3 Top Tips for Retail Flooring


So, you’re looking for a new floor for your retail business but don’t know where to start. Don’t panic! The experts at KC Carpets, who boast 20 years of experience successfully installing quality floors for a range of happy clients, have revealed their top 3 tips for choosing the perfect retail flooring for your business.

1) Create a high-end look with real wood retail flooring

Nothing says luxury like a real wood floor, so if you’re looking for a high-end look and feel for your business, consider installing this versatile and stylish flooring material. Available in a wide range of materials, colours and finishes, from polished oak and maple to stained cedar and ash, real wood retail flooring can be chosen to perfectly match your brand and, as it’s incredibly hard-wearing, you can enjoy your elegant, real wood floor for many years to come. 

2) Choose a budget friendly retail floor

As an affordable, yet just as attractive, alternative to real wood, laminate flooring is a popular choice with our retail business customers. Made up of multiple layers of material, this brilliant type of retail flooring offers an attractive, long-lasting surface that can easily cope with the unique demands of a busy shopping environment. At KC Carpets, our range of laminate retail flooring is sourced from the renowned Quick Step brand and is up to ten times more scratch resistant than other manufacturers and offers additional stain resistance and sound insultation. 

3) Why not consider luxury vinyl tiles?

The best thing about luxury vinyl tiles for your retail floor, aside from being a highly durable, affordable and beautiful flooring solution, is that should a patch of floor become damaged, all you have to do to remedy the situation is to replace the individual tile instead of the entire floor. This can not only save you a huge amount of money, but it ensures your business stays fully operational as there’s no need to close your doors to accommodate a new floor installation. As an added bonus, luxury vinyl tiles are also super easy to keep clean and come in a huge array of colours, patterns and finishes.
