Flooring materials like carpets are an essential part of the general décor that an office requires. With competition for customers getting stiff by the day; organizations are striving to present the correct image to their clients by ensuring their offices look elegant, inviting and clean. Installing an office carpet has since become the norm rather than the exception. Some of the Pros and Cons of having a carpet installation in the office include but not limited to;
An office that has some carpet installation looks beautiful and classy. This is because a well chosen carpet that has been professionally done will be match with the décor of the entire office giving the office a look and feel that is priceless. Carpets provide the office with a variety of designs and colors that would otherwise be difficult to incorporate in an office setting.
In some offices in Singapore people are required to remove their shoes as they get in. An office that does not have a carpet will be cold on the feet of both visitors and employees. Thus a carpet makes clients and employees more comfortable; employees will be more productive and clients will be more at ease and ready to do business.
Carpets add some aesthetic value to an office. Interior designers who design offices that incorporate carpets usually get a wider variety of options to choose from in the form of blinds, curtains and color scheme. An office will then have a more contemporary look as compared to an office that is bare or with some other flooring material.
Installing office carpets is generally cheaper when compared to flooring options offered by other materials. Though this depends on the kind of material the carpet is made from.
An office carpet just like any other carpet does help in modulating the temperature in a room. An office that does not have a carpet tends to be much colder as compared to one that has a carpet. Very little energy will then be used to heat an office that has a carpet as compared to one that does not.
Carpet installation is generally simpler than installing tiles or any other flooring material; it takes less time and the carpet can be easily cut into smaller pieces that can literally fit in any corner or edifice in an office.
Carpets reduce the level of noise that emanates from the office; it absorbs the noise. This helps keep the office quite and conducive for official duties.
Carpets tend to retain a lot of dust and other dirt materials; this may require continuous or daily maintenance, this may come at a cost.
Some of your customers may be acutely allergic to some carpet materials, bacteria or dust particles that are in the carpet; they may be your biggest clients. Thus there is a risk of losing business because a client cannot stand the dust particles in your office.
The foot traffic in the office may not be conducive for a carpet installation. If the number of clients visiting your office is very high then a change in the flooring material may be necessary.
An office carpet cannot be replaced in parts; like replacing spoilt vinyl tiles. In most instances the entire carpet will have to be removed unless carpet tiles were used.
