Flooring Choices for Your Commercial Kitchen, Anchorage, Alaska

Selecting the best flooring for a commercial kitchen can be a challenge. You need to ensure it’s durable, safe, and easy to clean to keep your business moving. Options like ceramic tile, natural stone, and vinyl can fit the bill and stand up to the daily workload.

Vinyl is often thought of as a default material for kitchen flooring. It’s extremely tough and stands up well to water and spills, which can then be mopped up quickly and easily. Vinyl can also be kept sanitary with little trouble. Chefs and cooks may appreciate a layer of padding laid underneath it at the time of installation, so the long days and nights spent standing will cause less strain.

Ceramic TileWhile vinyl does have good qualities, it’s not the most aesthetically appealing option. Something more attractive can improve staff morale and, if your kitchen is open to customer view, make it a focal point of the decor. Ceramic tile is a choice that shares vinyl’s durability and ease of cleaning, as long as it is properly glazed and treated. However, it also comes in many different colors, shapes, and patterns, so you can choose a look that suits your restaurant’s vibe.

For a high-end, luxe look, you may also wish to consider natural stone. Slate is a particularly good choice for its strength, traction, and beauty. If you decide on this option, keep in mind that, unlike ceramic tile and vinyl, it isn’t fully waterproof and may absorb spills and stains if not properly cared for. Regular coats of sealant will help you sidestep the issue and make use of this flooring for many years.
