There are few things that can impact the look of retail stores in Hawaii more significantly than the floors. Drab, dingy floors can dramatically decrease the cosmetic appeal of the space and can make your retail store appear to be lower in quality overall. This can have a potentially negative impact on sales, as well as on the ability of your store to retain customers. Updating flooring from time to time is important, and there are several beautiful flooring options available for you to consider. At Pacific Floor Covering, we want to help Hawaii retail store owners make a thoughtful decision that is great for your budget and will add beauty and functionality to your store for years to come.
A Closer Look at the Flooring Options
While there are many flooring options available, not all of them are suitable for use in retail stores. A commercial or retail environment typically must endure heavy foot traffic, and it often may be exposed to heavy equipment and fixtures as well. With this in mind, options like carpet and wood floors may not be suitable for these places, because these floors are more likely to show foot traffic patterns. Tile may be an option in some retail environments, but tile can crack and break when exposed to heavy weights. Before you decide to move forward with tile floors, consider how the flooring will be used in your store. Vinyl flooring is often a preferred choice for a retail store, and some vinyl is specifically made for a heavy-use retail environment. In addition, it is available in a wide range of colors and styles. So it is easy to make a great selection that improves your store’s appearance and décor when you choose Pacific Floor Covering as your Hawaii flooring installation company.
Floor Maintenance and Longevity
While the look of the flooring is important to consider before moving forward with Hawaii floor installation, floor maintenance and longevity also needs to be considered. For example, while tile may be one option to consider, it does have additional maintenance requirements. All flooring needs to be cleaned on a regular basis, but the grout in between tiles must be professionally cleaned periodically, in order to keep it looking great. This can be an in-depth and costly process to endure on a regular basis. In addition to maintenance, think about the longevity of the flooring. Stained concrete, for example, may need periodic maintenance to keep it looking great, but it has a very long lifespan. By focusing on maintenance and longevity, you can make decisions that are affordable for your budget.
The Cost of Beautiful New Floors
Before you make your decision about which type of flooring to install in your Hawaii store, explore the related costs. Vinyl is often popular for Hawaii floor installation, and this is because it is more affordable than tile. Stained concrete is also an affordable option with low installation costs in most cases. Tile may be the only other option that you are seriously considering for your retail space, and it does have a higher installation cost in most cases.
