Furnish your Office with modern Global carpets

When it comes to decorating your office, the wide array of options can be daunting. Deciding how to cover the floor is a particularly significant design to make, but using a carpet can help make it easy. Often, the style of carpet installed is not always suitable for office. So what is the best type of carpet for office?

Short Pile

A short pile provides easier movement for an office chair on wheels and better accommodation for heavy office furniture and equipment. A carpet with a low profile is ideal for office environments.

Looped berber styles can be ideal for offices, as they generally have a lower profile than residential cut-pile carpets. If you are considering a berber, make sure that you keep a consistent level as opposed to a style with varying heights, which can increase the potential for snagging.

Consider Commercial

Commercial carpets such as Baycurrents are designed specifically for use in office environments. While they are obviously geared towards offices that will receive high volumes of traffic, they can still be great choices for home offices, as they have many features that contribute to high performance. Commercial carpets are typically either very short cut-pile carpets or low-profile level carpets. Either style would work in an office. Most people feel that the cut-pile commercial carpets look more residential and less ‘industrial’ than low-profile level carpets, and so they can be a good fit in an office. Typically, though, the cut-pile commercial carpets are a bit more expensive than the low-profile level carpet.

Many commercial carpets feature protection against “zippering” – when a pull in one loop causes subsequent loops in the same row to also pull loose. Zippering occurs because the carpet was essentially stitched in a straight line, so when one loop is pulled, it pulls the next loop in line. To prevent zippering, many commercial carpets are stitched in a zig-zag pattern, so that there is no loop along the same line.

Offices are subjected to high amounts of traffic, so there is more need for zippering protection in the carpet. You may want to consider it if you are choosing a commercial carpet for your office.

Anti Zippering


Unless you run highly sophisticated and complex technology and machinery in your office, you likely do not require a carpet with enhanced anti-static properties. The anti-static treatment found in most carpets should suffice. Heavy-grade commercial carpets, designed for institutional settings such as healthcare and laboratories, offer increased static protection.

Final Tip

No matter what style of carpet you choose for your office, be sure to place a protective mat under the chairs, to prevent damage from the chair rolling across the surface of the carpet (which can lead to excessive wear and potential snags). Also, consider choosing a color that complements the working environment that you’re in.
