If you have decided that it is time to build your own gym in your home, whether in the basement or your guest room, there are a few considerations to take into account when you begin the process of choosing the best flooring for your workout room. Having your gym and workout space at home is convenient and can be a fun project as you go about creating a gym that is your own with your own specifications and personal preferences in mind. Keep this in mind as well as you run through the following home gym flooring and workout room flooring options.
Factors to Consider When Choosing Flooring
Budget, comfort, appeal, and ergonomics are the top four considerations to make when choosing the best flooring. You will also want to consider the size of the space you have to work with, and you can then begin to narrow down the available choices.
A popular flooring option for a home gym is vinyl. It is versatile, functional, and easily adapts to any space and almost any situation. You also have an extensive selection of styles and colors to choose from if you choose this option.
Vinyl flooring is flexible and offers some much-needed comfort and cushioning during your workout. It is also incredibly easy to install, and they are suitable for a large or small room. There is also very limited maintenance required for vinyl flooring. Simply wipe it down with a wet cloth. It is resistant to most water-based growths and will not grow mildew or mold. However, this type of flooring is not very shock absorbent, so it is more like a hard floor surface which can make it hard for certain types of gym equipment you might want to use.
Carpet tiles are also a popular choice for home gyms and can provide you with comfort. This option is also durable and long lasting. One of the biggest benefits of carpet tile flooring is the ease of installation. The tiles are typically interlocking, so they snap together quickly and easily. They are also soft and durable. They have proven to be longer lasting than the previously mentioned vinyl flooring option. However, this type of flooring requires more in the way of cleaning and maintenance and the carpet tiles can begin to stretch over time, which will result in the need for a professional to come in and correct the carpet.
No matter which option you choose, you can rest easy knowing that you are purchasing the best and most popular flooring options when it comes to your home gym.
