This includes alternative flooring options that, although they may be outside the box, might be just what you’re looking for. Read on as we discuss what you should know about rubber flooring.

Durable Construction

Although we tend to think of materials like hardwoods and porcelain when it comes to durability, rubber is one of the toughest flooring choices around. It can take high amounts of traffic and the wear and tear of daily life. It’s surface absorbs impacts very well, making it much more forgiving than harder flooring options.


We all know about the benefits of renewable flooring materials, such as bamboo, wool, and laminate, but did you know that rubber also makes it on the list? Rubber flooring can be made from 100% recycled material making it a great choice for the environmentally conscientious homeowner. What’s even better? When your rubber flooring is on its last legs, it can be recycled again!

Easy Maintenance

Rubber is naturally resistant to water, making it impervious to spills and stains. If and when a spill does occur, you won’t have to worry about it soaking in and potentially damaging your floors. Regular sweeping and mopping with warm, soapy water is all you need to keep your floors clean and looking new.

Where Can You Install Rubber Flooring?

Thanks to the benefits mentioned above, rubber flooring is a great choice for areas that see a lot of foot traffic. Thanks to their resistance to moisture, rubber flooring is a great choice for below-grade basements, or home gyms. Their soft and sound-dampening surface also makes them a great choice for dens or playrooms for families with children.
