Hotel & Hospitality Flooring: A Rising Trend in Seamless Flooring Applications

Hotel & Hospitality Flooring: A Rising Trend in Seamless Flooring Applications

Gone are the days where marble and stone are installed in hotel lobbies. In an ever-rising trend, upscale hotels and hospitality chains have moved towards seamless flooring applications in their facilities for multiple reasons.  Take a look at the W Hotel, One Hotel, Hilton Hotel and Ritz-Carlton hotel chains, and you’ll notice that a lot of renovation is happening in their entryways. Tiles are being removed and seamless and decorative concrete flooring systems are being installed – specifically, Concrete Toppings and Overlayments.

Additionally, hotel and hospitality chains have been getting rid of their old, quarry tile flooring systems in their kitchen, food service and utility spaces as well. With Health Department, USDA and FDA regulations pressing down on these establishments, epoxy and Urethane Flooring solutions remain the only suitable option for kitchens that operate around-the-clock and require stringent sanitary practices.

But why are hotels opting to spend so much money on renovating their facilities just to swap out their floors?

Some of the benefits that Concrete and Epoxy flooring provide for hotels include the following:

  • Organic and Natural Aesthetics – Seamless concrete flooring solutions are beautiful. Once stained or polished they look like natural, seamless granite. The other benefit is that there are no grout-lines, which is a characteristic that is not only pleasing to the eye but also facilitates with the ease of interior decorating.
  • Chemical and UV Resistance – The presence of cleaning agents and constant foot traffic is inevitable for hotel environments. Concrete and epoxy flooring systems are designed to withstand the effects of long-term exposure to all of these substances.
  • Abrasion Resistance – Concrete and epoxy flooring offers superior high-wear properties that help to prevent scratching and scraping from luggage, food carts, bell carts and strollers.
  • Easy to Clean and Maintain – Large spaces are difficult to keep clean. However, with the installation of a polished concrete and/or epoxy flooring system, concrete slabs become non-porous.  Cleaning equipment and products are easily scrubbed, sprayed, and squeegeed off of these floors without any absorption.
  • Moisture Resistant – Buildings that are built “slab-on-grade” are usually at risk for moisture vapor transmission, especially in the southern parts of the United States. Moisture Vapor Resistant Epoxy products can be installed to help protect against these potential risks.
