The moment you think about installing a commercial carpet, you also start thinking about the expense. Given that whatever flooring you decide to go with needs to last at least 10+ years, it’s understandable why flooring can get a little expensive. However, it doesn’t mean you have to clear out the bank. If you make the right choices, you can have a high-quality carpet installed at a very reasonable price. You just have to know what to look for.
The Flow Of Traffic
The first thing you have to ask yourself before installing a commercial carpet is how much traffic will there be? You know how many employees you have, and consider whether clients or customers will be using the area regularly.
Why is this important?
With a high traffic flow, you want a high-quality commercial carpet. It has to be durable and stain resistant, otherwise, the carpet will be worn-out within two or three years. Unless you plan on remodeling every year, you’ll save more money going with quality.
If the area won’t be seeing a lot of traffic, there’s no point in overspending. Just keep it simple and under the budget. In fact, you can use some of the money you save from the low-traffic areas and invest in higher quality carpets for the high-traffic areas.
The way your office is laid out will influence the price of installation. The more complex the layout, the more expensive installation will be. This is due to all the cutting and measuring the installers will have to do in order for the carpet to fit correctly.
As much as you would like to save money, don’t skim past the design choices. It’s incredible what type of atmosphere a carpet can create within a workspace, so keep it in mind.
Balance The Budget
When it comes down to it, you want to weigh up all the variables. How tough and durable do you need the carpet to be? How complex will the installation be? Can a carpet make the space more vibrant and inviting? And finally, what can you afford to spend?
It’s not necessarily the highest-priced commercial carpets that can turn your office into a great place to work. By simply taking all things into consideration, you should be able to find the right flooring for the right space. And sometimes it helps to call a professional.
