Your home office space is more than just an extension of your home or office. Flooring can help you strike a balance between comfort, quality, and durability that can help your home office working hours become the most productive of your day. The right flooring for you will depend on your needs for style, sound, cleaning, and standard wear-and-tear from frequent use and office furniture. With all the flooring options available to you, here is a helpful guide to finding the right home office flooring to meet all your needs and considerations.
Hardwood is a classic choice for any home office. Whether solid or engineered, hardwood provides a sleek look and welcoming warmth that can make you feel at home while working. They’re also easy to clean, but will hardwood require regular maintenance. These floors can be scratched up over time by office furniture, wheeled chairs, and high foot traffic.
Carpeting is a very popular option for home office flooring. This is due to its sound-muffling quality, allowing you to go about your work without worrying about disturbing the rest of your home. It’s also a comfortable material to work on, though you’ll need mats to protect your carpet from permanent furniture marks. Carpet cleaning can also be more involved than with other types of flooring. It will need to be vacuumed often to avoid allergen buildup, and special carpet cleaners should be used in case of spills or stains.
Tile flooring is another timeless office flooring option. This is a great choice for your home office if your main considerations have to do with cleaning and maintenance. Tile is resistant to spills, soil, and staining, so it’s great for high traffic areas of your home. However, tile flooring can be expensive to install, so budget considerations may restrict tile flooring in your home office.
Available in sheet vinyl, vinyl tile, and vinyl plank flooring, this flooring can provide the stone, tile, or hardwood aesthetic you want in your office at a lower price point. Vinyl is highly stain-resistant and easy to clean. This makes vinyl an excellent option for home offices that will see a lot of foot traffic or wear-and-tear. They’re also a great option for an office with a door to the exterior of your home. Vinyl will hold up to years of use and require very little maintenance while providing the classic look of several other flooring types.
