If you’re reading this, you probably acquired a new office space. Now that you have the place, the next step is figuring out how to design it.
While furniture, lighting, and space maximization are all important, flooring is an aesthetic you should also focus on. This reflects the atmosphere you want to project while also providing functionality.
But how would you know which type of flooring fits your business? Consider the following:
- Use of the space on which you’ll put your flooring
- Traffic the area will get
- The look you’re going for
- Your budget
With your answers ready, it’s time for you to know what your options are.
Tiles, once reserved for bathrooms and kitchens, have since proven its versatility and durability. That’s why it’s making its way in other parts of any space. A tile flooring company in California even said that “ceramic is dynamic.”
Tiles have varied designs, which give you plenty of option when considering the look you’re going for. Tiles can be placed almost anywhere. But make sure to consult the Porcelain Enamel Institute’s tile rating to know which type of tile is best for the amount of traffic that your space will get.
Carpets provide cushion and comfort for your feet. They can be made from wool, polyester, nylon or acrylics. Carpets also have varied designs which make this flooring easy to fit in any style. This option is perfect for a cozy space as it also provides noise insulation.
Carpets can easily get stained, but not easy to clean. For this, you might want to consider getting carpet tiles, which are easy to remove and clean.
Laminate flooring can emulate tile, hardwood, and stone floors, but at much lower costs. This flooring is durable and easy to clean. Because it comes with varied designs, it’s easy to fit in any space and style.
Additionally, laminate flooring is eco-friendly because it’s made from recycled natural resources.
Many other flooring options include hardwood, vinyl, cork, bamboo, and linoleum. Choosing the perfect flooring seems overwhelming because of the variety of choices, but it’s only a matter of knowing what you want and where you want it.
