Retail Flooring Ideas
It goes without saying that retail areas see heavy foot traffic daily. Not only that, but there are shopping trollies, wheelchairs, and baby strollers as well. For retail outlets in Brisbane, Gold Coast, or Sunshine Coast, using the right floor is crucial. In some cases, your floor can even make or break your business.
Consider this as an example. You’re looking for some stylish new clothes in a shopping mall. You see two stores selling clothing on opposite sides of each other. One business has beautiful flooring with colours matching the store branding. The company logo is also etched into the entryway, and the floor is glossy and reflective like glass.
The other store, conversely, has a chipped and dirty floor. There are scuff marks from shoes, dirt, and there’s no color coordination at all. The surface is dull in general and lacks any visual appeal. Which store would you prefer to visit? Maybe now you can see why selecting the right floor is so important! An appealing retail floor can do a lot for attracting customers.
So what is the ideal retail flooring? What challenges will your floor face on a daily basis? Let’s take a look so you can find out!
At My Floor, we offer elite-level flooring solutions that are perfect for retail stores. We also pride ourselves on educating our customers. The more that you know about how important choosing the right floor is, the more you will appreciate what we do. It’s a win-win situation for everybody, so let’s look at the top requirements for your retail floor:
Durability. A retail area is going to see constant foot traffic from workers and shoppers. There are also shopping carts, wheelchairs, and strollers, among others. Your floor will need to be able to put up with a lot of punishment. If shoppers should drop any items, high-velocity impact resistance is a plus. An ideal floor will be tough enough to withstand constant abuse without budging an inch.
Easy to clean. We’ve all seen dirty retail floors, and it’s always a turn-off for customers. Scuff marks, dust, dirt, and litter are all culprits here. Wouldn’t it be great if your floor didn’t let dust or dirt accumulate? That’s why you need one of our solutions from My Floor. We’ll provide you with a floor that’s very easy to keep looking pristine. Your cleaning staff will certainly appreciate this!
High visual appeal. Of course, you want your floor to look clean and appealing. Doing so will help attract customers into entering your store. A great tactic is to match the color of the floor with that of your business. Engraving your logo or brand into the entryway is also a nice touch. Glossy surfaces with aggregate exposure also look tasteful. Believe it or not, but your floor is a big part of your marketing! It’s essential to do it right with a floor that dazzles the eye.
Slip-resistance. Nobody likes facing a lawsuit due to a fall. While retail stores often don’t deal with liquids, they could still come into play. For example, what if a customer brings a bottle of water into your store and then spills it? If your floor isn’t slip-resistant, someone could fall and get seriously injured. To avoid this fiasco, you need to select a non-slip flooring solution from us!
Okay, so now you know what goes into the perfect retail floor. Now let’s look at our top retail flooring solutions from My Foor! If you’re looking for retail flooring in Brisbane, Gold Coast, or Sunshine Coast, we’re your #1 option!
Terrazzo is an incredible choice for the entryway of your retail store. At My Floor, we excel in polishing terrazzo to perfection. You’ll enjoy a non-porous, seamless surface that’s durable and easy to clean. Not only that, but terrazzo is perfect for embedding your logo or branded image. It comes in a wide variety of colors and styles as well. You won’t have any trouble color coordinating your terrazzo entryway with your storefront! What’s not to love about that? The main benefits of terrazzo for retail floors are:
- Low maintenance and low cost
- Very easy to keep clean
- Truly unlimited color palette
- Tons of engraving and design options
- Environmentally friendly
These are two of our most decorative epoxy options. Epoxy is an extremely rigid compound. It’s made from resins and hardening agents. Epoxy is one of the most durable protective coatings on the face of the Earth. Traffic from customers and shopping carts won’t do any damage at all. It also has resistance to high-velocity impacts. For this reason, epoxy floors are great for the interior of your store.
Epoxy flake floors feature vinyl paint chips added into the mix. These chips are decorative, and you can customize the colour and shape. At My Floor, we’ve got a ton of colours for you to enjoy.
Metallic epoxy contains metallic pigments in the epoxy mix. These metallic pigments are quite dazzling. We can achieve all sorts of stunning patterns on the floor. These include swirls, clouds, and other designs. If you want to mesmerize your customers truly, metallic epoxy is a great choice! The main benefits of epoxy flooring include:
- Extreme toughness and impact resistance
- Easy to clean
- Reflective and decorative
- Many colour options
- Chemically resistant
Our mechanically polished concrete is very visually appealing. This is due to its reflectiveness and sheen. For this process, we polish the concrete itself instead of adding a topical coating. As a result, the floor is very durable, long-lasting, and beautiful. If you select a high-gloss finish, the foundation will resemble glass. MPC (mechanically polished concrete) is an exquisite look. If you want your store to reflect your high-end merchandise, MPC is a great choice. Here are its main benefits for retail floors:
- Very durable and impact resistant
- Effortless to clean
- Liquid and chemical resistance
- Lots of color options
- Highly reflective and decorative looking
- Will absorb heat during the day and release it at night to save on energy bills
- Will bounce back and amplify sources of ambient light saving on electricity
Finally, we have our fantastic polished concrete veneer flooring. You may have heard of dental veneers before. Well, our polished concrete works the same way. These veneers are thin layers of polished concrete that you can install over any floor. For example, if you want to replace your terrazzo entryway, a polished concrete veneer is the best way. PCV, easy to install for My Floor and they come with all the benefits of polished concrete. You can also fully customize what goes into the veneer since you don’t have to pour a concrete slab. Do you want aggregate exposure with stones of a particular colour? No problem! Would you like slip-resistance added to your veneers? We’d be happy to do so! The main benefits of veneers include:
- Tons of colors
- Gloss level
- Aggregate exposure
- Colour and design
- Easy to install over any surface
- Can install on multiple stories, not just the first floor
