Broadloom (Roll Carpet)

  • Traditional
  • Comfortable
  • Affordable

For traditional commercial carpet, you’re likely thinking of broadloom. Also known as roll carpet, broadloom comes in large rolls for wall-to-wall installation.

With broadloom, there is definitely no shortage of variety in colors, patterns and textures!

Ideal Flooring For: Hotels, Multi-Family Housing (Apartments, Condos), Office Buildings

Carpet Squares

  • Modern
  • Customizable
  • Durable

There are many reasons to consider carpet squares, aka carpet tiles, over traditional broadloom, and they’re mainly tied to flooring traffic. If you want the softness of carpet in a high-traffic space, the squares provide the same durability of regular carpet with the added benefit of being individually replaceable.

Ideal Flooring For: Schools, Gyms, Offices, Restaurants

Cove Base

  • Trim
  • Seamless
  • Watertight

When you install commercial flooring, you must think about the transition from the wall to the floor; The piece of trim you install around the base of the room is known as the cove base. It prevents water from pooling at the base of a wall.

While cove bases are simply “nice to have” in residential settings, especially in wet environments, cove bases are required by law to meet health and safety standards in commercial settings.

Ideal Flooring For: Any commercial space that requires hygienic flooring.

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) & Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)

  • Water-Resistant
  • Affordable
  • Customizable

With “luxury” in the name immediately followed by “vinyl,” LVT and LVP are commonly misunderstood. These flooring options offer the best of both worlds: the appearance of expensive, high-maintenance flooring materials with the easy upkeep of vinyl!

LVT comes in tiles while LVP comes in planks, offering excellent versatility for design and installation. Both flooring types can look like wood, stone, ceramic, and other finishes and textures.

Ideal Flooring For: Offices, Retail, Gyms, Healthcare, Multi-Family Housing


  • Timeless
  • Durable
  • Customizable

We hardly feel the need to explain why tile is such a popular choice for commercial properties – it’s a classic for a reason! Top considerations for commercial tiles are hardness and slip-resistance, and our experts can guide you to the right material for your needs.

Also keep in mind: Tile installation takes patience and skill, especially when your project involves complex patterns or irregularly-shaped natural tiles.

Ideal Flooring For: Hotels, Retail, Offices


  • Budget-Friendly
  • Customizable
  • Water-Resistant

Vinyl composite tile (VCT) offers low installation costs, a vast variety of color and design options, and water-resistance. These factors and more make it the top flooring choice for education facilities and any space with heavy foot traffic and/or rolling load traffic.

Ideal Flooring For: Schools, Healthcare, Offices

Walk-Off Systems

  • Protective
  • Safe
  • Low-Maintenance

No matter what type of commercial flooring you have, you’ll typically want walk-offs; These are the areas of matting or carpet tile at entrances. Walk-off systems capture soil and contaminants as people enter your building, protecting your flooring and preventing slips and falls.

Ideal Flooring For: All commercial spaces.
