Most Creative: HTC Commercial Flooring installed custom floors at the kid’s center called Treetop Escape at The Arc Center located in West Chicago, IL. The goal was to create a jungle-like experience while using custom-printed Forbo sheet goods on the floors. To really make it convincing, we used the Forbo sheet goods and had a projector installed in the ceiling to show images onto the floors to create moving motions and give the feeling of running water. We installed the Forbo sheet goods using Taylor Resolute adhesives under the Forbo to ensure this flooring is not going anywhere. We knew this floor had to withstand all the foot traffic and sticky fingers and last a lifetime, therefore sheet goods are a great option, as it is easy to clean and have a high lifeline. The goal of this project was to create a fun adventurous space for kids to play and use their imagination, while also giving their parents a quick break. HTC had such a fun experience watching the creative process come to life, by turning this room into a real Treehouse Escape.
