From Shabby to Chic: How Simple Flooring Touches Can Transform Your Commercial SpaceAugust 24, 2023
The effects of artificial intelligence (AI) in 2023 are significant, and the technology has been making waves in industries worldwide.
Yet, one industry that may not immediately come to mind when you think of AI integration is commercial flooring. However, even commercial flooring and design are not immune to AI capabilities and the innovation it creates. Keep reading to learn more about how AI is changing the commercial flooring landscape and how our team at Commercial Flooring & Interior Concepts is utilizing this new technology to better serve our clients.
Sometimes You Need to See it to Believe it
One of the most difficult aspects of choosing a commercial flooring product for consumers is thinking about how a design will fit in a commercial space. Consumers often overwhelm themselves with questions about the selection process. Will the flooring work with the wall paint color? Will we have to update our furniture? How will it fit in with the aesthetics of the space? While for some, the ability to envision certain design choices in a space comes easily, for others, it does not, and they prefer to leave nothing to the imagination, so to speak, to ensure the flooring they choose is compatible with the commercial area.
This is where AI technology comes in because it can showcase how any floor will look in a space so customers can appreciate the effect the flooring will have on the area without the project even beginning. And luckily for consumers, many suppliers now offer this technology for some of their products so contractors and designers can easily see how a product will look in a commercial environment without ever breaking ground.
Let’s look at these before and after images of a recent flooring project we completed at a religious setting that came to us looking to refresh the space with a new floor. As you can see, the photo on the left shows the AI-generated image of what the flooring product would look like in the space and how we planned to lay the planks down. The photo on the right showcases the beautiful finished product.
Streamlining the Flooring Selection Process
By utilizing these AI features in commercial flooring, we are able to provide our customers with a more accurate vision of what the area will look like once the new flooring is installed. This helps us streamline the selection process, which, in turn, accelerates the design process effectively.
