best home gym flooring options pros cons

Choosing the best home gym flooring can be quite difficult. The market offers so many options that may confuse everyone. We will show you some of the most popular flooring options which are available for you. The first question that you need to answer is what activity is going to take place on the floor? This will strongly influence the choice of flooring type.



Another important factor is the location of the gym. For example, if your home gym is located in the basement and you want to have a carpet flooring, you have to consider a good insulation and sub-flooring. Good ventilation is essential for home gyms, not only for the flooring, but for the whole environment.

Wood is a time-tested material and it has a very long lifespan. We associate wood gym flooring with basketball fields or large gymnasiums and sport halls. It is ideal for home gyms, of course, as long as the wood is of high quality and the floor is not exposed to moisture.

Laminate is a lot cheaper version of wood flooring and very easy to maintain. It can be used in a yoga studio for example, but you should not forget that laminate is quite slippery. Laminate can be damaged by moisture, so you have to pay special attention to ventilation. Laminate flooring is easily scratched and damaged by heavy traffic but, unlike wood, laminate cannot be sanded.

Cork is a natural material with high insulating properties. Eco-friendly, renewable and biodegradable, perhaps, this is one of the best gym flooring options. It is non-slippery, soft to the touch and with great visual appearance. On the downside is the fact that cork may tear if you dragged gym equipment across the floor.

Rubber flooring is not susceptible to any kind of contamination and is easily maintained and cleaned. It does not absorb water and more important – rubber flooring is not slippery which makes it a perfect flooring option for the home gym.

Carpet floor tiles are manufactured to be durable and withstand years of use. The special material is stain resistant, which means that the flooring will retain its appearance with time. Carpet tiles can be easily replaced, if needed and they are a cost effective flooring option.
