Are you considering rubber flooring for your home in Farnborough? It’s a great choice. Rubber flooring is another one of those products originally used mainly within commercial interiors and gradually adopted by interior designers and homeowners looking for stylish yet practical ideas for their homes.

Rubber flooring is super-tough, in fact it’s often used for seriously-high footfall areas such as airport terminals, hospitals and schools. Rubber flooring offers many benefits, since it is:

  • Hardwearing and durable
  • Hygienic
  • Sound absorbent
  • Comfortable underfoot
  • Flexible and resilient
  • Easy to maintain
  • Fade resistant
  • Available in many colours and textures
  • Environmentally-friendly

The soft feel of vinyl flooring underfoot makes rubber flooring an excellent alternative to cold, hard floor tiles or wooden flooring in kitchens and bathrooms.

Rubber flooring is available in rolls or as tiles and there is a huge range of colours and textures to choose from. As well as solid colours in almost every shade imaginable, rubber flooring can come with wood, marble and granite effects to provide the look of natural wood and stone.

A range of textures is also offered, such as the well-known bubble wrap-like raised discs, or a slightly-textured anti-slip finish.

Specialist rubber flooring is available with fire-resistant, electrostatic and sound absorption properties.

Due to the naturally dense surface no PVC coatings are required, creating a much healthier internal environment which is easier to clean and less susceptible to dirt.

Unlike some vinyl flooring products it does not contain any plasticizers or halogens (e.g. chlorine).

Natural rubber is a rapidly renewable raw material. Rubber flooring is environmentally-friendly in its manufacture and can be easily and usefully recycled at the end of its (long) life as a floor covering.
