More than ever, flooring is becoming a major concern among wellness spaces. The right kind of flooring can save any establishment the labor and cost of maintenance and ensure that their patrons are safe and comfortable to move around. Aesthetics are also an incredibly important aspect of choosing a floor. Even color can affect your customers’ mood and experience.
