What to Consider When Choosing a Commercial Flooring Type

Creating a workspace that is simultaneously functional and welcoming is crucial when remodeling your commercial property.  However, while that is generally a universal need, the type of flooring needed to achieve that can vary widely based on a variety of factors such as location and industry. No matter what you need your commercial flooring to achieve for you in your remodeled office, there are four key things to look for when choosing which commercial flooring type is perfect for you. 

Durability & Maintenance

One of the most important aspects to consider when choosing an appropriate commercial flooring type is your expected level of foot traffic and durability needs. Certain flooring materials stand up better to high levels of foot traffic, so you should make this a prominent factor in your selection. If you expect high foot traffic in your office space or a certain section of it, it’s recommended that you opt for materials such as hardwood, commercial carpet tiles, or synthetic materials such as rubber or vinyl. If high foot traffic is not a concern in your commercial space, then you can consider less durable material like porcelain tiles, linoleum, or commercial carpets. 

Color & Style

Another important factor in your commercial flooring decision is color and style. This is often the first thing that companies consider when they start to think about flooring. Above all, most property managers want a flooring solution that will match the design of their space and enhance its overall appearance. Materials like hardwood or wood-like synthetic materials offer a more classic and sophisticated appearance. Commercial carpet creates a warm, inviting atmosphere that also offers practicality through its sound absorption. Carpet tiles are also a popular choice due to their potential for versatile designs such as mosaics and unique color combinations. Rubber and vinyl flooring are perfect for hospitals, gyms, and other commercial spaces where functionality is much more important than style or cohesive design.


Of course, you always have to ensure that whatever flooring type you choose is within your allocated budget. Although design and durability are important aspects to consider, even the ideal flooring choice can be out of reach due to an impractical cost. When researching flooring types, make sure to factor in warranty costs, installation costs, and maintenance costs. Some flooring options such as hardwood are more expensive and high-maintenance than others, so choose an option that balances your desired aesthetic appeal with the provided budget. It’s also advised that you choose a lifetime warranty option so that you can protect your commercial flooring investment for as long as possible.
