Choosing the Best Flooring for Your Restaurant

Restaurant flooring

Build your restaurant from the ground up with beautiful non-slip floors.


When you choose flooring for your restaurant, you can choose to match your various zones of use to different flooring products or select a single type of non-slip floor that works well throughout. Your primary concern is likely safety, since nearly 200,000 restaurant employees get hurt on the job during a typical year, according to Food Newsfeed, but you have other criteria too. Learn about the options in commercial and restaurant flooring so your establishment is a safe, comfortable and attractive space.


Restaurant Entry

As a guest’s first impression of your restaurant, your entry has to be inviting, attractive and spotless. Also, since your customers will be tracking the outside in, it must be easy to clean. On top of that, your entry floor should be non-slip and compliment the decorating theme of your dining room. Coated concrete flooring is an attractive, low-maintenance and moisture-resistant option. As far as aesthetics, you can choose from solid colors to decorative metallic designs.


Dining Room Flooring

No matter the vibe of your restaurant, from upscale to family-style, you naturally want your dining room to be eye-catching and comfortable. Carpeting is a popular choice because it creates a warm, inviting atmosphere, and for design purposes, it comes in a wide array of colors, patterns and textures. If you don’t want the hassle of ground-in dirt despite frequent cleanings, you may opt for an alternative, such as:

  • Polished Concrete
  • Metallic Marble Top
  • Decorative Quartz
  • Stained Concrete
  • Sealed Concrete
  • Epoxy Coated


Kitchen Flooring

The most important feature to look for in restaurant kitchen flooring is a non-slip surface. Slip and fall injuries are among the most common mishaps for restaurant employees nationwide. No matter what kind of flooring you select for other parts of your establishment, easy to clean, non-slip flooring is a must in the kitchen. It should be durable enough to handle non-stop traffic, high-temperature spills and cleaning solvents. Oh, and it should be resistant to mold and bacteria too.


One new product that fills the bill perfectly is USDA urethane cement. It meets the health and safety standards for restaurant flooring while providing a seamless surface that looks great over the long-term. It contains tiny particles of silver that prevent microbial growth, which helps with keeping your kitchen exceptionally clean.
