What Are The Easiest Floors To Clean and Maintain for Your Home Office?

As much as we all need to prioritize the look of our floors, we can’t escape the need to make sure that our floors are practical and don’t cause us any unnecessary stress or maintenance, especially when choosing the flooring for your home office. You want something that looks good, but doesn’t take a lot of time to maintain it – after all your time would be better spent working!  So what are the most practical flooring options? If you’re looking at purchasing a new flooring that’s highly practical, but not sure where to start, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s have a look at the most practical flooring choices for your home office…

Luxury Vinyl Tiles

In terms of the most practical, LVT is by far the most practical choice on the market and is ideal if you’re wanting something totally practical that’s not going to cause you any extra work or stress, then LVT is the way to go. It is water, stain and scratch proof, perfect for rooms that see high exposure to these elements such as the kitchen or bathroom, but also looks clean and modern in a home office. Cleaning is very simple too, with only soap and water needed for mopping with a quick sweep twice a week or so, no specialist floor cleaner! You don’t even need to sacrifice style with LVT either, it replicates natural products so beautifully that often it’s impossible to tell them apart!


Next in the running is definitely laminate, a very practical flooring choice. Not only is laminate very affordable, with it perhaps being the most affordable flooring choice, it needs little to no maintenance to keep it looking fresh as the day you bought it. Mopping and sweeping is all that needs to be done with laminate and again it’s not necessary to use any specialist floor cleaner. Additionally to this, it is scratch, stain and water resistant, however it cannot cope with high abundances of these, so just be aware. If damage does occur, it will need to be replaced. 

Engineered Wood

Wood flooring is very popular and has been for many years. However it is not the most practical option, which can be disappointing if you’ve set your heart on it! With this being said, highly sophisticated engineered wood has been developed. It is much more practical than solid wood, much better at resisting moisture and scratches. However, it is not as good as resisting these elements than laminate and LVT, so just be aware of this. It is a great choice for a home office that’s probably not going to suffer from a lot of foot traffic and exposure to the elements.

Choosing your flooring for your home office doesn’t need to be stressful, especially if you look for some options that are easy to maintain and look great.
