All businesses need flooring. Although stamped, stained and textured concrete are an option, when it comes to your spa flooring, concrete is rarely the right choice. Whether your spa is a full day spa with many services or a salon, you want your clients to feel comfortable, calm and relaxed from the moment they walk in. The best flooring depends very much on the offering of your salon or spa. Our favorites are luxury vinyl, tile, and commercial laminate. All have the pros and cons.
Luxury Vinyl Tile and Planks
Luxury vinyl products offer many benefits. First, quality brands are waterproof so no matter what services you offer, your flooring is safe. Second, they are comfortable to stand on for extended periods, so if you offer salon services and have staff standing for many hours a day, they won’t suffer as much leg and back fatigue. One overlooked benefit is that luxury vinyl planks emulate real wood. Luxury vinyl tile can look like natural stone. By choosing a pattern that connects us to nature, which most people find soothing, you can add to the peaceful and serene ambiance you’re going for. It’s also slip resistant and stain resistant. Why isn’t all spa flooring a luxury vinyl product? It isn’t the cheapest of flooring products.
Floridians love tile. It’s durable, waterproof, and comes in countless options. Because of its many options, it comes in a wide price range. It can be the most affordable of flooring options other than concrete. A few drawbacks are how hard it is on your workers who stand all day and how dyes can stain the grout. If you are a salon and spa, and want tile, you may want to consider a darker grout color.
Quality commercial laminate can be a good option for your spa flooring. It is easy to clean and maintain and most quality products are highly water and stain resistant. Commercial laminate comes in many styles and patterns, including a wood look that can enhance the connection to nature in your space. With a good underlayment, laminate can be comfortable to stand on. If you’re a full-service salon and only want one flooring material throughout the space and are on a budget, laminate may be your best option.
