Whether you’re furnishing your office, hotel, school or other commercially rented property, you should start with choosing the right flooring.

There are many factors that make up an ideal flooring, including the environment of the space and how often it will used. We’ve put together our top tips on how to choose the right flooring for your commercial property.

The Environment

The purpose of the commercial property is a large part of considering flooring options. For example, hotels and pubs may be looking for a completely different flooring when compared to an office or school.

Will the flooring encounter a high number of people? Places like hallways and lobbies are likely to have heavy foot traffic. The use of luxury vinyl or laminate flooring is increasingly popular and is a great alternative to using more costly options like real wood, stone or ceramic.

Practicality & Maintenance

You should choose a flooring that requires little maintenance to limit any further expenses. Commercial flooring can be a costly investment, so it’s important to ensure it includes all practical needs.

Think about the individual rooms that should be approached specifically; think about noise disturbance of certain floorings like wood. This could mean a potential change further down the line and further expenses.

Safety First

Choosing a commercial flooring type means you are responsible for following the correct safety guidelines. This is particularly needed in areas like bars, kitchens and bathrooms where the potential of slipping is high.

A safe and ideal flooring for commercial properties should be anti-slip, have a watertight surface, be easy to clean and hygienic and be resilient.
