Making the perfect choice of flooring within a contemporary office space may at first seem unimportant – after all, the room's inhabitants are absorbed in doing what they do best, rather than taking in the décor! However, selecting the perfect flooring material can have a far greater impact than one might imagine. From the psychological impact on workers to the impression given to clients, our chosen flooring can offer a surprising array of knock-on effects. Wooden flooring, in particular, demonstrates an impressive roster of rewards, and engineered wood flooring allows a speedy and convenient transformation for an interior workspace that will perform for many years to come. Here, we will explore how, for example, spectacular engineered wood chevron parquet flooring holds the key to unlocking the potential of your office and its inhabitants. Read on to discover more!
The Durability Of Engineered Wood Flooring
An engineered wood floor of exemplary quality offers the perfect balance between high aesthetic and durability. Hardwoods such as European oak, ash, or walnut, boast exceptional strength and hardness, providing a floor that can not only stand up to heavy foot fall, but remain beautiful throughout! Meanwhile, the construction of Unique Bespoke Wood's engineered wood flooring provides a surface that is able to withstand heat, humidity, and dryness far better than a solid wood floor. Such adaptability can be a valuable resource within an office space that may not see consistent use – or indeed may see ceaseless use! To realise the perfect finish for your office floor, you can choose from a broad variety of finishes, adding the visual element you desire. In reflection of the quality provided, Unique Bespoke Wood offers a 25 year warranty on engineered wood flooring, making this an excellent investment within any workspace.
A Psychological Boost To Workers
The warmth of natural wood has a greater impact on those enjoying the space than many realise, and may even help to attract the highest calibre of talent to your business. Researchers in New Zealand found that the use of wooden surfaces within workspaces stimulates feelings of energy, comfort, and innovation – both for those working in the space, and those considering a prospective employer. Meanwhile, studies conducted in Japan indicate that the elegant lines and hues of natural wood can help to reduce stress, and decrease blood pressure for those in proximity, while enhancing our inclination to interact and collaborate.
Enhancing Your Workspace With Engineered Wood Flooring
Alongside psychological boosts associated with wood, practical advantages can be realised too. Wood is an excellent sound absorber, helping to improve the ambience of work environments for greater focus. It also boasts higher insulation properties than steel or plastic, increasing energy efficiency for your professional premises. Uniquely among potential flooring materials, wood also improves air quality, thanks to its ability to absorb and release moisture. In this way, wood maintains a harmonious equilibrium within the air we breathe. In contrast, aluminium, steel, concrete and plastics release volatile organic compounds and carbon dioxide into the air, decreasing air quality. For a fresh breath of air, engineered wood flooring is certainly an optimal choice!
Creating The Perfect Impression For Clients
As is our nature as human beings, valuable contractors and prospective clients quickly form first impressions of each business they encounter. As you can no doubt imagine, the sophisticated air of engineered wood herringbone parquet flooring will likely contribute far more to professional relationships than a tired carpet or linoleum floor! The appearance of hardwood lends an aspirational element to any office space that is impossible to imitate. Simultaneously, engineered wood flooring offers exceptionally low maintenance demands, making it easy to keep your workspace looking its best. Thanks to the tongue and groove construction of engineered wood flooring, it does not invite dust or dirt, but can rather be kept immaculate with a quick sweep or mop when the need arises.
Fitting Engineered Wood Flooring In Your Office
Because of its structure, engineered wood flooring is perfectly suited to a wide range of interior spaces. While solid hardwood flooring demands joists, engineered wood flooring can be laid directly over a concrete subfloor, calling for minimal renovation requirements, or even suspended over an underfloor heating system should your vision demand it! Not only can you choose from a spectrum of wood finishes, but you can also select from a diversity of floor styles. Engineered wood chevron parquet flooring, and engineered wood herringbone parquet flooring are immensely popular – tapping into contemporary trends alongside timeless appeal, thanks to their illustrious nature.
Engineered floor construction permits any board width, or indeed length that you might envision. This means that you can create the unique aesthetic that you desire most, or select for speedy and efficient installation.
