When it comes to selecting a flooring material, there are several types to choose from. However, before you make your selection, it’s best to weight the pros and cons of tiles, carpet, synthetic or even wood. Most of the time, persons find this job rather overbearing and time consuming, so why not let Hauglie’s Flooring do all of the daunting tasks for you. Read on as we dive into our list of the top 5 things that you should consider before selecting the best commercial flooring for your establishment.
It’s easy to want durability, ease of maintenance, and longevity to play a huge part in your flooring. However, there are still a couple of things that you’re missing out on.
- What Image And Feeling Are You Trying To Create?
If you didn’t already know, aesthetics is among the most important aspects when it comes to choosing a flooring material. Some materials are more inviting and they even absorb sound if you’re working with a quieter environment. Simply put, your flooring conveys the values and styles that are portrayed by your company.
If you’re working with the idea of sustainability, you might want to go with something like cork, reclaimed wood or even an eco-friendly product. It’s best to keep in mind that your flooring is another representation of your business.
- Decrease The Risks With Flooring That’s Safe For Both Staff And Customers
While materials such as terrazzo and marble are perfect when it comes to durability, they become extremely slippery when wet. This is even worse during snow and when dirty water is tracked indoors. So, before you select your materials, be sure to give some consideration to the natural weather during the year. Additionally, it’s also a great idea to determine your course of actions to keep the floor dry as you minimize accidents.
- Keep And Eye On Trends Without Forgetting That They Are Indeed Just Trends
Flooring trends change faster than we realize from woods, to larger tiles, to even the reintroduction of terrazzo. Hence, it’s important to choose something that not only survives the trends but is also stylish. If you’re planning on running a business that thrives on the flooring trend, you’ll be changing floors faster than clothes!
- What Happens If The Floors Get Damaged?
Some floors can be replaced and repaired much easier than others. Floors will become stained or scratched during its life. However, some people gravitate to carpet tiles. This can be said due to the fact that over 50% of people prefer carpets and they make up for half of the commercial sales each year.
If you’re looking for something that’s easy to replace individually, luxury vinyl tiles are another option and the entire floor doesn’t need to be changed. Additionally, wood also has the edge when it comes to fixing damages since they can be easily sanded and refinished. In the case of laminate, you’ll need to replace these often; however, it’s best to keep in mind that more than just the affected area will need to be replaced.
- Easy Maintenance
Depending on the material you choose, you may need to spend a lot of time cleaning and upkeeping. So, be prepared to commit to regular cleaning and maintenance. When floors become dirty and deteriorated, they leave your customers with a pretty bad impression of you and they even deter your employees from work. So, select patterns, colors and materials that are easier to clean, and refinish easily.
