Rethink Resilient Floor Replacement with the Bona Commercial System Resilient Floor Solution

From museums to commercial buildings, to schools and hospitals, resilient flooring is a durable, functional material that can stand up to the wear and tear of high-use facilities. And the market is growing. According to a study by Fortune Business Insights, “The global resilient flooring market size was $29.62 billion in 2019 & is projected to reach $58.11 billion by 2027.” Yet what if we could renovate some of this flooring material rather than replace it?

The material can be revitalized and renovated to change the color, add design elements, and even mimic the appearance of stone or terrazzo. Additionally, it can provide a healthier environment while also serving its functional purpose.
