When it comes to visiting businesses, customers want to feel comfortable. From pharmacies to shoe stores, to restaurants and bars, your guests want to feel welcome in your place of business. This means it’s time to move away from the commercial looking products, and towards the products that offer commercial quality, with welcoming and comforting designs.
Reclaimed wood is wood that has been retrieved from its original purpose, to be used in another application. For example, barn boards taken from an old barn and repurposed as wainscoting. Due to its weathered look, it can create a unique look and feel in your place of business, giving your space warmth and texture that standard commercial flooring and other products don’t.
While it would be ideal to be able to just go out, tear some boards off a barn and be on with your renovations, sometimes the look is just as good as the real thing. Commercial flooring products are able to mimic the look and feel of reclaimed wood, but adding the benefits of performance characteristics like stain resistance, and added durability.
Research suggests that a calm, serene, and relaxing setting can speed up healing in healthcare spaces. If you’re a pharmacy, or clinic owner, the look of reclaimed wood can give your patients the space they need to encourage healing.
