A lot of people don’t realize this, but how a floor looks can greatly influence the overall look of a room. This is one of the reasons why businesses invest on their floors – it can set a mood depending on how they want their clients to feel when they walk inside a place.
Commercial floor coverings refer to coverings that are used in businesses and other non-residential structures. These are different from residential floor coverings in such a way that you have to consider additional factors when choosing them such as maintenance, budget and aesthetic appeal among many others.
The Different Types of Commercial Floor Coverings
There are different kinds of commercial floor coverings to choose from. One of the most popular choices is carpets.
Carpets are usually chosen for their visual appeal. It has this luxurious feel that makes a place look grander that it really is. The disadvantage of using carpet is that it easily gets dirty, especially in high-traffic areas. It can also be a pain to have it cleaned, as you’d require a professional to do so.
Linoleum and VCT (Vinyl Composition Tile) are types of laminate and vinyl flooring. Although not as luxurious and visually appealing as carpet and wood, these are much more practical choices – making them popular among the retail sector. They are low-maintenance, stain-resistant and durable too. What people most like about these is that they come in different designs. They even come in tile or hardwood pattern, allowing you to replicate a much more expensive look without hurting your pocket.
If you want to go for durable commercial surface coverings, I suggest choosing stone commercial flooring such as marble, concrete and slate. What’s really great about these is that they’re stylish and their look never goes out of style.
Another advantage is that they’re super easy to clean, plus they’re durable and low-maintenance too. The only disadvantage is that they can cost quite a bit more than other commercial surface coverings, but because they can last for a really, really long time, you can trust that it will take years and years before you have to replace them.
Rubber as Commercial Floor Coverings?
While rubber is not the best option if you’re looking for something with aesthetic purposes, it’s actually a great option if function’s what you’re after.
Rubber as commercial flooring has served sporting facilities, schools and hospitals really well. They are chosen for being naturally hygienic, waterproof, easy to clean and for being stain-resistant.
Rubber is also known for being resilient, making it a very good choice for high-traffic areas.
Greener Commercial Floor Coverings Options
With more and more people caring for the environment, emphasis on sustainability continues to grow as well. People are getting more aware on the importance of recycling and using materials that are easy to replace.
Of course, the commercial surface coverings industry has adjusted to give their clients more options. We now have cork and bamboo commercial parquet to choose from as well. These are safer for the environment, although the downside is that they can be quite expensive.
