I'm considering replacing the flooring in my kitchen with rubber flooring.  My girlfriend uses crutches but it doesn't stop her from cooking.  I'm terrified that she is going to slip and fall and seriously injury herself while in the kitchen.  Is rubber flooring the best choice or is there something better?

RE: rubber flooring in kitchen
For your situation, rubber would be a safe choice.  It's slip resistant, cushions falls, and is great for kitchens.  Did you check out the rubber section on here?  Its a great source to learn more about rubber flooring.  Good luck with your purchase!

RE: rubber flooring in kitchen
I agree.  Rubber is a great choice in kitchens.  Its often used in commercial kitchens.

RE: rubber flooring in kitchen
thanks for your opinions!  Sounds like I will be going with rubber flooring.  That or possibly cork.  Again, thanks for everyone's help on here!

cork is also a good choice as long as it is a wuality cork.  Be sure to use the buyers guide on here if you buy cork to make sure you get a good one.

RE: rubber flooring in kitchen
I personally would choose rubber because I heard that cork will gouge really easy since it is soft.
