THE WOOD FLOOR LOOK
Hardwood and its substitutes. Although more popular in the residential market, hardwood flooring still enjoys a legion of fans for commercial flooring. Business owners often select natural wood floors for adding warmth and comfort. Concerns about scratch and moisture resistance and higher maintenance requirements can discourage commercial building owners from embracing real wood. Faux wood products, such as luxury vinyl tile (LVT), porcelain, or vinyl sheet goods laminated with wood prints, are becoming increasingly popular, especially as the level of perceived “authenticity” improves.
Carpet tiles continue to dominate the commercial carpeting marketplace and are estimated to account for 55 to 60% of carpeting contract sales. Tile products offer extensive design flexibility, and it’s much easier to replace worn or damaged tiles than to fix a problem with broadloom carpet. Initial installation produces less waste, and some tile products no longer require adhesives.
Asia Carpet and Decorating offers a nice mix of styles, colors, shapes, and patterns to choose from. Beyond the traditional squares, manufacturers have introduced rectangular planks of 24x48 inches, skinny tiles of 25 centimeters x one meter, mega tiles of 36 inches square, and hexagon-shaped tiles.
Vinyl composition tile (VCT), LVT, linoleum, and rubber are very popular options for many commercial flooring applications. If the initial cost is the overriding factor, VCT often trumps other options. No longer limited to 12x12-inch tiles, VCT is now available in a variety of sizes and patterns. Linoleum offers renewable, natural properties and textural warmth. LVT with wood and stone patterns is becoming more and more realistic and the floating floor installation option can often help to reduce the total cost. The flooring consultants at Asia Carpet can help you select the right floor for your business needs.
