Because flooring is such a large component of the overall design of a space, taking the time to choose the right type of flooring to achieve the best overall effect, therefore, an extremely important decision.
Equally important is to determine the material composition of the flooring itself so that it can be appropriated in the best way possible. It may come as a surprise to know just how functional flooring can be; this is of course, dependent on the type of flooring involved.
Here are a few examples of the most functional and popular types of flooring available for use in different types of commercial spaces.
- Laminate flooring is a long-lasting and cost-effective substitute for wooden flooring if you are looking for a similar wood-like effect. Although not the real deal, it is remarkably similar in appearance. Laminate flooring is a popular type of flooring that is as durable as it is versatile due to its plywood composition that is covered with a protective sealant to prevent scuffs and scratches, and a bottom layer that is impervious to moisture damage.
- Vinyl tiles can be classified into two groups – luxury vinyl tiles or LVT and vinyl sheet flooring. LVT tiles are made to resemble either hardwood or ceramic tiles and come in either a flexible or more rigid tile or plank form. Vinyl rolls on the other hand are fiberglass rolls of sheeting that have a cushioned backing and come in one continuous roll of floor sheeting. Vinyl flooring is easy to install and may be one of the most versatile and durable flooring options available. Vinyl tiles can be used for home use as well as for healthcare, and commercial establishments.
- And last but not least there is anti-static flooring. Anti-static flooring aims to reduce the electrostatic discharge that occurs naturally when static electricity passes from a person to an object, in this case to the floor which can pass to (and possibly damage) electrical devices stationed on the floor. Anti-static flooring is most commonly used in hospital and repairing/manufacturing facilities that deal with lots of electrical equipment.
