The Importance of Choosing the Right Assisted Living Flooring

Now more than ever before, assisted living facilities are a critical part of healthcare. Providing around the clock care for those who need it, these facilities also bring peace of mind to families, knowing their loved ones are in good hands. Finding a quality assisted living flooring that offers the benefits of traditional healthcare products while also feeling “homey” can be a difficult task.

Rikett Quartz Tile (RQT) achieves this balance while offering various style choices with the highest quality material. Here is a more in-depth look at why choosing the right type of assisted living flooring truly does make a difference.

Although assisted living environments are home to many, they are primarily medical facilities. This means they must be able to handle and adequately sanitize any biohazards. Rikett tiles are made of quartz, a nonporous material that is perfect for keeping clean. The low absorption rate prevents staining and resists shrinkage. This hinders bacteria growth, which is critical in medical environments.




Since our assisted living flooring tiles are made of heavy duty quartz, you don’t have to worry about damage or warping that renders it dangerous. Instead, your floor will be smooth and safe at all times. RQT also meets all smoke and fire ratings and meets ADA slip regulations. And as we know, preventing slips and falls is especially critical in assisted living facilities.



As we said above, assisted living facilities are primarily medical buildings. That being said, they are also home to many individuals. Using a flooring design that is comforting and aesthetically pleasing can make a difference in a patient’s moods and attitudes.

At Rikett, we understand this effect, which is why we are proud to offer our quartz tiles in many designs, so you can feel good about choosing one your patients will love.
