Choosing the right commercial flooring for your business can be tricky, but Floor Expo Inc. is here to help.

When you’re looking for a flooring option for your home, it’s relatively straightforward. You pick the style and look you want, and then you find an option that fits your budget. But, when it comes to commercial floors, it can be a little trickier. There is a lot to consider when determining which flooring option is right for your needs, and if you’ve never gone through the process before, it’s easy to end up with the wrong option. But, the good news is that the professionals at Floor Expo are on your side, and we’ve come up with this guide to help you find the right flooring option for your business.

What are your flooring options?

Before we get into how to narrow down your flooring options, and determine which one is right for you, you need to know what options you have in the first place. Here are the most common commercial flooring options available to you.


Natural hardwood floors can add unparalleled beauty to any space, and people often choose hardwood flooring because of its ability to make a space look more sophisticated and classy. Hardwood flooring is also one of the more expensive commercial flooring options, and it often requires more maintenance than other flooring types.


Traditional, wall-to-wall carpet is a wonderful flooring option for many businesses, and it’s available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Commercial carpet isn’t quite like the carpet you have at home. It’s generally made to be a lot more durable and less comfortable than residential carpet, but it does provide some of the same benefits, including added warmth, air purification and energy savings.

Carpet Tile

Carpet tile, which can also be called carpet squares or modular carpet, is a wonderful alternative to wall-to-wall carpet. When compared to traditional carpet, carpet tile is easier to install, easier to maintain and easier to replace. One of the biggest benefits of carpet tile for business is that, when certain parts of the carpet need to be replaced, you can simply replace individual tiles rather than the entire floor.


If you love the classic look and beauty of natural hardwood floors, but you want to avoid the hefty price tag and high-maintenance needs, laminate flooring is an excellent alternative. Laminate is affordable and easy to maintain, but keep in mind that lower quality laminates are prone to warping with exposure to moisture, so if you choose laminate, make sure to choose a quality brand.


Like laminate, vinyl flooring can be made to look like real, natural hardwood flooring, but it can also be made to mimic stone flooring as well. With innovations in design and technology, mock hardwood and mock stone floors made of vinyl are more convincing than ever before, and the best part is that vinyl flooring is very affordable. It’s also long-lasting, versatile and easy to maintain, making it an all-around great option for any business.
