A-Z of Flooring – G is for Gloss

In commercial environments such as retail boutiques and showrooms the finish of your floor is crucial to creating the right mood and atmosphere. A glossy epoxy resin floor coating can reinforce feelings of luxury or create a contemporary vibe.

A typical gloss finish epoxy resin coating will be easy to clean, attractive, hard wearing and in the right colour, offer light reflective properties which can help brighten dull environments.

Depending on your brand you could choose a natural, pastel colour such as white or light grey or you could opt for a colourful striking shade to create impact.

If you’re considering a glossy floor finish for your facility, you need to ensure you consider the level and type of foot traffic, cleaning and maintenance regime and the condition of your existing concrete slab.

Whilst this type of finish can look amazing if your existing concrete substrate is in good condition, a glossy floor can also highlight imperfections in the slab. You can achieve the best finish possible with proper preparation.
