Specifying the Right Restaurant Tiles - Feb 20

The Importance of Choosing the Right Restaurant Tile

Restaurants in today’s modern world are expected to meet a higher level of standard for customers than ever before. A restaurant is a special space designed to create a certain ambience that invites diners to relax and enjoy their experience, and flooring is one of the most important decisions you can make for a restaurant project. Unlike paint, wallpaper or furniture, which can be easily replaced, the choice of tiles needs to have longevity - both in terms of aesthetics and practicality.

Combining Style and Practicality

Whichever style your client has requested for their restaurant project, there is a vast range of tiles available to produce the desired effect, including wood-effect, cement-effect, stone-effect, and encaustic-effect. All are available in different shades, hues and finishes, with a range of patterns possible, from traditional to modern.

As well as the visual appeal of the flooring, there are also many practical considerations to consider. Most importantly, restaurants are busy, high traffic places and the floors need to be strong and safe, which means choosing hardwearing materials such as tiles. With this in mind, you might also like to think about the amount of light coming into the restaurant, and choose tiles that will reflect light in smaller spaces to create the illusion of more space. Another way to create more space is to choose larger tiles with fewer grout lines.

Here at CTD Architectural Tiles, our portfolio of tiles for commercial spaces is sure to provide the perfect solution for your restaurant space. We understand that every restaurant requires a different look and has different practical needs, which is why we work closely with the architect, developer, specifier or designer during every stage of the project to ensure all requirements are met.

Projects: Nandos George St Oxford & Nando's Sydenham | Nandos Plymouth

Demonstrating the level of detail that goes into every project, our work with the Nando’s restaurant chain required a unique approach to two different venues. In Nando's George St Oxford & Nando's Sydenham we were able to deliver bespoke fabricated tiles from our Kursaal range resulting in a unique floor design like no other.

From the Gatsby, Amazonia, Coachella and Frammenti collections, we have a colour, pattern and texture just right for your restaurant scheme. Whether you’re looking for a traditional or modern scheme, a colourful or monochromatic look, there’s a tile that will suit.

Anti-Slip Tiles

Meanwhile, our anti-slip tiles provide a safe, practical and durable option for restaurant floors. Our Traffic range is specially designed to include a structured finish with R12C rating. Available in six neutral colours and two sizes, you will find an option to suit every restaurant space. Our anti-slip tiles offer peace of mind where safety is a must.

Range: Traffic

Whatever you decide to do, make sure you get the best results from a tiled floor for your restaurant space by working the geometry of the space and the furniture within it to the grid of the tile. There’s no doubt that a floor’s finish is a fundamental component of a successful design, so the project’s success is ultimately largely down to the choice of flooring that is specified.
