Why Choose a Seamless Resin Floor?
Updated: Oct 12, 2021
To start off with, let’s explore what a seamless floor is!
According to Merriam-Webster, seamless refers to the movement from one thing to another without any interruption or issues.
The results are quite perfect. When you factor the term with flooring, it makes sense for designers and homeowners to want a seamless floor for their projects. Seams and grout lines can be a long-term health and maintenance issue. This is due to the fact that grout lines, which are commonly found in flooring types like vinyl and tile, accumulate dirt particles over time. Why wouldn’t you want a floor that flows effortlessly throughout the room?
Seamless resin flooring is now becoming a popular choice for contemporary design schemes. Resin floors can be made to look similar to a concrete floor, or can consist of aggregates to create a bespoke finish. It also offers plenty of room for experimenting with colour and texture. Satin or matte, bright or neutral, you can achieve a variety of looks with resin.
The biggest factor in selecting a resin floor is its practicality: stain and dirt resistant, this is a great option for high traffic areas. It's also hypoallergenic and a great replacement for carpeted floors. Even better, resin works with all types of underfloor heating.
What is Resin and What are Its Benefits?
Resin flooring varies according to the manufacturer, but is made from synthetic materials such as polyurethane or epoxy resins, or, in some cases, natural materials. Resin flooring is hand applied by trowel on site for the perfect finish.
It is waterproof and hygienic, as well as anti-slip and low-maintenance, and can be used with most types of underfloor heating. Additionally, resin adopts the given room’s ambient temperature, which makes it warm in the winter and cool during summer.
It can be installed on almost any stable substrate, provided that it is free of movement and moisture.
The colour possibilities for resin are endless, and flooring can be found in every shade in the RAL and NCS colour charts.
