The stuff under your feet matters more than you might think when it comes to your new business. Aesthetic appeal, physical longevity, and customer impressions of your new building’s interior all hinge on picking the right flooring, and so does your overall satisfaction with your purchase.

Unfortunately, the world of flooring can be a bit complex, so Miller Architects & Builders, your Saint Cloud commercial construction pros, are here to discuss a few of your options.

Solid Hardwood Flooring

This type of flooring is perfect for the business looking for nothing but luxury. As its name implies, it’s made of nothing but pure wood, and it has a price tag to reflect that.

Though it’s commonly used in residential contexts, for many companies looking to add a high-end edge to their facility, hardwood’s timeless looks and supremenly long-lasting performance make it well worth asking their construction management company about.

Epoxy Flooring

A common sight in schools, health care facilities, and manufacturing centers alike, epoxy flooring is the ideal fit for the business looking for both performance and functional looks. Because it’s high-gloss, it has a way of brightening up even the most dull looking spaces. and it's easy-to-clean, hardy nature makes it simple to maintain.

Epoxy flooring is also chemically-resistant, making it a great match for manufacturing businesses.


When it comes to occupant comfort, nothing beats carpet. It’s a great option for common rooms and gathering spaces – anywhere where congregations of people are common, but stains are not. 

Your commercial construction pro might recommend carpet if your business is focused on soothing its clients or creating a home-like space; apartment construction and senior living construction are two examples.

Vinyl Flooring

If you combined the classy good looks of hardwood and the functionality of epoxy flooring, you’d get vinyl flooring. No longer tied to the kitchy looks of the 60s, vinyl flooring is now available in a wide range of finishes, from wood-look to faux tile. And while it might not feel underfoot like the materials it’s designed to mimic, it does a pretty darn good job of fooling the eye.

If your business has customers to please but still needs a flooring that can stand up to foot traffic, consider luxury vinyl – a thicker version of its standard counterpart.
