Choosing Carpet for Your New Office
So, you’ve settled on a new office location in a busy business district, right across the street from your favorite restaurant, and you’re excited to settle into your new space. There’s only one problem: before you move your furniture into the building, the place needs new carpet. Fortunately, choosing a carpet for your new office isn’t as hard as it seems.
Tips for Choosing Carpet for Your New Office
The best thing about carpet is that there are plenty of options to fit exactly what you like. The tricky part is identifying exactly what you have in mind; and that’s not done by thinking about carpet, but by thinking about what atmosphere you wish to create in your office.
You should consider 3 primary factors before making your choice, and you as an individual can decide the importance of each. Let’s take a closer look.
The color of your carpet is big. It helps determine the overall atmosphere of your office space. Before choosing a color, ask yourself a few questions. For instance, do you want your business to appear serious or friendly? Do you want to create a cool atmosphere or a warm one?
Basic colors are divided into “temperatures,” with colo colors including blues, greens, turquoise, and white. On the other hand, warm colors include reds, oranges, browns, etc. Each “temperature” invokes a certain feeling which you should consider from the business side of things.
For example’s sake, pretend you own a business that sells heating systems. You may want to avoid large amounts of blue in your office, as blue does not encourage a feeling of warmth.
Additionally, keep in mind that dark colors create more contrast against lighter walls. Darker may create a more dramatic and sophisticated feel.
Texture can be a matter of personal preference as well as a matter of practicality. For instance, if you are a business that hires men with chainsaws to trim trees along the highway, and they come in every Friday to get their paychecks and leave wood chips on the floor, shag carpet is probably not a wise choice.
Raised designs enhance an elegant look. A low, tight weaves support a no-nonsense attitude. Shag indicates informality and ease. Most importantly, make sure that a texture or pattern doesn’t overpower a room, rather compliments it.
Finally, make your choice based on the quality and durability of the product you have in mind. You won’t want to replace it again any time soon, so it needs to be durable, as well as a trend that won’t fade away in a year. Always research the brands and read reviews. Check the warranties, and compare prices of different suppliers.
