  • 2020-11-15

If you want to make the floor more creative, you can consider trying a rubber floor. Rubber flooring is traditionally associated with places like gyms, where its durable surface can stand up to impacts from dropped weights.

Pros of Rubber Flooring

Rubber flooring is very durable. This is why it is so often used in athletic spaces like gyms. A well cared for rubber floor can last for up to 20 years or more. Rubber works well in high traffic spaces and is less likely to scuff, dent, tear, or wear than other floor coverings.

Rubber is a very low maintenance flooring option. It is incredibly easy to keep it clean, and doesn’t require any extra work on your part. Spills can be easily wiped up, and dirt swept away.

Rubber is antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. Along with being easy to keep clean, the composition of rubber floors makes them naturally resistant to fungus, mold, and other allergens. This natural resistance to bacteria makes it ideal for people with asthma or allergies.

Rubber is incredibly versatile, with a huge range of styles, colors, textures, and more. There are tile and sheet versions, flat or patterned looks, and a multitude of colors available. While traditionally only coming in gray or black, modern rubber flooring can look trendy and stylish with all sorts of interior design styles.

Rubber is resilient and soft, which is why it is a favored flooring choice for gyms, so it feels good underfoot, unlike hard floorings such as tile, which can cause foot aches and joint pain when stood on for long periods of time.

Rubber is a safe flooring material because it is very resistant to fire and burns, and it is non-toxic when burned.

Rubber has sound-dampening qualities, which cause it to muffle loud noises or the sound of people walking on it. This also relates to rubber being and excellent insulator.

Cons of Rubber Flooring

The biggest drawback to rubber flooring for many people is that it can be quite expensive. This makes it prohibitively expensive for some people, or if you’re flooring a large area.

Some people may not like the look of rubber flooring. While it can look trendy and stylish in more modern homes, it might clash with a more traditionalist design ethic.

Rubber can have a characteristic odor that some people find unpleasant.

While rubber is generally stain resistant there are some things, like certain detergents, that will cause it to stain.
