There are a variety of options to choose from when picking new commercial flooring; vinyl, wooden and carpet are some popular choices. Each come with their own benefits and drawbacks, so we have some tips for when it comes to choosing.
Choose carpet for a welcoming, quiet working environment
Carpet flooring creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere, inviting workers and visitors into your commercial space. Best suited for office environments, carpet can look the part as well as provide an appropriate atmosphere for office workers. The soft flooring provides noise reduction from the footfall of an office, creating an easier environment to work in. However, carpets are the most susceptible to stains and require more maintenance than other types of floor.
Choose vinyl for an easy to clean, professional look for frequently used spaces
Vinyl flooring also offers noise reduction and is soft underfoot, and is easier to clean and maintain. It is can also provide a more professional feel for different commercial environments than carpet, such as in the lobby of a building or hallways. Vinyl can also mimic the look of more expensive or unpractical options such as stone and wood.
Wood flooring is great for a rustic, aesthetically pleasing commercial space
Wood flooring can give a more rustic or homely feel for a commercial space, popular with start-up companies looking to capture this feeling. The drawback is that unlike carpet and vinyl, wooden flooring is loud to walk on, making it more unsuitable for a quieter environment where concentration is key. If the aesthetics of your commercial space takes preference over its suitability as a quiet working environment, then wood is often the popular choice.
