While researching alternative flooring options for a room in my home, I came across an intriguing possibility–rubber flooring. Yes, rubber flooring! No, it’s not just for home gyms and industrial spaces. In fact, the water-resistant properties and durability of rubber flooring make it ideal for spaces such as bathrooms and kids’ rooms. Yet it’s increasingly being used in areas such as kitchens and living rooms. Why not?! It has a modern look. It’s sturdy. It has an anti-slip quality. And you won’t believe how stylish it is! In today’s post, we feature 10 rooms with rubber floors. Ready for a closer look?
Kitchens with Rubber Flooring
The kitchen is a natural choice for a rubber flooring location, as rubber is impervious to water. Not to mention, it has an industrial look, as do many kitchens! Below we see sleek white flooring in a light-filled culinary space. [from William Goddard Photography via DHV Architects]
One style of rubber flooring I’m drawn to is the textured variety, especially when round coin-like forms are involved. Isn’t the grey flooring below a perfect choice for a kitchen with light aqua walls and white cabinetry? [photo by Lincoln Barbour via Ogawa Fisher Architects]
The rubber flooring in this modern kitchen is also textured, this time with a slightly rippled pattern that adds interest to the room. Love that shine! [from FantasyKitchen]
There seems to be a theme developing here, as once again we see grey rubber flooring in a contemporary kitchen. And dining room. And living room. A great choice for spaces that call attention to the materials that fill them, such as wood and stone. Add rubber, and you have another dimension! [from Fluid Stone Studio]
Bathrooms with Rubber Flooring
Grey is “grey-t” (ha!), but let’s take a look at some rubber flooring in vivid colors. Two of my favorites are radiant yellow and kelly green. I’m also quite taken with the blue flooring in this white bathroom, especially since accents of red are involved. [from Home Decorating Designs]
Speaking of red, this red rubber floor is unforgettable, as it brings out the red stripes in the wallpaper. Once again, we see a raised coin pattern, which creates a modern look that doesn’t take itself too seriously. [featured at Elaine Butler]
When it comes to rubber flooring, it’s hard to deny that there’s something about the color black. It adds an instant dose of elegance to rooms with white walls, and we are increasingly seeing black rubber flooring in power rooms. Wooden accents add warmth to the bathroom below. [from Dalsouple]
Rubber Flooring in Practical Spaces
I’ll end today’s post by taking a look at some practical spaces that are dressed up with rubber flooring. The image below shows the potential of rubber flooring and sheeting in areas of the home such as the walk-in closet. [from FLEXCO]
What about the laundry room?! This Seattle space is the perfect location for rubber flooring. Once again, we see flooring in grey (from Johnsonite), which pops in a room filled with wooden cabinetry and white walls. [from BUILD LLC]
And it’s hard to beat a garage and shed space with red accents, especially when the red tones appear on both pendant light and flooring. This space makes me want to tackle a DIY project! [from California Closets]
I don’t know about you, but coin-patterned rubber flooring is definitely my favorite. As far as colors go, I love a bold choice, such as red or yellow, but if in doubt, I’d probably go with grey. Would you install rubber flooring in your home?
