Choosing the right flooring for your business, classroom, or healthcare facility can be a daunting task. While commercial flooring dealers have a lot of products to choose from, it can be hard to know what you’re getting into before you sign on the dotted line.
In the last 24 years, the team here at King Business Interiors has seen and heard pretty much everything when it comes to workspace flooring needs. Because the selection process alone can often surface more questions than answers, we’ve compiled the top five questions you should be asking to protect your investment long term.
How To Choose The Right Company To Partner With
There’s nothing more frustrating than partnering with a company that doesn’t take the time to truly understand your unique goals when it comes to commercial flooring selection. There’s an art to helping businesses like yours craft a solid foundation that is durable enough to support daily operations. An ideal partnership should consist of people who care and position themselves as an extension of your own team. This means helping you find flooring products that last while meeting your aesthetic, price, and deadline needs.

Questions You Should Be Asking Your Commercial Flooring Dealer
What products are the best fit for my space?
This answer can differ depending on your industry. When you partner with King, our team will meet with you to evaluate your space and determine what type of product will work based on your aesthetic, budget, and durability needs.
Will your team provide me with enough options to find something I like and can afford?
We represent the top commercial flooring mills in the country, this allows us to provide you with options that will suit your budget and needs. Different grades of flooring provide different benefits. For instance, planning for a high traffic area differs from selecting for a private office. Your project manager will work within your budget to find products that will deliver lasting results.
Do you provide flooring samples?
Unlike other dealers, we won’t just show you sample books. We provide you with larger samples that will allow you to see possible installation directions, get a feel for the pattern, scale and any color variations. Sample books only paint a small picture of what the finished product will look like, and by providing large format samples we help ensure our customers are happy with their selections.
What is the process once I sign the contract?
Simplicity is key. Our main objective is keeping the project as simple and transparent as possible. Depending on the size of your project, a deposit may be required. Once flooring is ordered, you’ll be instantly updated regarding how long it will be until materials arrive. When it does, your project manager works with you to schedule installation. Don’t worry about facilitating contractors and materials – we handle it all and will be on site come installation day to ensure everything hums along perfectly. Should hiccups happen, we act as your advocate to make things right. That’s the true King difference!
What is my role as things progress? What do I need to be prepared for?
Sometimes clients are caught off guard because the process above involves many contributors. Your King point of contact is always accessible to answer any questions you – or your team – may have regarding next steps. Never be afraid to ask us anything. After all, we’re here to help deliver a well designed high performing space.
