How to Inject Personality Into Your Gym Design Using Rubber Flooring

If you’re looking for something a bit different and want your gym design to stand out, then using rubber flooring with colour and pattern is a fantastic way of adding character. Using rubber gym tiles with a design offers the same benefits as standard plain rubber such as durability and shock absorption but with more personality. Ideal for both commercial and home gyms, patterned floor options can create zones, add flair and create a more energetic ambience to your gym space.

Types of Rubber Flooring with Design

From heavy fleck to lightly flecked options to products with vibrant colours, here we look at rubber floor design options to enhance your fitness space.

Flecked Rubber Flooring

 

Simply put, this is black rubber flooring with a coloured fleck granule which creates a scattered design.  These come in a variety of colours and work brilliantly with gyms that have a signature colour, bold wall colours or to create zones.  The Interlocking Konnecta Fleckz range is the perfect option for adding some vibrancy and texture to your Gym.  With excellent shock absorption and durability at 20mm thick, these tile also come with connector pieces that seamlessly hold the tiles in place.

Block Colour Gym Flooring Tiles 

Our Indoor/Outdoor gym tiles are popular because they are available in 2 thicknesses that cover medium to high impact activity and are available in dark green or brick red.  The added benefit is that they are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.  For bold colour, we suggest our TPE premium coloured tiles which have a laminated top surface in 6 bright colour options.  These tiles are ideal for adding a bespoke pattern or creating zoned areas in your gym.

Neutral Colour Gym Flooring 

Grey is a popular colour choice for all types of floor and gym flooring is no exception. A fantastic alternative to black and a good neutral to balance out other floor types and decor colours, Grey ticks all the boxes.  We suggest Konnecta Stone Grey which is a 20mm Grey tile with a lighter grey pattern.  Part of the Konnecta premium range these tiles are renowed for super stability, endurance and style.

4 Benefits of a Patterned Rubber Floor

Gym flooring should be durable, shock-absorbent, and support heavy equipment. The right flooring for your fitness facility comes down to your needs and how you plan on using the space. Patterned or coloured flooring provides the benefits of standard black rubber gym flooring with a unique look. Here are four benefits of using alternative rubber floor options in your fitness space. 

1. Make a Small Space Look Bigger 

If your primary concern is making a space look bigger, flooring can make a massive difference. Cleverly chosen colours or designs in your gym flooring can utilise your areas better and create the illusion of a larger space.

2. More Colour Options 

When choosing a gym floor, you generally have more colour options.  This brings more choice of product and ways of designing and utilising your space.

3. Create Fitness Zones 

Gym flooring is good for creating fitness zones. For example, if you want to separate your free weights area from your floor work zone, you can do this by using different types of flooring. This creates clear zones for specific exercises and can help to separate the facility efficiently. 

4. Fits With Your Brand Image

    With a broader colour range to choose from, you can find something that perfectly fits with your brand image. This one is more relevant to commercial gyms; however, if you use your home gym to train clients as a personal trainer or instructor, then this applies to you as well. Flecked or coloured flooring is perfect for a professional gym for aligning your gym design with your company brand.  

    Final Thoughts

    Gym flooring doesn’t need to be boring. With patterned or coloured flooring, you have the benefits of premium rubber gym flooring with a colourful flair, make a small space feel bigger and align your gym to your brand image. Whether you choose block colour or flecked interlocking, choose a flooring solution that meets your needs, budget, and style.
