You Need to Ask These 5 Necessary Questions for Your Restaurant Flooring Needs

Here are some great takeaways from Lewis’s article to help focus your search:

  1. Am I Too Worried About Aesthetics to Appeal to the guests? A hardwood floor may be warm and look nice, but long-term maintenance might be a big feat and a big expense.
  2. Do I Have the Right Flooring Type for Each Zone In the Restaurant? Tiling may be the best option for the kitchen or bar, when vinyl or hardwood may be ideal for the dining room.
  3. Am I Considering the Safest Option? According to a study a few years ago by the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), around 3 million restaurant employees and more than 1 million restaurant guests were injured from slip and fall related injuries each year. This is a costly problem that can be resolved by picking the safest flooring option.
  4. Have I Thought About Durability and Cleanliness of the Floors? Are there high traffic areas? Does the kitchen or even the dining room get a beating sometimes? Tiles can be replaced, for example, whereas hardwood may be harder to repair and may require closing the restaurant.
  5. Have I Picked The Right Restaurant Flooring Installer? You don’t want to be stuck with the wrong type of restaurant flooring or have shoddy workmanship. FCI Cherry Hill won’t allow this to happen and are dedicated to quality work and excellent customer service!
