Polyflor vinyl tiles help add retro edge to diner

A variety of commercial vinyl tile products from UK manufacturer Polyflor were recently chosen to create a retro inspired interior design scheme for Nelson’s Diner in Newbury, Berkshire.

Expona Commercial PUR luxury vinyl tiles in Light Grey Concrete were fitted around the booth seating area, with the Black Matrix design used for a highlight arc shade near the bar area. Expona Bevel Line PUR tiles in the pale Portland Stone design were also installed around the bar seating area. Polyflex Plus PU tiles were also used to create a chequerboard pattern floor in the middle of the diner.

Both the Expona Commercial and Expona Bevel Line luxury vinyl tile collections are ideal for heavy commercial environments in hospitality, retail and leisure sectors where there is likely to be a high level of foot traffic.

Multiple designs from Polyflor’s Expona Flow commercial sheet vinyl collection were selected to create a floor, inspired by the children’s TV series Thomas and Friends™, for the Thomas Land™ gift shop and Engine Shed photo area.

Three shades from the Expona Flow Cosmos range (Woodland, Taupe and Luna) provided a bold and eye-catching backdrop, while the Bronzed Pine design from the Expona Flow Wood collection was used to replicate the look of railway sleepers.

Douglas Stuart, Head of Facilities at Drayton Manor Park said: “We’re really pleased with our new Polyflor Expona Flow sheet vinyl flooring. Here at Drayton Manor Park we are all about making children’s experiences extra special and this Thomas themed flooring really continues the magic”.
