With more and more people working from home it is more important than ever to create a home office space where you are productive. It is important to consider the needs of your space and how you plan to use it. No matter what, one of the most important design elements of a home office space is the flooring that you choose. You want your home office flooring to be high quality and hold up through time.
Home Office Flooring Ideas
Here are some factors to consider when choosing flooring for your home and the different types of flooring that are available.
Home Office Design Factors
The first thing that you need to consider is how often the room is going to be used. Who is going to be coming in and out of the room? Are you only going to use the office space during working hours? Are your children going to use the room for school work as well? The amount of traffic that is going to take place in the room should play an important role in choosing the flooring for your office.
Another thing that you need to consider is the furniture and especially the office chairs that are going to be in the space. Moving furniture can cause damage to the flooring. Most office chairs are on rollers so let us help recommend a durable flooring to you! The furniture you are using in your room is an important consideration when choosing the proper flooring.
Noise level is another consideration. Obviously, wood flooring is going to be louder than the carpet. However, there are some great laminate and solid hardwood floors that are softer and do not cause as much noise. This really depends on your personal preference.
Office Flooring Options
As mentioned, there are many choices when it comes to flooring. Here are some of the top choices for office flooring material.
Tile or Ceramic Flooring
Ceramic or vinyl tile makes a great choice for a home office. They are very durable and wear well. If you have them installed properly they will last for a very long time. It is important to make sure that the installation is correct because if not they might move when the floor settles and become uneven, this can cause them to crack.
There are many styles of tiles as well as colors, so you will be able to find this type of flooring that meets your style.
If you are looking for a less expensive option, laminate is a decent choice. We would recommend using a dense underlayment in order to lower the noise level.
Laminate is relatively easy to install and as mentioned very cost-effective. If you want a quick solution to your flooring problem, this could be a good choice. Plus, laminate comes in many different colors and designs, so it is possible to find a really neat design to add some flair to your home office space.
Hardwood floors are extremely popular for many reasons. They look great and they last for a very long time. Solid hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished over and over again, which makes these a very good investment.
Wood is offered in a variety of widths, finishes, and styles all worth the investment! Visit our showroom or call today for assistance.
