Hello Mr Physio!
A different type of post from you
Since you are describing my *dream* clinic (230sqm!!!), I would like to put in my 2 cents worth (it used to be more until the recent property downturn!)
* Floor coverings
- Commercial grade carpet. The best is woollen carpet (so i am told - happy to be wrong!). I do not know where you are (?Country Vic??) but it is nice for your clients to lie on and commercial grade means it won't look worn out. Downside is can't do dry needling since regs in NSW say you must have a hard surface. Also, vacuuming is a tiresome job.
- Vinyl. Nice, easy to clean (get an ENJO mop - just add water and go for it!), noisy. Lots of echos. Versatile since you can put down rubber mats for weights area and mats for lying down on. My choice for the big areas.
Otherwise sounds like somethiing I would kill for! Do you own the building? If so, good on you!
