When it comes to designing, wall color and furniture seem to get all the attention. But when you’re designing a commercial space, you want to give careful consideration to the type of commercial flooring you choose to install. Whether you’re designing a space for a large corporation or a small office, we’re offering insight into the different types of available commercial flooring and where they are most suited:
Carpet and carpet tile for noise reduction
If you’re looking for a flooring solution that will provide some noise insulation for your hotel or office, then you’ll want to stick with traditional carpet. Carpet tile offers a little more versatility than regular carpet. Because each tile is individually placed, you can choose a carpet pattern and option that suits your business’s culture and taste. You can also strategically place tiles as they become worn or stained instead of having to tear all the carpet out.
Vinyl floors for heavy foot traffic
There’s a reason hospitals and retail stores have vinyl floor. Vinyl floors are resilient, meaning they stand up to heavy foot traffic over time. They need to be properly installed in order to ensure resilience and resistance to scratches, scuffs, and other damage that can be caused by heavy traffic. Unlike carpet, stains are easily washed away on vinyl floors. Vinyl floors are available in several colors and designs, giving businesses the freedom to express themselves through resilient flooring.
Rubber floors for heavy traffic
Like vinyl flooring, rubber flooring is ideal for heavy-traffic commercial areas such as restaurants, offices, hospitals, or airports. Rubber floors are resistant to water and heat and are simple to maintain. In addition, rubber flooring is slip-resistant, sound-absorbent, and comfortable to walk on thanks to its cushiony-feel. It is available in a variety of textures and colors so you don’t need to sacrifice style for practicality.
Classic wood floors
Wood floors are classic and never go out of style, making them a great option for pretty much any office, retail, or hotel space that wants a clean, elegant look. While they can suffer from water damage, wood floors overall are durable and easy to maintain.
Of course, you don’t need to limit your flooring. For instance, area rugs are one way to include some of the comfort and elegance of designer carpet into an area that has a vinyl or rubber floor. Or you might choose different types of flooring for different areas of your business. As an example, you may choose a wood floor for your hotel lobby and carpet for your guests rooms.
