How Flooring Helps Put Your Business’ Best Foot Forward

For something that takes up a lot of surface area, the power flooring has in setting a tone for a room is very underrated. The materials used, the color chosen, or the floor’s pattern, will impact how people view the business. Flooring may be beneath us, but in terms of setting the vibe of a space, flooring is at the top of the list. 

The Importance of Good Floors for Your Business

What Your Floor is Made From Sends A Message

One of the first things a client or customer is going to notice about your business is the floor, so it is important to be aware of what message you’re sending. For example, hardwood flooring gives off a sense of history and legacy, due to the perception that hardwood flooring is an old-world material. It’s why you often see hardwood flooring in Nashville and in the greater Middle Tennessee area, especially in buildings trying to give off that impression. For something on the other end of the spectrum, there’s commercial carpeting. There are many reasons for installing commercial carpeting. It’s affordable and it can take a lot of wear and tear before it needs to be replaced. It can also be relatively easy to install. It may not be the type flooring that catches the eye like a sleek hardwood floor, so keep these factors in mind while choosing what works for your business’ needs.

The Use of Color Allows You To Control The Feel and Look of Your Space

Another way you can use flooring to make your business into the best version it can be, is by playing around with the color of the floors. No matter the material you are using for your flooring, there are plenty of shades to choose from to create the perfect aesthetic for the space. If you have a large, open space, a darker shade of floor can make it look a lot larger and a bit unfriendly, or intimidating. You’ll want to find the perfect compromise when deciding on a shade.  This is a great idea for something like a firm, or someplace that needs to prove it’s capable of handling important issues, but it’s too intimidating for somewhere such as a therapist office, or a simple shop. Businesses like these often prefer something a bit warmer and more inviting. For this aesthetic, a lighter shade of wood is preferable, such as a pine wood floor. There’s more color to choose from with commercial and residential carpeting than there are for other materials. But with carpeting you also need to take into account its depths and texture. Some will not be suitable for businesses due to the extra foot traffic. A professional will be able to help you determine what kind of carpet is ideal for your business. 

Individual Piece Sizes Are Important in Controlling Space

How we perceive the space of a room is heavily dependent on the size of the flooring material. A room with large planked hardwood flooring will have a different feel than one with smaller planks. The way your business is received can even be inspired by the pieces that make up the flooring. Consequently, the use of narrower floor planks will lead to the room looking controlled in a good way. Combine the size of the planks and patterns you plan on using with the right color combination, and you’ll be able to create whatever mood and look you desire. 

Flooring material is important. Don’t discount the size and color of your floors, since they’re very important to how your business is perceived. If you have questions about anything related to flooring, be sure to contact the professionals here at Ozburn-Hessey today!
