Whether you’re building out new commercial space or renovating the space you have, choosing the right flooring is an important decision. Your floor may have to withstand heavy traffic, last a long time, be easy to clean, and be an economic choice. So, how do you choose?

Make a List of Priorities

Start by making a list of priorities. What is most important to you. Is it the budget? Is it safety? Is it the ability to keep the flooring clean? Or maybe it sound-deadening factors or the environmental-friendliness of the product or how quickly you can get it installed.

Think about this before consulting a flooring professional, otherwise this will be the first question they will ask.

Safety and Traction

Softer floors have more traction than harder floors. More traction spells better safety. Be sure to consider safety in your decision, especially for very high traffic areas.

Color, Texture and Design

There are many more choices in flooring than there were even 10 years ago. However, depending on what colors you have in mind, there are more colors available in some types of flooring than others.

With certain types of flooring tiles, like linoleum, it’s even possible to inlay sophisticated patterns and designs.

Consider Maintenance

Different types of flooring require different types of maintenance with different tools or equipment. Some floors are easier to clean than others. Definitely factor in your maintenance budget when deciding on a floor choice.

By the way, we offer flooring maintenance in the same areas where we do business (see above). So, feel free to discuss that with us if you don’t already have maintenance staff in place.
