It can be difficult to choose flooring for commercial properties. This is because commercial floors have to be the perfect blend of style and practicality. Laminate, LVT, vinyl and carpet are all great options for different reasons. However, if you’ve settled on carpet as your flooring of choice, there are a few things to think about first.
Here at Affordable Flooring Solutions, we want to make the process of choosing and installing commercial carpet tiles as easy as possible. To help you out, we’ve put together a few things to think about before settling on your commercial carpet tiles.
What type of carpet do I want?
This is probably the most important decision when it comes to choosing commercial carpet tiles. Essentially, there are three types of carpet- wool, nylon and polypropylene. The type you choose is very dependent on the space and type of commercial environment.
Wool carpets are more luxurious than nylon and therefore more expensive. They are also more durable than nylon. Wool carpets are warm and offer effective insulation. If you are looking for a luxurious feel to your property, wool carpets could be the perfect choice. However, wool carpets don’t come in a huge range of styles/colours which is something to consider. They can also be a little tricky to maintain and so are not the best choice for busy properties.
Nylon carpets are cheaper but do not come with such a soft, luxurious feel. Nylon does, however, come in a range of colours and patterns.
Finally, you could choose a polypropylene carpet. These carpets are made from synthetic fibres that are soft but very durable.
What property am I installing the commercial carpet into?
Different properties will need different kinds of carpets. If you have a commercial property that experiences a lot of foot traffic, a low maintenance, durable carpet is a good choice. Choosing a busy, lighter pattern will help disguise dirt and be lower maintenance. Lighter coloured carpets will also help make your space feel airy and bright.
Rental properties, for example, suit light coloured, durable carpets. In this way, they can be easily maintained whilst looking timeless.
Properties that experience less foot traffic can opt for darker, neutral tones. These darker colours will help make the space seem warmer.
