When choosing floor coverings for office spaces, both function and form should be a major consideration. Since each room has a different function, one flooring material is unlikely to work for your entire office — what works in a lobby may not necessarily work in your office kitchen.
Office flooring materials should be chosen room by room based on their function and design preferences, aligned with your budget and constraints.
Four factors to consider when choosing office flooring materials
Lobby and reception areas
Choose flooring that is both durable and attractive for your office’s lobby and reception area. The lobby is the first thing that clients, stakeholders, vendors, and new employees will see. As a result, your reception area flooring must make a good first impression. Additionally, it must be able to withstand heavy foot traffic.
Open office spaces and break rooms
The flooring in office areas must be attractive, absorb excess background noise and endure high levels of foot traffic. It has to match your facility’s design, and the cost of maintaining it has to be within your budget. In general office areas, durable, easy-to-maintain materials are best.
Conference rooms provide the backdrop for important meetings with clients, employees and stakeholders. Consequently, design should not go unnoticed in conference rooms — your flooring selection must make a good impression and match with a room’s overall design aesthetic. The durability of your flooring should always be considered when selecting it, but the main concern for conference rooms should be design because they generally receive less foot traffic than the common areas of your office.
Choose flooring for your office kitchen that is slip-, spill- and water-resistant. Spills in the kitchen are common, and cleanliness is essential, so it is imperative to have easy-to-clean and easy-to-maintain flooring.
