How to Choose the Right Floors for Your Office
When it comes to your office design scheme, flooring might just be the one detail that pulls it all together. As one of the most visible parts of your office, it can create a cohesive look and feel. However, flooring is more than just a design detail, it is a functional part of your office. As such, it needs to be both beautiful and useful. Choosing the right flooring for your commercial space is a big job.
At Blackrock Industrial, our expert flooring contractors can help you explore the various considerations when choosing the best flooring for your office. Here are some of the top concerns we see with our commercial clients.
How busy is your office?
A busy office with constant, heavy foot traffic has significantly different needs than a quiet office with minimal traffic. Your flooring should reflect that. Busy offices need durable flooring that can stand up to heavy use without getting scratched or worn or requiring constant maintenance.
Concrete floors are a good choice in these environments. Concrete is a durable flooring material that is not prone to scuffs, scratches, or wear-and-tear. It is suitable for high-traffic areas and offers a variety of customization options, including sealants and coatings.
Care and Maintenance
How much time do you want to spend maintaining your office flooring?
A floor that looks fantastic but takes a lot of time to maintain might not be the best option. However, you don’t have to settle for an unappealing floor simply to get one that’s easier to manage. Metallic epoxy floors can be used to create flooring that looks like marble, stone, or granite. Polished concrete can be made to recreate the look of another natural flooring, such as stone or marble. Both epoxy flooring systems and concrete floors are easy to maintain and built to last at often a fraction of the cost of some of the pricier materials.
What kind of workspace do you have?
The type of flooring you need can vary wildly depending on the purpose of your workspace. If your workers sit most of the day, their ideal flooring will look and feel different from workers who will be standing or walking most of the day. High-traffic offices might need slip-resistant surfaces with built-in safety features.
In these environments, epoxy can be a great choice. Epoxy floors allow for incorporating a variety of additives to create more traction and slip-resistance for greater safety.
The function of your office flooring might be among the most important consideration, but the look of the flooring also matters. It can be your clients’ first impression of your business and a reflection of your brand. You might also want a look that is on-trend or more classically beautiful.
