How to choose the best office flooring?
Things to consider when shopping for office flooring:
Evaluate the Necessary Durability
When we pick out our desired flooring option we want to make sure it meets our durability standards. Flooring is an investment and you want your office floor to last a long time. Certain types of flooring can wear or fade in high traffic areas, while some other flooring options stain easily or are easily damaged when exposed to moisture repeatedly. An example of a high traffic area is a lobby or reception area. These areas are bound to have lots of people walking through. An example of a low traffic area would be a conference room, where you have fewer people walking through and don’t have to consider the extra wear and tear. The conference room might have someone spill a cup of coffee on the floor though, so considering all factors in, you would want to make sure the flooring is still stain resistant, if not very durable.
Determine the Required Cost of Maintenance
Regardless what flooring option you chose for your office flooring, it will need to regularly be cleaned and have any other maintenance in regards to stains or damage. It is important to calculate the time and cost you will have to invest in professional floor cleaning or repairs, so that you are confident you can afford to maintain your office flooring over time. Some examples of flooring maintenance are; fixing broken tiles, professional carpet cleaning, repairing vinyl discoloration and repairing hardwood dents.
Selecting the Right Colour and Texture
As with many living spaces, flooring is the final brush stroke on the canvas which happens to be your new office space. Choosing the best look to open up your office and make statement can be important to many. Considering the style of flooring as an afterthought is a mistake as the flooring choice can change the design of the room significantly. Ask yourself if you want a vibrant flooring, something more sleek, or traditional and think hard about whether your flooring choice fits that design need.

Their team will help you make the best choice for your office flooring needs.
Considering Health and Safety
When it comes to selecting a good flooring option for your office, we tend to forget the basic top priority, safety and health. Having an office floor that could become too slippery and create a safety hazard with falls, would be disastrous. Making sure you get non-slip flooring is essential in making sure that your workplace is safe from an avoidable accident. Some flooring is also more comfortable for standing on, for employees that might have to stand for extended periods of time. Another culprit to flooring is mildew, dust mites and mold. No one wants to deal with these health irritants in their work place, as it can cause health issues with time. Certain flooring options also contain materials that emit volatile organic compounds (VOC), which some people might find they are sensitive to. There are environmentally friendly options instead that use cork.
Sound and Noise Absorption
Office spaces can have many sounds and noises that can be absorbed with the right type of flooring. Some office flooring will actually make noise travel easier as sound waves can easily bounce off the surface, so selecting an appropriate flooring type that can help cut down on the sounds that might be plaguing your office space is a must.
Some Examples of Popular Flooring Types
Hardwood flooring is a classic choice that can help make your office space standout from the rest. Hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished if there is any damage done to the surface over time. The luxurious look and feel of hardwood adds a wow factor to your office space that can be great for an office that has clients come in to visit. There are a lot of different types of wood types that can change the durability and price of your flooring. Hardwood flooring can be expensive to install so making sure it is within your budget to install and maintain is important. You can install the flooring yourself but it can difficult and not recommended for people not familiar with floor instillation or tools.

Engineered hardwood flooring
Engineered hardwood flooring is great alternative to hardwood. It offers more durability than hardwood and tends to be less expensive depending on the top layer of wood used. The fact that most people can’t tell the difference between solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring can give you some breathing room if you are worried about appearances. The only downside to engineered over solid, is that it can only be refinished a couple of times since the top layer is so thin. You can find more expensive quality engineered hardwood flooring with a top layer that is thicker to give you more refinishing room if damage occurs. Installation of this flooring can also be done relatively easy as it can be purchased as clickable boards, cutting down on the total cost.
