Q1: What are the prominent trends in flooring design in the hospitality sector?
In the luxury hospitality segment, one of the trends that has been observed internationally is having engineered wood as a flooring option of choice in the bedrooms and top end suites, club areas. One of the main reasons for this choice is the luxury appeal of such floors and the large variety of possible patterns. Wood species such as teak and american walnut continue to impart a certain level of luxe to the room. Oak engineered floors in various colour tones and excellent grain structure are also an excellent and a very popular option. Another reason, besides the aesthetics, is the speed of installation and the ease of renovation. By survey, it is found that installing a wood floor due to the modern installation systems available not only saves a considerable time in construction, they are also easy to maintain and renovate provided the right product is used.
