A floor is the walking surface of a room or vehicle. Floors vary from simple dirt in a cave to many-layered surfaces using modern technology. Floors may be stone, wood, bamboo, metal, or any other material that can hold a person's weight.

The levels of a building are often referred to as floors although a more proper term is storey.

In an industrial or industry context, "floor" refers to a flat and horizontal surface, usually made of concrete, steel, or wood, that serves as the base for a building or structure.

Examples of floors in an industrial context include:

  • Concrete flooring in factories, warehouses, and industrial buildings
  • Steel grating or bar flooring in areas that require high strength and durability
  • Epoxy-coated flooring in areas that require chemical resistance and easy cleaning
  • Raised access flooring in data centers and computer rooms to allow for the passage of air and electrical cables
  • Mezzanine flooring in warehouses to increase storage space
  • Slip-resistant flooring in areas that are wet or slippery, such as food processing plants and commercial kitchens.
