New flooring will dramatically change the look of your office. With so many options available, you can create a bold, one-of-a-kind style that complements your sleek furnishings. The transformed space will make a positive first impression when clients come to visit. To get your creativity flowing, below are a few design ideas to add interest to your space.
How to Add a Dramatic Effect to Office Flooring
1. Create Geometric Patterns
To create an eye-catching office, use modular carpet or luxury vinyl tiles to add designs to the existing flooring. Tiles come in various sizes, allowing you to insert patterns such as zigzags or honeycombs down hallways or in your entryway. You may also have the materials cut into custom shapes to place your company logo on the surface. Use neutral tones like gray and black to help your designs match the rest of the space.
2. Play With Tonal Variations
Whether you choose carpet, vinyl, or wood flooring, you can add interest to the surface with slight tonal changes between planks or tiles. For example, install carpet tiles that are different shades of gray to create a checkerboard effect or use hardwood of different colors for each section of the office. This will give communal areas a modern look.
3. Consider Complementary Colors
Using two opposite colors, such as black and white or pale yellow and dark purple, will create an impact. Use the brighter color in the center of the floor and the darker hue around the border for balance. You can also use a muted tone in the middle and a more vibrant color along the perimeter to pull the focus to the size of the space and separate areas.
