Four Things to Consider When Installing New Floors

Floor installation can seem like a costly and overwhelming endeavor. But thanks to Ozburn-Hessey, it can be cost efficient and simple. The choices and things to consider can be often overwhelming, but if you use Ozburn-Hessey as a resource and you follow the following considerations, it’s sure to be a project you’ll come to enjoy.

Traffic -- This is incredibly important to figure out before you install new flooring. Is the space going to hold a lof of foot traffic? If so, what kind? Will it be walked on with high heels or tennis shoes? The type of hardwood, carpet or vinyl can be contingent on this factor. If there is hustle and bustle going through the space, Ozburn-Hessey can direct you toward a material that is durable and long-lasting.

Everyday Use -- The use of hardwood, carpet or vinyl can often be determined by the purpose of the space. For example, if it’s for an office, choosing a carpet can decrease sound. If it's a museum like the Country Music Hall of Fame, hardwood would look great. If it’s for a medical practice, vinyl or rubber flooring is typically preferred. Knowing the space’s primary use can make your decision easier.

Tone & Style -- Tone and style is often a harder vision to pin down. But just like any other decor, floors reflect a commercial space’s tone or message. For some business owners, the tone is very important; for others, not so much, but it’s still worth considering. Not only will it help you decide what your priorities are, but it will help you narrow down your choices leaving you with a less daunting endeavor.

Budget -- Your budget is typically what drives the decision for floor installation. If you have a larger budget, there are more options to consider when choosing floors. If you have a smaller budget, your choices are more limited. Ozburn-Hessey has a large catalogue of options available for any price range.

Make choosing your floor fun! There’s a hardwood, carpet or vinyl for any space you might have. If you consider the tone of the room, the use, traffic and your budget, finding a floor will be easy.
