People rarely notice a room’s floor, yet these fixtures greatly affect a room’s comfort, noise-level and mood. For schools and gyms, it can even affect safety and functionality.

More than ever, flooring is becoming a major concern among wellness spaces. The right kind of flooring can save any establishment the labor and cost of maintenance and ensure that their patrons are safe and comfortable to move around. Aesthetics are also an incredibly important aspect of choosing a floor. Even color can affect your customers’ mood and experience. Here are a few examples of how flooring can greatly impact a wellness facility’s look and feel.

1. Sophisticated

2. Party Fun


With Gymbox’s inclination for the unconventional and quirky, they chose to have their floor accented with EPDM rubber chips. Reminiscent of confetti, these chips add to the gym’s party vibe. Finally, they look great under strobe lights.

3. Functional


Graphics can be a great way to enhance the functionality of any floor. These gyms use theirs as built-in guides for exercises and workouts. Markings can also be a great way to demarcate certain areas of your space and maximize your floor. They can also use it to direct foot traffic to guide patrons through your space.

4. Retro

5. Natural/Organic
