Things to Consider When Choosing Commercial Carpets for Your Business

Posted on January 27th, 2022   Categories Latest News

If you are in the process of choosing commercial carpets for your business, then there are some factors to consider. There is a huge range of carpet types out there that can benefit your business in different ways. Once you know the type of carpet you want, you will need to look at colour, design, patterns and more. Then, you will need to decide on the best way of fitting and installing your carpet. So, here are the details you should consider when choosing commercial carpets for a business.

Commercial Carpets

1. Type of Carpet

The first thing you need to decide on when it comes to commercial carpets is what type you prefer. The two main types of carpet are wall to wall fitted carpets and carpet tiles. Wall to wall carpets are the traditional choice, featuring one piece of carpet cut to size and shape. Although wall to wall carpets are very comfortable and available in a wide variety of colours and textures, they can also be wasteful. Carpet tiles, being much smaller, result in a lot less waste during installation. They are relatively easy to install and can absorb more impact and sound than wall to wall carpets. Wall to wall carpets however have a luxurious edge over carpet tiles, so may be worth considering for more high-end commercial projects.

2. Style of Carpet

Once you have decided on the type of carpet you want, you can now think about the appearance. Commercial carpets come in a vast range of design possibilities. Elements to consider include how the carpet will look against the lighting, and how much traffic the areas are likely to see. For example, darker colours are more able to hide the evidence of heavy foot traffic. Once you have a design in mind, you can browse through a carpet manufacturer’s selection and find the style that best suits your tastes. If their standard designs do not match your needs then you may be able to request a custom design at an agreed price. Keep in mind that custom designs may take more time and be more costly than standard carpet choices.

3. Installing Your Carpet

When choosing carpets, you not only have to consider the cost of purchasing the carpet, but also installing it. There are many factors that can impact on the cost of installation. These can include the type of carpet used, how much floor area needs to be covered, the method of installation, as well as the temperature of the area you will be installing in. When choosing to install your carpet, it is important to choose a carpet fitter that has well established skills with fitting commercial carpets. This will help to ensure you get the best service possible for your money.
