In late 2015, Rightsize launched Facility Flooring, our commercial flooring division company that offers a wide selection of carpet tile, broadloom carpet, and hard surface flooring including vinyl, composition tile (VCT), luxury vinyl tile (LVT) planks and wood flooring.
Though Rightsize has been selling commercial flooring to clients for five years, the Facility Flooring brand is an evolution of our business model and offers clients best-in-class products.
“Facility Flooring provides a much more robust product offering than we had before,” said Rightsize President, Mason Awtry. “We are dealing directly with the mill to access the highest quality carpet tile and broadloom products and we now have the ability to offer union and non-union installation services on a national basis.”
Facility Flooring product manufacturers include Mannington, Amtico, J&J Invision, J&J Kinetix, Shaw Contract Group, and BOLYU. Awtry sees 90 percent of sales revolving around carpet tiles, also known as carpet squares or modular carpet.
“Carpet tiles are commonly used in commercial settings such as retailers, airports and banks. It’s much easier to swap carpet tiles out if there is a spill or stain, which inevitably happens in high traffic areas,” said Awtry. “Our clients also gravitate toward the tiles because they can accommodate a much broader design aesthetic including various sizes, colors and fiber types. With the help of our design team, clients can mix and match colors and textures, taking full advantage of a multitude of design opportunities.”
Facility Flooring’s hard surface offerings include VCT, LVT, cork, marble, granite, glass, metal, ceramic and porcelain tile, and wood flooring. Awtry notes that the familiar 12” x 12” vinyl tile that companies once put in commercial bathrooms is now a thing of the past.
“Our clients are buying more of the organic-based luxury vinyl tile,” said Awtry. “The tiles are much more environmentally friendly and provide a variety of looks, from hand-scraped wood planks to natural stone-like quartz or travertine. Vinyl has been frowned upon in the past, but today if clients want the look and character of stone or read hardwood, LVT is a viable option. The number of flooring options can be overwhelming, but luckily our designers help our clients narrow down options quickly and easily based on style, price and aesthetic.”
