As types of flooring go, rubber flooring is not always the first to spring to mind. Often thought of as the reserve of gyms or children’s play centres, this material actually has an awful lot going for it for those after a practical and beautiful flooring choice for their home.

Rubber flooring comes in a wide range of patterns, finishes, textures and colours and is suitable for all kinds of rooms — plus many ranges are highly eco-friendly too.
