Floor Tile: Commercial Edition

Posted by: Kali • Aug 19

Floor Tile: Commercial Edition

Our tile can go to work on commercial floors too. From restaurant to hotel bathroom floors, our Recycled Clay Body is built to last for heavy duty projects. While our other products Glazed Thin Brick, Glass and our White Clay Body can absolutely be used for wall applications in commercial spaces, we cannot recommend them for commercial floors. Due to the high traffic nature of a commercial floor, they require the most durable of materials, which is why our Recycled Clay Body is ideal. And don't worry! You are not at all limited by this clay body; you can get any of our shapes and sizes, in a wide range of colors. 

Keep in mind that we do offer competitve and volume pricing for commercial projects and also have custom capabilities (with color, shape and size). Have questions about what might be best for your project? Don't hesitate to contact us! We're sharing commercial floor inspiration below, but if you want more, check out our Pinterest Board

Cultural Institutions:
A true testament to the durability and heirloom quality of our tile, the floor of the Monterey Bay Aquarium was installed 25 years ago and is holding strong, with roughly two million pairs of feet walking over it annually.

Tile Shown: 6x6 tiles in a Custom Color at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Hospitality:
Restaurants, cafes or grocery stores can all be taken up a notch with a tile floor. Depending on location and building codes, we can also do a sanded finish with our tile colors.

Tile Shown: Custom color in Wave. (Try Antique for a similar look).

You can get colorful too. We love the mix of colors in the restaurant floor below. Try our 6" Triangles in a blend of your choice for a look like this.

Work Spaces:
Doing a project in an office or work space? Our tile can do the job. Light Lab, a creative space, chose our tile for both its kitchen area, as well as the bathroom floors.

Multi-Unit:
We often tile multi-unit apartment buildings as well, from the kitchen backsplashes to the bathroom floors. If you're tiling bathroom floors, we recommend going for a smaller size or a choosing a matte finish, for better grip in a damp environment.

Tile Shown: 2x8s in Slate Blue for the shower walls and 2x2s in Shale make up the shower pan floor.

You can also go for a slight larger size for the majority of the bathroom floor and simply scale down in the shower pans:

Tile Shown: Large Star and Cross and Mini Star and Cross in Daisy; 2x6 tiles in Sea Foam.
