- Carpet tile is a creative, durable option for those who want a bit of creativity in their commercial project. Try to get a larger carpet tile; a smaller carpet tile will make the room look smaller than it really is.
- Traditional hardwood is a no-go when it comes to commercial projects, because it can scuff and scratch easily. Instead, consider engineered hardwood for your commercial project, as it is also FSC-certified.
- Got a busy office? Consider the option used by hospitals and colleges nationwide: rubber.
- If you work in an industry where there’s a lot of moisture in your place of business (for example, a grocery store), make absolutely sure that you waterproof your floor, regardless of the material you ultimately choose to use.
- Luxury vinyl tile has come a long way from the 1980’s, and it can be used in commercial applications as well now, too! If budget is an issue for your commercial flooring project, luxury vinyl tile is definitely a viable option for you.
- There’s a new type of commercial tile out there called LATICRETE. Basically, it’s tiles on steroids, because it puts the tiles into a fixed mortar bed, making it more durable and long-lasting. (You can see this in action at your local commercial swimming pool.)
- When all else fails, try retro-fitting: use materials like floating planks on the floors.
