Choosing the Right Material for Your Commercial Flooring
There are two main priorities to consider if you are looking to replace your current commercial flooring UK wide. Firstly, you need to source flooring that reflects your business and is in keeping with the design and style of other aspects of your company. Secondly, the flooring must be fit for purpose. This includes offering value for money in terms of maintenance and longevity.
Laminate flooring is one of the most popular choices for commercial flooring. Commercial laminate flooring is easier to maintain than wood, and is just as durable, if not more so. Its elegant appearance makes it ideal for offices, meeting spaces, and guest reception areas. Retail outlets can also benefit from this flooring. It is capable of dealing with even the heaviest footfall when the right strength grade is purchased. Laminate provides a professional look and finish to the areas in which it is used. The range of shades that are available means that it is easy to match your commercial flooring to your existing décor, or to create a whole new look. Traditional wooden flooring remains a popular alternative to laminate flooring and has many of the same advantages. It also benefits from the fact that it can be stained in a variety of finishes and can even be painted if desired. Wooden flooring requires maintenance, including being periodically sanded and restrained. Wood commercial flooring London and beyond can be more expensive to fit as well, and harder to replace if there are any problems later on.
Wood and laminate are not the only options available to you for commercial flooring UK. Carpets, vinyl flooring, rubber, and safety flooring options are also available. Carpets look great when newly laid and can add warmth and a sense of comfort to the space where they are used. Carpets are the preferred choice for many offices and meeting spaces but are also used in retail and department stores because of the sense of welcome they provide. Carpet can be hardwearing, if the right type is used by your flooring contractors, however it requires regular cleaning and sweeping to keep it in top condition. Spills need to be removed quickly to stop staining, and care should be taken if choosing carpet for areas adjacent to exterior doors. These areas are susceptible to the environment elements outside of the building, potentially causing staining, watermarks and quicker wear than in other areas. Vinyl is often the best choice because it is extremely durable and waterproofing, which makes it easy to keep clean. Luxury vinyl options mean that there is no compromise on style, safety or durability. This makes vinyl flooring extremely cost-effective. It is also available in any number of patterns and colours, making it easy for you to choose flooring options that visually represent your business and your vision.
Whichever type of commercial flooring UK wide you choose, it is important to hire the right contractors to provide and fit the flooring. Poorly laid flooring creates a poor impression of your businesses, as well as being a potential trip hazard for employees, customers and clients. Ensure you thoroughly research the company that you are considering, ensuring they have the necessary skills and experience.
