By Lisa Hobbie Created: May, 2020 - Modified: August, 2023

If you are trying to make the decision of whether or not to install a practice dance floor for home studio use, you may be ready to research the many options available. 

From different materials and price points to different sizes and styles, there are so many factors to consider. Among the many things you’re likely thinking about, cost is probably at the top of the list. 

Although your practice dance floor for home will possibly be one of the most expensive items you purchase for your room or space, it’s important not to be tempted to just go with the cheapest floor you can find. You want to select one that will be durable, safe, attractive, and reliable for years to come. Where it may be tempting to buy an old, recycled floor, or, one from some online sale site, your floor will likely represent the notion that, “you get what you pay for.” 

At Greatmats, you will get the best bang for your buck! Not only is Greatmats known for its quality, service, and dependability, it is also recognized for its value and unbeatable warranties. There are flooring options to suit any preference and budget, with the cost depending on the style and size you choose. Regardless of which option you select, a new practice dance floor for home use can be an affordable DIY project when you select one of these products:

Home Marley Dance Floor - Average $3-6 Per Sq Ft

Adagio Marley Home Dance Floor
Marley floors are among the most popular choices when it comes to selecting a practice dance floor for home. These types of floors are used on the stage, in the studio, and everywhere in between, and they are available for specific and general dance purposes, so it’s great if you’re also able to have this flooring in your home practice space. They are made of long-lasting vinyl material, won’t absorb liquids, and come in portable, semi-permanent, and permanent installation options. They give dancers the traction they need.

Home Dance floor Adagio Kit

If you have a hard, flat surface like wood in your dance space, a home Adagio dance floor package is an excellent option that will deliver amazing results at around $5.50 per square foot. This Rosco Adagio Marley floor works well for ballet, tap, jazz, and lyrical. It works well with hard or soft shoes, or, bare feet. To install this 10.5x10 foot floor, simply unroll and tape down using the tape provided. The resulting floor is extremely tough and durable, and it can be installed and rolled back up to transport or store it, as needed. This flooring provides great traction and is slip resistant - but it still allows freedom of movement. For the best dance floor over wood this is it.
