Carpet tiles may work best for your working office area, but inevitable food spills and coffee stains in the break room can leave these types of products looking dingy in between cleans. Opt for easier-to-clean products such as ceramic tile or LVT. This way, daily messes will be easy to clean up, and the products will last longer in terms of wear and tear.
No matter the flooring you choose, some form of maintenance will often be required. The question is, how often should you schedule your maintenance? For carpet products, since this is a high-traffic area, we recommend cleanings once every month or every other month. Tile and LVT products require maintenance once a year. And wood products, such as hardwood or laminate, require maintenance about three times a year.
Choosing the right colors for a break room is important because the hues you go with can affect the general feeling of the space. Dreary colors like grays can dampen the energy of the space. If you want the break room to feel more comfortable for your employees, go with colors that incite feelings of calm and relaxation, such as blues, greens, and even some lighter purples.
