Installing a new floor can be a difficult process, partially because of the sheer number of options, ranging from the material used to the color choices. This is true in the home, but imagine if the decision also affected your employees and potential customers and if they were going to become actual customers. That might sound a little melodramatic, and obviously there are some qualifiers, like what kind of business you run, but do not underestimate the effect a great floor can have on your business. Most people want something that’s going to be cheap, because every business would love to save a couple of dollars wherever and whenever they can. Comfort is also something to take into consideration, as employees are more likely to be productive if they aren’t complaining about the pain in their feet. With that in mind, the flooring pros here at Ozburn-Hessey have put together a little primer about the commercial flooring options for you.
What Do You Need?
Let’s talk money. It is the most important thing in a business, because if it isn’t being made, then your business isn’t going to be around for a very long time. In most offices, carpet has been the longtime standard, and there is a reason for that. It’s relatively cheap, if you aren’t dealing with food it’s pretty easy to clean, and the more durable types stand up to heavy foot traffic. It’s extremely common for a reason, and it is something that we here at Ozburn-Hessey are happy to install if that’s what you’re looking for. There is another material that does pretty much everything carpet does, just at a lower cost. That material is linoleum, and it is quickly becoming one of the go-to flooring materials for commercial flooring.
Does it Fit?
It really just depends on the feel you are going for. If you want something to appear formal, then the flooring experts here at Ozburn-Hessey recommend a wide plank wooden floor with a dark finish. It might be a bit more expensive, but it is definitely worth every penny. It makes the room appear to be larger, thanks to the wider planks giving the impression of being less busy while the darker coloring and choice of wood gives it an old world feel, like we did inside the Country Music Hall of Fame. In older buildings, reclaimed wood flooring is a great option because it makes the inherent history literally right underneath you. A modern office might be better suited to bamboo flooring to highlight its commitment to preserving the environment.
The point is, there are so many options to choose from when it comes to commercial flooring, and Ozburn-Hessey is skilled with the design and installation of them all. All you need to do to step up your business’ presentation is give us a call, and we will handle the rest.
