Down to Earth: Floor Covering Options for Your UAE Office

Posted by Evolve Design Team on May 16, 2017 9:51:34 AM

It's at the bottom of everything. It gets trampled underfoot all day, is shown almost no respect at all, and, if anything gets dropped, guess where it lands. That's right, I'm talking about the floor of your office.

This vital component of any office space in the UAE is criminally underrated. Let's show it the love it deserves and take a look at some of the floor covering options for your next office fit-out project.

Carpet

Some people feel that carpet has grown a little dated, but it remains a classic. What's more, it is incredibly versatile and features an array of different color, style and texture options to help you bring out the very best in your Dubai office space.

Pros

Provides a warm and welcoming impression to visitors

Can reduce noise, particularly in places where there is a lot of foot traffic

Cons

Difficult to keep clean

May not fit in with a sleek, hygienic, modern image

Hardwood

Hardwood represents a more grandiose option, contributing towards a prestigious and palatial effect in your office. Not as quiet underfoot as carpet, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Some office owners prefer to hear the sound of footsteps on hardwood floors as they believe it adds to the overall professional ambiance.

Pros

Relatively easy to clean when compared to carpet

Creates a classy, high-quality look

Cons

Can get damaged and scuffed, particularly when moving heavy furniture across the surface

Relatively expensive, particularly over large areas

Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic tiles are certainly a divisive choice in a Dubai office, but the sharp, clinical effect they provide makes them ideally suited to certain types of business.

Pros

Probably the easiest to clean of all the potential floor surfaces for an office

Creates a very smart, cool and clean effect, particularly suited to organizations in scientific and medical fields

Cons

Not suitable for all types of business

Can be damaged if anything heavy is dropped onto the surface, although replacements are simple to install

Linoleum

An old floor covering staple, linoleum might not be the most fashionable choice, but it is functional, and, if used correctly, can be easy on the eye too.

Pros

Simple to clean

Very easy to install, even over large areas

Cons

Less stylish than other floor covering options

Can be marked by sharp edges
