How to Style a Showroom Floor
Showrooms tend to be large, empty rooms by nature. After all, you need space to show things off. That doesn’t leave you with much to do in terms of design. The primary points that will make or break your showroom’s visual appeal are the lighting and the floor.
While we can’t give much guidance on the lighting, we do know a thing or two about floors. First, let’s talk about the material you should use for the flooring.
Concrete is Great for Showrooms
When it comes to flooring for a showroom, concrete is arguably the best choice. It’s affordable, easy to install, low maintenance, highly resistant, and long lasting. Best of all, it’s probably already in place. So why not work from there?
There are a lot of things you can do to concrete to make it stronger and more visually appealing.
Though concrete is strong, you may want some extra support for your showroom. Particularly if you’re driving heavy machines or cars across it. Concrete densifier is a compound that fills in pours on the concrete surface, increasing the strength while decreasing absorption.
Want to add a beautiful, smooth finish to your showroom floor? Concrete polishing can do that. Think of it like sanding for your concrete. Utilizing a variety of diamond abrasive pads, along with a chemical harder to densify the finished surface, polished concrete will leave you with a beautiful end product.
Concrete sealer penetrates the surface of the concrete, increasing its resistance to spills and stains. It’s visually versatile, allowing you to achieve a glossy or non-gloss finish. You can also find a nice middle ground between the two.
If you’re looking for a high-gloss finish that masks blemishes and provides superior protection, then epoxy coating is a great choice. Concrete epoxy is a resin-based compound that adds a smooth, protective layer on top of your concrete.
Want some additional styling options? Maybe a splash of color? Concrete staining is a process that can be paired with the above processes to give you a truly unique and beautiful floor. Concrete stain can even be utilized to mimic other materials such as stone, marble, and more.
With the right stain and finishing products, the possibilities are near endless.
Make Sure the Job is Done Right
A properly coated concrete floor is a beautiful thing to behold. A poorly done concrete floor is not only visually unappealing, but it will chip and peal away quickly. When you’re styling your showroom floor, make sure it’s done right the first time.
