Wood flooring Somerset wide continues to be a universally popular choice across both residential and commercial properties. However, when it comes to the latter, some people are still wary about the most appropriate type of flooring for use in a work environment. Is wood resilient enough for the everyday wear and tear that can ensue? In this article, we're going to go through some of the flooring choices available out there for installation in commercial properties. We will also look at how to find the best Somerset flooring contractor to help get a quality, cost-efficient job done.
So when it comes to looking for the right flooring option for your commercial property, the first thing is to identify the options that are available and what you require from your floor. Which surface you ultimately choose will depend not only on what image you're going for; you also need to consider what will be practical and hard-wearing in the environment in which you work. Consider the volume of people that will be walking on the floor and the practical aspects of the work being done, for example. Most Somerset wood flooring options will look great anywhere, but may not fare as well in environments where conditions are wet or chemicals are routinely used. Here, tiled or vinyl flooring might be the better option. Other non-wood options to consider include linoleum and carpet. Carpet has fallen out of favour somewhat as it can end up stained and pilled, and it’s labour-intensive to keep it looking good. Linoleum or vinyl are low-cost options that could be appropriate for high traffic areas where people are working. Tiling is immensely practical, but good quality, hard-wearing options can be expensive. Furthermore, the overall effect on a room can be to amplify noise, as well as looking somewhat clinical; and being hard on staff’s feet if they are standing for long periods of time. For most environments, you cannot beat some kind of wood flooring. It’s warm and welcoming; and the right choice can be durable and stain resistant. Here, your options include Somerset engineered wood flooring, solid wood flooring or laminate flooring.
You will obviously want the best available floor sanding Bristol or wood flooring Taunton or Somerset way for your commercial property. Let's start with the positives of laminate. This imitation of real wood flooring is brought together by a fusion of wood-like flooring products. Of all of the 'wood' options, it is going to be the most inexpensive. While laminate's shelf-life is not as long as that of real wood, it has a resilience that makes it perfect for high-traffic areas: think entrances, hallways and foyers. When it comes to solid wood, though, there is no doubt that genuine oak flooring Somerset wide is immensely popular. While we think of wood as being soft and easy to scratch, the right finish provided by a professional wood flooring Somerset contractor will protect it against major damage and scuffs. This makes it ideal as a restaurant or shop-floor material. Finally, there's engineered wood flooring. Engineered wood, particularly engineered oak, is a great option for commercial premises. Despite perhaps not having quite the authenticity of solid wood, engineered wood is great in a commercial setting. It is more able to resist fluctuations in temperature and moisture than solid wood. This makes it an ideal solution for popular bars, for instance, where drinks are frequently spilled. But irrespective of your business, if temperature and moisture will be issues, engineered wood is the go-to flooring material. In the final analysis, it's all about finding the right contractor who can advise on what materials would be best suited to your commercial property. This is where TFS Flooring can help.
