Choosing the right office flooring for your business will help you to create the best possible working environment and increase productivity among your employees. If you’re looking for office flooring, make sure you consider durability, acoustics, slip-factor and lifespan when making your decision.

Think about durability

When choosing your office flooring, it’s important to consider how durable you need it to be. For example, if your business gets a lot of foot traffic—like a restaurant or retail space—you may want something that’s very durable.

Standing all day can also be tough on the human body, however. If you work in an industry where staff stand for eight hours a day, consider office flooring options like Modular Carpet Tiles that can provide cushion and comfort while reducing fatigue from standing. Alternatively, if your workers spend most of their time sitting at desks and behind computers, they might prefer a vinyl or rubber floor.

If you have specific requirements for your industry and need some help to find a durable solution that works for both your staff and your wallet, we recommend consulting an expert.

Is there a slip risk?

Taking into account the risks presented to staff is important when thinking about your office flooring. The risk of slips, trips and falls can be eliminated with floor coverings such as Modular Carpet Tiles that have a permanent and robust non-slip backing. Modular Carpet Tile floors are incredibly versatile; they can be installed anywhere from schools to hotels and offices.

Consider the lifespan

When it comes to the life expectancy of a floor, it depends on factors such as office traffic, hygiene and any extreme conditions it might have to endure. However, vinyl floors are versatile and great for long term use, available in different durabilities that will last between 5 and 25 years. Vinyl floors can be easily cleaned with regular sweeping or vacuuming, making them simple to maintain over the course of decades.
