Commercial flooring styles are constantly evolving, so it is important for us at Garmon & Company as professional flooring contractors to keep up with changes in the industry and client demands.
We’ll take a look at the latest commercial flooring trends to keep an eye on as we start 2020, discuss why they are relevant and how our team can help you achieve each trending floor style.
1. Luxury Vinyl Tile
LVT is becoming more common in commercial settings for clients who want to create a less commercial and more comfortable feel in designated areas. This is most commonly applied to break rooms and common spaces.
LVT is a strong choice that lasts under heavy traffic, although it does require regular cleaning and maintenance compared to low maintenance choices like polished concrete.
2. Polished Concrete Floors
Polished concrete fits the style of new purpose-built commercial buildings, looks stylish, and offers functional benefits.
This material is an ideal choice for high traffic areas because unlike carpet and other types of flooring, concrete won’t wear out. It also requires less maintenance than other flooring types.
Part of its current appeal and the reason it is growing in popularity is due to a long lifecycle, making it good value by saving on future replacement and maintenance costs.
3. Natural Stone Becoming Less Common
There is no denying that natural stone flooring such as marble and granite can look incredible, especially in entrance or lobby areas.
However, this type of flooring does require more maintenance than many other types of flooring and this is a major reason for a decline in popularity. The current trend is for lower maintenance flooring options that are more cost-effective and practical over the life cycle.
For those clients who are willing to invest and maintain a natural stone material, there is no doubt that it is still a great choice that delivers an amazing aesthetic.
4. Carpeted Offices
As we have mentioned above, LVT and concrete have become more popular in common and high traffic areas, often replacing carpet.
Despite this carpet is still a popular choice particularly for individual offices. Carpet is a warmer material capable of absorbing sound and works well in private offices creating a welcoming and quiet space to work.
