As many of us now know, working from home can have a lot of benefits – but only if you have a suitable working space.
When setting up a home office, one of the first things you need to think about is the flooring.
The right floor will help to boost productivity, inspire creativity, and offer sumptuous comfort underfoot.
Here, online retailer Stories Flooring picks out some of the best options for home office flooring.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles Flooring
Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) flooring is fast becoming one of the most popular options for home offices.
Offering realistic looking wood, stone and abstract designs, these floors provide comfort, practicality, and durability.
You’ll find hundreds of designs available, and they are renowned for their ease of installation.
Many come with a click system, allowing you to simply click the planks together.
You can also install them with underfloor heating, creating a warm, cosy home office space.
There are a lot of brands to choose from, including exclusive offerings like the Bentley LVT range from Stories Flooring.
Bentley LVT offers four unique ranges, including the luxurious looking Classic collection.
The herringbone designs are particularly well suited to home offices, giving them a sophisticated and luxurious makeover.
Another option to consider is engineered wood.
Unlike solid wood floors, engineered products are designed to withstand changes in moisture and temperature. Their layered design also provides enhanced stability.
Ideally, you’ll want to look out for an engineered wood floor that has been tested against castor chair use. If it hasn’t, the wheels could potentially damage the floor.
Most engineered wood floors come with a lacquered or oiled surface, which provides great protection against scratches and dents.
Engineered wood flooring comes in a vast range of designs and finishes from some of the leading brands in the industry.
Kahrs floors are particularly popular, offering exceptional durability and the latest in flooring technology.
Features To Look Out For
Whether you opt for an LVT or engineered wood floor, there are some features you’ll want to look out for.
When choosing flooring for a home office, you need to consider aesthetics, durability, noise and comfort.
The aesthetics of the floor are obviously important.
With such a wide choice of designs available, you’re sure to find one that matches your preferences.
Durability wise, the floor needs to be able to withstand dents and scratches. Alternatively, you could add a small rug underneath your office chair to prevent it from damaging your new floor.
Noise is another factor to consider. You’ll want to look out for a floor that offers sound reduction properties. The quieter your home office is, the easier you’ll find it to work.
Leading online retailer Stories Flooring has hundreds of suitable home office floor options, available at up to 65 per cent off.
