Rubber isn’t just for tires and boots! Rubber’s unique benefits make it a perfect flooring choice for both homes and commercial spaces — especially for specialized rooms. 

Rubber is a solid, elastic material. Natural rubber is made from natural latex, but rubber can also be created synthetically.

There are many styles of rubber flooring. Solid-colored rubber floors are often found in garages and home gyms. For spaces that work best with a more natural look, rubber floors are also available in styles like stone and marble. Matte finishes, polished finishes, dimpled tiles, and speckled tiles are other rubber flooring options that can be fit to your unique space.

Rubber Flooring Benefits

  • Soft — Thanks to its elastic qualities, rubber is a comfortable flooring option that your feet and tumble-prone children will thank you for. 
  • Durable — Rubber floors are hardy and tough. Dropped weight plates, energetic kids, and even the fiercest of footsteps will not damage rubber flooring.
  • Quiet — Rubber flooring naturally absorbs sound, keeping your home or commercial space more peaceful.
  • Slip-resistant — Rubber floors are easier and safer to walk on due to the extra grip provided by the material.
  • Water-resistant — Rubber flooring will not absorb water and is not at risk for mold or water damage. 
  • Chemical-resistant — Often found in industrial spaces, rubber can be exposed to a range of harsh chemicals without corroding or becoming damaged.
  • Eco-friendly — Rubber is recyclable! Rubber floors can be used to create something else once they’ve run their course as flooring. (But because rubber is so durable, it’ll be a while until you’d need to replace your floors!)
