What kind of flooring do you have in your kitchen? Rubber kitchen flooring is becoming more and more popular, both in homes and in commercial settings, and there is a good reason for it. More people are discovering the unique benefits that rubber flooring offers, and how they are especially valuable in a setting like a kitchen that is prone to spills, heavy usage and wear and tear. But many people still haven’t heard of the idea of rubber kitchen flooring, so let’s take a look at what exactly makes it such a great idea and why it is a great choice for any kitchen space.

First off it’s important to understand what exactly rubber kitchen flooring is. Rubber floors are a cutting-edge product. When you think of rubber you might think of something soft and bouncy, but the rubber used in professional grade flooring is a highly durable product. It’s a very dense rubber that still feels comfortable to walk on but at the same time is extremely resilient. Often, rubber kitchen flooring is made with tiny flecks of one color rubber blended into a different color, to create an attractive flecked or speckled look. This look is not only attractive to the eyes, it also helps hide crumbs or spills so that guests don’t notice them easily. Rubber flooring is also available in solid colors for those who prefer a clean, sleek modern look in their kitchen.

The aesthetics are just one of the many benefits of rubber kitchen flooring. Rubber flooring is also incredibly durable. This is important because the kitchen is often one of the highest traffic areas of a house. You do a large number of chores there, are frequently standing up while doing so, and many people chat with company in the kitchen while they prepare dinner or make drinks. Many conventional floor surfaces end up getting scuffed or worn within just a few years after installation. A flooring surface that can’t stand up to basic kitchen usage shouldn’t be marketed for kitchens in the first place. Rubber floors are very resilient, are designed for high traffic, and last for years.

FLEXCO’s Repel Rubber Flooring for kitchens is also incredibly resistant to staining and spills. In fact, Repel Rubber Flooring is specifically designed to be oil and grease resistant. Just like you would expect from a rubber surface, the floors are impervious to water and spills will just pool up instead of soaking in, whereas wood floors will absorb water and warp over time. And unlike ceramic tile or vinyl, Repel Rubber Flooring is easy to clean and resists staining. In many ways it is the ideal floor surface for kitchens and bathrooms.

If you’re looking at options for your kitchen floor, Repel Rubber Flooring is the way to go.
