If home is where the heart is, your shed is where your hobbies are. Many properties include or have the space for a stand-alone shed. These structures are great for everything from storing your outdoor toys and working with your hands, to hanging out with a few friends.  

Whether you’re renovating an old structure or putting in a new one, you may wonder what flooring you should use in your shed. Landmark Interiors put this blog together to answer that and shed some light on what’s the best option for you. 

There’s a good chance that when you think of a shed, you have an idea of what you’d like to use it for. It could be a tool shed, a storage shed, or something in between. It can vary from person to person, so there’s no one specific type of flooring that’s best for a shed. Your best bet is to choose the flooring that reflects what you want to use your shed for.   

For example, if you’re planning on storing your lawn or landscaping tools out there, consider a rubber sports flooring options. They’re easy to clean and moisture-resistant. Additionally, if you’re going to be doing some woodworking or just plan on having a general workspace, rubber flooring’s sound dampening will also come in handy.  

Plus, rubber tile options like Sports Strength and Sports Today can be easily pieced together to help you customize just how much flooring you need for your space.  

On the other hand, if you’re creating your own private space, like a man cave or a she shed, you’ll want to think about style just as much as practicality. Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank (LVT) flooring offers a natural aesthetic that’s made to last. It’s available in tons of different colors and shades, and can stand up to scratches and dents too.  

Since your shed is outdoors, it’s up to you just how much of the comforts of home it’ll have. If the shed is finished and temperature controlled, you can comfortably put any type of flooring in. However, if it’s not temperature-controlled, you’ll have to account for Mother Nature.  

To adapt to changing temperatures and humidity throughout the year, it’s best to avoid using planks and stick with vinyl sheets instead.  Tile is also a good option since, much like rubber flooring, it’s easy to customize the flooring for smaller rooms.  

Once you’ve made your decision, it’s time to have the flooring installed. Whether you’re doing it DIY or hiring a contractor, make sure the flooring has a sufficient expansion gap. They’re always necessary, but it’s especially important in a shed that’s not temperature controlled.
