A key part of your home office is the flooring. With so many options available, you may be wondering which type of floor should you choose for home offices? If you’re struggling to make a decision, below you’ll discover some of the best types of flooring for a home office you can invest in.
Wooden flooring can bring an elegant feel into your office space. However, when it comes to solid wood floors, they often come with a high price tag. If you want to achieve a solid wood effect on a budget, engineered hardwood floors are a great choice. Stories Flooring, based in Leeds, have a large selection.
Made with a solid wood top layer, engineered wood flooring looks just like the real thing. However, it also boasts a layered construction, giving it a tougher, more stable design. Many engineered wood floors come with a lacquered or oiled surface. This further helps to protect them against wear and tear.
If you select the right floor, it can potentially add value to the home. To ensure the floor will withstand dents and scratches, look out for one with a Class 32 or 33 rating. These are commercial grade floors, offering remarkable wear and tear protection.
Like LVT, engineered wood floors are easy to maintain and install. Some come with a tongue and groove system, while newer floors benefit from a click system. Both methods are easy to follow, so you shouldn’t need to bring in the professionals.
Many modern offices prefer the look and feel of luxury vinyl flooring. These affordable floors are available in wood and stone effect designs. They are visually appealing and provide excellent practicality. You also won’t need to spend hours maintaining them.
Easy to install, these floors are comfortable and highly wear resistant. You will find hundreds of designs to choose from, including a range of wood, stone, and abstract effect designs. Most come with a click system installation system. This allows you to just click the planks or tiles into place. However, some LVT floors may need to be glued down so make sure you pay attention to the installation method before you buy.
When choosing LVT flooring for your office, look out for a floor that benefits from castor chair resistance. The wheels on office chairs can potentially dent or scratch a floor. LVT flooring does tend to resist dents and scratches more than other flooring types.
When it comes to choosing the best floors for your home office, engineered wood and LVT are two options to consider. You can find a huge range of home office floors through flooring retailers like Stories Flooring. The Leeds based retailer has one of the largest collections of top branded floors, offered at up to 65% off RRP.
