Having a dedicated room to exercise at home was already becoming popular, and the pandemic has turned it into a firm trend. With the unexpected timely closure of gyms and yoga studios, people are looking for an alternative in their own homes.
With their basic equipment, make-shift pain caves are being swapped for well-equipped rooms that are more than just a place to work up a sweat. Lounge chairs, atmospheric lighting and plants are popping up alongside smart fitness machines and yoga mats. It goes without saying that a multifunctional sports room can’t make-do with just any kind of floor. It needs a soft floor that can also take knocks, like LURF® Alpha from Quick-Step.
Between pushing yourself to the limit and cosiness
Home gyms are often multifunctional rooms, not solely for vigorous swift sessions or zen moments, but also providing space to relax and unwind. Thus the design of the room is just as important as pushing yourself to the limit. Think about using tactile, natural materials and soft shades of colour to radiate calm and harmony. The presence of plants also has a positive effect, bringing home the healing power of nature.
Soft and yet firm flooring
With no doubts, a multifunctional sports room will require a soft floor that can also withstand knocks and rumbles. LURF® Alpha comes with a protective top layer and strong core, protecting the floor against scratches and the impact of heavy objects such as weights. The surface feels warm and soft and is perfect for exercising upon, while the sound-absorbing qualities of vinyl promote a sense of calmness. Finally, the durability of LURF® Alpha goes hand-in-hand with the natural look and feel of wood or concrete, tying in perfectly with the new wellness design philosophy.
With the development of LURF® Alpha Vinyl, an ultra-strong floor with a soft touch and a natural look, the private gym is within everyone’s reach.
