Working from home used to be the exception, but as we venture further into 2021, it’s definitely becoming the new norm. Thankfully, with a little bit of love, your home office can still feel like a destination. And as every great home office starts with even better floors, we gathered together our favorite WFH floors and design tips so that you can keep your creativity high and your stress low, even as the emails flood in.
Hardwood floors are a classic choice for an office, but they can be a modern choice, too, depending on your decor. If you want, choose to add a small bold area rug or floor mat to your office, or you can opt to let your floors shine alone. Either way, hardwood floors in your office will create the clean, calming space you need to settle in and get stuff done. Details like a new lamp or desk can also help you warm things up. Even better? Hardwood floors are easy to dust and keep tidy.
What’s the perfect floor choice for rolling chairs, working lunches, and coffee spills? Tile. Tile is durable and water-resistant. Plus, with tile, you can enjoy a variety of styles and colors, including tile that looks like hardwood. No matter your vision, tile gets it done, and Flooring America has a wide variety of durable, beautiful options. Plus, if you think the kids and pets will be in and out of your office as well, tile can be your saving grace—unless, of course, your kids do something embarrassing on camera. Tile can’t help you there.
When work gets stressful, seek comfort in carpet—choose from a variety of colors and textures to really make your home office a cozy spot. Even better? Carpet is comfy underfoot—no need for slippers. Plus, if you’re more into the standing desk style, what better way to enjoy your workday than with cushy carpet under your feet? You can also find waterproof carpet to ensure that it stays clean for years to come.
If you’re interested in the look of wood or tile but have a lower renovation budget for your home office, then say hello to luxury vinyl. It’s highly durable, water-resistant, and softer underfoot when compared to tile and hardwood. Spruce it up with a rug and some bold furniture, and your home office will be the perfect space to settle in and stay productive throughout the day.
No matter what type of floors you’re considering as you look to spruce up your home office, your local Flooring America store is here to help. New floors and some fresh paint (and, let’s be honest, maybe a new printer) can really make the difference when it comes to creating a space you love. Come into your local Flooring America today, and let the experts help you create the perfect home office for you.
