Specialty Flooring: A Floor For Every Need
Flooring goes beyond traditional tile, hardwood and carpet. Ever wonder what your gym floor is made of? Or dreamed of a classic checkered garage? Specialty flooring covers all your bases and offers you a floor for every need.
We all know a little bit about traditional home flooring. I mean, we’ve grown up walking on it our entire lives. If you ask a random person on the street what tile flooring is, odds are pretty good they will not give you a blank-starred, deer-in-headlights, confused look. However, many people don’t know anything about the world of rubber, foam and garage flooring! If you’ve ever wondered what type of flooring you need for a home gym, or to create cushion for small children, or to make a sweet, expensive-looking garage, then you’ve come to the right place! Today we’re talking about rubber, foam and garage flooring.
Rubber flooring is one of the most popular specialty flooring options on the market. This is, no doubt, due to its versatility. Although the most common use for rubber is for home and commercial gym flooring, rubber is also a great option for pets, boats, indoor sports centers, playgrounds and more. Choose from tiles, rolls, and mats for traditional rubber flooring.
Playground rubber comes in tiles, mulch, and mats. All rubber comes at varying thicknesses suitable for everything from minimal traffic to heavy-duty, high impact workouts. Just like your traditional floor, you want to be able to customize your look; rubber flooring comes in over a dozen color options in everything solid color to a multi-colored confetti look.
For nurseries, daycare centers, light workouts and more, people are turning to foam flooring. Options for foam flooring includes tiles and mats. Kids are notorious for living with no fear (one of the best and scariest things about them), and as parents/caretakers, it is so important to let them play, experiment and enjoy some amount of freedom. However, the worry about safety is legit. Head bumps on hard floors can become concussions, falling onto tile can mean broken bones, etc. Foam tiles can easily lay on top of your existing floor and protect your kiddos from those bumps and bruises. You can also mix and match tiles to create fun, vibrant patterns. Foam tiles and mats are also commonly used for anti-fatigue (great for places where you may stand for a long period of time), martial arts, gymnastics and trade shows.
Let the fun begin! You may not realize that their are options to spruce up your garage floor beyond epoxy; options that you can install yourself with no experience necessary! The two main options for garage flooring are tiles and rolls. Both options are designed to add an element of design to your garage, while still practical enough to stand up to using the garage as it was originally intended: for parking the car. Garage rolls are affordable with a quick and easy install, while tiles offer more options including, my personal favorite, the classic checkered look. There are so many color and texture options that the possibilities are endless–the sky is your limit!
