gives the luxury look and feel of wood flooring, has high level of slip resistance and it is also very easy to clean and maintain. Due to its 100 percent waterproof feature, restaurant owners can rest assured when it comes to cleaning of the flooring. HERF comes with a lifetime warranty for residential areas and also a 10 year product warranty on all commercial areas. However, since as it requires little or zero maintenance, HERF is likely to withstand a much longer period on commercial areas as well.
Good quality laminate flooring
Laminate flooring's wide variety of designs and colours give your restaurant the space of creativity, thus making your restaurant unique to others. We would recommend restaurateurs to get good quality laminate flooring that can relatively last longer than its counterpart. Good quality ones have been tested and proven for various things such as slip resistance, impact resistance as well as formaldehyde emission levels. One thing, however, to take extra care of, is understand that all laminate flooring products are water resistant; so, in terms of cleaning the flooring, do it with dry mopping. The good properties of a good quality laminate flooring together with its being value for money, it is often another popular flooring option for the restaurants owners.
Engineered wood flooring
Engineered wood flooring is again another popular flooring option especially among the luxurious high end fine dining restaurants in Singapore. Furthermore, restaurant owners can own the luxury of real authentic wood floor without breaking their company's renovation budgets. The feel of engineered wood flooring is solid and as it can be sawn into longer and wider planks, engineered wood flooring will look more luxurious than real solid wood which usually comes in short thinner strips. On the other hand, investing on a good engineered wood flooring brand gives the restaurant owners more assurance due to its product warranty from the manufacturers and it is relatively more stable and firm on to the ground. In Singapore, tropical engineered wood flooring will be much recommended, (where the core layer of the product is usually a tropical hardwood such as hevea timber); this is because tropical engineered wood products tend to be more stable due to constant temperature and humidity change.
So what is the best flooring option for the restaurateur? Well, it is up to the owner to decide. Every type of flooring option has its strength and weaknesses. Most importantly, is to look at what kind of dining experience would you want to give to your patrons, follow your heart and then make the best decision on it!
