Additional Flooring Considerations
Seams and Edges
A correctly installed floor, coupled with edges, ramps, and door thresholds, lends a polished appearance to any home gym.
Moisture and Hygiene
A waterproof gym floor is an ideal choice to resist water spills, moisture and sweat, thus providing an odorless environment. Additionally, it is more manageable to clean and helps avoid mold and mildew.
Design and colour
The owner's preference for the color of the floor is paramount, yet coordinating with the décor of the room is recommended for an optimal training session. Neutral and dark colors provide certain advantages, like better hiding of dirt and debris, facilitating routine maintenance. Black is not the only option.
The durability of the product depends on various elements, some of which may include budgetary limitations, the amount of floor usage, the desired color, the need for acoustic design, and the type of equipment used. Typically, higher quality surfaces will endure longer and maintain their color.
Expansion and Contraction
Temperature fluctuations may lead to contraction and expansion of flooring; thus, it is imperative for users to contemplate room lighting and temperature as well as underfloor heating when creating a home gym.
