Most companies have a breakroom for employees to relax, grab a snack from the vending machine, or eat lunch. To increase the comfort employees feel when in the breakroom, you should consider installing commercial carpeting in it.
Sometimes, Employees Need Peace and Quiet
The best employees not only retain large amounts of knowledge and information, but they also dispense their knowledge accurately in a work-related project. However, some solutions require more preparation and mental creativity to solve. To clear his or her mind and focus solely on the work project, an employee may decide to go to the breakroom, grab a cup of tea, and focus on the problem there.
Breakrooms often attract employees who need to clear their mind because they can temporarily get away from the typical workplace distractions like the sounds of whirring computers, other employees talking on the phone, or the sounds of constant footsteps. Installing commercial carpeting will help muffle the sounds coming from the rest of the office, allowing employees to focus solely on the task at hand. The pitter-patter of feet can distract even the most mentally-focused individual, and any distraction can halt work progress.
Install commercial carpeting for your employees’ peace of mind. If you work from your home office, consider installing residential carpeting or carpet tiles to achieve the same affect.
Carpeting Increases the Breakroom’s Relaxation Options
Commercial carpeting is softer than hardwood flooring or tile, making it a great addition to any breakroom. Sometimes, employees want to take off their shoes for a few minutes and stretch their toes. Carpeting allows them to do that. An employee might want to stretch, especially his or her legs, after having sat down at their desk for hours working. Again, commercial carpeting and carpet tiles are great ways to ensure that your employees do not have to stretch on a cold or hard floor. The same applies for residential carpeting as well.
Commercial carpeting also facilitates group discussion. Employees bonding with one another can be great for office productivity, whether it is about their personal lives during their breaks, or when discussing a work solution that needs to be developed and implemented. The sound of chairs scraping the tiles or wood, however, can be incredibly irritating to some, which can sour their personality and make group discussions harder than they already are. However, with commercial carpeting or carpet tiles, employees can easily pull up a chair and join the conversation.
If you are interested in installing commercial carpeting in your office’s breakroom but you are concerned about cleaning up spills made by tea, ramen noodles, or other foods, you should consider installing carpet tiles instead. They can be easily installed, removed, cleaned, and replaced. However, tiles act exactly like residential carpeting or commercial carpeting. There really is no difference when it comes to their texture, feel, or function.
If you decide to install commercial carpeting or carpet tiles in your office breakroom, you and your employees will not be disappointed. In fact, they will most likely be appreciative of the fact you considered their welfare at work. Maximizing your employees’ happiness and contentment at work is a great way to raise morale and office productivity.
