First impressions go a long way with your guests. A great place to start a good first impression is with your floors. There are now many options to choose from when it comes to your flooring. Whether you’re looking for carpet, tiles, vinyl, or hardwood floors, AVM has you covered from the bottom up.
The flooring that you choose serves to create a mood for the guest. Checking into a hotel with a pleasing décor can create a sense of calm or excitement depending on what type of emotion you wish to convey with your lobby. Comfort is an important emotion because opinions are formed based on how a guest feels. Flooring provides you with an opportunity to enhance your overall image. The use of your space should be taken into account as some options are made to withstand heavy foot traffic, luggage carts, maid carts etc. Guests look for cleanliness in the hotels that they choose to frequent and choosing the right options will help to give the overall presentation that will stick with guests and keep them coming back to your hotel.
Carpet has been tried and true in the hospitality industry. We offer some beautiful designs that can really make your rooms and high traffic areas pop with color. There are now full pattern repeats for those who want a look of having artwork on the floor http://www.goavm.com/carpets-c-537.aspx. We also offer traditional solid color patterns and more. Some of the downsides to carpet are that it needs to be replaced more often and cleaning takes more time and care.
We also offer carpet tiles which are easy to install and to replace if part of your flooring becomes stained. Carpet tiles serve to be an efficient use of material. Because the units are smaller than in large rolls, there is a great reduction of waste during installation. Maintenance and replacement can be easily done by the hotel staff. The tiles also allow you to use different patterns to create an upscale design for the areas that you choose to install them. http://www.goavm.com/carpet-tiles-c-1757.aspx
One of the newest and most exciting options is vinyl planks http://www.goavm.com/vinyl-flooring-c-743.aspx. We have many great colors and wood patterns to choose from and also offer different styles depending on the traffic that will be in the area. Some vinyl planks offer a wear layer that will withstand heavier traffic. Cleaning the vinyl planks is much faster and more efficient than having to vacuum or spot clean spills on carpets. Vinyl is also up to twice as durable which saves you money in the long run.
For the absolute in luxury we also offer Hardwood flooring for your public areas and guestrooms. Like the vinyl planks cleaning the hardwood is fast and efficient. Guests also perceive wood flooring and vinyl planks as cleaner. There are fewer styles than with vinyl planks, but for an authentic luxury look and feel, hardwood is the way to go. http://www.goavm.com/wood-flooring-c-744.aspx
There are many factors that you should consider when choosing which type of flooring you’d like to have for your hotel. Humidity in warmer climates means that carpets can retain moisture. In cooler climates guests desire the warmer feel of carpets. As always our knowledgeable customer service representatives here at AVM are happy to help you with choosing the right options for you.
