assisted living floors

The choice of flooring materials in assisted living facilities is critical in creating an environment that is safe, comfortable, and easy to maintain. The right flooring materials can help prevent accidents, provide a comfortable living space, and promote the overall well-being of seniors. When selecting materials for assisted living floors, you have several options to consider. But our team at Rikett thinks that you should choose quartz tile flooring.


There are certain characteristics that assisted living floors need to have. Let’s take a look at them and how quartz tiles meet those needs.


Slip Resistant

Seniors are more prone to slips and falls, which can lead to serious injuries. It is essential to choose flooring materials that are slip-resistant, even when wet. Quartz is known for being a natural material that is also slip-resistant. You still need to promptly clean up spills to ensure safety, but quartz flooring will spill provide better slip-resistance than other flooring materials.


Low Maintenance and Durable

Assisted living facilities have high foot traffic and need regular maintenance. Flooring materials that are easy to clean and maintain are essential. As we’re sure you know, quartz is non-porous. This gives quartz many beneficial characteristics, including easy maintenance and durability. It’s important to keep your floor well-maintained in any building, but especially so in an assisted living facility, where a fall can result in a serious injury to one of the residents.


Color and Appearance

You also can’t forget to consider how the floors look. The appearance of flooring materials can affect seniors’ moods and overall well-being. Flooring materials should have a warm and welcoming appearance that promotes a sense of comfort and security. Rikett Quartz Tile comes in many colors and patterns, so you can create a welcoming and attractive environment for your residents and their visitors.
