DECOR SOURCEBOOK – RUBBER FLOORING!!

Rubber Flooring BlackDraughty old floors, messy cats who insist on drinking from the sink taps and splashy baths are starting a grout cracking, loose tile nightmare in this house. The ceramic tiles are pretty slippery and chilly under foot too. After seeing all these interesting images over on pinterest, I have gone off on a mission to investigate rubber flooring. We are going for a rustic kitchen (not log cabin rustic but battered and worn rustic) with (dare I say the over used words) – industrial details – and hoping to throw in a utilitarian layer also. Sooo, this type of flooring especially the slate look – below right – could work in there. Rubber FlooringWe are loving working with new materials, discovering things we never thought to use in our old house. I am just mad for all aspects of interior decorating, from putting together an inspiration board to designing and sourcing all the elements for a room, so I’m definitely open to trying something new – especially if it means no more grout! Do you have any rooms with floors like this? You can get some amazing colours if you are feeling bold, of course I am staying safe and sticking with greys, lets not go crazy, I am strangely drawn to the lime green bathroom floor below though!Rubber Flooring ColourI like the sheen and non broken up look of the rubber floor covering in the kitchen above, the tiles in ours at the moment are horrid, they always look dirty and are badly in need of replacing so I won’t feel too bad ripping them up, especially to replace them with something sensible like a rubber or non slip flooring for when I am flooding the kitchen with the washing machine or chasing those naughty cats about!Rubber Flooring Rubber Flooring GreyAs well as the safety and fun sides to rubber, there is the utilitarian minimalist edge which my husband loves. These clean white spaces above are ultra modern and on the left the floor reflects the light around the space and on the right it just adds a layer of texture to a simple room scheme. I have some samples that I ordered arriving soon and can’t wait to compare them, so what do you think?

    I’m obsessed with flooring at the moment as I’m trying to decide on a new one for my flat. My brother-in-law has a bright yellow rubber floor in his bathroom and it looks great. Also feels really good underfoot and easy to clean. Good choice!

      Great to hear Katy, ! I wondered if some might think I was crazy! But I like to mix styles x

    I think one aspect which will attract customers who want a modern look is the easy to maintain flooring.

    What a great alternative to tiles.

    We have only just moved home and are contemplating just what the hell to do with the cavernous kitchen with its oodles of space and vaulted ceiling.

    Think it would really improve its wow factor with this sort of flooring….off to investigate further!

    Hello!
    I love the lime floor from the bathroom and I did contact every floor direct, but they don’t do the lime colour. Do you know from who can I get it?
    thank you
    Tatiana

    Thank you Jeksa!

    I had a look but they are tiles, and with texture. What I like from the lime is that looks smooth and no tiles.
    Will keep looking!
    thanks
