Question - I have seen places that had the thick rubber floor mats
that came in “tiles” and interconnected. I use the thick rubber mats
wherever I stand a lot (got mine from Grainger), and I am wondering
how they would work for the whole floor?
The issues with concrete have been covered. As one with allergies
who lives in a hot/humid climate, carpet would be out for me. It
holds dust, mold, mildew, etc., etc.!
I have wood floors in my jewelry “studio” as it is in my house
proper, but concrete in my art studio, which is sort of under the
house and houses my VERY heavy printing press and paper press. My
concrete floor is finished smooth, and painted with a commercial
concrete paint. It has been there 10 years now, and works very well,
no moisture problems, etc. As I said, I have the rubber pads in the
places where I do a lot of standing, so the concrete has not been a
problem for me - on the other hand, I don’t do my jewelry down there,
and the idea of a stone hitting the concrete floor makes me cringe!
You can also purchase “wood” flooring that is really a laminate, and
can “float” on top of whatever subsurface you have. That might be an
Beth in SC where it is finally genuinely cold (in the 30’s F!)
