When it comes to flooring there are so many wonderful options available today – but what is the most cost effective? Here’s a brief overview of your options, along with their pro’s and cons:
Carpets are still a favoured choice among business owners. Not only do the carpet tiles come in a variety of shades & styles these days, they are also cost effective and quick & easy to install.
Carpets play an important role in acoustics / sound absorption – so if you’re going to run a call centre – this is probably your best bet.
STOP – if you’re thinking of that yucky 1950’s plastic black & white checker blocks this is not what we’re talking about! We’re talking about the stuff that looks like laminate flooring, without the annoying sound effects that go with them. Vinyl flooring gets glued down, on top of that old yucky other vinyl….. or if you have a newly built space, it goes straight on top of the cement.
You get a really chic finish that is easy to clean & maintain, without your office sounding like a runway.
The cons: if you previously had carpets on the floor, the area may need to be screed levelled before you can stick down the vinyl.
Tiles are not a very popular choice for the entire area / large portion of an office space. Although they are still very easy to clean – the echoing effect is less than ideal for an office space.
