Best Flooring Options for Wheelchairs



WHEN IT COMES TO WHEELCHAIRS AND FLOORS, THEY HAVEN’T BEEN KNOWN TO PLAY WELL WITH ONE ANOTHER. BETWEEN THE TIRE MARKS, THE INDENTS, AND THE IMPOSSIBLE TO PUSH ON CARPET IT IS NO SECRET WHY WHEELCHAIRS ARE VERY PICKY WITH WHAT FLOORING WORKS BEST. NOT ALL FLOORING IS CREATED EQUAL WHEN IT COMES TO PUSHING A WHEELCHAIR, BUT THERE ARE SOME GREAT OPTIONS THAT CAN OPTIMIZE FUNCTION AND BEAUTY IN YOUR HOME. HERE ARE OUR FAVORITE WHEELY ACCESSIBLE FLOORING OPTIONS.


Concrete

  • OMG WE LOVE ALL THINGS CONCRETE AND A GOOD CONCRETE FLOOR WILL ALWAYS HAVE OUR HEART. PROS:

  • DURABLE

  • EASY TO CLEAN

  • GREAT OPTION FOR POWER CHAIRS

  • LOOKS GREAT AS IT WEARS

  • AESTHETICALLY TIMELESS AND COOL CONS:

  • DIFFICULT TO INSTALL

  • CAN CRACK IF INSTALLED IMPROPERLY

  • IS COLD ON THE FEET FOR OUR WALKING FRIENDS


Engineered Hardwood

  • ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORING HAS THE CLASSIC WARMTH OF WOOD BUT IS ENFORCED WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE MATERIALS. LOOK FOR A MATTE, LIGHT, AND WIDE PANK OPTION TO REDUCE TIRE TRACKS. PROS:

  • CLASSIC AND BEAUTIFUL

  • CAN BE SANDED DOWN IF/WHEN NEED BE

  • CREATES WARMTH IN A SPACE CONS:

  • IS NOT WATERPROOF, CAN NOT BE USED IN BATHROOMS

  • NOT IDEAL FOR POWER CHAIRS


Porcelain Tile


THE MOST VERSATILE FLOORING. CAN BE USED ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE. FOR FLOORING WE LIKE TO USE TILES WITH VARIATION IN COLOR TO HIDE DIRT AND TIRE TRACKS. WE BELIEVE TILE IS ONLY AS BORING AS YOU MAKE IT SO JAZZ IT UP A BIT WITH A COOL PATTERN.

PROS:

  • DURABLE

  • BUDGET FRIENDLY

  • VERSATILE

  • EASY TO CLEAN

CONS:

  • HARD TO REMOVE

  • CAN BE DATED (DEPENDING ON THE TILE)

  • GROUT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO CLEAN




Flooring and wheelchairs don't have to be enemies, with these selections they can become fast friends!
