    Best Types of Flooring for Schools

    Schools, colleges and other educational institutions may require a range of different flooring options for each area. Here are some of the most common flooring options we use within schools and the areas they are best for:

    Carpet Tiles

    Carpet tiles offer a soft and comfortable surface that can create a welcoming atmosphere in classrooms and communal areas. They come in various colours and patterns, allowing complete creativity with the design while also being practical. One big benefit of carpet tiles compared to sheet carpet is how easy it is to replace if damaged or stained. This helps to ensure a cost-effective solution for long-term use.

    Areas: Classrooms & Library


    Vinyl flooring is an ideal choice for high-traffic areas in schools due to its durability, low maintenance, and cost-effectiveness. It’s water resistance and ease of installation make it suitable for bathrooms and canteens. Vinyl flooring offers a wide range of design options, providing schools with a chance to create attractive and comfortable environments.

    Areas: Bathrooms & Canteens

    Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

    LVT has become a popular choice for school flooring due to its exceptional durability and stylish look. It can replicate the appearance of natural materials like wood whilst being extremely resistant to the high levels of foot traffic usually experienced in schools and colleges. LVT is also low-maintenance, easy to clean, and resistant to scuffs and stains.

    Areas: Classrooms & Hallways

    Rubber Flooring

    Rubber flooring is another fantastic option for schools as it is highly resilient and shock-absorbent. It provides excellent slip resistance, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. Rubber flooring is not only comfortable underfoot, but it also offers acoustic benefits, minimizing noise levels in busy school environments.

    Areas: Sports Hall & Science Classrooms

    Sheet Carpet

    Whilst carpet tiles are generally preferred for the ease of replacement when damaged, sheet carpet is still used in some schools and is still a classic option for furnishing classrooms.
