February 8, 2016 7:03 pm Published by

Whether hotels, education facilities, commercial developments, or commercially rented properties choosing the right flooring is key.

There are plenty of considerations to be taken on board, from the specific environment and traffic to particular uses. In fact, the whole process can at times be a little overwhelming.


But, that’s where Rivendell come in. With extensive knowledge and experience installing carpet and flooring to a wide range of commercial projects we can take the stress out of the process for you. Discover below exactly what you’ll need to consider and how we can help you:

Where Do I Begin?

The nature of commercial properties should be considered very carefully. For something that not only looks great but is suitable for the property in hand, there are a number of factors that will determine the choice of flooring:

Type of Environment

The purpose of the property is perhaps the largest factor when considering flooring options. Commercial housing developers will have vastly different needs to Hotels or Restaurants and Pubs for example.

Ask yourself whether your facility will encounter heavy foot traffic. Areas such as hallways and hotel lobbies will be prime suspects here. Luxury vinyl tiles and laminates continue to grow in popularity as a practical alternative to real wood, stone, or ceramic tiles.

Practicality, Durability, and Maintenance

You will want to limit your expenses and associated upkeep of any new flooring meaning that considerations in regards to durability and practicality is key. Commercial flooring is certainly a major investment and therefore one that should encompass all practical needs.

For example individual rooms and apartments should be approached in a very specific manner. Noise disturbance can be a real problem if suitable flooring isn’t chosen causing need for potential change further down the line.

Additionally, floor care maintenance is an ongoing expense for any business. Flooring choices can impact hugely on any cleaning costs so you will therefore need to factor in any necessary maintenance needs.

Health and Safety

As a business owner you are responsible for following the correct safety guidelines to ensure a risk free working environment. Particularly prevalent in bar areas, kitchens, and bathrooms specialist safety flooring can provide a number of benefits such as:

  • Anti-slip
  • Impervious Surface
  • Easy to clean and hygienic
  • Resilient surface
