Custom Printed Floors
Are you looking for
a special feature to tie your project together? A design component that’s
unique to the space and reflects the values or aesthetic of your client? One
way to ensure that the space has both visual appeal and one-of-a-kind flair is
to install custom printed floors.
In recent years, the
technology used by vinyl tile manufacturers has made great advances, and
high-resolution images can now be featured as a premium design element.
Virtually any type of image can be embedded in the floor design, from natural
scenes to corporate logos; from bold abstract splashes of colour to detailed
maps; from photos of historical scenes to classical works of art.
Sheet vinyl can
compose one huge mural, a beach, for example; or can carry a smaller repeated
image, such as a single shell, across a large space. Often, a large team or
company logo is placed in the centre of a room; other times smaller versions of
the image are positioned throughout the entire area.

tiles are also available for particular circumstances. For example, if you want
to feature both vinyl and carpet in the same space, thicker tiles ensure that
transitions between the two surfaces will be smooth; you can easily install
tile in high-traffic areas and carpet elsewhere. Premium manufacturers also
make tiles designed especially for health-care settings. These tiles contain
microscopic silver particles that work to combat bacteria, fungus, and mold.
Easy, Durable, and Affordable
In addition to its
design capacity and its versatility, vinyl is the most cost-effective flooring
choice on the market. This material’s extreme durability means that it will not
need to be replaced for many years, and may indeed last as long as the building
itself is in use.
Maintenance costs are low, too. Vinyl needs very
little maintenance. Most times just sweeping or vacuuming is sufficient, in
conjunction with damp mopping with a mild cleanser on a regular basis.
