What is the best type of flooring for a restaurant/kitchen?

Posted By Solidwood Company

When searching for the most suitable flooring for a Restaurant/Commercial kitchen there are a few factors that need to be taken into consideration. You will be searching for a floor that can handle heavy footfall, high temperatures and moisture. Not only is practicality a key consideration, style and cost are equally as important. This is why you want to consider the option of a vinyl floor. 

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is possibly the most popular flooring solution for kitchens. A good vinyl floor is sturdy allowing it to cope well with heavy footfall. Impervia flooring is a fine example of flooring that’s 100% suitable for kitchens and Restaurants. The Solid Wood Flooring Company put their flooring through extreme durability checks (see results here) so not only is their flooring durable but Impervia’s innovative flooring is also fully waterproof. This is because Impervia’s IXPE backing is 1.5mm thick and is fixed to a rigid luxury flooring tile as part of the manufacturing process. On top of all this, the luxury vinyl flooring has a low slip risk making it ideal for kitchens and Restaurants.
