3 Things to Think About When Replacing Retail Flooring

The holiday season may seem a long way away, but retailers know it’s just around the corner. Soon stores will be flooded with customers, and owners, managers, and employees will have to keep up in more ways than one. Before the holiday shopping season really kicks off, you need to make sure that your store is ready. Part of that preparation is ensuring that your flooring is in good condition. If it’s time to replace your retail flooring, now is the time to do it.


Are you ready to replace your retail flooring? Here are three things to think about.


Traffic Patterns

Floors don’t wear out evenly across the entire area of your store. The flooring will wear our first in high-traffic areas. These areas may vary from store to store, but entrances and main aisles are the first areas that will start to show signs of wear. If you plan to change the layout of your store, think about how that will change the traffic patterns. In that case, it is smart to replace less resilient flooring materials with flooring that can withstand heavy foot traffic, like Rikett quartz tiles.


Safety Concerns

If your store is in an area that deals with ice and snow or wet weather in the winter, wet floors and slippery surfaces are a concern. Some retail stores use carpeting, but that is difficult to keep clean, and if wet carpet fails to dry out, you run the risk of mold or mildew growth. A better solution is to place mats at the entrances and use a flooring material with low absorption so it is easy to clean up puddles.


Design Trends

The look of your flooring contributes to your customer’s experience in your store. It is important to choose flooring that is attractive and appealing. Design trends come and go, and Rikett quartz tile flooring will long outlast whatever the latest popular thing is. But our classic design and wide variety of color options let you design a floor that matches your store’s aesthetic and will look great for years to come.
