What flooring installation is best for my home office?

To find the right installation for your home office, ask yourself:

  • How, exactly, will I use it? Is it a place to read, pay bills, or complete household paperwork, or will I be on the phone and using the computer?
  • Will clients visit?
  • Will I have heavy furniture, such as desks, bookcases, and file cabinets? Will I be using an office-type chair with wheels?
  • What is the overall decor of the room? Also, is it sunny and bright or a little dark and cramped?

Once you answer these questions, you’ll have a better idea of the amount of time you’ll spend in that room, as well as the amount of foot traffic. Talk to your flooring retailer in Everett, WA so you can be guided to the right choice.

You’ll never go wrong with carpet

More people than ever are working from home now, and carpet is a popular choice. Just be sure you select the right one for your needs. Keep in mind that installation is as important as the product itself, so please don’t select installation services where shortcuts will be taken. That will only result in rolls, wrinkles, or loose-fitting rugs, the latter not just being unsightly but also a safety hazard.

Almost all offices use low pile rugs. Chairs with wheels can move more easily because they won’t get stuck in long fibers. Furniture will be a lot easier to move than when you have a high pile rug, which is better for lower foot traffic rooms.

Low pile rugs are durable and easier to clean; that's why you'll always see them in offices. They come in so many colors, patterns, and designs, and price points there's something for everyone.

What about hardwood?

Hardwood floors are classic and versatile enough to work with any decor. The floors add richness and warmth. They all have gorgeous undertones (secondary colors) that can be used to accent and highlight walls, upholstery, artwork, and even views. Other possibilities are wood, stone, or tile-look products like luxury vinyl or laminate. They're all realistic mimics.
