If you own a business, you know the effect a first impression can have, whether you’re a retail, medical, or service-based establishment. People are drawn to and enjoy being in a business that is clean, comfortable, and appealing to the eye. Flooring plays a big part in that aesthetic, but in addition to looking good, businesses experience a lot of traffic and need durable flooring.
Commercial flooring is often thought of as generic and bland. There hasn’t always been a wealth of options for durable flooring that could meet a business’s needs and be stylish. These days though, there are a lot more options as the flooring industry is revolutionizing flooring to be both durable and beautiful.
A go-to for commercial flooring is often carpet or carpet tiles. One of the many brands we offer is Mohawk’s ColorStrand SD which is equipped with colorfastness to sunlight, atmospheric contamination, and harsh cleaners. It’s also great against stains with its Protection Plus Soil and Stain Resistant Technology. ColorStrand is guaranteed not to wear more than 10% of its surface pile weight for the life of the carpet (it lasts!), and it’s also equipped with Weldlok Plus backing. Weldlock Plus is an advanced, high performance backing system designed to provide long-term carpet durability while delivering sustainable benefits. ColorStrand SD is also an easy, direct glue down or stretch in installation. To see more of the ColorStrand line, click here.
But, let’s not forget about hard surfaces! You can always go basic, but hard surface commercial flooring features many options in resilient sheet flooring and luxury vinyl tile. Resilient sheet flooring and luxury vinyl tile are both perfect for the commercial scene in durability, maintenance, and style. Hardwood and tile are beautiful but can have a hard time standing up to the high traffic needs of commercial areas; whereas resilient sheet flooring and luxury vinyl tile you give the best of both worlds. So many styles are available in wood and stone looks and even patterns. We are also proud to be able to offer a vinyl heat welding procedure, often used in medical areas such as labs and imaging rooms.
The appearance of your commercial area can bring in more business and make a better environment for your employees. With today's floors you don't have compromise style for durability. To see more of our commercial jobs and what we can do for you, click here.
Today we’ll begin a series of blogs in which we’ll explore a decor style or theme and offer ideas to help you achieve that look in your home. Let’s get started by looking at modern oriental design and how you can achieve this with Daltile flooring and wall tile.
Modern and oriental designs are often clean, simple, and streamlined. Oriental décor shares some of the characteristics of modern but is more intricate, encompassing elements of nature using wood and earthy colors. Combining these two looks makes a beautiful balance of intricate design and streamlined style.
Daltile offers several tile series that can transform your space into a modern oriental oasis using wood-look, fabric patterns, and mosaics. We’re going to focus on Kimona Silk linen-look tile, City Lights Mosaic tile, and Forest Park wood-look tile and showcase two different color scheme combinations from each series of tile to give you just a few examples of this oriental/modern look.
With either color scheme, Kimona Silk tile could be used to border the room, combined with the Forest Park wood-look tile throughout on the floor. Conversely, Kimona Silk creates a delicate, modern look when used as a floor tile and could be combined with Forest Park on the wall as a wood accent. Either combination lends itself to a traditional tea house feel. For a more delicate touch, reminiscent of nature and Oriental screens and decor, several of the designs in the City Lights mosaics series are ideal for an Asian-inspired backsplash or even a focal wall.
You can add to this look by using earthy neutrals for wall colors and decorations, adding little touches like decorative vases, candles, jars, paintings, sculptures, and plants. Blending colors of the walls, furniture, and accessories is key to creating balance in a room. Use natural colors found in natural elements such as stone, wood, and soil. Colors such as red, white, gold, brown, and black will give an oriental touch of elegant and exotic. Complete your look with curtains and pillowcases featuring oriental patterns.
