With the myriad choices for commercial flooring now available, it can be hard to choose what could work aesthetically in your space as well as practically. The biggest decision will come down to carpet or resilient flooring?
Carpeting works great if you are concerned about noise, and is usually the top choice when it comes to office spaces or hotels. The sound benefits cannot be replicated with resilient flooring. If you have decided that carpeting is the appropriate flooring for your space, next thing is choosing the style and method of installation. You can choose broadloom, or carpet tiles. Carpet tiles allow for a more unique installation, and near infinite design possibilities, mix and match different styles and colors, or create patterns with your carpet tiles. An appropriate subfloor without imperfections is a must.
If your space requires you to clean up frequent spills, or you have heavy foot traffic, consider a resilient flooring such as vinyl. Medical offices, hospitals, and schools typically rely on commercial flooring, whether vinyl or otherwise. Vinyl flooring comes in a variety of styles and patterns, and can even mimic wood flooring if you want to warm up your space but can’t have real wood floors. Some commercial spaces even choose to mix resilient flooring and carpeting, choosing to put carpet in office spaces or waiting rooms, and use resilient flooring in the areas where it is more appropriate.
