Our Expert Picks for Commercial Floor Tiles & Trends
Renovating your commercial space and looking for a stylish but functional floor? When it comes to commercial tile there are quite a lot of design options to choose from. Creating a space that is comfortable and impressionable to potential clients is vital in commercial design which is why we had our flooring experts come up with the top 5 flooring tile types for your commercial space.
Factors to consider:
When it comes to commercial tiles, durability is of the utmost importance. Tile flooring in a commercial space needs to be durable enough to withstand heavy wear and tear from high-traffic areas.
Slip resistance is also vital when choosing commercial tile for your space. Choosing a porcelain tile that has a high friction rate is important for safety.
While there are some commercial hardwood options available, all of our sales associates will guide you toward wood-look porcelain options. Wood-look tile combines the warmth and classic charm of real wood with durable low maintenance porcelain. These durable porcelain tiles are scratch and stain-resistant so your floors will look top-notch throughout the years.
Wood-look tile gives your commercial space a unique feel and is popular among restaurant & retail owners as it is an excellent design tool to reinforce a rustic industrial design that is still cozy.
The light wood look is also replicated in commercial porcelain tile to give your commercial space a light airy feel to it.
Accent Floor Tile
If it’s one thing we can get behind, it’s a design moment! Bold and dramatic accent tiles are a perfect pick-me-up to any commercial space. We are seeing this tile style primarily in hospitality & small business spaces.
Accent tile in a small business space creates a unique and authentic charm that simply can’t be replicated by anything other than tile.
This type of tile style dominates hospitality spaces as it breaks down different spaces and draws the eye in.
Marble- look tile
There’s nothing quite as classic and luxurious as a marble space but we also know marble isn’t always the most functional choice. If you are redoing your commercial space on a budget or need something with a little more durability than stone, stone-look porcelain is the perfect option for you.
Stone-look porcelain gives your space the luxurious look of marble with superior durability and a much more friendly price tag. Go for a lighter marble or a more moody dark marble look – porcelain tile can do it all!
Slate & Concrete Look Tile
Show off your business’s more edgy side with concrete and slate look tile. While this type of commercial tile has been around for quite some time we are seeing an influx of business owners leaning toward this type of tile.
Slate & concrete look tile modernizes a space and is impactful without distracting clients and customers. This tile is about pushing the envelope of design & challenging traditional commercial design. We suspect it will continue popping up in hospitality, service, and retail spaces.
Less is more sometimes when it comes to design. Another popular tile choice in commercial design or the simple tiles with no distinct pattern or heavy color variation to make it look like your floor is one smooth sheet of tile. This is a more traditional type of tile used in commercial design and it is popular because of its seamless appearance.
This particular tile style is popular among hospitality & commercial spaces with open floor plans. Its minimal appearance of grout lines and minimal color variations creates a cohesive environment.
