Best Flooring Options for High Traffic Areas
As we now have a month under our belt in the new year, Studio Floors trusts that your Winnipeg business has hit the ground running. Is your traffic increasing in the new year? That could mean foot traffic from more customers or more traffic in your office from more employees. More traffic may mean it’s time for better flooring options for your office renovation. It’s important that your commercial flooring meets your facility’s current or expected level of traffic.
You may be thinking, “What’s the big deal?” The big deal is that your time, money and resources will be wasted. If your commercial flooring cannot withstand your facility’s daily capacity, the following will more than likely occur:
Your flooring will need to be replaced sooner than later and more frequently than necessary.
Every employee, investor, or other personnel within your facility, yourself included, will start to suffer from the discomfort of walking on that unsuitable flooring all day every day.
When your flooring ultimately needs to be replaced, organizational operations will be placed on hold and time and money will be poorly spent.
Assuming the above-mentioned situation is not an appealing one, let’s explore the best commercial flooring options for high traffic facilities:
Concrete floors are extremely durable and easy to clean. They resist water when adequately sealed and work extremely well with radiant heating. Not to mention, concrete flooring has the ability to last for a hundred years – talk about longevity. Concrete is also a stylish choice for floors, as it can be finished in a variety of ways with different colors, stains and aggregates.
Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring
LVT flooring also called floating wood is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process. LVT is noise, scratch and water resistant, and is extremely useful in high traffic areas. LVT also has the ability to replicate the look of basically every other flooring out there, including ceramic tile, wood, natural stone, etc.
One of the more expensive options but one of the most durable happens to be the natural stone. Not all natural stones are equal when it comes to resilience, but stones like granite, sandstone and limestone can withstand an extensive amount of capacity and can last for decades.
Porcelain Tile Flooring
Tile is rated as one of the hardest classed flooring products out there and has been used in high traffic areas for thousands of years. Over the course of their lifetime, they’ve been manufactured to suit just about any décor, design, or style. Whether you want tile that replicates granite to match your bathroom floors or tile that replicates hardwood to match the rest of your hardwood flooring, tile can fulfill the job with its optimal versatility.
