South Florida has been home to hundreds of exclusive country clubs and private clubs since the 1930s. They’re part of the social fabric of the community, and in many important ways, they’re part of South Florida’s history. Today, country club membership remains an integral part of the South Florida lifestyle — a place for friends to gather, families to connect and celebrate, and alliances to be formed while on the golf course.
From Palm Beach to Miami, country clubs have maintained their old-school elegance with exquisite, hand-painted frescos on barrel-vaulted ceilings, brilliant travertine and marble floors, luxurious patterned carpets, intricate leaded glass fixtures, carved mahogany furnishings and lavish manicured gardens. For country clubs to maintain their elegant image, flooring and décor should be given serious thought. Country clubs require different flooring for different areas, but it all must meet the same criterion: it must be beautiful, it must perform, be slip-resistant and be able to hold up for long periods of time. At East Coast Flooring & Interiors, our team has installed hundreds of commercial floors in country clubs across South Florida.
Country Club Flooring Options
Carpet flooring provides heat insulation and can generate significant energy savings – a plus for any country club. Plus, it creates a safe environment, providing a non-slip surface and the ability to soften any impact. Carpets in general absorb airborne pollutants to give better air quality indoors and they are easy to clean and reduce noise rather than magnify it.
For carpet flooring installation, country clubs generally use broadloom and Axminsters. With their timeless looks, these carpets have been updated with unexpected patterns and colors to satisfy any design need. These high-quality carpets give a unique feeling of ultimate luxury. They are popular country club flooring choices for spaces like corridors, ballrooms, card rooms and meeting rooms. And they offer practical and environmental benefits, and are aesthetically pleasing, welcoming, comfortable and warm.
East Coast Flooring & Interiors, a leader in country club flooring installation, is seeing a trend in tile installation and now: hardwood flooring installation, especially in the entryways, on the dance floors and in common areas. Hardwood floors add beauty and elegance to any space, and country clubs are finding it to be a popular choice due to its practical and decorative nature. The most abundantly renewable and environmentally friendly flooring material available, there is a lot of variety in terms of surface, species, finish and stain. This flooring gives a unique effect to the interior, thereby enhancing the beauty of the country club.
While hardwood flooring is a great choice, not all woods are created equal. It’s important to consider the pros and cons of each type. Ash wood flooring is extremely hard and holds stains really well – baseball bats are usually made from ash. However, some ash is too light and can tend to cost more than other options. Oak is extremely dent- and scratch-resistant, but it also boasts unique grain patterns. It comes in both light and dark tones, which gives you more options. Bamboo is a stable material and has grown in popularity in recent years. Extremely stable and long-lasting, it is definitely meant for a more modern space. If you’re looking for a lighter wood, consider maple. Although it tends to grow yellow over time, the wood is hard and dent-resistant.
An alternative to solid wood flooring. Engineered wood, although not solid all the way through, is still considered hardwood. The main advantage of engineered wood flooring is that engineered solutions resist more effectively any fluctuations in temperature and moisture than solid wood. Plus, this type of flooring is built for high-traffic volume.\
