If you're planning to construct a new building for your restaurant, one important consideration is the type of flooring you'll choose. While you want something that will impress your customers and reflect your restaurant's decorating theme, you also want flooring that is easy to maintain. Stain resistance and ease of cleaning is important for a restaurant floor, and concrete flooring could be the best solution. It may take coordination between your builder, commercial concrete contractor, and interior designer to bring the floor to life, but a well-designed concrete floor could turn into one of the most attractive features in your building. Here's some information about this type of flooring.
Concrete Flooring Is Easy To Keep Clean
Concrete is one of the most durable flooring options available. It can be cleaned with a wet mop, sweeper, or broom. You don't need to baby it like you do with other flooring materials. Your employees can sweep or mop it during open hours when necessary to clean up tracked in mud, spills, and crumbs.
A cleaning service can maintain the luster with regular cleaning. Depending on the type of concrete floor you have installed, your floor may have a deep shine. This makes your building look clean and well-maintained even when you don't have to do much work to keep it that way.
Concrete Flooring Can Take Many Different Looks
You may be surprised at the ways a concrete contractor can finish this type of flooring. Let the contractor know your ideas and they can probably be implemented with concrete. If you're not sure what you want, let the contractor know what atmosphere you want to create for your restaurant and let the contractor present you with some great ideas.
One option is a solid floor color that is topped with urethane clear coat for flooring that has a deep shine that reflects the lights in your dining area. This option works well with dark colors, but a clear coat can also be applied over vinyl floor stickers, which might be fun if your restaurant has a sports theme. Another option is to create a custom artistic design on the floor that has a Mediterranean, Italian, or Asian theme depending on the type of food you serve.
Concrete can be dyed any color or combination of colors or painted with intricate designs and patterns. Stamped concrete is another option to think about. With this method, the contractor stamps designs into the floor right before the concrete dries. This can give the effect of having an expensive pebble or cobblestone floor, which would be a nice touch for certain types of building architecture.
You'll have much more freedom to design a unique floor for your restaurant when you work with a commercial concrete contractor than you would if you install carpet, wood, stone, or vinyl flooring. The flooring can create atmosphere, reflect the nature of your business, and impress your patrons all while being easy to keep clean and sanitary.
