In the competitive world of bars, clubs and restaurants, it’s all about retaining existing customers and luring in new ones. With the look and feel to these establishments playing such a huge part in customer satisfaction, it’s important for specifiers to get it right when choosing materials – and their choice of floor is one of the key aspects of great interior design. It must not only look good, but it also has to be durable and hard-wearing, easy to maintain and long-lasting – which is why terrazzo flooring is the order of the day.
The slip-resistant and decorative terrazzo floor is one of the most versatile flooring solutions in the marketplace with qualities that make it ideal for use in the hospitality industry. Its long and rich history, with archaeologists discovering terrazzo floors in ancient Neolithic settlements as far back as 8000 years ago, is testament to its unbeatable status as a flooring solution that stands the test of time.
Today, new interpretations of terrazzo have been created by combining decorative stone chippings with mastic asphalt, which is then polished to create infinite possibilities in any design situation.
