Fashion-Forward Flooring for the Healthcare and Education Sectors

When it comes to specifying flooring, designers tend to have a tough time finding suitable products for  healthcare and education projects. That’s because these spaces see a lot of action and need to be outfitted with products that perform consistently well. Flooring in a hospital or an elementary school needs to be tough enough to take regular beatings—whether from heavy biomedical equipment or exuberant running and jumping—and pliable enough to provide comfort underfoot. It also needs to resist germs, abet acoustics, and most importantly, look good. It’s a tall order, but one company has a solution that goes above and beyond.

Designed specifically with the healthcare and education sectors in mind, Mats Inc.’s newest flooring product, Tailor Grace, provides a durable, environmentally friendly, and aesthetic alternative to standard commercial flooring options. Designers styling spaces as diverse as classrooms, NICU’s, libraries, and operating rooms can focus on making spaces beautiful knowing that Tailor Grace is equipped to handle the rough demands thrown on flooring products. In addition to being a resilient vinyl flooring product from Mats Inc., Tailor Grace is FloorScore certified, 100% phthalate-free, and manufactured with water-based inks and no heavy metals.

“Tailor Grace emerged from the timeless nature of the capsule wardrobe: well-appointed and edited to include essentials that withstand the test of time,” explains JoAnn Durette, vice president of marketing at Mats Inc. “Like a favorite outfit, Tailor Grace flooring is beautiful and reliable.”

Although its name draws inspiration from fashion, there’s nothing superficial about Tailor Grace. The line features four distinct collections of saturated hues and warm wood tones with matte finishes, all designed to be mixed and matched to create dynamic spaces.
