Common Functional Flooring Options
We have substantial experience successfully helping property owners and managers review the broad range of choices available and we want to offer some general rules of thumb for various applications.
Infection control, biological containment and resiliency balanced with smooth transitions, rollability and slip resistance tend to be the key factors for flooring decisions and based on facility area needs a combination of surfaces such as no-wax sheet and tile products, including rubber, linoleum, sheet vinyl, and vinyl tile dominate in healthcare.
Maintenance,durability and budget are the primary decision factors. Vinyl composite tile, porcelain, linoleum, broadloom, and carpet tiles are often specified for school and college projects. Terrazzo and polished concrete are often used in main-floor public spaces, and natural wood and rubber are typically specified in gyms and other recreational areas.
Retail and restaurants have more flexibility in budget, function and maintenance due to branding and aesthetics driving most decisions, thus more latitude and a greater selection of product choices are available. One key theme to keep in mind – unlike other commercial sectors, the competitive nature of retail requires consistently attracting new and return customers and often leads to frequent aesthetic and functional updates. The sector’s most popular product types are carpet tile, natural stone tile, hardwood and engineered wood. Polished concrete, LVT, and porcelain tile can be found as well.
As in most types of commercial buildings, there are several functional purposes within a larger project. The boardroom requires a very different overall presentation than the copy room. Company identity, client comfort, durability, ease of maintenance and even sound dampening all play key roles when choosing office flooring. We have helped many businesses choose and install a broad array of surfaces in the workplace: solid hardwood, laminate, vinyl tile, carpet, carpet tile and even cork.
