Have you ever wondered why the floors in most casinos look like some type of bad joke? Why the beautiful multi-billion dollar resorts would put such awful second-rate flooring in their building?
As with most everything in Las Vegas there is a reason. The first and most obvious reason for the busy designs is traffic. Las Vegas sees more than 35 million people a year, incidentally about the population of Canada, that is a lot of people walking and spilling all over the floors. The busier the design the less likely a flaw will stand out.
The other reason, and probably the more important reason for the Casino, is the psychological effect busy designs have on the human brain. Busy designs are hard on the human eye, causing the viewer to look away. It is the same reason why so many of the casinos have high ceilings; it causes the viewer to look away from the dizzying heights. So if you aren’t looking down and you aren’t looking up, where are you looking? Straight ahead where the casino has all it’s offers, such as slots, table games or even show tickets.
Just another reason why you just have love Las Vegas. Who would have thought that Las Vegas casinos would invent the use of gaudy carpets? Ingenious.
