10 Tips for Office Carpet Installation

When you are setting up an office, you have a lot to think about. You want a space that is functional and provides a great work environment, but you also want the office to look good for your employees and visitors as well. The right carpet can help you accomplish both of these goals. When you are ready to buy new carpeting, keep these ten simple tips for office carpet installation in mind and make the best choice for your office.

  • Calculate Foot Traffic – In an office setting, it is likely that a carpet is walked on more than it would be in a home setting; meaning a higher-quality carpet is necessary. Spend some time thinking over how much foot traffic there is, so you can choose the right style and brand for your office.
  • Estimate Your Budget – Before you set foot in the carpet store, think about how much you have to spend and how much you want to spend. You don’t want to go into this investment blindly. Once you have a better idea of your budget, you’ll avoid overspending.
  • Repair or Replace – Have you considered just repairing your carpet? This is occasionally a good solution for carpets that aren’t in too bad of shape. Be sure to consult a flooring expert to see if replacement is a viable option. In many cases however it might just be better to go ahead and replace your carpet with a new, high-quality one that will last you for years to come.
  • Style Today and Tomorrow – Remember that when you buy new carpet for the office, you will have this floor covering for years to come. You may want to consider something classic rather than the latest trend. This will allow you to rest assured it won’t look dated in just a few years.

  • Carpet Cleaning – It’s highly recommended to have your carpets cleaned at least once a year or so, and this doesn’t just mean vacuumed. Because of this, you want to learn about what the best method is, and not choose a carpet that will be especially expensive or difficult to clean.
  • Loop or Cut Pile Carpet – There are two different types of carpet, Loop and Cut carpet. Loop carpet is less luxurious and less plush than cut pile carpet. It’s important you understand the difference and consider loop carpet for the areas with highest traffic.
  • Padding – Decide if you need a carpet pad or other underlayment. If it is an area where people will stand for long periods of time, padding may be a good option.
  • Colors – For an office, simple colors are best. A dark color may not show stains, but it will show lint and dust. When picking out a color, also thing about what colors might inhibit or promote productivity in your office.
  • Maneuverability – While a thick pile carpet may look good and feel luxurious, it might not be the right choice for an area where you need to move around quickly or roll things through often. Consider your ability to maneuver on your carpet, especially in an office environment.
  • You Get What You Pay For – While low cost carpet may save you money up front, if it has to be replaced twice as quickly, it may not be as good of a value as you think. Talk to an expert about the right option for your office.
