Choosing flooring for the office

When choosing flooring for your office consider what use each area has, and whether you need a hard, resilient or soft surface underfoot.

Will it need to be hardwearing? How easy should it be to maintain? Your choices for office floors will also depend on the decoration budget, the size of each floor space, and the image you are conveying to your clients.

Foyer or reception area

This area is where the client gets their first impression of your business. Flooring in this area can be expansive and impressive or warm and welcoming.

Hard floors: For impressive hard floors choose marble, stone, or polished concrete, which, while dramatic, can be easily cleaned and maintained.

Timber Floors: Polished floorboards are low key and welcoming, while a business emphasising all-fashioned values might make its point with a section of parquetry.

Resilient surfaces such as vinyl, linoleum, or cork can stand out in the foyer with strong colours and striking patterns.

Board rooms and managerial offices

Choose a neutral toned carpet (link to carpet article) in wool or a synthetic/wool blend in a cable Saxony style that looks good but can take the wear.

Open-plan floors and cubicles

A hard wearing neutral toned nylon carpet (link to carpet article) in a loop or Saxony style is a good choice. Other options are vinyl tiles or sheeting, and cork tiles or sheeting (link to cork article)

Utility Areas

For areas such as filing rooms, photocopier and printer areas, where the look of the floor is not so important, but durability is, polypropylene carpets (link to carpet article) are relatively inexpensive and are long wearing. Alternatively, choose resilient flooring such as vinyl, which is easy to clean and maintain.

Kitchen and bathrooms

To avoid workplace accidents and for ease of cleaning in areas where water and food and drink will be spilled, choose vinyl  or tiles (link to tile floor article)
