First impressions are important, and the interior design details of your commercial building or office space can leave a lasting one on customers and visitors. Choose the perfect flooring to make your project pop aesthetically, but also serve a practical purpose.
Commercial flooring comes in all types, such as vinyl, concrete, carpet, and even rubber. Each offers different advantages, levels of durability and price points.
With more than 1,000 commercial projects in a variety of industries under our belts, the building experts at CF Jones Construction can help you choose the best commercial flooring for your project. Let’s examine your top choices.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
A big trend in commercial flooring, Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) comes in a variety of designs and styles, including ceramic, hardwood and natural stone looks. It gives you the look of a more expensive flooring, but at a lower cost. LVT is virtually maintenance free, with no waxing necessary.
LVT can be glued down or floated with padding underneath. It’s highly durable and scratch-resistant, making it ideal for high-traffic areas, but avoid using it in areas with heavy equipment or heavy furniture, such as salon or dentist chairs.
Commercial Carpet Tile
Think tile, but in carpet squares. Companies with a large space to fill find carpet tile to be very affordable and easy to maintain. Watch for more design options to enter the market, and create your own carpet tile flooring design in any shaped room.
Keep a stock of replacement carpet tile squares in storage to easily replace one when it gets stained or damaged. A high-quality carpet tile will withstand heavy foot traffic and its easy installation process makes it a good buy for many commercial projects.
If you need flooring for a high-traffic area where employees and customers spend a lot of time standing on their feet, rubber flooring may be a good option for its shock-absorbing qualities. Rubber flooring now comes in a variety of colors, patterns and textures, and it’s gaining in popularity.
Rubber flooring is highly durable and affordable, but it can sometimes be difficult to clean and stains easily. Plain rubber can be slippery when wet, but a non-slip finish can be applied to rubber flooring to prevent slips and falls. This eco-friendly material also absorbs sound better than most flooring materials.
Other Eco-Friendly Flooring Options
Other eco-friendly materials like concrete, hardwood and natural stone also can be used in commercial flooring projects. Each material provides a high level of durability, but can get pricey when used for large areas of flooring.
Polished and stained concrete can give your business a unique look, and concrete is relatively easy to keep clean. Hardwood floors add warmth and elegance to any room, but may need to be stripped, stained and sealed on a regular basis. Natural stone livens up a space, but needs to be sealed periodically to protect its surfaces from stains and scratches.
Do you want your commercial project to be warm and inviting, modern and sleek, or a combination of all of the above? The best commercial flooring can make your project pop. Let CF Jones Construction show you how to leave a lasting impression.
