Why luxury vinyl flooring is the perfect guest in the B&B sector
When it comes to interior design in hospitality, there are a myriad of design factors to take into consideration. This is especially true in the bed and breakfast sector, explains David Bigland, managing director of luxury vinyl tile (LVT) specialist Moduleo UK and Eire.
From elegant dining spaces to bedroom and bathroom facilities, the B&B sector requires flooring that is both aesthetic, functional and long lasting.
Combining these two fundamentals effectively isn’t always straightforward, however, LVT has been used across a plethora of hospitality projects.
With such vast experience in the sector, we have developed key observations and tips for creating the perfect hospitality space.
Whether you’re looking for a stone- or wood-effect floor, LVT is a cost-effective, stylish alternative to real wood or stone.
Proprietors no longer have to opt for standard design solutions just to stay within public space regulations. Moduleo, for example, has more than 100 design styles to choose from, ranging from modern and chic to warm and relaxing.
No commercial design should be purely focused on aesthetics. Designers plan for practicality and understand the full customer experience, so carefully consider sound, which is a key consideration in spaces such as guest bedrooms and walkways.
Flooring is an important factor when considering impact sound – the amount of noise generated by movement and how this affects adjacent rooms. LVT is produced to ensure minimal impact sound without compromising on design, durability and ease of maintenance.
LVTs brands are unique because they are available in a range of instillation options, providing the optimum solution whether your objective is an easy initial fitting, or the flexibility of reinstallation for the future. Moduleo’s innovative Click technology also provides an even easier solution, as it negates the need for adhesive and time-consuming room preparation.
Get in the zone
Zoning is an important consideration to enable separation, or making a statement. This is particularly important when considering space planning for customers and staff, which is essential in luxury bed and breakfast environments. For example, you may wish to separate guest and owner spaces or mae a focal point in the dining room.
Whether it’s classic monochrome, or a colourful geometric pattern, statement floors are also becoming an increasingly popular trend thanks to their ability to allow people to create a unique mood and convey personality.
Bed and Breakfast spaces are inevitably expected to endure high volumes of footfall and nobody wants to have to replace flooring every few months.
Thanks to its unique manufacturing process, LVT is scuff resistant and can handle significant usage compared to natural wood or stone. This offers peace of mind that the floor will stand the test of time.
Our team has worked with countless interior designers, architects and specifiers to provide the perfect flooring solution for a wide range of hospitality projects. We’re on hand to ensure the ultimate peace of mind throughout the process, ensuring that the flooring solution specified is cost effective and delivered efficiently.
For those unsure about how create an eye-catching floor, LVT now comes in a wide selection of colourways and patterns, including hexagons, chevrons, triangles and diamonds, as well as traditional squares and rectangles.
