Rubber flooring is a common favorite for fitness spaces because of its shock absorption quality and sound control properties. It’s also easy to install and maintain, making it a great choice for consumers looking for a low-maintenance solution. Lately, many companies have been building gyms for their employees in their existing buildings. In this case, rubber flooring can be a great choice since the product controls excessive noise helping to keep the “working” and “working out” areas separate.
There are a lot of great rubber flooring products out there; browse these options from Gerflor for some ideas.
Vinyl flooring is another popular choice for gyms since the product is both durable and comfortable. However, designers can opt for styles that resemble hardwood or other sleek textiles for a more aesthetically pleasing look. This makes vinyl a fan favorite for those looking for the perfect mix of simplicity and style when designing or updating a commercial fitness space.
Lighter flooring can be utilized to make your space appear larger. This is particularly appealing for dance or yoga studios. This vinyl sheet by Patcraft in the shade, “Light Cherry” has the look of light hardwood flooring without the hassle, and it’s a great choice for creating an airy and chic atmosphere.
While knowing your options is a great start, it’s important to remember that not all flooring types work for each commercial space. That’s why we encourage you to enlist the help of a commercial flooring specialist, like our experts at CFIC! We’ll analyze your space and needs to ensure you receive the best product and installation for your commercial area.
