Shopping for furniture is a bit like shopping for a new car or a piece of art. The environment in which the furniture is displayed is important enough that it should present the beauty of the furniture while at the same time not distracting potential customers from imagining how it might look if it was theirs. Microtopping floors in retail furniture stores achieve this, by being both durable and beautiful, as well as presenting a clean, blank slate for shoppers to project their own dreams upon.
Concrete is an increasingly important design criteria for modern architects and designers. People have finally discovered that concrete is much more than cinder blocks or the plain gray of a broom-finished sidewalk. Microtoppings are an innovative solution for flooring that combines the elegance and durability of concrete with the ability to change the look of a floor.
Microtoppings are thin coatings that are applied on top of a flooring substrate, often concrete that is in disrepair. It applies very thinly, does not add a lot of weight and bonds very well to the prior surface. Microtoppings by Duraamen are developed to lend a smooth finish that can take on any look or color with ease, making them perfectly suited for the retail environment.
Because microtoppings are so durable, they can be used indoors and outdoors, which can provide you with seamless transitions in all of your retail spaces. It is also equally suited for flooring as well as for vertical surfaces such as stairs or walls in order to provide a consistent, coherent look for any of your retail outlets.
Microtoppings used in a retail furniture store has numerous benefits. A custom, tailored appearance is just one. The final appearance of your floor is so versatile, you can choose any color scheme, border or design as well as any color combination, from soft contemporary grays to splashes of color on stenciled borders or logos. Anything is possible. Your floor can be perfectly smooth or look worn from age, although, of course, still being brand new and long-lasting.
Most flooring is completed quickly and with minimal downtime, and pricing is comparable to other flooring, particularly when you compare the durability of your microtopping floor.
The resistance to impact, abrasion and compression makes microtopping floors a perfect choice for retail stores selling heavy furniture items. Move the furniture around as often as you like and be assured that your floor can handle it.
