The atmosphere of a senior living community is often created in the common areas where residents gather and interact. Because the meal time experience can be one of the most exciting parts of a day for a resident, dining areas are a key part of the senior living community and can be attractive for potential clients.

Materials that are beautiful, durable and easy to maintain are paramount in creating a warm, welcoming gathering space.

Considerations

  • High traffic durability
  • Rolling carts and wheelchairs
  • Scratch resistance
