Creation Cottage Gets a Luxurious Makeover with a Little Help from Stories Flooring

Written by: Yarl Christie

Here at Stories Flooring, we love helping our customers find the perfect floor to tell their story. Recently, we helped to transform a new salon in time for its grand opening.

Creation Cottage is a brand-new, home-based hair salon in Leeds, run by experienced hair extension technician Marjan Beig. Taking on board her prior experience, Marjan wanted the salon to look fresh, welcoming, and homely. She knew her choice of flooring would greatly impact customer experience. 

After discussing the needs of the business and the look she was aiming for with our friendly team, a Stone Polymer Composite (SPC) floor was chosen.

Talking about the new floor, Marjan states:

“As a previous salon owner, I’ve worked at salons with tile, laminate and vinyl flooring. None of them felt as homely and unique as real wood. I wanted to create a fresh, chic, and feminine environment that would give my customers a relaxing and positive experience. Stories Flooring advised me to use SPC, so I opted for the Bentley Portofino Rigid Core Voyager Oak. 

It was exactly what I was looking for, the layout is just perfect. It’s created such a beautiful ambience within the salon, and I’ve received a lot of compliments from my clients. This proves I made the best decision with the help of the Stories Flooring team.”

SPC flooring is one of the toughest types of flooring on the market. Not only does it offer the look of real wood, but it also provides excellent durability. The Bentley Portofino Rigid Core range is naturally water and fire resistant, making it an excellent choice for businesses. 

The core in SPC flooring is typically made up of around 60% calcium carbonate (limestone), polyvinyl chloride and plasticizers. This gives it an extremely hard-wearing design. It copes well with high levels of daily foot traffic, retaining its brand-new looks for years to come.

The Bentley Portofino Rigid Core Voyager Oak was an ideal fit for Creation Cottage. The salon has a closed-in floor plan. This meant it needed a floor that would open the space to create a more inviting ambience. The natural, light design of the floor that was chosen helped to accomplish this, while also adding elegance and warmth to the space.

Marjan is thrilled with her new floor, explaining:

“Hair extensions are such a long and delicate procedure. It can be boring for clients when they have it done within a home-based setting. That’s why I wanted to make sure my clients had more of ‘an experience’ when they visited my salon. I knew the right flooring was crucial towards achieving this.”

Customers love the new floor and the overall design of the salon. It just goes to show how much of a difference the right flooring can make.
