Commercial Flooring FAQs: More Answers to Common Questions

Commercial flooring

If you’re curious about the massive flooring industry and how you can shape your commercial space within it, we’ve got answers! Let’s take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from business and commercial property owners.

How Can I Choose Flooring That Complements My Office’s Aesthetic?

Style is one of those things that you need to keep up with as a property owner, whether you like it or not. Interior design isn’t for everyone, but finding the right look for your Nashville commercial flooring can be a big selling point, no matter what you use your space for. There has never been a better time for fashionable business owners to put their aesthetic touches on their flooring. 

Your office’s aesthetics are important for morale, and also for attracting prospective businesses to rent the space. As more and more jobs switch to fully remote work, attracting people to your office space becomes a bigger challenge. Modern problems call for modern solutions, so it’s important to focus on stylish flooring for your Nashville office space. Carpet is a standby choice for commercial office space since it comes in many colors and styles to fit whatever design you may need. While carpeting has gotten a negative reputation in recent years by some, its importance in an office is still relevant. Commercial office carpet has come a long way, and it’s no longer the drab beige it once was limited to. You can find a variety of unique and stylish patterns that work for any aesthetic, from cozy to hyper-modern. 

Carpet is also relatively affordable when compared to options like hardwood, and carpet has another hidden benefit: sound absorption. Large office spaces are echoey, but carpet helps to prevent sound transmission and keep everyone in their own quiet workspace. Don’t want to go with carpet? That’s fine. Many offices are incorporating vinyl and laminate flooring into their interior design, giving a modern and more open feel to a commercial office setting. These options are more affordable than hardwood flooring but can match the style and patterns many look for in hardwoods.

Additionally, vinyl and laminate flooring are very durable, so you don’t need to worry about damage from desk chairs and heavy office furniture. No matter what you’re looking for when making your commercial office space a beautiful place to work, Ozburn-Hessey can help you find it. 

How Do I Budget for a Commercial Flooring Project?

Planning for a commercial flooring project without breaking the bank can be stressful. What can you do to figure out your budget for a commercial flooring installation? We often suggest that our clients use online resources to get a rough idea of the cost, but we need to caution you that these estimates are vague and based on the best-case scenario.

The first step for determining your cost is comparing your project to the local market. Once you’ve done that, it’s wise to consider the different types of flooring and which would fit in your space the best. Cheaper options may cost less upfront, but they may not last as long as some of the more expensive options, which doesn’t save you any money in the end. With material and comparisons in mind, it’s time to shop around and get some estimates. 

Many commercial flooring installation jobs have unforeseen setbacks or issues, from warped subfloors to supply chain issues. Working with a company you know you can trust to help you every step of the way is important. 

Ozburn-Hessey has installed floors for countless local businesses, and we’re well aware of our customers’ primary needs. We offer free consultations and estimates for your commercial flooring project, so you can have a good idea of what to expect. Every job is different, but we strive for transparency with our original estimate, considering things like subfloor issues or certain stock limitations before getting to work.
