A nice office floor can impress potential clients and make employees comfortable.

So why not find the best commercial flooring you can?

There are a lot of options out there, but don't worry. With a little help, you should have no problem finding the flooring that suits your office best.

Here is a list of three of the most popular flooring types. We'll go over all three and tell you the upside and downside of each one to help you make the best decision you can.

Let's get to it!

Three Commercial Flooring Options

There are many flooring types available. These are the three that are the most popular.

Laminate Wood Flooring

Created from synthetic materials, laminate simulates real wood or stone. This means that laminate can last for a long time.

The best feature of laminate flooring is that it's easy to install. The boards use a tongue-and-groove cut so they fit together with minimal effort. In fact, if you have a small office, it wouldn't be too hard to install them yourself if you wanted to save some cash.

Laminate is popular because you can choose from countless styles and colors. It's also a very affordable option that looks like the real materials for half the cost.

The downside to laminate is that it can get scuffed and scraped. You can avoid damage with proper cleaning and by using felt pads on the legs of furniture.

Vinyl-Composite Tile (VCT)

VCT is a lot like laminate flooring. It's made to look like real tiling but is a much cheaper option than real ceramic tiles.

Without a doubt, VCT is one of the longest-lasting options you'll find. Once installed and cared for, you won't have to replace it for years. It can handle high-traffic areas better than other commercial flooring types.

The price alone should make you consider vinyl, as it's one of the cheapest types available.

There are some cons to VCT. It requires regular polishing to maintain the protective surface that prevents scratches.

Vinyl-composite isn't the most attractive option, either. Hospitals and schools use VCT often, so you may not like the "feel" that it gives your office. If you're not concerned with that, then VCT may be the way to go.


If you want to make your offices pop, then carpet is a must have. It comes in hundreds of varieties, colors, and styles. It can make any office feel more inviting and comfortable.

Carpet is by far the most luxurious type of commercial flooring you'll find. It's also great for dampening sounds to make your office quieter.

There are two downsides to carpeting.

First, it creates a lot of waste, so you'll be paying for carpeting that never gets used.

Second, there's a lot of upkeep. If you want to keep your carpeting looking great, you'll need to take care of spills right away. It also requires frequent vacuuming.
