Your home office is your haven for being focused, productive, and creative. You need an environment that’s conducive to your business activities and your comfort level there. Some of the qualities of ideal flooring for a home office include:
Professional: From seeing clients to setting the ideal stage for your own success, your office flooring should have a professional, polished look.
Comfortable: While your flooring should be slick and professional, it should also be warm and inviting. You should feel good while you’re working there and enjoy being in the environment. Clients who travel to see you should also immediately feel comfortable and at ease.
Easy to Maintain: You’re busy building and maintaining your business, so you’ll want a flooring type that’s easy to maintain.
Based on these criteria, the following are some of the top flooring types we recommend for a home office:
Wood is an excellent choice for those who desire a highly professional look and will be seeing clients in their office. It has an appealing, inviting quality that exudes warmth and class. It can last for decades and is fairly easy to maintain. Both solid and engineered hardwood can be ideal choices for a home office. However, some hardwoods can be on the pricier side.
A more affordable option is a laminate hardwood. Laminates give the look of wood without the higher price of hardwood or some engineered options. They are available in a range of color tones and grains and can fool the eye into believing they are real wood.
If a more serene and inviting atmosphere is desired, carpet can be an excellent choice even in commercial or business settings. Commercial grade carpet is attractive, resistant to wear, and comes in a large spectrum of styles, colors, patterns, and textures ideal for your tastes.
Offices that receive a lot of foot traffic or that have an entrance directly from the outdoors might benefit from a vinyl flooring choice. Vinyl is durable, easy to clean, and comes in a wide range of styles and looks. Vinyl can also be used to mimic the look of options like wood and tile, but with better moisture and stain resistance.
Yes, rubber! If you will be on your feet a lot in your workspace or want a highly durable option, rubber could be the ideal choice. Rubber flooring offers a lot of cushioning and soundproofing, and it’s also available in more styles and color options than you might have imagined.
