Sushi Ten Restaurant Floor
The owner of Sushi Ten restaurant wanted a floor that could help achieve a traditional Japanese feel with a modern twist. The two types of existing tiles weren’t suitable and had to be over-coated to avoid the cost of removal. In the end the choice was a quick one, with this copper design a perfect match for the wooden furnishings and spectacular overhanging tree feature.
Client - Sushi Ten
Location - Surfers Paradise, QLD
Floor Type - Restaurant (Retail and Commercial)
Design Scope -
- Copper floor design was used to bring out the colour of the wooden furnishings (including a spectacular overhanging tree feature) and help create a traditional Japanese feel with a modern twist.
- The two types of existing tiles weren’t the right fit for the design goals and new tiles weren’t considered as the owner wanted to avoid grout lines to “open up” the area as much as possible.
- The floor had to be easy to clean as the restaurant had sliding partitions that were fully open during business hours. A semi-gloss polish was also applied over the finish for easier maintenance.
- Installation was carried out in a busy shopping and dining precinct, so a product free of pungent odours and dangerous solvents was a priority.
- Vitrified tiles can be very challenging to over-coat, however the contractor was able to do so and save the client the large costs and delays associated with removal.
