Cape Town is an exceptionally popular city in Western Cape. Not only is it South Africa’s legislative capital, but its world-renowned harbour also attracts thousands of tourists every year. Cape Town is the second largest city (Johannesburg being the first) in South Africa with an estimated population of around 3,81 million people. With so many locals, businesses in the area need to stand out if they want to succeed.
If you own a restaurant in Cape Town, then you will know that there are numerous places to eat in the city and each one has their own unique atmosphere and personality. If you already feel confident in your brand, service and products, then it may be time to focus on the way your physical business looks. The flooring you opt for in your restaurant is just as important as the walls, chairs and tables. Your customers engage with your floors the instant they enter your establishment, so getting that first impression right is essential. At Floor Trader, a division of Top Carpets and Floors, we have ample experience in providing flooring for new and trendy restaurants.
What Restaurant Flooring Should Do
Before getting into what looks good, you need functional floors that will not let your business down. Restaurant flooring can be divided into a few sections, such as the waiting area, seating area, kitchen, and bathrooms – and each space might require something different. Either way, you will need to look into floor surfaces that last despite foot traffic and are resistant to stains, impact and water.
It is also, of course, crucial that your selected product looks great and sets the tone for your establishment. Below are three types of flooring that work well for most restaurants:
- Carpeting for Warmth and LuxuryCommercial carpeting is very different from residential carpeting, and the main difference lies in how they are constructed. Commercial carpets are made to face wear and tear and are far more affordable. While some still imagine that commercial floors are drab and unattractive, modern designs add rich depth and create an inviting atmosphere in your chosen space.
- Laminates for Inexpensive ResilienceLaminate floors are incredibly strong and do not wear out quickly. Stains are simple to clean up and it resists scratches well too. Many modern restaurants make use of laminate planks because they are cost-friendly and straightforward to maintain.
- Luxury Vinyl Tiles and Planks Suit Any AreaLVTs and LVPs are waterproof, making them ideal for places such as the kitchen or bathrooms. A popular restaurant flooring choice, luxury vinyl provides that authentic wood or stone tile finish without the price that comes along with wood and stone.Your restaurant needs to stand out, especially in an eclectic city like Cape Town, so what better way to do it than through floor renovation?
