What Is The Best Cabin Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2020 - Modified: September, 2020

There’s nothing like escaping to a relaxing cabin nestled in the heart of a wooded retreat or lakeside oasis. Choosing the perfect decor and products to outfit the cabin will help you enjoy the space, rather than taking care of it all the time. Selecting cabin flooring should be an enjoyable task; one where you can really let your creative juices flow. Deciding on a product to suit the overall design and setting - from rustic wood cottage to inviting lake home - should take into account a number of factors. 

Great Flooring Options for Cabins

Do you want a different flooring product for each area of the cabin? For example, do you want one type of flooring in the bedroom and a different type in an open area of the cabin? 

Perhaps, you want a lighter flooring product for the second story of the cabin or loft, but a heavier and richer product in the main floor or small area of the cabin? Regardless of the cabin flooring you’re looking for, Greatmats offers a number of solutions that are ideal for your space. 

1. Convenient Carpet Tiles for Cabins

Convenient Carpet Tile for Cabins
CarpetFlex Floor Tile is a great cabin flooring solution for a room or area of the house in which a carpeted texture yet durable surface is desired. This is one of the best products if you’re looking for one that is anti-fatigue, non slip, and waterproof. 

It is made in the USA and can be installed easily with its snap together design. This modular square floor tile is a raised support system that is suitable for residential use, and it transforms any space into a warm and attractive one. This product works well in lakeside cabins or areas where moisture may be present, because it doesn’t have a foam base like traditional carpet. Instead, this carpet tile’s construction allows for airflow beneath the base, preventing dampness from getting to the carpeted fibers and offering an insulative barrier between the subfloor and carpet surface.

2. Wood Grain Foam Floor Tiles for Cabins

Although it’s not the strongest product on the market, it delivers anti-fatigue cushioning and attractiveness in a tile that is easy to clean and maintain. The closed cell foam base layer is also a great insulator.
