Much like the fresh take on basements, the home gym is becoming a place for smart and fun design! Fitness and health is becoming more and more a focus, and with most homes being built with a home gym- renovated to include a space for working out, what better way to motivate (and keep you burning calories) than a space you love being in!
Check out this zen home gym, with calm blue walls and light flooring, the space feels clean and relaxing. Keeping the paint consistent makes the space feel larger and pot lights give the room a comfortable glow.
For flooring, use hard and forgiving materials- this is a space that can really get beat up! Between dropping weights and the heavy equipment, you want to make sure the flooring is durable and will stand the test of time. Cork is a popular choice, with it’s ability to retain its shape and warmth underfoot it is clean and easy choice.
Try the Corkcomfort from Wicanders, in a natural burl look or a modern deep chocolate stain.
