Step on it!
Is flooring boring? When it comes to revitalizing your workspace, thinking about flooring may not sound so much fun as choosing a beautiful ergonomically designed executive chair, or commissioning a fabulous piece of wall art – but getting the flooring right for your office has to be equally important.
Whatever you put in place, it’s going to take a pounding, so clearly has to be durable. But as well as the up-front material and installation cost, don’t forget to take ongoing cleaning and maintenance bills into consideration – some materials need specialist care. Your flooring needs to be safe of course – too many accidents at work are caused by slips and trips, and poorly maintained surfaces. Think about acoustic properties too. Flooring can help improve your workplace acoustics – or make things infinitely worse.
The best thing is that replacing tired old flooring is not such an upheaval as you might think! Often the very thought of moving workstations, storage and other office furniture, together with all the IT implications and general business disruption, is just too off-putting for many businesses – but the good news is that modern techniques mean flooring can be replaced virtually overnight – and without having to move a thing!
So don’t be floored by flooring. It may be necessary – but needn’t be boring. Today’s exciting choice of modern flooring materials and vibrant or traditional colours will provide an instant facelift for your workspaces. Brighter surroundings create a more inspirational environment for your staff and draw them closer together, as well as leaving a favourable impression with your visitors.
