Commercial areas, such as offices, airports, schools, and hospitals, are high-traffic areas that require durable and long-lasting commercial flooring solutions. In this article we will list the best types of commercial flooring for your space, what we would recommend, and considerations to keep in mind. Below are some of the best types of commercial flooring solutions for high-traffic areas:
When it comes to durability and the combination of style and functionality, Terrazzo is a must. This flooring is a composite solution consisting of glass pieces, chips of marble, granite, and other materials. It looks stylish and is ideal for incorporating custom logo designs into your flooring.
Although Terrazzo flooring is aesthetically pleasing and extremely long-lasting, it is not a good flooring solution for people with a primitive budget. Generally speaking, Terrazzo is an expensive flooring solution for designers wanting to achieve that chic look. However, Terrazzo is out of the price range for many homeowners on a budget. Therefore, to achieve that same fashionable and chic look at half the price, concrete flooring is the best option.
Laminate Wood Flooring
One of the most aesthetically-pleasing commercial flooring options, laminate wood is beautiful and extremely easy to maintain. If you want your commercial space to look sleek, professional, and stylish, laminate wood flooring could be just what you need. Laminate flooring is resilient to spills, stains, and damage. What’s more, it is extremely easy to maintain, only needed a daily sweep and mop to stay in prime condition.
However, if you would like a commercial flooring that lasts far longer than laminate wood flooring and is not easily damaged by scratches and stains, choose concrete flooring. So durable it’s been used in industrial and commercial spaces for years, concrete flooring requires next to no maintenance and will stay scratch and stain-free for years.
Perfect for commercial kitchens, Quarry tile is long-lasting to extensive foot traffic, and resilient to foot traffic and grease build up. Made from hard-fired clay, Quarry tile is very affordable and will keep your commercial space stylish and functional. However, if you’re going to install Quarry tile, it’s important you maintain int properly by cleaning the floor daily and replacing any sections that wear out over time. If you don’t do this, your Quarry tiles will age faster.
Although Quarry tile is cost-effective and durable, it takes more maintenance than most other commercial flooring options. So, only install this flooring choice if you have the time to maintain it properly. If you do not have the time to keep up with the maintenance required for quarry tile, choose concrete flooring. Requiring the least upkeep of all commercial floor choices, concrete flooring is a fantastic option for those with busy lives.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury vinyl tile is a commercial flooring solution that has taken the flooring industry by storm because of its functionality, durability, and cost-effectiveness. Luxury vinyl tile is one of the most versatile flooring options available for commercial spaces and is ideal for kitchen environments, hospitals, airport lounges, and offices. If you want a cost-effective commercial flooring solution that won’t break the bank, luxury vinyl tile could be just what you’ve been looking for.
However, although vinyl tile is a popular choice for many, it does easily stain and become damaged. Therefore, requiring replacement fairly regularly. This can get very expensive. So, to avoid this problem, opt for concrete flooring instead. Made to last in even the busiest commercial areas, concrete flooring will not wear down, break, or become susceptible to stains. Instead, it will remain durable and functional, ideal for many years to come.
Rubber Flooring Solution
Rubber flooring is a popular option for commercial spaces such as hospitals and gyms as it is durable, resistant to wear and tear, and perfect for high-traffic areas. What’s more, the cushioned design of rubber flooring prevents the fatigue and also reduces the noise of people as they walk around.
While rubber flooring is a great solution for commercial areas, its rubbery smell can linger for a long while after installation. However, rubber flooring is especially easy to maintain, so is a great solution for commercial spaces. However, over time rubber can become damaged with stains, rips, or fading colours, requiring replacement which can be expensive. Concrete flooring, on the other hand, lasts for years without the need for replacement. Extremely difficult to damage, nearly impossible to stain, and extremely easy to maintain, concrete flooring is the ultimate solution for your commercial area. And what’s more, it is extremely cost-efficient!
A traditional flooring choice for many people, carpet tiles have been around for decades and are extremely functional. What’s more, they are easy to clean and a great soft-surface option. And to avoid the stress of spills and moisture on your carpet tiles, you can select waterproof designs. If you want a versatile and cost-effective commercial flooring solution, carpet tiles could be just what you need.
However, if liquids or foods are dropped on carpet tiles, they can become easily stained. So, if you require a more durable and easy-to-maintain flooring style, concrete flooring is just what you need. Unsusceptible to stains or damage, concrete flooring stays looking brand new for years to come – no matter how busy your commercial space is.
