Great Floor Options for Schools and Daycares

Commercial flooring is our bread and butter. Though we love residential flooring, commercial flooring is our speciality. The crew at Ozburn-Hessey has installed floors and acoustical ceilings all over Middle Tennessee including Vanderbilt, the Country Music Hall of Fame, MTSU, countless restaurants, offices, churches and, of course, schools. Schools are fun for us in their own special way. Usually the floors need to be inexpensive, durable, easy to clean and safe for the children. And with our wide variety of vendors, we have a large selection of choices that makes these places look great.

As the school year comes to an end, it might be time to think about new floor installation for the fall of 2016. Or perhaps you’re opening up a new daycare and need something soon. Whatever the case, we’re here to help. Here are three great types of flooring that are popular choices in daycares and schools all around Nashville:


This is our most popular choice of flooring in schools and other child-oriented facilities. Why? It’s stain resistant! This is a huge selling point to many Ozburn-Hessey clients. But also because linoleum is affordable, durable and very easy to clean. You can get linoleum in virtually any kind of color, pattern and type. This makes it incredibly easy to find something that you can incorporate in your interior design while still having a dependable floor.

Cork flooring

Comfort is cork flooring’s number one selling point. This unique flooring is durable and affordable, but it also provides cushion while people walk (or play) too! The floor is a natural thermal and acoustical insulator as well, making it great for noisy classrooms. This renewable source of flooring is a great option for schools and daycares, especially those that need a little extra noise control and comfort.

Rubber flooring

Rubber flooring is another type of floor installation that is easy to maintain: a great reason to go with it! But some unique factors about rubber flooring are that it’s slip resistant, hygienic and ergonomic for walking and standing. If you run a facility where children are present, we are sure having a floor that’s slip-resistant would be a great asset. In addition, something hygienic for all their germs is a great option too. Like cork flooring, the floor is comfortable for long periods of standing. And like both cork flooring and linoleum, the flooring is durable making it a great choice for daycares and schools.

Every facility is different. Get a floor that represents your needs and your school. Our team of professionals can help answer questions and recommend products that might suit your everyday needs. The three types of floors listed above are great choices, but it doesn’t end there. Maybe you need carpet in your offices or hardwoods in the lobbies. Whatever your needs are, we’re here to help.
